Diplo is a country artist now. A one-time fluke booking at Stagecoach Music Festival to get the after hours crowd going could have been chalked up as a fun publicity stunt. Though almost a year later, Diplo, or rather Thomas Wesley, has a growing catalog of country-leaning material and now he’s even locked in for a second outing at the most famous country festival at the US.

The three-day Goldenvoice affair, held at the Empire Polo Fields where Coachella takes place, turned in a thick 2020 lineup of country music power players topped by Carrie Underwood, Eric Church, and Thomas Rhett. Diplo is featured prominently in the undercard next to his holiness Guy Fieri, Mayor of Flavortown. Additionally, Lil Nas X and Billy Ray Cyrus are locked in for Stagecoach 2020, so expect the three to reunite for another live performance a year after “Old Town Road” changed the game. See the full Stagecoach lineup below.

Good Morning Mix: deadmau5 leaves 2019  Creamfields attendees awestruck with cube v3 display [Watch]Deadmau5 2019 1

With the opening chords of deadmau5‘s 2019 single, “nosedive,” the producer’s catalog-canvassing set from Creamfields 2019 commences. Patrons of the globally attended UK event and those not present for deadmau5’s striking showing alike can now experience the Friday, August 23 performance in its full-length glory, as the set has become available in its entirety. The effort foregrounds deadmau5’s electronic marvel, the cube v3, from atop which he delivers his set.

deadmau5 shuffles through cornerstone productions from his earlier days in the industry such as 2016’s “Imaginary Friends” and 2009’s “Ghosts ‘N’ Stuff,” before inviting Lights onstage for a live rendition of “Raise Your Weapon.” Lights and deadmau5 then jointly transition into their lengthily anticipated collaborative effort of 2018, “Drama Free.” An incontrovertible classic, deadmau5’s “Strobe” provides a formidable finale to the stunning sonic affair.

DGTL to continue expansion, with first Asian edition heading to India in 2020Bengaluru Dhtl

DGTL, one of the world’s premier music and arts festivals will be taking its trendsetting lineup and eco-friendly concepts to Asia in January 2020. The festival, which has already proven an international sensation with success in locations like Tel Aviv, São Paulo, Barcelona, and Amsterdam, will be touching down at the LaLit Ashok in Bengaluru, India January 11-12 of next year.

In terms of talent, DGTL pushes the envelope time after time, not only giving fans a healthy variety of top-tier house and techno, but also honing their focus in on local, homegrown talent and live electronic sets. While no acts for the Bengaluru event have yet been announced, a glance at other editions’ talent will show just how deep DGTL rolls. The lineup for the upcoming three-day festival in Barcelona Aug 23-25, for example, highlights Chris Liebing, Jeff Mills, Tale of Us and Todd Terje, to name a few.

While acclaimed acts in dreamy locations mostly sells itself, DGTL’s ambition and vision doesn’t stop there. This year, the festival was adorned with the International Greener Festival Award for its extensive list of sustainable initiatives woven into the event, innovating and experimenting with methods to lessen the global footprint left by festivals and their attendees. DGTL Bengaluru, however, will be kicking off 2020, the year that the festival aims to be the first fully circular and climate-neutral festival in the world. An improbably tall order, though if any festival has the necessary tools to accomplish such a feat, it’s DGTL.

Tickets are not yet available, but you can sign up for more info and updates about DGTL Bengaluru here.

EDC Orlando unveils 2019 lineup, expands to three daysEdc Orlando 1

2019 promises to be a banner year of production for Electric Daisy Carnival‘s (EDC) East Coast arm in Orlando, as the staple of the Sunshine State festival circuit unveils its largest lineup yet.

The event will bring a broader selection of electronic talent to Tinker Field from November 8-10 as it expands from a two- to a three-day dance affair to accommodate its voracious following. Jam-packed with the genre’s most acclaimed artists, EDC Orlando’s 2019 lineup features 3LAU, ZHU, Kaskade, Habstrakt, Diplo, DJ Snake, CamelPhat, Gorgon City, just to name a few from the star-spangled roster. More than 20 artists will make their timely Orlando debut, including ANNA, FISHER, Nora En Pure, i_o, and San Holo, among others.

An array of stage takeovers further diversifies EDC Orlando’s agenda. Adam Beyer and Green Velvet will curate branded talent for their Drumcode and La La Land demonstrations, respectively. Dreamstate will meanwhile cater to the trance enthusiasts in attendance, while Bassrush, LA’s Factory93, and Insomniac Music Group will assemble their own aural armies across their takeovers. The mau5trap crew is more than likely to further the trademarked fun with a band of We Are Friends envoys.

Passes to EDC Orlando’s 2019 chapter are now available here.

Man dies after suffering ‘medical emergency’ at Lollapalooza

Man dies after suffering ‘medical emergency’ at LollapaloozaLollapalooza

A 24-year-old man attending Grant Park, Chicago’s Lollapalooza festival this past Saturday died after suffering a “medical emergency,” NBC Chicago reports.

The man, whom first responders found near the festival’s Perry’s Stage, was immediately rushed to a nearby hospital where he was soon pronounced dead, according to the Chicago Office of Emergency Management and Communications. Officials have not yet shared a cause of death.

“Our thoughts and prayers are with his friends and family during this difficult time,” the OEMC offered in a recent statement.

Last year, a 16-year-old boy from Mundelein, Illinois died upon attending the festival, with 160 others hospitalized. The number of reported hospitalizations thus far for 2019’s iteration is significantly lower than previous years, likely due in part to the extended weekend’s milder weather.
