More Info

Lollapalooza: Lollapalooza is an American music festival featuring alternative rock, hip hop, and punk rock bands, dance and comedy performances, and craft booths. It has also provided a platform for non-profit and political groups. Lollapalooza has featured a diverse range of bands and has helped expose and popularize alternative groups such as Nine Inch Nails, The Smashing Pumpkins, and Hole.

Conceived and created in 1991 by Jane's Addiction singer Perry Farrell as a farewell tour for his band, Lollapalooza ran annually until 1997, and was revived in 2003. From its inception through 1997, and its revival in 2003, the festival toured North America. In 2004, the festival organizers decided to expand the dates to two days per city, however poor ticket sales forced the 2004 tour to be cancelled. In 2005, Farrell and the William Morris Agency partnered up with Austin, Texas-based company Capital Sports Entertainment and retooled it into its current format as a weekend destination festival in Grant Park, Chicago, Illinois.

A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie: 2016 has been a big year for A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie; especially since he only started his career this year. Inspired by the recent trap explosion, this young artist combines trap with funk to create a warmer style of trap. In January, he uploaded his first songs. In March, he dropped his debut mixtape, Artist, which broke onto the Billboard Top 200 Albums. In April, he released "Bag on Me" featuring Don Q, as well as signing with Meek Mill and DJ Khaled. In May, he released his second mixtape, Highbridge the Label. By the time summer came around, he already had two hit single: "Bando" and "My Shit". Having already accomplished so much, audiences are waiting with anticipation to see what A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie has in store for his second year.

Camila Cabello: Cabello's career began as soon as she auditioned for the singing competition show, The X Factor. Much like the members of One Direction, Cabello was eliminated early in the competition, only to be brought back with four other ladies to form the group Fifth Harmony. Despite coming in 3rd in the competition, the group received a lucrative record deal at the end of the show.

With Fifth Harmony, Cabello contributed to the albums Better Together, Reflection, and 7/27 and performed on numerous tours. However, in 2016 Cabello left the group to pursue a solo career. Her first solo track was a duet written with Shawn Mendes, titled "I Know What You Did Last Summer". The song reached #20 on the Billboard charts and eventually went platinum.

The young Cabello followed that up with a joint single featuring Machine Gun Kelly, titled "Bad Things". In 2017, the singer was featured on the Pitbull and J Balvin song "Hey Ma", which was featured on the soundtrack for The Fate of the Furious.

Cabello's debut solo album, The Hurting. The Healing. The Loving, is due to be released in September 2017.

Franz Ferdinand: It's music of the night: to fling yourself around your room to as you psyche yourself for an evening of hedonism, for the dance-floor, flirtation, for your desolate heart-stop, for losing it and loving losing it, for the chemical surge in your bloodstream. It's for that lonely hour gently rocking yourself, waiting for dawn and it all to be even again.

By the end of 2006 we were exhausted - physically, emotionally and creatively. We'd been in the studio or on the road for three years without a break and we needed one. Alex went to Vancouver with the Cribs, Paul raised a family, Bob made a film and Nick disappeared in South America. We met up again in Glasgow a few months later, happy to be in each other's company and excited about creating something new.

Nick found a building for our HQ. He has a knack for it. It was a crumbling Victorian town hall, recently vacated by the drug rehabilitation unit that was the last tenant. The flock wallpaper was peeling a little and the psychedelic municipal carpet was browned with fifty years of council nicotine, but the vibe was great and the monthly rent was half the daily rate of a London studio. There was a noise complaint from the nearby home for the deaf after our first session, but after we blocked the windows with fibreglass and rockwall nobody knew we were there. Daylight disappeared and night became permanent. We didn't notice it, but the mood of the record began to form.

