Creamfields to host Calvin Harris as headliner for 2nd year in a rowCalvin Harris Hakkasan

It looks like Creamfields has pieced together another robust artist acumen for 2020, having previously announced The Chainsmokers headliners, and now confirming Calvin Harris to return for a sequel to his appearance at the UK stalwart event last year. Calvin came through with a danceable vengance in 2019, drawing in one of the largest crowds of the entire weekend. This year, he’ll be Saturday’s headliner, while Carl Cox slays the festival’s techno terrain. The Chainsmokers are pegged to take over Friday’s headline slot.

With new shows on the horizon, Calvin will have the perfect opportunity to rinse out his newly announced music coming this Friday: “Hypnagogic (I Can’t Wait)” and “CP-1.” These two singles are a glimpse into Calvin’s impending LP, one of the most anticipated albums coming in 2020.

Setting up shop just south of The Loop, RADIUS finds its home in Chicago’s bustling Pilsen neighborhood, home to a longtime Chicago favorite for live music, Thalia Hall.

Bringing the announcement full-circle, prospective attendees may recognize RADIUS’s owner, Nick Karounos as former owner and operator of The MID. Karounos also owns Chicago’s PRYSM nightclub and Concord Music Hall, another all-encompassing electronic epicenter.

“This project has been 4 years in the making and we are beyond excited to show Chicago and the rest of the world what we have built for music lovers of all genres,” Karounos writes in a recent release.

RADIUS’s inaugural event is pegged for February 29, featuring off-the-wall EDM all-star, the Latin Grammy-nominated Dillon Francis. Tickets go on sale this Friday, December 13 at 12PM CST here. For more dates and information, visit RADIUS’ website.

Good Morning Mix: Wake up with Carl Cox at the Opulent Temple at Burning ManCarl Co Medium

Carl Cox‘s torrential techno reign has foraged Black Rock City for over a decade, and this year was no disruption from tradition. The global DJ veteran recently released his hour-and-a-half set at the Opulent Temple stage at Burning Man. Cox brought his unequivocal energy to the majestic desert playground with a set strewn with melodies riding percussion.

With various IDs and tracks from Audiojack, Kenny Dope, wAFF and more, the set is best-spent reminiscing the fleeting nature of time or simply lavishing in the array of long-form buildups and celestial hooks.

Burning Man may only last for a week, fragments of the elusive weekend continue to surface—reminding the rest of the music community of the desert-dwelling spectacle’s all-embracing artistic artillery. Below is another unearthed memory from the depths of debauchery entertainment, delivered by Playground BRC.
