Dog Blood will return to the stage next year with the delivery of New Orleans mainstay music and art festival Buku‘s 2019 lineup.

The festival dropped off one of the most diverse lineups of 2019 so far, topped by Lana Del Ray who is amid the release of her highly anticipated Norman Fucking Rockwell LP, A$AP Rocky, GRiZ, and Excision — along with an ultra rare appearance from Skrillex and Boys Noize‘s acid-laden side project, signaling the pair are likely ready to deliver long awaited new music next year. Louis The Child, RL Grime, and Kevin Gates round out the headlining block, with Claude VonStroke, Playboi Carti, Ekali, The Black Madonna, and a b2b performance from SLANDER and NGHTMRE featured on the undercard.

The festival is famous for its impeccably curated blend of hip-hop, rock, and dance music, and in 2019 they couldn’t have hit the mark more perfectly, pairing the likes of J.I.D. Denzel Curry, and a DJ set with members of From First To Last with performances by 1788-L, Getter, TOKiMONSTA and more. Buku Music + Art Project takes place March 22 – 23, and tickets go on sale December 11.

Electric Forest is pulling out all the stops for their single 2019 edition. The festival recently scaled back their two weekend offering back to their original one weekend format, though organizers were quick to even it out with the delivery of 2019’s lineup. To say next year’s billing is stacked would be an understatement — ODESZA, Kygo, Bassnectar, and Zeds Dead are holding down headlining duties, with festival favorites The String Cheese Incident returning for a three-night run. The under card features a mile-long list of talent headed to Rothbury, Michigan including Claude VonStroke, Alison Wonderland, Bob Moses, Lettuce, Ekali, Whethan, Gramatik and many more across June 27 – 30.

SLANDER and NGHTMRE are billed for a GUD VIBRATIONS label showcase, with Snails, TOKiMONSTA, The Knocks, and Bloodpop all slated for Electric Forest 2019 as well. Live sets from Gorgon City, Pnuma, and Ookay are expected, along with jam band flavors and a healthy serving of hip-hop from T-Pain. See Electric Forest 2019’s full lineup below.

Official details of 50th anniversary Woodstock event leaked

Official details of 50th anniversary Woodstock event leakedTravel Woodstock 1969

Rumors began reverberating around the music community in late November of a new Woodstock gathering in 2019 following 1969 organizer Michael Lang’s statement that plans were in the works. The event comes in perfect time to celebrate the legendary festival’s 50th anniversary, and thus far is rumored to be hosting the likes of Katy Perry, Ariana Grande, Swedish House Mafia, and even Daft Punk on its lineup — according to a proposal unearthed by notorious Twitter account Festive Owl. The event was purportedly named Journey On.

Following intense speculation, a representative from INVNT — one of the partner promoters of the alleged event — reached back out to Festive Owl to fully confirm its existence and provide a few more bits of information to help quell the the feverish hype. For one, its name will not be Journey One, nor Woodstock. It will be something different altogether. Additionally, the event isn’t affiliated with Michael Lang or any of the original orchestrators of the original Woodstock brand. Live Nation, INVNT, and the Bethel Woods Center for the Arts are the partners in the venture, which will be held August 16-18.

Stay tuned for more announcements.

 

Woodstock Music and Art Fair to celebrate 50th anniversary with 2019 festival

Woodstock Music and Art Fair to celebrate 50th anniversary with 2019 festivalWoodstock50

It’s been nearly 50 years since hundreds of thousands of people flocked to Bethel, New York for the seminal Woodstock Music and Art Fair. A lineup of music icons like Jimi Hendrix, The Who, Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, Janis Joplin, and countless others drew more than 400,000 people to a 600-acre dairy farm in the Catskill Mountains for four days of festivities in August 1969.

2019 will mark 50 years since this pivotal moment in music history, and the event’s original founders and promoters are rumored to have something incredible in the works to mark the occasion: an anniversary festival. Michael Lang, one of the co-creators of Woodstock, recently told the Poughkeepsie Journal that “we have definite plans.” He didn’t expand to include who would be performing or where the event would be taking place, noting that “this is not a done deal yet. But it’s very close.”

He also added that the anniversary festival will be focused on sustainability, activism, and social justice — themes that “hopefully encourage people to get involved with our lives on the planet.”

An official announcement will be coming soon, Lang said.

