At long last, the 2021 EDC Las Vegas lineup has been revealed.

Alison Wonderland, Knife Party, Martin Garrix, DJ Snake, The Chainsmokers, deadmau5, REZZ, Seven Lions, Kaskade, and many more are primed for performances at the festival at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, scheduled for October 22-24.

ZHU and Zedd will throw down at cosmicMEADOW, among others, while Testpilot (deadmau5’s techno alter alias), Patrick Topping, and Eric Prydz are set to rock circuitGROUNDS. neonGARDEN will offer immersive live art installations to go with a curated house and techno lineup, which flaunts Belgian superstar Charlotte de Witte and legendary South African DJ and producer Black Coffee.

One of the festival’s potential highlights could take place at bassPOD, where the three members of Pendulum Trinity—Rob Swire, Gareth McGrillen, and Paul Harding—will reunite for their first performance of a brand new show concept in North America. SVDDEN DEATH’s sinister VOYD alias will also make an appearance for what promises to be one of the most bass-heavy sets of the fest.

Coachella Returns in 2022 – Register for Advanced Ticket Sales

The Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival will return to Indio Valley for two consecutive weekends of cross-genre programming to be held across April 15 – 17 and 22 – 24 of 2022. The dates, confirmed by festival coordinators on June 1, validate prior speculation that the next iteration of the California event would take place in April of 2022.

The revelation of the 2022 dates marks the end of a long and tumultuous period for the festival’s parent company, which was forced to postpone Coachella three times in less than one year due to COVID-19-related health concerns. The successive postponements culminated in an absence of Coachella operation for the first time since 2000.

Headlining acts for the original 2020 dates were in high demand, including Travis Scott, Frank Ocean and, prospectively, Rage Against the Machine. Though the performers for the festival’s formal reactivation have yet to be named, those planning to attend the desert event can register here for access to the 2022 advance ticket sale. Tickets will go on-sale June 4 at 1:00 p.m. ET / 10:00 a.m. PT.

austin city limits lineup 2021

Austin City Limits Lineups Released

October in Austin, Texas is a magical time. While most of the country endures the early signs of winter, locals and tourists alike can be found soaking up the sun and enjoying the warm –but not too warm– temperatures. Now, after a year of absence, that wonderful weather will be accompanied by live music as Austin City Limits is set to return to Zilker Park for two weekends, October 1-3 and October 8-10.

Known for both its music and food, Austin City Limits has become a perfect representation of its hometown. It’s quickly earned a reputation as one of America’s most exciting festivals, as 450,000 flocked to Austin for the 2019 edition. This year’s lineup is sure to draw a similar crowd, as it boasts headliners including George Strait, Billie Eilish, Stevie Nicks, Miley Cyrus, Rüfüs Du Sol, DaBaby, and Erykah Badu.

Dance music lovers can rejoice as Chris Lake, Lane 8, Alison Wonderland, and Chanel Tres will also be playing both weekends to get dancefloors moving and grooving. Other standouts including Megan Thee Stallion, Machine Gun Kelly, Doja Cat, Modest Mouse, Marc Rebillet, Phoebe Bridgers, and Greta Van Fleet have also found a home on the lineup for both weekends as well.

Unlike other festivals, ACL has two distinct lineups for each weekend with their own standouts in each. The first weekend will see artists like St. Vincent, Chet Faker, Tanya Tucker, Asleep At The Wheel, Mob Rich, and Joy Oladakun, to name a few. On the second weekend, other artists ranging from Madeon and LP Giobbi to Trixie Mattel and Hinds will be taking the stage to help bring the festival to a close.

Lollapalooza 2021 Lineup Released

Post Malone, Tyler the Creator, Miley Cyrus and The Foo Fighters will be among the headliners when Lollapalooza returns to Grant Park for its 30th anniversary July 29-August 1. The festival returns at full capacity after a year away due to the still-ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Attendees at this year’s festival must be fully vaccinated or provide a negative COVID-19 test obtained within 24 hours of each festival day.

Other returning acts include Illenium, Marshmello and Dababy. Roddy Ricch, who had a major 2020 despite the pandemic (thanks in no small part to TikTok) is a notable performer set to please the crowds who missed out on seeing him live last year. Three-time Grammy winner Megan Thee Stallion makes her Lolla debut this year after exploding into the mainstream with hits like “Savage” and “WAP.” Her appearance is much-welcomed after a lack of female headliners in years past.

Ten years after they played a now-classic rainy set at the festival, perennial rockers The Foo Fighters return to the Lolla stage. Much beloved, their unsurprising appearance is another reminder of the middling state of mainstream rock ’n’ roll. Whereas the festival’s pop, hip hop and electronic headliners continue to represent a crop of performers hand picked off the top of the Billboard Hot 100 charts, the rock acts often fall into the throwback vein.