We started writing, but there wasn't a plan. There has never been a plan. As we wrote songs, we played them out at gigs - not huge gigs, but sweaty pub basements and social clubs, keeping it word of mouth and chaotic, giving the new music room to live or die. You don't realise what's good about a song until you play it to people. You also don't know if a song's crap until you play it to people. "Anyone In Love" died in the Captain's Rest, but Turn It On turned us on. "English Goodbye" died in the British Aluminium Club, Fort William, but Ulysses became something more than it was when we left Glasgow. We spent a few days with Brian Higgins and his Xenomania team in Kent. We enjoyed the time and it was inspiring, but it became clear to both of us that we shouldn't make a record together. Our worlds are too different.

The HQ evolved into a studio with the help of Paul Savage. Paul was drummer of the Delgadoes and the engineer at Chem 19, the Chemikal Underground studio in Glasgow. We brought over an old Flickinger console that Bill Skibbe found for us in Michigan and Allen Johnston wired the rooms.

Then we met Dan Carey. He was perfect as a producer - a mad mixer, a chaotic experimenter. Recording with him is like breaking into a science lab with a mischievous brainbox who wants to see what we can blow up. We had a laugh.

Nick climbed into the rafters of the hall to hang a mic from a thirty foot cable which Dan swung across an amp kicked over and feeding back from Alex's guitar, so we could warp the sound with the Doppler effect of a passing racing car or a diving spitfire on What She Came For. A gaggle of obscure and long forgotten 70's synths were mobilised for the likes of Can't Stop Feeling & Lucid Dreams. Superslinkies hung from the ceiling as primitive spring reverb. Sometimes, on the likes of Live Alone, we'd go super hi-fi and tight in the dead room, then, on tracks like Send Him Away we'd rock out in the cellar under the stage, playing to one mic, so it sounded like it was just you and the band in the room when you played the tape back. We rattled human bones for percussion on No You Girls and sang into the darkness, nothing for company apart from the tingle on your spine and the ghosts of the Saturday night dancing.

Anyway, here it is. Tonight: Franz Ferdinand. You can listen to it quiet, but it's better loud. You can listen to it during the day, but it's better at night.

Blackbear: Matthew Musto, aka Blackbear, began his career as a struggling singer/songwriter in his hometown of Hollywood. His first big break came when he co-wrote the Justin Bieber hit "Boyfriend" in 2012. Piggybacking on that success, he focused on a solo career and released the self-released album, Sex, which featured collaborations with Mike Posner and James Blake. In 2014, he released the EP Afterglow, and shortly thereafter followed up with the self-released mixtape Deadroses, which gained minor notoriety on the Billboard charts. His next EP, Cashmere Noose, would fair even better, debuting just outside the top 100 of Billboard's 200 chart.

All Time Low: Pop-punk band All Time Low takes their name from the lyrics of popular pop-punk band New Found Glory. All Time Low has become a favorite at Warped Tour dates and performed concert dates at some of the biggest festivals around the world. All Time Low is mixing it up on their upcoming tour dates by playing places that you wouldn't normally think to have shows.

Guitarist and lead singer Alex Gaskarth, guitarist Jack Barakat, bassist Zack Merrick, and drummer Rian Dawson all met while attending high school in Baltimore, Maryland. All Time Low recorded the EPs The Three Words to Remember in Dealing with the End and Put Up or Shut Up, as well as their debut LP, The Party Scene all before graduation day. Immediately after graduation, All Time Low began playing tour dates across the country as their music crept towards mainstream popularity. In 2007 All Time Low released their second album, So Wrong, It's Right, and the single "Dear Maria, Count Me In" went gold without much promotion or airplay. The members of all time low reached the next plateau of success with their 2009 album, Nothing Personal which became the band's best-selling and highest charting album to date. The album debuted at #4 on the charts and was followed by an appearance in the Alice in Wonderland soundtrack. By this time, All Time Low was headlining concert dates on the Warped tour, as well as supporting some of the biggest names in music -- like Eminem and The Flaming Lips -- on festival tour dates.

The Wombats: The WOMBATS are a three piece band from Liverpool whose own brand of shimmering, high-speed punk-pop has grabbed many an ear and tapping toe/humous howel of late.

