Just a few days ago, Ultra dropped phase 2 of their massive 2019 lineup. The lineup includes pretty much everyone you could possibly think of and is so long it could be a book. From Peekaboo, NERO and Space Jesus to Whipped Cream, 3lau, and K?D, this lineup covers the whole spectrum. Ultra is always
For the last few weeks, Ultra Music Festival has been sharing some huge news for its 21st Miami edition. Today, the popular festival has shared some even more exciting news. The phase 2 lineup has officially been released, and it sure is a great one. The new extension of the lineup includes some fascinating names,
FORM Arcosanti is back in 2019 for a sixth year in Arizona’s high desert, and this year’s music and cultural programming may result in the event’s strongest outing yet. Leading the lineup this year was Florence + The Machine, kicking off their North American summer tour from the experimental micro-city. The rest of the lineup, now delivered in full, includes intimate performances by Anderson .Paak and the Free Nationals, Pussy Riot, Baltimore rapper JPEGMAFIA, Bonobo performing a DJ set, Snail Mail, DJ Koze, and TOKiMONSTA.
Skrillex will make his annual appearance at the three-day creative gathering—a favored testing ground for new material, where he live debuted tracks like his “Humble” remix and “Agen Wida” in years past. While Hundred Waters‘ Trayer will perform a solo set, the band is noticeably absent from this year’s lineup, as they’ve performed at each of FORM’s last five editions.
Beyond the music curated for this year’s event, FORM’s cultural programming has been announced. This year’s billing includes a variety of panels, poetry, workshops and discussions covering topics like architecture, design, and social justice with Patrisse Cullors, co-founder of Black Lives Matter, and much more. FORM 2019 will also feature Between Two Books—a conversation between Florence Welch and authors Nadya Tolokonnikova of Pussy Riot, Ysra Daley-Ward and more, as well as demos of Tónandi, Sigur Rós’s mixed-reality collaboration with tech startup Magic Leap.
FORM is slated for May 10 – 12 in Meyer, Arizona. See the full lineup below.
FORM Arcosanti is prepping a return to Arizona’s high desert in May, and, coinciding with Florence + The Machine‘s announcement of their upcoming North American summer tour, the band has been revealed to be the festival’s first headliner for the 2019 iteration. FORM, now in its sixth year, occupies Arizona’s unique micro-city, Arcosanti, and just like the host venue, the event has built a rich artistic history of being anything but ordinary in a short amount of time.
Florence + The Machine top this year’s lineup which is expected to land in full in the first week of February. Past headliners have included Flying Lotus, Solange, and James Blake, along with annual performances by Skrillex and the festival’s curators and organizers, OWSLA-signed Hundred Waters. Florence, embarking on a 17-stop run alongside FORM alumni Blood Orange and Perfume Genius, is a a telling, and exciting lead announcement from FORM, signaling another impeccably programmed event slated for May 10 – 12 at Arcosanti.
Creamfields is a true UK institution, consistently booking talent to match its stalwart status. The festival continues this trend for its 2019 edition, with one of its first lineup revelations being Swedish House Mafia. Adding onto the hype was that Creamfields would be the only UK stop on the iconic trio’s reunion tour.
Now, they’ve revealed more headliners from their 300-piece roster, and it’s certainly not lacking in diversity. On the house and techno end, Carl Cox, Helena Hauff, Hot Since 82, Nicole Moudaber are some of powerplayers topping the bill. Paul van Dyk and Above & Beyond represent the trance side of things, while big room titans Tiësto, Timmy Trumpet, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike making their way into the mix as well. The festival will take place on August 22-25, and tickets are available here.

Over the past few years, the Indy 500 has invited big headlining acts to perform at the race’s Turn 3 infield called the Snake Pit. This year Skrillex will be welcome back to Indianapolis Motor Speedway after his 2016 Snake Pit performance. Alesso, Illenium and Chris Lake are also scheduled to perform in front of

Since Swedish House Mafia‘s long-awaited comeback officially materialized, attention has turned largely to a cryptic roll out of tour dates on their website, with a number of major cities already in the trio’s cross hairs for 2019. Though, back in August of 2018, with the group’s triumphant reunion at Ultra still fresh in everyone’s minds, Steve Angello stated publicly that Swedish House Mafia would play Tomorrowland 2019 “by any means necessary” to Dutch newspaper De Telegraaf. Since the Size Records boss’ declaration, there hasn’t been much evidence to confirm the Mafia will appear in Belgium this year until now.
Fans have begun noticing that this year Martin Garrix‘s annual headlining role at the festival has been slightly reduced. Garrix is heading up his label’s STMPD RCRDS stage, only playing a single set during weekend one. After closing out Tomorrowland three years running, fans are beginning to speculate that closing duties will be passed from Garrix to Swedish House Mafia this year.

The “Access” producer’s limited availability at Tomorrowland this year could simply be the result of scheduling conflicts, and Swedish House Mafia may still get a traditional announcement from the festival. However, something about Swedish House Mafia’s noticeable absence so far from Tomorrowland’s currently ongoing lineup roll out suggests there’s more to this than meets the eye.
As of Monday and through the rest of the week, organizers for Boom, Belgium’s Tomorrowland will continue to unravel their esteemed-as-ever list of 2019 artistry. Scene frontrunners setting the weeklong reveal in motion are Carl Cox, Armin van Buuren, Above & Beyond, Helena Hauff, Fisher, The Chainsmokers, and more. Seasoned patrons should expect an abundance of followups of equal caliber throughout the week.
The announcement supersedes last week’s Tomorrowland 2019 stage rollout. The multifarious stage hosts for the newest installment of what is arguably the world’s most celebrated electronic music event will include the likes of Anjunabeats, Dirtybird, Charlotte de Witte’s KNTXT, and Adam Beyer’s Drumcode—just to name a few.
The two-weekend Tomorrowland 2019 will run July 19-21 and pick back up July 26-28.