According to Mayor Lori Lightfoot’s office, additional details on the festival and its entry process will be released in early July. The festival announced more than 165 bands and artists Wednesday. Four-day passes begin at $350 and go on sale at at noon Wednesday, while one-day tickets have not yet been announced or on sale. Typically, Lollapalooza waits until four-day passes are sold out to announce the day-by-day lineup and put single-day tickets on sale.

The full lineup:

Foo Fighters, Post Malone, Tyler the Creator, Miley Cyrus, Dababy, Marshmello, Illenium, Journey, Megan Thee Stallion, Roddy Ricch, Kaytranada, Brockhampton, Playboi Carti, Young Thug, Limp Bizkit, Modest Mouse, Jack Harlow, Polo G, Trippie Redd, $uicideboy$, Alison Wonderland, Slander, Steve Aoki, Brittany Howard, Band of Horses, Jimmy Eat World, Dermot Kennedy, Young the Giant, Lauv, Giveon, Angels & Airwaves, Iann Dior, Saint Jhn, All Time Low, Mt. Joy, Marc Rebillet, Whitney, Dominic Fike, Surfaces, Tchami, Jauz, Freddie Gibbs, The Front Bottoms, Big Wild, Kim Petras, Yellow Claw, Subtronics, Oliver Heldens, Cash Cash, Oliver Tree, Omar Apollo, Ashe, LP, Arizona Zervas, Tate McCrae, Earthgang, Rico Nasty, Jpegmafia, Jacob Banks, White Reaper, Peekaboo, Olivia O’Brien, Orville Peck, Princess Nokia, Cautious Clay, Dayglow, Trevor Daniel, Flo Milli, Bia, Flipp Dinero, TNGHT, AG Club, Boy Pablo, Elohim, Cam, Slowthai, Mick Jenkins, Tobi Lou, Drama, Grandson, Cavetown, Toosii, MXMTOON, Noga Erez, Sullivan King, Dabin, Saymyname, Riot Ten, Lost Kings, Dombresky, Wooli, RMR, Ed Maverick, MAX, Hinds, Porches, Emotional Oranges, Black Pistol Fire, Peach Tree Rascals, Elderbrook, JXDN, Jessia, Dr. Reach, Cannons, Vintage Culture, Gus Dapperton, Jawny, Sir Chloe, LP Giobbi, CID, The Backseat Lovers, Clever, Goth Babe, Michigander, Tai Verdes, William Black, Rookie, Justin Jay, Almost Monday, Ant Clemons, Chiiild, Joy Oladokun, Night Lovell, Aly & AJ, Chomppa, Vnssa, Level Up, Blossom, Laundry Day, Moby Rich, Njomza, Sophie Cates, NEZ, Sebastian Paul, Brownies & Lemonade All Stars, Ant Saunders, Rence, Kid Quill, Contradash, Mothica, Absofacto, Riz La Vie, Lauren Sanderson, Kenny Mason, Phem, Sofia Valdez, Serena Isioma, Taylor Janzen, Payday, Christian French, Jac Ross, Radkey, Jake Wesley Rogers, Sarah Barrios, Neal Francis, Sa-Roc, Charm La’Donna, Moore Kismet, Julian Lamadrid, Shy Carter, Hoko, Elephant Heart, Migrant Motel, Ottto, The Aquadolls, Jake Duby.

Lollapalooza To Return at Near or Full Capacity this Summer

As the U.S. moves closer to reopening seemingly every day, it looks like a big step forward will come in mid-summer, when the Lollapalooza Festival will return to Chicago with a four-day event at its usual place and date range — Grant Park, July 29-August 1. The city of Chicago gave the event the greenlight at near-to or -full-capacity, insiders report, and an official announcement, likely with headliners, is expected to come next week.

Late Thursday, CBS-2 Chicago cited an unnamed rep at “City Hall” as saying: “The Mayor’s Office and CDPH have been in conversation with several large event organizers, including the team at Lollapalooza, on how to bring these experiences back to Chicago in safe way. We are taking these events case by case and determining how we can ensure the safety of our patrons. While conversations have been moving forward in a positive way, nothing has been confirmed.” However, multiple industry sources tell Variety that the festival is moving forward, and the CBS-2 article also notes that the city plans to reopen with no restrictions by July 4, nearly four weeks before the festival.

Also last month, Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot announced that the city is loosening its current pandemic restrictions, with allowed to operate with 15 people per 1,000 square feet, as reported by the Tribune. The city’s first street festival is scheduled to be the Windy City Smokeout on July 8-11, although full vaccination is required for all vendors, performers and staff, and non-vaccinated attendees would be required to present proof of a negative COVID test taken within three days of entry.

Lollapalooza will not even be the first major festival to be held in the U.S. since the fall of 2019. The three-day hip-hop festival Rolling Loud, with headliners A$AP Rocky, Travis Scott and Post Malone, will take place July 23-25 at the 65,000-capacity Hard Rock Stadium in Miami. New York is also moving ahead with its Governors Ball Festival in September, with a lineup featuring Rolling Loud performers A$AP Rocky, Post Malone, 21 Savage, Megan Thee Stallion and Dababy as well as more Lollapalooza-centric artists like Billie Eilish, J Balvin, Phoebe Bridgers and Portugal. The Man.

