Coachella 2019 has come and gone. As is tradition with Coachella, both weekends were loaded with surprises, special guests, and an all around palpable feeling that you are a part of something special. Although news of a last minute Kanye West headlining performance cancellation hit shortly after the lineup dropped – that doesn’t mean it was a Kanye-less weekend. Not by a long shot. Kanye joined Coachella for an exclusive Sunday Service at 9 am on Easter morning.
Year after year – you don’t have to look hard to find the same comments about Coachella – that “No one is there for the music” or millions of variations of the phrase “Influencer Olympics.” But in the end – most of the people are just like you – they want to hang out and listen to great music. So don’t let the loud minority of opinions hinder you from going to Coachella. We highlighted some of our favorite acts from Coachella 2019 below.
Amma Lunoe’s early afternoon Sahara Tent set was the perfect set to kick off Coachella 2019. She had the crowd in the palm of her hand and enjoyed every second – playing through her huge collection of music. She took the stage with a couple of dancers – sporting a bug mask and a horse mask and the trio on stage might have danced harder than anyone in the Sahara tent all weekend.
Jpeg Mafia had a small crowd – but possibly one of the … Read More
Spring Awakening Music Festival is celebrating its first year in its new home, situated right outside of Chicago. SAMF promises 2019 to be the biggest, most immersive Spring Awakening yet. With a strong lineup across all 3 days – it might be hard to lock down a schedule – so we are helping you out and including some of our favorite bass-heavy acts across the three days. With branded stages like Destructo‘s AMF stage and Spring Awakening’s beloved Bass Kitchen – there is something for everyone. Check out some of our favorite bass-centric acts and the full lineup below.
Masteria has been thriving on the dark side of house music for the last year. With two EP releases on Tchami’s Confession label, he is very much ready to take it to the next level – and so are we.
Virtual Riot is a true master of sound design. If there’s a genre in dance music, Virtual Riot, has at least dabbled in it – but he will no doubt be bringing his brutal take on dubstep to Spring Awakening’s Bass Kitchen stage.
2FAC3D b2b Dogma
What is a festival without its locals? Dogma and 2FAC3D are going to bring their taste of Chicago bass to Spring Awakening. It’s only going to be 3 men on that stage – and if you’re there – you might have a chance to see the destruction they bring. In the words of Dogma – “Tearout isn’t dead.”
After just one year of calling Virginia Key home, Ultra Music Festival has announced there will be a new home for the 2020 edition of Ultra. In a statement put out today by Ultra, the festival has “voluntarily terminated” its license with the city of Miami. Ultra is already “finalizing a new South Florida location that will serve as an incredible and permanent home for Ultra Music Festival.” The decision to move locations was based on feedback from their post-event survey along with the tumultuous arrangements and travel issues incurred at this year’s festival. It is still unknown what this means for the annual Miami Music Week, which corresponds with Ultra’s festivities. Read Ultra’s full statement below.

Miami Music Week was a grand success. Offering a variety of hectic pool parties, afterparties, and exclusive label showcases. It’s a giant culmination of everything that will transpire the coming year in electronic music. Kicking off the festival season in big fashion, we wanted to highlight some of the best parties you may or may not have missed out on in Miami Music Week this year.
Drumcode took over Club Space for an extensive party that lasted till 6pm the next day. Bringing in heavy hitters from their lucrative roster like ANNA, Dubfire, and Adam Beyer; techno enthusiasts were treated to a night they wouldn’t forget.
Brownies & Lemonade held their annual Miami Music Week party and this time they truly outdid themselves. Hosting the legendary return of Dog Blood, this stacked lineup brought a sold out crowd to Mana Wynwood for a night full of surprises.
SHAQ’s Fun House was the exclusive soiree that guests had hoped for. With only limited high-priced tickets being sold, the buck definitely proved itself worthy. The surprise lineup brought out DJs like Kaskade, Diplo, Armin Van Buuren, Oliver Heldens, and more.. surrounded by celebrities, open bars, carnival games, and food.. not sure what else you can expect from the Diesel himself. It was one of the most insane nights and those who were there to witness it unfold would say the same.
Dirtybird Players remained a highlight of the week. Partying till the morning to the sounds of groovy house music was well … Read More
What a year it was for Ultra Music Festival. After being hit with the heavy news that the Bayfront Park was no more, organizers scrambled to find a perfect new home for the spectacle. Familiarizing themselves with the stunning Virginia Key Beach, the venue was massive, overlooking the sea, and provided a generous facelift to the positive atmosphere all weekend. It was the perfect place to kick off a new era for Ultra. Celebrating its 21st edition, so much took place and we’re here to highlight some of the best moments of Ultra 2019.
The Chainsmokers surprised many with their performance to close out the festival. Contrary to the uplifting and catchy melodies you’ll hear on the radio, the duo went all out to premiere new collaborations with ILLENIUM, Crankdat, and more. The surprisingly aggressive set blew us away and really shined some light into what the future holds for one of electronic music’s biggest acts.
Arguably one of the most anticipated sets of the weekend. The reunion of Skrillex and Boys Noize truly lived up to the hype. Aside from bringing Ty Dolla $ign up to premiere new music, they flashed the crowd with a spur of unreleased bangers that only confirm Dog Blood is BACK. In an era where house music is at its best, the duo will certainly thrive in EDM’s current climate. We’re also just really happy to have Skrillex back.

After 8 years at sea, Holy Ship! is checking in its sea legs and coming to land. For years, attendees would board a cruise ship and enjoy a music festival at sea for four days. There won’t be a cruise ship in 2020, instead Holy Ship! is introducing a brand new all-inclusive resort party.
Holy Ship! Wrecked will invite attendees to Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic for four days of beach and pool parties with all expenses paid. That means open bars, that means unlimited food and room service, that means 4 days of Dominican Republic Debauchery. Although the party isn’t at sea anymore, it seems that there will still very be a party. Prebookings begin May 3rd.