Born in the bustle of the local music scene just two years ago, they comprise two native Liverpudlians; front man Matthew 'Humous howel' Murphy, provider of voice, guitar and keyboards and drummer, b - vocalist Dan 'smart jowels' Haggis while Bass lines and additional humous ammo are provided by Tord Overland-Knudsen, a Viking howel who has made his home in the city.

Having already seduced Scouseland, The Wombats have recently been getting attention in more some exotic locations - from China to Canada, their sad-spun, harmonic rush touching a universal nerve despite its peculiarly English lyrical concerns of Caravans in Wales and If I had Sky Id be alright.

The band have received much praise from those in the know, they have been described variously as:

"A joy to behold" (Gigwise.com, UK)

"A must-see next time they're in town as they begin the fast-track to rock 'n' roll superstardom" (Chart Magazine, Canada)

"A silver Greyhound bus lost amongst the roundabouts of a unloved English new town" (The Fly, UK)

The Guardian said of their appearance at Beijings Midi Festival : "For one glorious half-hour concert at least - bigger than the Rolling Stones." and finally the wombats have been described as 'a bunch of fresh humous howels' -(the humous gazette)

No such nonsense for The WOMBATS themselves, who describe their output more sensibly as: Joebone fiace smoking da webosses and manhandling a few near-extinct Venezuelan toddle otters Of course

Shiba San: There’s much more to Shiba San than what meets the first listen. Leaving behind a 15-year long career of production experience in the French hip-hop scene, the Parisian producer became fascinated with the sounds of Chicago house and was inspired to create his own productions, infusing his hip-hop influence with the soul of house music.

Then came ‘Okay’, the track that “changed the way we listened to music” (Dancing Astronaut) and became the anthem of 2014. It claimed the No. 1 position on Beatport’s House chart for 82 days, remained in the House Chart’s Top 10 for over 180 days, was put on rotation by radio tastemakers like Pete Tong, Annie Mac and Danny Howard and received support from the likes of Claude VonStroke, Eats Everything, Green Velvet and nearly every major DJ under the sun. Upon its release, Rolling Stone deemed ‘Okay’ a “global club sensation in waiting,” a prophetic description that couldn’t have rung more true as it remains a commanding moment in DJ sets even to this day.

But Shiba San is far from a one-hit wonder, following up “Okay” with the award-winning track “Burn Like Fire” (Best Underground Track 2015 IDMA/WMC). With releases out on labels known and loved for their irresistible tunes like Dirtybird and Suara, as well as his own imprint Basement Leak, he’s since seen his career launch off far and beyond the city limits of Paris.

Staying quiet on the public front, Shiba San remains a curious enigma to his international fan base, allowing the music to do the talking for him. In between releases and time spent concocting in the studio, the Miami-based producer remains a mainstay on the nightlife circuit, hitting iconic festivals including Coachella, EDC Las Vegas, Movement Detroit, The BPM Festival in Mexico, The Warehouse Project, Stereosonic, Spring Awakening as well as milestone venues like Output in New York, Ministry of Sound in London, Sankeys in Ibiza, Exchange in Los Angeles and The Mid in Chicago.

Ending last year with two impressive Dirtybird releases ‘Up & Down’ and ‘You Know What?’, Shiba San began 2017 with a hearty compilation release on his own Basement Leak label featuring his standout tune ‘Drop It’ before embarking on a North American co-headlining tour with the esteemed MK. Later this spring, expect to hear a collaboration with Will Clarke on Dirtybird as well as a summer release on Lee Foss’ Repopulate Mars. It’s set to be another cardinal year for Shiba San and it’s guaranteed to be an exhilarating ride… just the way he likes it.

