Woodstock “Leak” Reveals Potential Headliners For 50th Anniversary

Last weekend music fans were in a frenzy over the news of Woodstock’s 50th Anniversary music festival (us included). This weekend, it’s all about the projected headliners. As the rumor mill might have it, Pearl Jam, Foo Fighters, and Eminem could be leading the soundtrack of Woodstock in 2019.

Official 50th teasers have begun and The Festive Owl has unleashed a potential leak detailing an event called Journey On. The flyers boast “6+ stages, 35,000+ people, Woodstock legends + more.” The lineup centers around classics, pop, rock, hip hop, latin, country, and — oh yes — EDM. What else could this be if not the Woodstock event we’ve all been waiting for?

According to the flyer, Pearl Jam, Eminem, and Foo Fighters are just some of the artists being approached by the festival. The list goes on: Chance The Rapper, Pink, Lorde, The Weeknd, Coldplay, Kesha, Mumford and Sons, Lumineers, Demi Lovato, Ariana Grande, Graham Nash, Neil Young, Phish, Joan Baez, Bon Jovi, Elton John, The Doobie Brothers, Zac Brown Band, Florida Georgia Line, and Jason Aldean.

In the EDM realm, huge names like Daft Punk, Swedish House Mafia, deadmau5, Skrillex, Steve Aoki, and The Chainsmokers are being thrown around. This sounds ambitious alright, but if any event could pull it off it just might be Woodstock.

Original founder Michael Lang recently confirmed there are “definite plans” for Woodstock’s 50th Anniversary and that he is “indeed” excited about what’s to come. Planners have their sights set on Bethel Woods, NY, the very location of the first Woodstock.

Of course, nothing is set in stone — but view the purported leak below.

The Chainsmokers Drop Fresh Thanksgiving Mix Exclusively For BBC Radio 1

The Chainsmokers have been touring relentlessly in 2018. After crushing their Ultra Music Festival performance in March, they took the show on the road with drummer Matt McGuire and have hit pretty much every territory on Earth. As such, if you’ve seen them more than once this year, you’ve likely been witness to the same set – not that exciting the third or fourth time.

That’s why we’re extra excited to learn that The Chainsmokers dropped an exclusive Thanksgiving mix for Annie Mac on BBC Radio 1 with a completely new setlist. The new mix features a much wider variety of music, hitting hip hop heavy and veering into pop and dubstep throughout.

The mix can be listened to here – also listen to their still-evolving Sick Boy album below, featuring the new songs “This Feeling” with Kelsea Ballerini and “Beach House.”

Axwell Drops New Record & Confirms New Swedish House Mafia Music

With Swedish House Mafia (almost) in full effect, we’ve been curious to find out where Steve Angello, Axwell, and Sebastian Ingrosso want to take their solo careers, at least for the time being.

Axwell Λ Ingrosso previously stated they plan on putting their duo on the shelf, but each respective artist will continue with their solo projects. There are not two dots and one extra, there are three dots. This seems to be the case, as Axwell unleashes a brand new, exciting track of his own.

In regards to this record, Axwell says it simply felt like the right time to release “Nobody Else.” The producer says this one reminds him of his older records, like “I Found You,” but presented in a fresh way.

As for Swedish House Mafia, Axwell says it’s also the right time for the reunion of the iconic EDM supergroup. He confirms, “of course” there is new music is on the way from the trio.

This is the “Hottest Record in the World!” Listen to the song and the interview with Annie Mac below.

Grandtheft Delivers Trapped Out Work Of Art with “Jackson Pollock” ft. Cadence Weapon

It seems every time we hear a new track from Grandtheft he takes on new form. This time around he lays down a chilling trap beat with an assist from Cadence Weapon, out now via Deadbeats.

Jackson Pollock” rocks heavy bass, deep, menacing vocals and an overall, trapped out atmosphere. Less is more with this savage beat, as Grandtheft allows Cadence Weapon’s commentary to power the track forward. These guys take a confident approach with their collab and sell it with conviction.

