Albums, Events | Spring Awakening Music Festival 5-year Anniversary | June 10-12

Posted by on June 6, 2016

Come Friday, June 10th, Spring Awakening Music Festival (SAMF) will be celebrating its five-year anniversary by throwing a 3-day party with a hefty lineup of artists. In addition to an impressive bill of performers, SAMF has recently revealed the layout of the new festival grounds, which look equally impressive. The festival contains 2 gorgeous stages, 2 tent structures and a silent disco. In years prior the festival took place at Soldier Field, home of the Chicago Bears… however, for the first time, SAMF will take place at Addams/Medill Park, which is a short 3 miles west of the old venue. The new location and festival grounds allow for more accommodations and a more maneuverable landscape for attendees… an idea that excites us all.

Events | Check Out the Stunning Line Up for III Points Festival in MIA

Posted by on June 2, 2016

III Points

III Points Music, Art, & Technology Festival is a newer festival to the market but that doesn’t mean the line up is any less impressive then the other bigger festivals that are coming up! In it’s 4th year running the festival will return to Miami, more specifically the Wynwood area where it started. The versatility in the headliners is what was so appealing to me, with highlights such as Thievery Corporation, M83, Dixon, Flying Lotus, Method Man & Redman, Maya Jane Coles DJ Koze, LCD Soundsystem along with Miami’s best local music acts. III Points stays true to its roots and authenticity as a hyper-local festival, with every stage featuring a local act performing. Check out a quote from the co-founder of the festival below along with the full line up under that! Pick up your tickets here.

“Its beautiful to watch this project come full circle with LCD Soundsystem headlining III Points this year,” says David Sinopoli, co-founder of III Points. “James Murphy was one of the first people to believe in our festival when it was just an idea in 2013. Now in our fourth year, we’re ready to take that next step with some headlining talent, and it just so happened to be the year he was putting the band back together. 2016 is starting to feel cosmically aligned.”

While there’s no denying that the main reason most, if not all, of us go to music festivals for is the music. However, there’s definitely something refreshing about attending a festival that not only delivers on all counts musically, but also has a well-curated slate of ancillary activities to explore and try. Coming into its third year, Mysteryland USA has done just that, delivering a stellar lineup featuring Bassnectar, Skrillex, ODESZA, and more, alongside an impressive slate of art and cultural offerings. This year, Mysteryland USA will feature a Healing Garden for yoga, meditation, and more, a 50′ Incendia Fire Dome, a late night comedy tent, post-festival movies, and a strong food lineup of New York’s finest, amongst others, to make sure festival-goers are constantly engaged in trying something new and doing something fun. In addition to the arts & culture lineup, Mysteryland USA is partnering with Splice for one lucky producer to open up the Boat Stage on Saturday by entering in their Gramatik “Anima Mundi” remix competition. You can find more information on the competition here.

At just 16, DJ/producer Callie Reiff has done more in her career than most could ever dream of doing. She’s played in front of packed crowds all over New York City, opened for bass-heavy hitters Jauz, Mija, Zedd, and Tchami, and has one of the top-streamed Nest HQ Minimix performances in the past year on SoundCloud. To take it one step further, she’s recently taken on the duty of throwing down one of the biggest parties in New York City this weekend. LA’s premiere party people of Space Yacht have traveled cross-country to deliver their first ever NYC affair, and have enlisted Tin Pan Alley and Callie Reiff to take control of the party. The lineup includes a wild list of up-and-coming talent like Andrew Luce, Dirty Chocolate, and Hunt For The Breeze, with a particular addition of a few special guest performances.

Events | Mysteryland USA Artist Spotlight: Kyle Mooney

The third iteration of Mysteryland USA is right around the corner, and as we count down the days until June 10th, there’s a lot to plan, and even more to listen to. The ID&T-produced festival has already unveiled two phases of its stand-out lineup, and this year promises to be the biggest and best edition of the festival in America to date. Over the course of two days, nearly 100 artists will call Bethel Woods home, from headliners like ODESZA, Skrillex, and Bassnectar, to stellar undercard offerings like Gesaffelstein, Claude VonStroke, REZZ, amongst others, spread across six stages of bumping music. With so many can’t-miss artists to see, and even more activities to do at the festival, it’s tough to decide which artists take priority, and which ones will fall by the wayside, and schedule conflicts only serve as yet another source of anxiety before the festival.

In a new editorial series leading up to this year’s Mysteryland USA, we’re spotlighting an artist on the lineup that we consider can’t-miss for the weekend. Whether its because of a phenomenal live show, a brand new album, or stellar DJing skills, we hope that this spotlight series will help you wade through some of teh schedule conflicts easier. You can get your tickets to Mysteryland here.

This week’s Mysteryland USA spotlight is the SNL comedian, Kyle Mooney.
