GRiZ is heading back on the road to shout “funk bad vibes” loud and proud across the country. The man behind the artist, Grant Kwiecinski, who just wrote a daring HuffPo OP-ED, has been busy headlining major festivals all over the country amongst rumors that he is working on a new album.
Today, June 26, Grant Kwiecinski has begun rolling out the first phase of his 2017 tour, deemed “Good Will Continue.” The new fall tour comes as a follow-up to his last, “Good Will Prevail,” which, in a lot of ways, was a response to the overwhelming political negativity that was pervading the country during last year’s unlikely presidential campaign.
The man Grant is thus far scheduled to hit major cities along the West Coast primarily, most notably a two-night stop in San Francisco and, not to mention, Suwannee’s Hulaween in Florida. The grueling one-month long tour schedule does not skip a beat or miss a day from 10/11- 11/11 — reflective of the kind of artistic intensity for which Grant seems to live.
Gearing up for her forthcoming sophomore album, Alison Wonderland announces the third iteration of her warehouse party series – but this time with a spooky twist.
The four-date ‘Wonderland Scarehouse Project’ tour will take place in remote farmhouse locations across Australia and New Zealand, touching down in Brisbane, Melbourne, Sydney and Auckland across late November and into mid-December. The project’s official website explains that these very special shows will be “completely off the grid, only accessible by a dedicated compulsory phantom bus service.” Wonderland continues,
“The ‘WonderlandWarehouseProject’ was one of my most favourite things to play and curate, it was basically a look into my mind. This will be the next step. As someone who is a music lover for me shows are a way to escape the real world and I want everyone who comes to leave with the same experience.”
While the full lineup has yet to be revealed, Wonderland promises big names and “no neighbours, no lockouts, no escape” from the eerie new project. Head to the event’s official website to grab tickets when they are released, June 28 at 10am.
Following up on the release of his lead single Feel It in early April, Jackal returns with a summer smash hit entitled Summer In Your Arms, the second single from his forthcoming Endorphins EP. Born as Mikey Pennington, is no stranger to the spotlight. From chart-topping releases to touring and performing at numerous nightclubs in the
The Chainsmokers are a force to reckon with. After taking home a number of awards at the Billboard Music Awards and reaching one billion streams for their song “Closer,” The Chainsmokers show no signs of slowing down. As The Chainsmokers are currently touring through 40 cities in the United States for their ‘Memories…Do Not Open’
All puns aside, the last thing we expected was Tchami to drop a new track right as his Prophecy Tour kicked off this week. Set to hit numerous cities in North America, the Prophecy Tour will keep Tchami busy over the next several weeks, but the Parisian producer nears the end of the first week of the tour by dropping an entirely new track. The best part? It takes his music in a familiar yet exciting new direction.
“Adieu” finds Tchami exploring a more uplifting side of his sound, one with almost tropical-sounding percussion, soft synths and a powerful sample. A fuzzy warble punctuates the track, hinting at Tchami’s darker side before he rings it in in favor of a more house-inspired mood. Originally known for his future house songs with glitchy vocal samples and dark synths, “Adieu” contrasts to Tchami’s signature sound without sounding alien, a rare feat for a producer known so well for a darker persona. We’re intrigued to see if he explores more of this lighter, house-inclined sound in the future, but for now we are happy to see Tchami step into the light.
This past weekend Jauz returned to his old stomping grounds of San Fransisco, CA for the second date in his highly-anticipated Off the Deep End tour, his first headlining tour since he broke out into the electronic dance music spotlight in 2014. This past weekend’s sold-out event was hosted at the legendary Bill Graham Civic Auditorium and was arguably the 23 year old producer’s biggest show to date. But before Jauz could reveal himself from behind a giant curtain, the night was kicked off with riveting sets by Goshfather, Ghastly, and Slushii and was topped off with live performances from popular Bay-area rappers, Too $hort and E40.
The Bay Area native spun an assortment of genres, seemingly catering to the different tastes and preferences of his hometown crowd. From gritty Dubstep, to old school hip-hop, to signature bass house and never-before-heard mash-ups, the massive crowd shook the venue’s walls in their excitement. Fan-favorite mashups included Blink 182’s ‘Down’ into Swedish House Mafia’s ‘Save the World,’ and Linkin Park’s ‘Numb’ into Jauz’s signature bass-house selections.
He even revealed some new unreleased tracks to the crowd including this ID — a high-energy bass house banger with a marimba lead and some ethnic tribal flare.
The tour will be making eleven more stops all across the country from now until March, including major cities like Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Denver, NYC, and Atlanta .
The Chainsmokers just announced a massive 40-date arena tour across the US, but a lot of people are going to find it hard to afford tickets. It varies by venue, but GA tickets range from $40-$90 (with floor tickets in Toronto specifically exceeding $100) depending on section and area of the arena you want, with the most expensive tickets going for floor spots.
However, the VIP accommodations are where your wallets are going to start hurting. With packages ranging from $200 to $900+, and perks varying from access to soundcheck at even the lowest level, and at the highest level offering way, way more, some fans will no doubt go for the gold.
The Chainsmokers have assured fans that the shows will be “unlike anything” they’ve done before, especially considering they announced new stage production, as well. The tweet also mentions live music, so we might really be seeing a new era in Chainsmokers performances in 2017.
Anyone who has been to a show of ours before this is gonna be unlike anything you’ve seen from us! Live music x dj set production is WAY UP
Pop EDM duo The Chainsmokers have been on quite a roll lately. They have successfully managed to become one of the most dominant and well-liked commercial house duos around, with their last three singles, “All We Know,” “Setting Fires,” and “Paris” racking up more than 100 million hits on YouTube alone. And their impossible to escape hit “Closer” hitting quadruple platinum (with a fifth platinum nod on the way).
With their latest tweet, it seems that Alex and Drew are ready to embark on the next chapter of their rise to EDM superstardom — the full length album, In a recent tweet, they have finally confirmed their debut album as well as a new tour for 2017.
Since From First To Last unveiled their new single “Make War,” with Sonny Moore back on vocals, the internet has been buzzing with hopes and theories about what the future may hold.
Numerous details have people thinking that Sonny Moore is permanently reuniting with From First To Last, which is awesome, but the implications of such a reunion are starting to become apparent. After rumors of disagreement with Skrillex, Diplo has said he’s taking a break from Jack Ü to focus on Major Lazer, and now, Skrillex’s own list of tour dates and shows are noticeably non-existent. Some have even begun to speculate that Sonny is shelving the Skrillex project to devote his efforts entirely to From First To Last.
In just seven years, Skrillex has arguably become one of the figureheads of electronic dance music, and understandably, electronic dance fans freaking out that Sonny might be taking a break from the project. Reddit has already been discussing the theory at length, which you can read through here.
Eric Prydz is grossly talented, and his ambitious productions, both music and visual, all too often inspire late night grips of FOMO and shivering anxiety.
EPIC 4.0 was an absolutely incredible tour, what with some of the most innovative stage design in history, and it’s already set the bar way up in the stratosphere. Now, as promised, EPIC 5.0 is about to blow that old shit out of the water. Prydz just uploaded a photo of the stage design and visuals in development, and it looks nothing less than breathtaking.
It won’t be too long before we get a video teaser of the new works in action, but if he can pull off this insane of a show with EPIC 4.0, just imagine what’s in store with this upcoming tour.
