Before presenting the Top Hot 100 Song winner at this year’s Billboard awards, The Chainsmokers and Halsey paid tribute to Avicii, the influential DJ who died earlier this year. “We’d like to take a moment to talk about our friend Avicii,” Alex Pal of The Chainsmokers told the audience. Drew Taggart, also of The Chainsmakers, continued: “His passing was a great loss for the music world and for us. He was an artist who inspired so many in so many ways, and simply put, he meant so much to us and everyone in the EDM community.” Halsey added: “Everyone who worked with him would agree that he was such a joy and it makes this tragedy all the more painful.

Can Field Day, the music festival previously held in Victoria Park in East London and summer staple of the capital, survive a move to Brockwell Park in south London, a park that killed one festival last year and whose local residents are fighting tooth and nail to reject? International events company AEG won the exclusive rights to music events in Victoria Park for five years from this summer in an open tender, forcing both Field Day and Lovebox, the two-day June and July festivals, both to seek new homes. To many, summer in London entails one or both of these two events, with Field Day in its 12th year and Lovebox in its 17th. Both festivals looked to move to Brockwell Park as their new venue, the South London space sandwiched by Herne Hill, Brixton and Tulse Hill, despite the fact the park was the graveyard for Sunfall Festival, an electronic music festival in 2016 and 2017 that has since folded.

Coachella successfully evolved in its 19th season as a music festival — with Beyonce making history as its first black female headliner ever, jaw-dropping drones from Odesza, increased queer representation across the lineup, and more augmented-reality experiences. Vocal and dance prowess aside, Beyonce elevated the impact of her headlining performance by celebrating black history during her homecoming-themed set, a loud-and-proud homage to historically black colleges. Flanked by more than 100 dancers and marching band members, Beyonce delivered a culturally important set in a year when no rock acts were chosen as headliners for the first time in the festival’s nearly two-decade history. She gave nods to Nina Simone and Malcolm X as well as sang “Lift Every Voice and Sing,” which is often referred to as the “black national anthem” — and then immediately announced a related scholarship initiative that tied back to the … [Read more...] about Coachella 2018: Beyoncé’s boldness, augmented reality and LGBT+ visibility
