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. It’s a reminder to all of us to be there to support and love all our friends family members who may be struggling with mental health issues.” Avicii: a pioneer of EDM 16 show all Avicii: a pioneer of EDM 1/16 DJ Avicii performs onstage during Rolling Stone … [Read more...] about Billboard Music Awards 2018: Chainsmokers and Halsey pay tribute to Avicii
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.

"Have you seen Narcos?", a friend immediately asked as he as he walked into my top-floor hotel room and took in the decidedly top-class view over Medellín, Colombia's verdant, hilly second city. "Because this view is the opening scene of Narcos." He was right, but that was where my trip's similarities with the lawless Medellín of days gone by began and ended during a thoroughly enjoyable long weekend in the capital of the Antioquia region. The place notorious as the "most dangerous city on earth" during the 1980s heyday of Pablo Escobar's Medellín Cartel has undergone a major image change in recent times, and it isn't difficult to see why. El Poblado, the southern district I stayed in, could be a hip area of Barcelona or Brooklyn, with excellent coffee shops and clothes boutiques and some of the best restaurants (I'm looking at you, Alambique and Clandestino) I've been to in a long … [Read more...] about You Medellin kids!
