Rage Against The Machine Reuniting, Confirmed First Coachella Headliner For 2020

Just one day after My Chemical Romance announced their first reunion show in seven years, Rage Against The Machine has announced a reunion tour after eight years with five shows planned in 2020.

The news came via a new Instagram account that has since been verified as legitimate. Forbes confirmed, Wayne Kamemoto, a longtime associate of the band just said, “The band’s social media is accurate.”

The band hasn’t played together since their 2011 L.A. Rising show at the Los Angeles Coliseum. Guitarist Tom Morello, drummer Brad Wilk and bassist Tim Commerford teamed with Public Enemy’s Chuck D and Cypress Hill’s B-Real for Prophets Of Rage in May 2016. Frontman Zack de la Rocha has also reportedly been working on some solo material, though the last time he released anything was also in 2016.

Two of the dates revealed will be at Coachella, confirming them as the first headliners revealed for 2020. It will be interesting to see how the landscape of the festival changes with a more punk-centric and divisive headliner.

See the post and all dates below. Tickets will be available here.

My Chemical Romance Announces Reunion Show In LA Next Month

My Chemical Romance just announced their first show in seven years and fans are freaking out.

After updating their profile picture and cover photo on Facebook, the band revealed a “RETURN” show set for Friday, December 20, 2019 in Los Angeles at the Shrine Expo Hall. Tickets go on sale tomorrow at 12:00 PM PST with prices starting at $149.

The general standing capacity of the Shrine Expo Hall is approximately 5,000, so this will sell out instantly. Hell, even if this was at the Hollywood Bowl, (capacity: 17,000) it would still probably sell out in seconds.

Tickets will be available via AXS here. You will be able to find tickets for resale here after the initial sale sells out.

Deadmau5, Eric Prydz, REZZ & More: Your EDM’s Stage Guide to EDC Orlando 2019

EDC Vegas may still be the flagship Insomniac event, but a smaller spin-off has become its own force of nature. It’s suitable for a festival set in a state threatened by hurricanes, heat waves with scolding sunburns and the dreaded Florida Man. Thankfully, this festival is in November, away from hurricanes and the worst of the Florida sun. No promises on Florida Man though…but expect a lot of happy ravers.

EDC returns to Orlando next weekend, this time running three days and spanning five stages. EDC Orlando launched nearly nine years ago in May 2011 at Tinker Field, with artists such as Skrillex, Calvin Harris and Goldie on the lineup. Flash forward to 2019: EDC Orlando is still at Tinker Field, but has expanded to be almost a new event entirely.

Last Friday, EDC Orlando announced the festival’s daily lineup by stage, and it’s exciting to see the breadth of talent on display. From pure EDM to rolling tech house, EDC Orlando’s lineups and stages have something for everyone.

Need help deciding who to see? We’d like to help. We picked our favorite artists for each stage, three for each of the bigger stages (kineticFIELD, circuitGROUNDS and neonGARDEN) and bonus picks for the two smaller stages (the debut of stereoBLOOM and the

Disclosure, Chromeo, & More Added To An Already Stacked Djakarta Warehouse 2019

Disclosure, Chromeo, & More Added To An Already Stacked Djakarta Warehouse 2019

Not EDC, not Ultra, but Djakarta Warehouse in Indonesia has presented one of the strongest lineups of 2019. There’s a lot to be said about the undercard and support in curating a festival lineup, but when you have headlining sets from Calvin Harris and Skrillex and Zedd and Martin Garrix… not much else needs to be said.

Better yet, September’s lineup drop was only Phase 1, and the festival has just announced Phase 2. Joining this already stacked lineup will be Disclosure, Chromeo, Markus Schulz, Salvatore Ganacci, Coone, Yung Bae, and still more to be announced.

DWP takes place December 13 – 15 at Jakarta International Expo in Indonesia. Tickets and info here.

If you’ve been following Insomniac’s socials lately, you’ve probably been warned that there’s an impending alien invasion. It’s all going down on New Year’s Eve at the NOS Events Center in Southern California as Insomniac rings in 2020 with Countdown. Picking up from last year’s alien invasion theme, this year’s theme will be New Year’s Invasion 2.0. Insomniac also announced the lineup for this year’s event, and it’s, ahem, out of this world.

First and foremost, the name that stands out the most is The Chainsmokers. This marks the first time the smash-hit duo has performed at an Insomniac festival at NOS since Countdown three years ago. Now, with their expanded live set and status as one of the biggest musical acts in the world, this is sure to be a special performance. The rest of the lineup is pretty stacked too with the usual blend of EDM heavy hitters, bass, and house to please all kinds of tastes. Alesso, Porter Robinson (DJ Set), Galantis, Oliver Heldens, Gryffin (DJ Set), Chris Lorenzo and 12th Planet are some of the highlights.

Tickets for Countdown New Year’s Invasion 2.0 go on sale this Wednesday at 10 AM PT. Check out the full lineup and prepare for the alien invasion. Are they here to PLUR or probe? We’ll find out on New Year’s Eve.

Freaky Deaky Promoter Arrested After Violating Maximum Sound Levels At Festival

A lot goes into making a music festival successful, including the cooperation and a good relationship with local law enforcement. This past weekend at Freaky Deaky outside of Houston, TX, promoter Disco Donnie worked with Chambers County Sheriff Brian Hawthorne to alleviate issues with sound level and traffic on Saturday night.

However, according to a news release, in the final two hours of the festival on Sunday, noise levels rose above the permitted level. Between the violation and complaints from nearby residents, the promoter was charged with “disturbing the peace, under statute 4201 – Disorderly Conduct,” Hawthorne said in a statement.

“I believe the promoter had good intentions, but the entertainers and sound engineers were placing the entertainment of festival attendees over the citizens of our county; therefore, the promoter will have to answer to Chambers County Precinct 6 Justice of the Peace Larry Cryer on violations of unreasonable noise after being notified of the public nuisance,” Hawthorne said.

It’s unclear from the release if any particular individual was arrested, or if Disco Donnie was charged with the disorderly conduct. Your EDM has reached out to representatives for DD for comment and clarification.

From the fans’ perspective, the festival concluded Sunday night with a

Electric Forest May Be Extended for 10th Anniversary Celebration in 2020

Electric Forest May Be Extended for 10th Anniversary Celebration in 2020

Electric Forest may be extended for next year and moving forward.

Rothbury’s Village Council met yesterday to discuss the future of the music festival, coming up on its 10th anniversary. The special meeting’s purpose was to “review and act on the application for a mass gathering permit by Electric Forest, LLC.”

Although the official minutes have not been uploaded to the village’s website yet, sources on Reddit say three major developments were agreed upon:

  • Early arrival on Tuesday
  • Music until 4 AM on Thursday, Friday and Saturday
  • 10-year extension for Electric Forest at current location

If all this is true, this is great news for Forest Family. Travelers from near and far have more time to stretch their legs. Plus, extended hours and an extra day most likely mean an even more massive lineup for 2020 and moving forward. Not to mention, more time in Sherwood Forest!

See details below and stay tuned for official confirmation from Electric Forest. See you in 2020!