It seems likely that many of those artists would perform at Lollapalooza as well.

Spring Awakening Autumn Equinox 2021 Lineup Announced

Chicago is clearly the place to be for festival season’s impending comeback, with Spring Awakening now joining the city’s already bursting fall schedule that includes North Coast Music Festival, ARC Fest’s September premiere, and Lollapalooza‘s reported summer return. Dubbed with an apt, temporary Autumn Equinox rebrand, Spring Awakening will be headed to back to one of their earlier Windy City venues, announcing a two-day event for October 2 – 3 that will be hosted at Addams/Meddil Park for the event’s milestone 10th anniversary.

For those still weighing the lengthy list of festival options for later this year, Spring Awakening makes a convincing case for frontrunner with one of the most stacked dance bills anyone’s seen in a while. Splitting more than 60 acts across the back-to-back October dates, Spring Awakening will be bringing in Martin Garrix, Madeon, hosting RL Grime and Baauer sharing the decks, Midnight Kids, MitiS, Adventure Club B2B Wooli, SIDEPIECE, MK, Said The Sky, Excision, Dillon Francis, and more. From Diplo to Valentino Khan and 4B‘s Hulk Gang cohort, Chris Lorenzo to Galantis, Spring Awakening is promising a raucous comeback in 2021.

Beyond Wonderland Socal 2021 Lineup Revealed

As the shortened festival season continues to shape up for the summer and fall, promoters across the country are driving forward with some truly massive lineup announcements. The latest to join in on the news spree is Insomniac Events as they’ve delivered the details on who will be playing their forthcoming edition of Beyond Wonderland SoCal that is now scheduled to take place on August 27-28 after being moved from its original dates in June.

Announced during Pasquale Rotella’s State Of Insomniac update late this evening, Beyond Wonderland SoCal will feature some of the scene’s top talent and rising stars who will descend upon the expanded version of the NOS Events Center for a weekend of fun. Immediate standouts on the lineup include Dillon Francis, Laidback Luke, Alison Wonderland, Markus Schulz, Tiesto, Deorro, and Diplo, but that’s just the tip of the iceberg.

There’s just about every major genre within the vast dance music scene represented on the lineup for Beyond SoCal this year. Bass lovers will be stoked to catch sets from Subtronics, Flosstradamus, Wooli, and Space Laces. Trance family members will be stoked to see that Craig Connelly, Andrew Bayer, Kristina Sky, Genix, Infected Mushroom, and Jerome Isma-ae have found a home on the bill as well. And yes, even the harder styles will be receiving some love with sets courtesy of Lil Texas, Darksiderz, and Code Black among others.

The big winner on the lineup this year goes to house and techno though, as the lineup is teeming with talent there. House heads will be shuffling away to the beats from artists including Lee Foss, DJ Dan, Born Dirty, VNSSA, Christian Martin, and Walker & Royce. And techno lovers should have no fear with artists like Nicole Moudaber, UMEK, Dubfire, Ilario Alicante, Layton Giordani, Anfisa Letyago, and Carl Craig set to spin.

Per their previous announcement about the shift in dates to August, those who had purchased passes can either attend this edition, transfer them to 2022, or request a refund. Those not planning to attend must act quickly, though as the window to make that change will close on May 11, 2021 at 11:59pm PT.

Beyond Wonderland at the Gorge 2021 Lineup

The dance music scene in the Pacific Northwest might’ve had some ups and downs over the past few years, but Insomniac Events is looking to help reignite the community. Last year, they set their sights on one of the world’s most picturesque venues, The Gorge, for the latest edition of their beloved festival, Beyond Wonderland. But while the debut edition was unfortunately forced to postpone due to the pandemic, greener pastures in 2021 have led to it now being announced for the fall.

Now set to take place on October 1-2, Beyond Wonderland at The Gorge will bring over 65 artists from a diverse range of genres with immediate standouts on the lineup being major names such as Alan Walker, Benny Benassi, Feed Me, Kayzo, Claptone, Alison Wonderland, REZZ, and Tiesto. And there’s a heavy helping of rising stars in the scene including everyone from John Summit and Capozzi to Moore Kismet and Nostalgix who will be throwing down epic sets over the course of the weekend.

Beyond Wonderland at The Gorge will also feature plenty more beyond the music as well. True to form, Insomniac will bring their signature production to the beloved venue to add an extra layer of immersion. While the three stages (Fractal Valley, Cheshire Woods, and Caterpillar’s Garden) will be booming with beats, there’s even more in store as the storybook adventure with art installations and interactive experiences. And unlike other editions of the festival, camping will be available for those looking to stay on site and party until the early hours of the morning at the silent disco.
