Coachella 2019 rumors ensue, with suspected headliners: Childish Gambino, Justin Timberlake, and Kanye WestCoachella 1

Unsurprisingly, over six months in advance, the eternally trendy Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival is already garnering a swarm of rumors regarding its 2019 headliners.

The scoop comes from HITS Daily Double, as the outlet recently reported via anonymous, “informed sources” that the imminent installment (set to run April 12-21) will house headlining performances from Childish Gambino (Friday), Justin Timberlake (Saturday), and Kanye West (Sunday). The artists themselves have yet to comment on these claims.

Coachella 2018 proved particularly eventful, with notable performances from both Beyonce, who brought with her over 100 dancers onstage during her headlining set—in addition to a cameo from husband Jay-Z—and Whethan, the 19-year-old Boy Wonder of EDM, who personally flew out the yodeling boy internet sensation for a special guest performance, which quickly went viral on a sundry of social media channels.

Kanye West & Lil Pump's "I Love It" VideoPoor Icona Pop. The shouty Swedish singing duo don’t have much to hang their hat on, historically speaking. In the moment, I thought their 2013 debut album was pretty good, but time has mostly forgotten them. The one thing they could definitely claim is SEO dominance for the phrase “I Love It” thanks to the … More »

Good Morning Mix: Celebrate the life of DJ AM by revisiting his throwback heavy Power 106 FM mixDJ AM Iron Man Cameo Live

This edition of Dancing Astronaut’s daily Good Morning Mix memorializes the life of Adam Michael Goldstein, better known as the iconic DJ AM. It has been nine years since Goldstein’s untimely passing, though his ubiquity and influence are still felt across electronic music today.

There is no better way for fans to celebrate Goldstein’s legacy than by reliving on of his many notable mixes, and perhaps one of his most memorable — the unforgettable Power 106 FM mix. Clocking in at just over an hour in length, the mix works through throwback tracks from JAY-Z and Beyoncé, Notorious BIG, Usher, Janet Jackson, Aerosmith, and more. A hip-hop-inflected masterclass in cool from the inimitable DJ AM warms the heart as we near a decade since his death. Scratching and skipping his way through a trove of complementary throwbacks, AM still reminds of his place among the greats in the highest echelons of dance history.
