Three-day Woodstock 50 festival confirmed, dates and location revealedWoodstock Hendri

After months of frantic speculation, confirmation of an official Woodstock anniversary event has been confirmed by the legendary music festival’s co-founder, Michael Lang. Lang confirmed the news to Rolling Stone, noting a new location for Woodstock 50, as well as the dates for this year’s event.

Many were hoping Woodstock 50 would return to the event’s original home in Bethel, New York, which eventually would go on to host Mysteryland‘s U.S. offshoot for a number of years. Instead, Woodstock 50 will be hosted in Watkins Glen, New York across August 16, 17, and 18. Lang also confirmed more than 40 acts have already been booked, noting a well-rounded lineup of rock, hip-hop, pop, legacy acts and reunions from the original festival in 1969 is already locked in for the 50th anniversary. Organizers have been tight-lipped about talent for this year’s event, though the lineup and tickets are expected to land sometime in February.

In regards to Woodstock’s infamously disastrous ’99 venture, Lang was quick to address concerns, explaining, “Woodstock ’99 was just a musical experience with no social significance. It was just a big party. With this one, we’re going back to our roots and our original intent. And this time around, we’ll have control of everything.”

Woodstock 50 is also expected to be livestreamed online this summer. Stay tuned for details.

Tulum has quickly become a top destination for rugged dance fans in the winter, converting each January to a mecca for the world’s finest house and techno DJs. Since BPM’s departure from Playa Del Carmen in 2017, this has become even more the case, with a plethora of carefully-produced events popping up all over the city’s jungle beds and cenotes.

Sonorous sits atop this influx of events as a Tulumian winter jewel. The juggernaut brand will begin its takeover on December 29 and continue until January 13, bringing a series of all-stars to the jungle. They’ve just unveiled their schedule so far, and it’s looking to be an extravagant two-week affair. Events primarily take place at night, with notable headliners like Solomun, Dubfire, Hernan Cattaneo, Hot Since 82, and more getting their chance to shine at night. There will also be three day parties on January 7, 9, & 10 respectively, with whomadewho, Apollonia headlining, plus a special showcase by Lee Foss’ Repopulate Mars imprint.

Creamfields seems to be gearing up for a strong 2019 edition. After securing Eric Prydz and Carl Cox for their event at London’s famed Steel Yard venue, the festival upped the ante in November by snagging a highly anticipated Swedish House Mafia headlining performance for 2019. Riding that momentum, the festival’s latest announcement reveals deadmau5 as the next confirmed headline act for next year’s festival.

deadmau5, who played the festival in 2017, will hold the Friday night closing slot on the Arc Stage come next August. With two progressive house stalwarts already announced on their lineup, Creamfields is sure to be 2019’s prime destination for top tier electronic music.

BREAKING: Friendship’s maiden voyage forced to turn back to port due to medical emergency aboard ship

BREAKING: Friendship’s maiden voyage forced to turn back to port due to medical emergency aboard shipGary Richards

Destructo‘s new floating festival concept, Friendship, has already experienced some choppy waters as the event’s maiden voyage gets underway. Less than 24 hours into the ship’s first sailing, The Celebrity Equinox was forced to return to Miami due to a medical emergency aboard the boat. The boat, headed for private island Coco Cay, made an unannounced turnaround, which is seemingly due to it making more logistic sense to return to port than to have the coast guard fly out into open water.

The nature of the medical emergency on board is still unclear, though unsubstantiated reports claim a broken elbow and a heart attack could be the reasons behind the ships return. As of publishing, Friendship representatives have not returned a request for comment, though Port Miami has confirmed that the ship had docked and has once again set sail for Coco Cay. Boys Noize, Dixon, RÜFÜS DU SOL, and more are slated to perform on Friendship’s debut sailing. Stay tuned for updates.

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 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.
