Voodoo Music Festival

Bottoms Up: Voodoo Music Festival

While we often buy tickets to see our favorite musicians, festivals offer the perfect opportunity to broaden our music schemas and fall in love with new artists. Festivals feature both the biggest names in music (and on the lineup) and artists that are on the brink of greatness (and just a little bit further down the poster). Here are our picks for up-and-coming artists that you might have missed if we had not looked at the lineup from the bottom, up!


Bleached is a musical representation of the phrase, “girl power.” The band’s sound is upbeat punk music with hints of pop and 1970’s rock. Earlier this year, Bleached released their new EP, “Can You Deal?” and a limited edition zine with the same title. The zine includes contributions form some of the most exciting women in music, including Bethany Cosentino of Best Coast, Hayley Williams of Paramore, Lizzo and Liz Phair.

Chicano Batman

Based in Los Angeles, Chicano Batman delivers unique funk music with a Brazilian Tropicália vibe. Their music has laid-back, almost beachy, characteristic, even though the lyrics tackle many complex societal issues. The band’s song, “This Land is Your Land,” was used for a Johnnie Walker Super Bowl commercial celebrating diversity. Chicano Batman is currently on tour with Houston-based band, Khruangbin.

Flow Tribe

Flow Tribe’s music reflects the upbeat, party atmosphere of their home city. The six-piece, New Orleans band has described their sound as “backbone-cracking music,” which encompasses aspects of R&B, soul, big brass, hip hop and Caribbean music. As Voodoo Fest veterans, the band’s live show is sure to bring a good time, full of non-stop dancing.


Pell is one of the most innovative names in hip hop, and he is not going unnoticed in the music world. A few years ago, Pigeons & Planes dubbed him one of the top 25 rappers you should know and he was one of Spotify’s Emerge Artists in 2015. Since then, he has opened for artists like Kehlani and collaborated on an EP with Louis the Child; both of these artists will be performing at Voodoo Fest. After the festival, Pell will be continuing his Greenhouse Party Tour through major US cities.


Jennifer Lee, or TOKiMONSTA, dropped her latest album earlier this month. Lune Rouge is packed with features from a number of artists, including SAINTS, MNDR and Joey Purp. The album follows Lee’s quiet battle with the rare disease, Moyamoya, which left her without the ability to comprehend language back in 2016. Lune Rouge is proof of Lee’s resilience and skill that keep her an unwavering force in the electronic music world.

Austin City Limits 2017 Weekend One: Recap

On Friday morning, masses of brightly-colored individuals took over Zilker Park to mark the start of Austin City Limits Music Festival. However, unlike previous festivals, ACL 2017 held a deeper meaning of fearlessness, resilience and unity.

It is impossible to talk about ACL 2017 without bringing up the heartbreaking events that occurred just days before. In fact, many artists throughout the weekend addressed the Las Vegas shooting. Earlier in the week, festival organizers announced that they would give full refunds to anyone who did not feel safe or comfortable coming to the festival. However, fear did not shake festival attendees, and the crowds at the six stages were as large as usual.

Many artists also addressed the recent passing of rock-legend, Tom Petty. Performances throughout the weekend included covers of Tom Petty songs and shout-outs to the Florida native. The most extreme tribute was when the Red Bull Air Force Skydiving team leapt out of a plane while the PA system and stage screens played Petty’s 2006 ACL performance of “Free Fallin.”

Although the week’s earlier events undoubtedly impacted the festival, the overall vibe was as upbeat as it has been for the past 16 years. We laughed, we cried, we danced and we sang until our throats hurt. ACL always showcases the best of Austin, so here are some of the best things we saw this weekend.

The Best at Crowd Engagement — Vulfpeck

At the beginning of the show, each band member was introduced as if they were athletes. This comedic, feel-good tone continued throughout Vulfpeck’s mid-afternoon set. The band’s infectious funk jams had the whole audience grooving. While their music alone was enough to make for a great set, the band went above and beyond with fun antics that set them apart from other sets at the festival. Some highlights include the guitarist parading through the crowd on the shoulders of security, an impromptu “Ted Talk” and a crowd singalong to Smash Mouth’s “All Star.” Vulfpeck definitely earned some new fans this weekend.

