As Porter Robinson‘s inaugural Second Sky Festival approaches, anticipation for the event’s special programming is reaching a fever pitch. Virtual Self is providing the opening performance, Madeon is expected to crowd test a slew of new material, and perhaps the most anticipated moment of all is Robinson’s Worlds revival set, the first of which he’s performed since 2017. Best of all, the festival has announced it will live stream via Twitch on June 15 so fans across the world can tune in to the day’s action.
Recently the “Ghost Voices” producer launched the Robinson Malawi Fund in honor of his younger brother and fans in attendance in Oakland as well as live stream viewers will be able to donate in real time.
Zeds Dead are veterans and trendsetters in the electronic space, creating their own lane of new sound both produced and supported by their own Deadbeats imprint. Innovation is currency for the two dubstep flag bearers, combining different amounts of rumbling, melodic low end with dynamic synths and powerful energy for an ever-evolving, idiosyncratic sound.
Dylan Mamid (DC) and Zachary Rapp-Rovan (Hooks) mentioned on Twitter about their upcoming EDC performance, “This’ll be the most unreleased music we’ve had in a set I think.” For these Toronto-based artists who defy categorization brought Bassmentality to one of Canada’s most storied club nights and the rest was history.

After a stellar 2018, REZZ is back on the festival grind with new music to share. The Canadian downtempo space bass boss recently released a new single, “Dark Age,” in preparation for her new EP Beyond The Senses set to drop July 24.
REZZ is known for her cult of loyal followers and hypnotic presence. The drumming low ends pair nicely with haunting melodies curating a contrast of anxiety and power complimented nicely by mesmerizing visuals. Her new project will reportedly “exudes more depth in my songs’ melody and structure.”
To see the REZZ in action at 12:30am Sunday morning (May 19), tune into the EDC livestream below.
NGHTMRE thrives on heavy, trap-inspired bass productions—it’s where he lives. He’s collaborated with a grip of top hip-hop talents, recently dropping a VIP edit of his A$AP Ferg collaboration, “REDLIGHT.” The Gud Vibrations helmer is also fresh off of a heavy bass posse cut with Shaquille O’Neal and Lil Jon on “BANG.”
Last year, NGHTMRE began a new label with Slander, Gud Vibrations. Since then, the label has grown a steady reputation for crafting high energy dance-floor heaters. NGHTMRE’s set, broadcasting live from the Cosmic Meadow at 1:30am PST (Sunday), will surly keep those good vibrations at high levels.
One such artist is Alison Wonderland, who now takes the stage at the Kinetic Field to deliver a dynamic dollop of bass and energy straight into the ears and faces of thousands who’ve gathered hopes of hearing hits like “Church” and “Lost My Mind” live.
Stream her performance live starting at 10:45 p.m. PST, below.
Coachella always brings out historic appearances. Akin to Aphex Twin‘s storied return to Indio after a decade, the festival was also able to get Dubfire and Sharam back together for their first time in five years following their 2006 split. Weekend one saw them spin a fluid set that balanced thumping deep cuts and euphoric, melodic tracks—including one of their biggest anthems, “Say Hello.” Now, they’ve reprised their spot at the iconic Yuma decks, where fans who might have missed out last week can re-watch the action. Expect a fresh new set from the two as the hour-long journey unfolds.
Coachella is ensuring those unable to attend this year’s installment of its painfully cool congregation of music and art can still soak up the excitement from home. The perennially pored-over affair has confirmed over 50 artists to be featured on the festival’s live stream schedule throughout its two-weekend duration (April 12 – 14/19 – 21), for the first time ever.
Since the festival’s inclusion of a second weekend in 2012, one-weekend streaming (typically the first) has been the standard. But this year, viewers can trace both first and second legs, with the latter, dubbed Coachella Curated, equipped with supplemental content in the form of “full Yuma Tent sets, performances and more.”
All times are listed as PST, and the number next to the performer denotes the streaming channel they’ll be featured on. See the full Coachella livestream schedule below.

Coachella 2019 is just around the corner, and for those who couldn’t make the trek out to Indio, technology is here to save the day.
Fans can watch their preferred performances on Coachella’s YouTube channel, which indicates that 46 artists have been confirmed for live-stream coverage (and counting). These artists include Dillon Francis, Gorgon City, J Balvin, Wiz Khalifa, and more. While this is its ninth year in a row offering a live stream, it’s the first year that the festival will broadcast both weekends.

Ultra Music Festival is set to usher in the 2019 festival season with its 21st installment, which will be hosted at Virginia Key for the first time in UMF history.

Ultra Music Festival’s live stream will extend until 2 a.m. EST each day. Festival organizers will announce UMF TV’s live schedule in the hours that precede the live stream’s official debut. Given that it’s tradition for DJs to share unreleased IDs at Ultra each year, dance music enthusiasts won’t want to miss a minute of the action.
The Mac Miller: Celebration of Life benefit concert hit ears and feels on October 31, as the rapper’s loved ones and fans converged on the Los Angeles’ Greek Theatre for a live-streamed tribute performance. The event benefited the recently created Mac Miller Circles fund, supporting art programs for underserved youth.
The performing lineup included Miller collaborators and friends SZA, Vince Staples, Thundercat, Anderson .Paak, Travis Scott, and many more – with highlights including a high-energy set from Chance The Rapper and a bluesy cover from John Mayer of Miller’s “Small Worlds.” Between artist sets, personal footage of the artist played on screens. The night ended hair-raisingly with an audio clip of the rapper wishing the audience goodnight, as a single spotlight shone down on a mic.
