Kid Cudi says new music, tour coming in 2020Kids See Ghosts Kid Cudi 5a006bbe B80d 43cc 90ce 72958a243144

With performances at 2019’s Coachella Music & Arts Festival under his belt alongside his appearance at Miami’s recently concluded Rolling Loud, it’s clear that Kid Cudi has been effortlessly working his way through the festival circuit of late. And as per the “Pursuit Of Happiness” producer himself, Kid Cudi fans can expect these bookings to prelude some fresh new material. The rapper announced that new music would be on the way “next year,” as Cudi “work[s] the rest of this year,” presumably on the unheard productions to come.

Kid Cudi noted that he’s “in no rush to do anything right now,” but is nevertheless putting musical plans in motion, all of which will unfold in 2020. For the remainder of 2019, Cudi will continue to stop by festivals, but will save touring for 2020, when the artist plans to launch a fully fledged tour in support of the music slated to concurrently gain a release. While Cudi knows that his listeners are clamoring for a tour, he reassured his followers that he’s not only keeping busy, but has already begun “the next stage” of his presently developing sonic efforts.

A cornerstone of the Coachella Music & Arts Festival experience, Do LaB‘s carefully curated stage, rallies expert electronic acts for a high caliber lineup within the festival’s larger billing. Central to Do LaB’s diverse annual lineups are a slew of surprise guests, whom Do LaB situates among its showcased acts. In the past, Do LaB has breathed life into the age-old, highly applicable aphorism, “expect the unexpected,” by bringing the likes of SkrillexMajor Lazer, and Richie Hawtin to Coachella’s Do LaB stage for unanticipated live sets.

Do LaB continued its tradition of large-scale, surprise-guest revelation at Coachella’s recently concluded 2019 iteration, wherein Major Lazer took the decks during Weekend 1. As per Major Lazer’s musical usual, the soon-to-disband group’s set is rife with the tropically inflected dancehall sound that originally rocketed the electronic trio to sonic superstardom.

YouTube forges two-year live stream partnership with LollapaloozaLollapalooza Red Bull Tv

YouTube‘s livestream of Coachella 2019’s consecutive two weekends generated considerable traffic for the video streaming giant. The platform’s weekend one livestream racked up more than 82 million live views, to become the most-viewed Coachella weekend livestream to date. The view counts signify a surge of more than 90 percent when compared to those of 2018.

As the Coachella livestream statistics indicate, live broadcasts of major music festivals are of considerable appeal to contemporary video streamers. YouTube is currently seeking to “[double] down on music festivals,” and plans to prioritize its live coverage of the large scale events, starting with Chicago’s Lollapalooza festival. YouTube has newly entered into a two-year livestream partnership with Lollapalooza. Viewers of Youtube’s Lollapalooza 2019 broadcast will be able to not only catch sets from their favorite artists, but will also have the opportunity to access “custom content that gives them unique access to the festival’s artists.” Lollapalooza’s 2019 iteration will unfold from Aug. 1-4.

Diplo and Flume share ambient ‘Secular Sabbath’ performances during Coachella

Over the last three weekends, Diplo has certainly squeeze Southern California for all the juice it’s worth. Between two weekends of Coachella, followed by a performance at Stagecoach, Diplo gave Indio a run for it’s money. However, he still managed to find time for some much needed rest and relaxation at a much less-publicized event—Secular Sabbath, just a few miles down the road in Desert Hot Springs, right outside of Palm Springs.

Joined by Flume, the pair shared ambient tunes to soundtrack a night of introspection and meditation, close enough to Coachella to feel the event’s energy, but far enough away to feel the distance at the historic Two Bunch Palms resort. Secular Sabbath is a running event series, started in 2016, put on by California-native Genevieve Medow-Jenkins. Secular Sabbath events promote self-care and intentional, spiritual relaxation.

“It was a blast. I got to sit in a hot tub, I took a nap – there was great stuff going on all at the same time. And I got to play some cool music and I loved it. It’s good to try new things,” Diplo told Rolling Stone of his Secular Sabbath experience.


For a man who has dropped an album, a house music EP, and launched a country music project in less than a month’s time, managing a work-life balance has got to be a tall task, though the Mad Decent head honcho tends to make it look effortless. “Secular Sabbath was special, and I got to chill out, which is kind of rare. It’s kind of like the anti-festival,” says Diplo. With an itinerary like Diplo’s, a swing by Secular Sabbath sounds like a crucial stop amid three weekends of chaos in Southern California.

Watch Cirez D’s two-hour Coachella set, live from the festival’s Yuma stage

Eric Prydz took his Cirez D alias to Coachella this year for both weekends, serenading techno fanatics and listeners alike at the YUMA stage. The Swedish producer who rose to fame in 2004 with his hit single, “Call on Me,” has distanced himself from the mainstream, forging his own path through the wired forest of stage production with holograms and his new forward thinking live concept, VOID.

Prydz’ Cirez D alias takes Prydz’ talents underground, to cater to his–and fans’–techno cravings. He also plays almost exclusively his own music, which is an accomplishment in itself, given the two-hour length of his recent public performance at Coachella’s second weekend. The only song not by Cirez D is Thomas Schumacher‘s “Golden Hour.”

Some people brought home overpriced Yeezy merch to commemorate Coachella 2019 and others brought home herpes. According to data released by HerpAlert, a website that allows users to upload images of affected areas of the body for clinical evaluation and then be prescribed treatment for the sexually transmitted disease, cases of herpes seemingly skyrocketed near Coachella during this year’s two weekend run.

The site, which diagnoses on average about 12 cases of the incurable disease on a daily basis, claims to have tallied up more than 250 cases per day around Indio, California between April 12 and 21.

In Coachella’s immediate vicinity—Indio, Palm Desert and Coachella Valley —as well as Los Angeles and San Diego, HerpAlert claims to have come by a reported 1,105 cases of herpes, topping the previous record, obtained during Oscars weekend with a total of 60 cases. Clearly what happens at Coachella does not stay at Coachella.

At Coachella, Tame Impala and his band were playing through, “Why Don’t You Make Up Your Mind?” when a surprise guest interrupted. Out emerged A$AP Rocky wanting to play his version “Sundress,” which fittingly samples the aforementioned Tame Impala track. After a memorable duet, Rocky opted to try something a little more psychedelic, so he turned towards his glistening “L$D” track from theAT.LONG.LAST.A$AP album. It was a special two-song performance from the rapper who embedded himself effortlessly into the pop/psych-rock band.

The lysergic Australian music project led by multi-instrumentalist Kevin Parker recently released “Patience” and “Borderline,” after a lengthy hiatus. The former of these, aptly titled as could be, was Parker’s first release since 2015, and succeeds in laying the tone for what’s to come next from the forthcoming Tame Impala LP.

Stuffing one’s face on the designated ‘Stoner Holiday’ of April 20 is a privilege certainly not afforded to everyone. Kid Cudi did his part in spreading the love as widely as he could, however, joining with Postmates on the evening of April 19 to order $10k worth of chicken, biscuits, and mashed potatoes from Popeyes to the Coachella Valley Rescue Mission. The Coachella Valley Rescue Mission is one of the biggest homeless help centers in the region, supplying meals and supplies to hundreds throughout the year. TMZ first reported the news, though at the time Cudi’s donation had been kept on the low.

Cudi also paired with Postmates on 4/20 itself to set up a custom “Munchies Menu” for residents in Los Angeles, New York, San Francisco, Miami, and Chicago. The menu included Cudi’s favorite food spots from each of the above cities, each of which were renamed based off inside jokes and prized memories.