The Best Encore — Jay-Z

Encores by closing artists was a trend this year. And, while each band’s encore was great, no one could touch Jay-Z. At first, many people thought the rap-legend’s show ended early. But, after a few moments, Jay-Z returned. He instructed parents in the audience to cover their children’s ears, then he launched his famous banger, “99 Problems.” Upon hearing those iconic opening lyrics, the crowd went crazy.

The Best Proof of Music’s Universality — La Femme

La Femme oozes cool. This French rock’n’roll band captivated the audience. It did not take long for La Femme to have the whole crowd dancing and cheering to songs that most of them could not understand. La Femme proved that good music can be enjoyed by all, despite language and culture barriers. 

Best Mosh Pit — Alison Wonderland

The air was thick and sweaty at the Tito’s stage on Saturday evening. People began packing into the tent hours in advance to catch one of the rising names in EDM. Once Alison Wonderland took to the stage, the crowd forgot about the heat, and the tent became a nonstop party. During “I Want U,” the crowd was so loud you almost could not hear the actual song. And, when Alison Wonderland’s remix of Dua Lipa’sNew Rules” dropped, the crowd opened up a rowdy mosh pit. Everyone left the set with sweat-soaked clothes and smiles on their faces.

Best Bassist — Flea

Flea is one of the most entertaining bassists to watch. On Saturday night, the talented bassist bopped out onto the American Express stage in the greatest pair of flow-y, multicolored, patchwork pants. From the moment he stepped onstage, Flea never stopped moving. In many bands, the lead singer is often the star of the show. However, with the Red Hot Chili Peppers, there really is not a single star. Instead, it is the band’s cohesiveness and chemistry that makes watching the Chili Peppers so much fun.

Best Place to Watch the UT Game — Barton Springs Beer Hall

After the closing sets on Saturday night, Longhorn fans rushed over to the Barton Springs Beer Hall to catch the end of a very intense University of Texas football game. The areas near the giant screens were flooded with burnt orange. Once fans realized UT won in double-overtime, cheers could be heard from across the festival grounds. The Barton Springs Beer Hall was the spot to grab a beer and catch a football game throughout the weekend.

Best Way to Lose Your Voice — “Mr. Brightside” by The Killers

Mr. Brightside” is just one of those words you know all the words to, and that was very apparent at The Killer’s show on Sunday night. Upon hearing those acclaimed opening guitar notes, the crowd went crazy. The audience sang every lyric and the top of their lungs. 

Best Day to Try One of the Frozen Food Vendors — Sunday

Sunday was easily the hottest day of the weekend. With almost no clouds in the sky, the sun beat down on festival goers. Sunscreen was a necessity, and so was water. While the Hydration Stations, complete with misting fans, provided solace for sweaty attendees, the best way to cool off was with a cold treat. Vendors like Amy’s Ice Cream, Bananarchy, Good Pop and Sno-Beach were popular stops on such a hot, sunny day.

Best Shade — Barton Springs Stage

One of the big changes this year was expanding the festival to allow for more open room. Now, the Barton Springs stage is located on the South side of Barton Springs Road. This stage hosted some of the most exciting artists at the festival, including Zhu, Tove Lo, Solange and Louis the Child. The stage was conveniently situated in a way that blocked the sun and created a shady area for attendees. This area was complete with food and drinks, too.

Now that we’ve seen the best of Weekend One, we’re stoked to see what’s in store for Weekend Two!


The Festival Fistful: Boo! Arizona 2017

Halloween is coming in HOT and things are getting all sorts of weird in Phoenix next weekend.  On October 14th, Boo! Arizona will be returning to Rawhide Events Center with enough bass to blast away the ghouls, goblins and into some next level partying.  We bring you the Festival Fistful to highlight our top 5 picks you can’t miss! You can also follow our Boo!AZ Spotify playlist to jam out to the Boo! Arizona lineup on the go!


12th Planet

The veteran bass-peddler and head honcho of SMOG Records is going to be bringing his OWSLA supported filth to Rawhide, making sure you’re ready to turn UP!  Having recently played Excision’s Lost Lands festival and released the 5-track Let Us Pray EP and single Send It all on top of launching a new sub-label called Disciple Round Table, this man is on a mission for madness and we can’t wait to see him at Rawhide!