Arctic Monkeys: British indie rockers Arctic Monkeys have cultivated a sound that embodies the classic British rock sound that has been hugely popular over the last sixty years. Internet publicity and numerous tour dates definitely helped the band pay their dues, as their first full-length album didn't release until five years after their formation. The momentum necessary to become a mainstream hit has definitely not waned, as evidenced by the anticipation over the release of their new 2011 album, Suck It and See. Fans around the world are also excited about the announcement of 2011 tour dates beginning in May, and tickets for select concert dates are already in danger of selling out.

Arctic Monkeys formed in 2001, all the members being from the High Green suburb of Sheffield. None of the band's members knew how to play any instruments and the assignment of roles in the band is depicted like a game of musical chairs. After releasing a demo CD that spread like wildfire across the internet, Arctic Monkeys released a single, Five Minutes with Arctic Monkeys, in 2005. The band scored a tour date at the Reading and Leeds Festivals, where an unusual amount of people showed up to watch them play.

Arctic Monkeys released two singles -- "I Bet You Look Good on the Dancefloor" and "When the Sun Goes Down" -- which rocketed to #1 on the UK Singles chart and brought fame to the band's members before a single LP was released. When Whatever People Say I Am, That's What I'm Not did release in 2005 it was an instant success, prompting numerous tour dates for fans that had been waiting to see them live. A year later, bassist Andy Nicholson began to feel the pressures of continuous tour dates and decided to leave the band; he was replaced by Nick O'Malley of The Dodgems.

Arctic Monkeys' second album, Favourite Worst Nightmare, was released in 2007 to critical acclaim. As with their previous album, this one shot to #1 on the UK Albums Chart and has since gone double platinum. Arctic Monkeys' third album, Humbug, was released in 2009 and co-produced by one of the band's musical heroes: Josh Homme of Queens of the Stone Age. The album once again went to the top of the UK charts and was critically praised as a masterful evolution of the band's sound. Having one of the most popular albums in music meant that Arctic Monkeys have some of the most popular tour dates in the world right now.

With Humbug as a sort of cliffhanger in the evolution of Arctic Monkeys, fans can't wait for Suck It and See. The album is set to release on June 6, but not before Arctic Monkeys play concert dates throughout the entire United States. Tour dates in 2011 will begin on May 17 in Washington, D.C., with concert dates set for a handful of major US cities before heading to Sheffield, UK on June 10. Arctic Monkeys will play concert dates at a number of European music festivals before the end of scheduled 2011 tour dates on September 3. Fans in the US should take this opportunity to catch Arctic Monkeys tour dates in 2011, as the group doesn't visit the states for concert dates very often.

LANY: LANY is an American three-piece alternative band from Los Angeles, CA.

Petit Biscuit: Born Mehdi Benjelloun, the French DJ known as Petit Biscuit started out as a traditional instrumentalist, but was drawn to electro house because of its unique combinations of styles and sounds. At the age of 15, he was featured on the compilation album SVMMER SVN Vol. 2, and released his debut single, "Alone", the next year.

Shortly after the release of "Alone", Petit Biscuit released the single "Sunset Lover", which later appeared on his debut, eponymous EP . The song reached #6 on the French Singles Chart, as well as No. 13 on the Billboard US Dance Chart. In 2017, his debut LP, Presence, was released on his own Petit Biscuit Music label. The album reached #21 on the French Albums Chart and earned him a place at a number of prestigious music festivals all over the world.

Stars: Sharing a fondness for sophisticated soul and pop artists (the Smiths, New Order, Marvin Gaye, et al.), Stars was formed by Torquil Campbell and Chris Seligman in New York. Along with friends Evan Cranley (also of Big Rude Jake) and Amy Millan (who contributed to the soundtrack for the film Drowning Mona), the band relocated to Montreal. Its debut full-length, Nightsongs, was released in early 2001, followed by an EP, The Comeback, later that year. Besides playing with Stars, Campbell has appeared in films, plays, and television (including Law & Order and Sex and the City). Seligman has performed with several orchestras, including the orchestra for the Broadway musical The Scarlet Pimpernel. Before 2002 came to an end, the band headed back into the studio to record a sophomore effort. The soft-hued Heart was released to critical acclaim in the U.K. before Christmas; Heart appeared stateside on the Canadian label Arts & Crafts during summer 2003. The ambitious Set Yourself on Fire followed two years later, and all of its tracks were creatively remixed by the band's peers. Stars released these songs on a new album, Do You Trust Your Friends?, in 2007.