Jackson Pollock, an artist known for his own style, gained massive attention for his unique style of dripping paintwork and overall expressionism. Similarly, these musicians paint a picture through sound — and this work of art is sure to turn heads.

This the real thing. This is not a copy. This the ace of spades. This no gin and tonic. Listen here.

VINAI Apologize Following Use Of Insensitive Language In Asia

VINAI have formulated a response after coming under fire for using some insensitive and arguably racist language while touring in Shanghai and Taipei. The original videos shown here, which were uploaded to the guys’ Instagram story, come across as disingenuous and even mockatory.

Now, they have issued an apology:

Hey guys …we are sorry we made a huge mistake and offend some of our fans which was NEVER our intention. Every friend of ours knows how much we love china and our fans. We sincerely apologize if we didn’t come across that way…people said that we are racist but we are not, we are against this…we are all the same

It sounds like this is a really bad joke gone terribly wrong. At least the guys of VINAI are taking full responsibility for their actions, apologizing to those they may have offended, and moving forward.

Let’s just hope the Asian EDM community is receptive to their message. See below.

Psyntimental Take Unorthodox Approach To Bass Music With New EP [LISTEN]

Sick and tired of the same old bass music? Psyntimental has a newly released treat just for you with their Computer Based Science EP, which dares to be different.

Psyntimental is best absorbed with an open mind, so move forward if you have that intact. Their vast and unapologetically raw soundscape covers a lot of ground, as each of their nine tracks offers up a journey of its own.

One of the EP’s true gems, “!ll Sh!t” with Fendz finds an untamed blend of in-your-face trap and bass. “Tripping Over the Ocean” takes a more melodic approach, presenting a digital anthem to take note of. “Mental Rezistance” with Rezistor creates yet another unique space, approachable on its surface and gnarly to its core. That’s just scratching the surface.

This Michigan-based duo has been making waves in the underground bass music scene for a while now. However, it cannot be guaranteed that they’ll stay underground for long. Just this year, Psyntimental were dubbed the Untz Challenge IX winners by fan vote. The contest brought their musical vision to Electric Forest, Summer Camp, Imagine Festival, Camp Bisco and beyond.

Their brand new Computer Based Science EP marks the dawn of a new era for Psyntimental, as they begin to infiltrate the bass music scene on their own terms. There’s no doubt, we’ll look back on this release years from now and hear the early makings of an act about to blossom into something much bigger than is able to be currently imagined.

REPORT: This Show Was So Turnt A Couple Got Thrown Out For Having Front Row Sex

Anything goes at a rock show. Well, almost anything…

One couple decided it would be a good idea to have sex at a Machine Head show on Wednesday night, which took place at the House of Blues in San Diego. They didn’t choose to “do it” in a bathroom stall or up in the balcony — they chose to get it on in the front row.

“San Diego! HOLY… FREAKIN… SH*T!!!??” the band took to their social media after the show. “When a guy and gal get ejected for having sex during ‘Davidian’ (in the front row no less!?) you know it’s gonna [be] complete insanity! *no joke!*… WOW, what a welcome back you gave us, we are blown away! Epic circle pits, the jumping was crazy, boobies, sing-a-longs, crowd-surfing-mania, couples having sex!!?”

They continued, “San Diego, after an 11 year break from each other, you are officially ‘un-fired!’ Hands down the best show we have EVER played in your amazing city, and one of the wildest and rowdiest of the entire tour! Thank you all so much for an UNFORGETTABLE night of raging!!”

As for the couple, they were thrown out of the show. Not sure if they finished.

San Diego! HOLY… FREAKIN… SH*T!!!?? When a guy and gal get ejected for having sex during “Davidian” (in the front row no less!?) you know it’s gonna complete insanity! *no joke!*… WOW, what a welcome back you gave us, we are blown away!
