In light of the vile attack, the city of Manchester rallied together, with different communities uniting to aid the authorities in disaster relief and rehabilitation services. Support is pouring in from all over the world, and now Ariana Grande is planning to return to the scene to help contribute to mending Manchester.

Sharing a lengthy, heartfelt statement on her Twitter page, the pop star announced that she plans to return to Manchester in the near future for a benefit concert and to spend time with the families of those affected. Read the full statement below:

This post was originally published on this site

In wake of the bombing in Manchester last weekend at an Ariana Grande concert, Live Nation has increased its security measures in hopes of preventing future catastrophes.

A notice issued to venues reads as follows:

“Due to enhanced security procedures, no bags or backpacks will be permitted into the venue except for small personal bags or purses (12″x12″x6″ max) or clear 1 gallon bags. All bags will be subject to a search. We encourage you to not bring in any bag whatsoever and make use of the express ‘no bag’ lanes.”

The statement was originally posted on Sasquatch Music Festival’s Facebook wall, but it has since been hidden. The extent of the new guidelines and how they will affect individual festivals has yet to be seen.

Live Nation is the company behind some of the country’s biggest festivals, such as EDC Las Vegas, Electric Forest, Lollapalooza, Bonnaroo and more.

Ariana Grande, others speak out following Manchester tragedy

This post was originally published on this site

Explosions rocked Manchester Arena at following Ariana Grande’s performance late last night in a tragic turn that made many music lovers’ worst nightmare a reality.  As of publication, 22 have been proclaimed dead with dozens more are injured after the apparent suicide bombing. The Islamic State has claimed responsibility, and a 23 year old has been arrested in connection to the attack.

The Manchester bombing hits close to home for the music community as we are reminded that even attending a concert, which is supposed to be an escape, puts people at risk at our current day and age.

Grande took to Twitter to express her devastation shortly after the bombing.

Fellow artists such as Dillon Francis and Martin Garrix are taking to social media to show support for Grande and attendees. Dillon Francis has even promised to pledge money to relief funds following the incident.

Fans and artists alike have come together in a show of strength and hope during this sad time for Manchester victims and the industry as a whole. We are glad that the electronic music scene has banded together to provide such overwhelming support, but devastated that it has come to this.

Listen to 3LAU’s Remix of Katy Perry and Migos’ ‘Bon Appetit’

This post was originally published on this site

Versatile producer 3LAU is as well known for his originals as he is his remixes, and today he released a brand new remix of Katy Perry’s hit “Bon Appetit” featuring Migos that is sure to gain a lot of traction. The remix is a first look into 3LAU’s style shift to a deeper house feel, which the producer asserts he will further expose through his upcoming releases. His take on “Bon Appetit” is transformative, but it retains the catchy appeal of the original track.

3LAU’s remix of Perry’s hit is also a milestone for the artist, who tweeted that just six years ago, he was remixing Perry’s music in his dorm. From “Is It Love” to his remix of Ariana Grande’s “Into You,” it seems as if everything 3LAU has touched in the past year has turned to gold, and his take on “Bon Appetit” is sure to be as well.
