In DubEra, Festivals, Florida by Maxx McInerneyLeave a Comment

Ultra Music Festival released the full lineup for the downtown Miami festival at the end of March. They added new headliners to both the DJ and Live stages.

The lineup is laced with premiering act Get Real (Green Velvet and Claude Vonstroke), Todd Terje live, Die Antwoord, Tale Of Us, and a number of other acts that have serious potential to educate the usual main stage crowd. PHASE 2 …

Firefly Music Festival Announces Final Headliner: Paul McCartney

In Festivals, Music News by erica serioLeave a Comment

As it turns out, the word throughout the rumor mill was true, Paul McCartney will be headlining Firefly Music Festival. I’ve already began pinching myself to make sure seeing a Beatle perform at a festival alongside The Killers, Kings of Leon, Snoop Dogg and Modest Mouse is not a fallacy. It will be unreal seeing Paul McCartney in the Woodlands, where the likes of Outkast, Foo Fighters, Red Hot Chili Peppers and Tom Petty have performed before. Tickets are finally going on sale …

SHOW REVIEW: Railroad Earth Plays 3 Nights at Brooklyn Bowl [Brooklyn, NY]

In New York by Chris Tart1 Comment

Photos by King Mallard Railroad Earth brought their eclectic sound to NYC’s Brooklyn Bowl this past weekend. The three-night stand proved that the band’s catalogue is truly meant to be experienced over a multi-night run as they remained spirited, energetic and unique over the six sets they delivered in Brooklyn. Night one wasn’t quite as crowded as the weekend shows, but Brooklyn still carried an energy that would rival the next two nights. Kicking things off with “Saddle of the …

Governors Ball Announces Daily Lineups

In Festivals, New York by Chris TartLeave a Comment

Governors Ball might be 3+ months away, but the organizers are quickly giving people what they want. After announcing a stellar lineup, the festival has announced their daily lineups, as demonstrated above. Daily lineups are nice, but when they announce the schedules we’ll have to argue with our friends over those painstaking decisions of “Bjork or Deadmau5? Florence or Drake?” Until then, we rejoice.
