Kanye West Pulled Out Of Coachella And Governors Ball Because The Festivals Wouldn’t Build Him A Giant Dome

On 1/1, just two days before Coachella co-founder Paul Tollett was set to announce Kanye West as one of the stars headlining the desert festival, West sprung a last-minute surprise on the concert promoter. Instead of performing on the main Coachella stage, West asked Tollett to construct a giant, custom-built dome in the … More »

Coachella’s 2019 Lineup: A Solid Balance, but Tame Impala Is a Surprise Headliner

The “biggest music festival in the world” is an inexact term — results would be different based on attendance, gross, influence, duration, or another metric — but there’s little doubt that Coachella is at or near that billing. Its lineup has become a commentary on the state of popular music in the past and coming year […]

Coachella 2019 lineup: The 5 biggest takeaways

The lineup for the 2019 Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival finally dropped after a day-long tease on Wednesday, and if you’d been expecting the rumored headliners to be the real deal, well, at least you got the soon-to-retire Childish Gambino to close out the Friday lineup. The other two headliners arrive as a bit of a surprise with Tame Impala atop the Saturday bill and Ariana Grande on Sunday, and no Kanye West, no Justin Timberlake as the rumors had it in recent months. What else? Well,...

These are the 14 biggest music festival moments in Southern California this year

2018 might have been the year we reached peak festival, with more than 50 notable events with big-name headliners happening around Southern California. Tens of thousands of fans flocked to beaches of Orange County, the Coachella Valley desert, parks in Downtown Los Angeles and ext to the Queen Mary in Long Beach and even a racetrack in Fontana. Our team saw a lot of music at a lot of festivals in 2018 (and let’s be honest, ate a lot of festival tacos, too) and 2019 looks to be even busier. But b...

New Video: A$AP Rocky “Tony Tone”

A$AP Rocky gets a little sentimental in his new video for “Tony Tone.” Not only does the Hidji Films-directed clip star a young Rakim Mayers celebrating his birthday, but finds a current day Rocky hanging out in Harlem with his crew, just like he did in his 2011 breakouts videos “Peso” and “Purple Swag.” This video is just as stylish, too. “Tony Tone” is the fifth video off Rocky’s TESTING LP following “Gunz N Butter,” “Fukk Sleep,” “Praise the Lord (Da Shine)” and “A$AP Forever.” He also re...

A$AP Rocky: Sundress

Fresh off the buzz from his 2018 release, TESTING, comes A$AP Rocky’s Kevin Parker-infused and Danger Mouse-produced track titled “Sundress.” The song samples Tame Impala‘s “Why Won’t You Make Up Your Mind?” from the full-length debut Innerspeaker. The upbeat track is anchored by the sample, but its highest points are Rocky’s chorus and his heartbroken verse—which is reflected in the video’s choose-your-adventure-style love story directed by Frank Lebon.

New Video: A$AP Rocky Feat. Tame Impala “Sundress”

A$AP Rocky’s test isn’t complete just yet. Despite releasing his third album this past summer, the Harlem rapper is seemingly itching to crack open his vaults (perhaps as a response to the tepid reception to his aforementioned project). He previewed a couple new joints during his recent performance at Tyler, The Creator’s Camp Flog Gnaw, including a much-hyped collaboration with Tame Impala’s Kevin Parker, whose other hip-hop and R&B clients include Travi$ Scott, SZA and Theophilus London.

Watch Tame Impala & Theophilus London Debut Their “Theo Impala” Project In LA

For a band who haven't released a new album in more than three years, Tame Impala have had an awfully eventful few days. This past weekend, the band's set at the otherwise-exemplary psych-rock festival Desert Daze was cut off, three songs in, in for lightning storms. And last night, as More »

Desert Daze 2018 Was An Oasis Among American Festivals

For years now, Desert Daze has arrived in October like a mirage in the landscape to which it owes its name. It's a sudden oasis, where psych-rock bands and artists and stoners and adventurous music fans have gathered, culminating in what founder (and JJUUJJUU leader) Phil Pirrone has deemed an “anti-festival.” And while … More »

Desert Daze 2018: These photos show you what it was like to be at the festival

Desert Daze’s inaugural year at the Lake Perris State Recreation Area is in the books. The festival’s seventh year was a wild one — with severe weather that cut short Tame Impala’s set on Friday night and a mellow and cool Saturday that hit the reset button before a perfect beach day on Sunday was capped off by My Bloody Valentine melting everyone’s faces off. These images from photographer Drew A. Kelley show you what it was like to be there. Stefan Burnett of the band Death Grips performs ...

Desert Daze 2018: What you need to know about the first two days of the festival

Desert Daze packed plenty of drama in its first two days at the Lake Perris State Recreation Area. On Friday night, severe thunderstorms rolled through, prompting organizers to pull the plug on the whole night early in Tame Impala’s set. A day later, it was like the rain had washed away the bad vibes of the night before (and the opening day parking woes) with hours of psychedelic rock at the lakeside park. But Friday wasn’t all bad. Pulp’s Jarvis Cocker brought his new project Jarv Is, which inc...