ODESZA announce inaugural Foreign Family Collective festival Sundara, topped by RÜFÜS DU SOL, RL Grime, and moreOdesza Lost Lake Jeff Kravitz

ODESZA announced earlier this year that they would not return to Red Rocks Amphitheater in 2019, thereby ending a consecutive four-year run of shows at the venue. The news led fans to speculate that the electronic duo could be plotting a momentous event in place of the annual Colorado show, more specifically, a Foreign Family Collective festival. Now, the duo have officially ended the speculation with the announcement of Sundara, set for March 13 – 16, 2019 in Riviera Maya, Mexico.

The label heads, and now festival organizers, are slated to headline the event, along with Alison Wonderland, RL Grime, and RÜFÜS DU SOL. Supporting talent for the inaugural beach festival includes Bob Moses, Tokimonsta, and Golden Features. Each act featured on Sundara’s debut lineup will play two different, unique sets across the three day event.

ODESZA’s Foreign Family Collective label claimed an Electric Forest first in 2017 as the imprint hosted its own stage at the Michigan festival, programmed with talent curated from their imprint including Jai Wolf, Chet Porter, and Kasbo. ODESZA enthusiasts reasoned that the launch of a festival-style event would be a logical next step in Foreign Family’s progression, and as ODESZA has confirmed, a Foreign Family festival is now well within fans’ collective ‘line of sight.’

[Watch] Skrillex drops unidentified new music at Listen In Adelaide festival0

Skrillex fans are in for a treat. While his most recent performances have revealed the OWSLA founder premiering a metric ton of unreleased content, a recent Reddit user heightened anticipation by uploading a video of Skrilex’s standout set at the most recent edition of Listen In Adelaide festival this past week.

The two-minute clip begins with Skrillex’s signature ID tag, with a never-before-heard track to follow. The new demo features larger-than-life elements, accompanied by lyrics in Spanish translating to “You know the devil.” Reddit user /u/Tuckersaurus reveals the LA native announced the song before performing it and says he “whipped out my phone as fast as possible so I could get it all.”

Just last week, Stubhub leaked Skrillex’s upcoming festival slot at Lollapalooza Argentina, set for March 29–31 of next year. In addition, a recent Instagram story revealed his current work in progress towards remixing Travis Scott‘s “Sicko Mode.”

Lil Wayne announced to replace Childish Gambino at Austin City Limits festival

Lil Wayne announced to replace Childish Gambino at Austin City Limits festivalLil Wayne Carter V

After adding Phoenix to join its lineup just yesterday, the Austin City Limits festival announced today that indeed Lil Wayne will join Justice, Metallica, Travis Scott and Arctic Monkeys to headline the festival this weekend.

Wayne’s arrival comes immediately after the announcement that, due to a newly obtained foot injury, Childish Gambino needed to postpone the remaining dates on his This Is America tour until later in the year — effectively cancelling his top billing at the Texas festival. It is a timely arrival for Lil Wayne, as the rapper celebrates his 36th birthday with the release of his long-awaited Tha Carter V album drop on the same day.

Did StubHub just leak Skrillex’s next major festival booking?

Did StubHub just leak Skrillex’s next major festival booking?Skrille Do Lab

Skrillex will headline Minneapolis’ Snowta Festival, hit Vancouver, as well as both editions of Decadence before 2018 is out. Momentum going into 2019 will be high, and according to StubHub, it appears the OWSLA spearhead will also be among those artists listed on Lollapalooza Argentina’s lineup, set for March 29 – 31, 2019. A Reddit user noted the international addition to Skrillex’s roster of upcoming appearances while browsing the producer’s current tour dates on StubHub. Although the festival date could be just an error, the show date conversely could be an accurate expansion of Skrillex’s tour schedule that mistakenly surfaced on StubHub prior to an official lineup announcement from Lollapalooza Argentina organizers.

The LA-based superstar’s Snowta and Decadence bookings, audio engineer Randy Urbanski’s not so subtle suggestion that new Skrillex music is underway in October, and recent speculation that Skrillex has been at work on a flip of Travis Scott‘s “Sicko Mode” collectively point to big moves in the works from Skrillex, rendering the possibility of a Lollapalooza Argentina headline billing all the more probable. For now, the Recess producer’s looming return continues to generate considerable anticipation, but as the year inches to a close, we’re betting things in Skrillex’s camp are just starting to heat up.