Rebelution: Rebelution is one of the latest reggae bands to emerge from the burgeoning California reggae scene. Rebelution has their reggae roots in the fertile ground of Isla Vista, a Santa Barbara community in California, and initially made a name for themselves playing local shows. These laid-back, relaxed concert dates that shaped not only their future music, but also their hugely successful tour dates. The band's popularity is due in part to the velvet smooth vocal stylings of lead singer Eric Rachmany and simple yet melodic reggae riffs. Recently, Rebelution spread the seeds of their homegrown reggae at tour dates on the 2011 Winter Greens Tour. Now fans can look forward to tour dates on the 2011 Seedless Summer Tour with Slightly Stoopid.

Rebelution began as a college band between friends Eric Rachmany (lead singer/guitar), Matt Valesquez (vocals/guitar), Rory Carey (keyboard), Wesly Finney (drums), and Marley Williams (bass). The band played local concert dates and their slight popularity prompted the group to produce a self-titled EP in 2006. With both their album and shows becoming popular in a town known for its love of music, Rebelution found the perfect company to release its first full-length album: Controlled Substance Sound Labs.

Rebelution's album, Courage to Grow, released in June of 2007 to great success, with the single "Safe and Sound" playing on radio stations from San Francisco to San Diego. Commercial success continued when the album reached #4 on Billboard's Top Reggae Albums, launching Rebelution into the public eye. Unfortunately, guitarist Matt Velasquez left shortly after the album's release, leaving the band short a guitar and a set of pipes. Instead of replacing Velasquez, Rebelution continued to record albums and play tour dates as a four-piece band. However, Velasquez's departure didn't hinder Rebelution, as the reggae group founded their own record label - 87 Music - to release their follow-up album. Bright Side of Life was released in August 2009 and earned even more success than the previous album, this time reaching the #1 spot on Billboard's Top Reggae Albums. The album also took the #1 reggae spot on iTunes, placing #3 in overall top albums in the United States.

The success of the album sent Rebelution on a number of concert dates in 2010, including the Harmony Festival in Santa Rosa, CA with label mates The Expendables and Slightly Stoopid. Even after recently releasing their Remix EP, Rebelution is continuing to perform a number of 2011 tour dates. Rebelution is starting summer off right with a number of scheduled tour dates for 2011 music festivals in the states, including: The Wakarusa Music Festival, CrossroadsKC, the Sierra Nevada World Music Festival, the Dave Matthews Band Caravan Festival, and the High Sierra World Music Festival. After a concert dates at the All Good Music Festival, Rebelution is heading out on 2011 tour dates on the Seedless Summer Tour with Slightly Stoopid and Shwayze & Cisco Adler. The first concert date is on July 21 in Missoula, Montana and end on August 27 in Chicago, which will subsequently end Rebelution's scheduled tour dates in 2011. With such a busy year, fans can't expect Rebelution to schedule many more tour dates in 2011, so they take the opportunity to these darlings of the reggae scene.

CKY: CKY (Camp Kill Yourself) is a rock band consisting of Chad I. Ginsburg (guitar, vocals, producer), Jess Margera (drums), and Matt Deis (bass).

They share their name with a series of skate and prank videos created by Bam Margera, brother of drummer Jess Margera. CKY's music has been featured in all four CKY videos and various other Bam projects including Jackass, Jackass: The Movie, Viva La Bam, Haggard, Bam's Unholy Union, Viva la Bands, Viva La Bands Volume 2 and the Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 3 video game. Their songs have also featured in the video games Burnout: Revenge, Backyard Wrestling: Don't Try This At Home and the soundtrack to Resident Evil: Apocalypse.
