Coachella‘s official lineup typically lands in January every year in conjunction with ticket sales, though this year, fans have been too eager to get their hands on the 2020 talent roster. Earlier this month the festival’s headliners reportedly leakedTravis Scott, Rage Against The Machine, and Frank Ocean are expected to top the bill. Now, new reports by Consequence of Sound suggest Radiohead frontman Thom Yorke, the newly reunited My Chemical Romance, Lana Del Rey, and Flume are expected to join those ranks.

After a monumental 2019, which brought the debut of a new live show at Lollpalooza, Flume isn’t exactly a surprise on Coachella’s 2020 lineup. Lana Del Rey and Thom Yorke both released solo projects this year, and My Chemical Romance’s Coachella debut gives the festival another opportunity to put on a beloved reunion act as they’ve done in years past, a la OutKast, AC/DC, LCD Soundsystem and more. Coachella returns to Indio’s Empire Polo Club on April 10 -12 for weekend one and April 17 – 19, 2020 for weekend two.

In light of CRSSD dropping the first wave of artists who will be playing during the festival’s 11th edition in March, it’s time to take a trip back to Kaskade‘s full Redux set from the festival’s 10th edition. Kaskade’s set is perfect for those looking to get a sultry start to their day. The set features Kaskade originals in their entirety with the exception of a brief hiatus, where the producer drops “Everything in Its Right Place” by Radiohead (Gigamesh/ DiscoTech Remix / Glass Petals Big Intro Edit).

CRSSD takes place twice a year at San Diego’s Waterfront Park, and the festival will be returning on March 6-7. GesaffelsteinRÜFÜS DU SOLCarl CoxCharlotte de WitteChris LakeCamelPhat, and Nora en Pure are all featured on the lineup, along with a stellar cast of supporting acts.

Whether or not Kaskade will return is currently unknown, but after listening to his one-hour set from the festival’s previous edition, fans can only hope he will be back to grace listeners with one hour of deep house.

The 200 Best Songs Of The 2010s

This post was originally published on this site

When this decade began, MP3s still reigned supreme. Now, at the end of it, a song is no longer even a file — it’s ephemera, on every streaming service and available to hear in myriad ways. For better and worse, the song (and the single) have become the norm for the general public’s music consumption. More »

The 100 Best Albums Of The 2010s

The 100 Best Albums Of The 2010sA decade is an arbitrary measurement. They seem confined, these neat little symmetrical 10-year runs, but it’s only in hindsight that we define them, that their signifiers and trends and shorthand become codified. In reality, there are bleeds, the timbre and events of one chunk of time sliding over the border into another. If you’re … More »

The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame nominees for the 2020 class are in, and unlike previous nomination classes, a majority of this year’s nominees are on the ballot for the first time ever. In order to be eligible, each nominee’s first single or album had to be released in 1994 or earlier. Highlights of the nominees include Soundgarden, The Notorious B.I.G., Whitney Houston, Depeche Mode, Kraftwerk, and Dave Matthews Band, among others. First-time nominees include Dave Matthews Band, the Doobie Brothers, Motörhead, The Notorious B.I.G., Pat Benatar, Soundgarden, T. Rex, Thin Lizzy, and Whitney Houston. A full nominee list can be found here.

Some may be surprised by this year’s nominees, who are overwhelmingly not classical rock acts. Incoming Rock Hall chairman John Sykes spoke to Rolling Stone about the evolution of the Hall of Fame, stating, “Nothing stays the same in music…Therefore, really, the institution that honors it has to evolve with all the music. Just like hip-hop is very much a part of the Hall of Fame now, everything we do — the board members we have, the events we build on — has to reflect a changing culture without ever disregarding or turning our backs on the ideals and fundamentals of the Rock Hall.”

Iconic English band Radiohead were inducted during the 2019 ceremony, where The Talking Heads’ David Byrne gave the induction speech with Ed O’Brien and Philip Selway of Radiohead in attendance.

Voting will be done by a pool of more than 1,000 artists, journalists, and music historians among others, who cast their votes to decide on the new class. Fans will be able to influence the vote by voting at rockhall.com or at the museum in Cleveland. The top-scoring acts will be announced in January and inducted May 2, 2020 at a ceremony at Cleveland’s Public Hall.