Austin’s very own will be traveling to Phoenix this Halloween to turn the heat up way past 10 in the desert.  The king of Crunkstep will be dropping bombs on the crowd just like he’s done at Electric Daisy Carnival, Escape From Wonderland, Warped Tour, and Lollapalooza.  His latest release ‘HITS’ on Bassrush records absolutely SLAPS and we can’t wait to catch him going b2b with 12th Planet to headline this one.


Laidback Luke

Little has to be said about the longtime legend of Laidback Luke to make you excited about seeing him.  Completing the climb from graffiti artist to worldwide superstar, his loose, super live, off-the-cuff DJing style finds him playing Red Hot Chili Peppers at the world’s biggest raves, scratching on CDJs like it’s the 90’s on vinyl and upkeeping both a producer forum and a successful dance music label in Mixmash Records.  In 2012, Laidback Luke was nominated for the best European DJ award from the 27th Dance Music Awards and he’ll be bringing the house down next weekend!


Valentino Khan

The LA based behemoth of bass is back in Phoenix for another round of madness at Boo! Arizona this year.  His style’s range from the deep bassline house sound that gave rise to his majorly successful single Deep Down Low, to the sexy sounds of the demobow riddim and moombahton, which caught the eye of OWSLA head honcho Skrillex as well as Mad Decent’s Diplo and catapulted this mustached monster to the forefront of the world’s largest festivals.



This UK dubstep heavyweight has been a mainstay of every bassheads library since he burst onto the scene in 2011 with his track Organ Doner being licensed out to major compilations by Warner and Ministry of Sound.  Zomboy has played the world’s biggest festivals and his most recent release on Never Say Die records received huge reviews and is sure to turn you upside down.

The Festival Fistful: Austin City Limits

After going Bottoms Up on Austin City Limits and even giving a way a pair of FREE Austin City Limits tickets, we’re grabbing a healthy handful of jams in our Festival Fistful! We’re going to be sharing our top 5 picks for this weekend at Zilker! Be sure to follow our Spotify playlist highlighting the best artists you can find this weekend


Day For Night’s Lineup Cements The Festival as a Gem of American Festivals

The third edition of Day For Night festival will be in Houston from December 15th-17th bringing one of the most multidimensional and eclectic lineups to include multi-platinum rock bands, burgeoning hip-hop artists, rivals of the Kremlin, leakers of top secret United States info, and a portion of the whole thing is going to charity.  With headliners including Nine Inch Nails, Thom Yorke, Solange, Justice, St. Vincent, Tyler The Creator, James Blake, Pretty Lights, Jamie XX and Phantogram, there’s something for everyone here.

To prove that there’s more to the business than selling tickets, Day For Night will be hosting a summit on the intersections of art and activism and donating part of its proceeds to the Greater Houston Community Foundation to help aid with hurricane relief efforts and stand in solidarity with those affected by Hurricane Harvey.  The summit will feature guest speakers including  Chelsea Manning, Laurie Anderson, Pussy Riot’s Nadya Tolokonnikova, and more. The festival will also feature “Soul Cleansing,” a performance piece presented by Saint Heron that includes Solange, Earl Sweatshirt, and Kaytranada.

Attendees also will have the chance to attend a summit on the intersections of art and activism, led by Chelsea Manning, Laurie Anderson, Nadya Tolokonnikova of Pussy Riot, and Lauren McCarthy. The panel will conclude with a separate special performance from Saint Heron featuring Solange, as well as Earl Sweatshirt and Kaytranada.  Houston will also receive an appearance from veteran ambient musician Gas, who released his first album in 17 years, Narkopop earlier this year. He played Barcelona’s Primavera Sound in the spring.

Bottoms Up: Austin City Limits

While we often buy tickets to see our favorite musicians, festivals offer the perfect opportunity to broaden our music schemas and fall in love with new artists. Festivals feature both the biggest names in music (and on the lineup) and artists that are on the brink of greatness (and just a little bit further down the poster). Here are our picks for up-and-coming artists that you might have missed if we had not looked at the lineup from the bottom, up!


Weekend One

Spencer Ludwig

Spencer Ludwig does it all. He is a singer, he is a dancer and he is a trumpeter. His sound could be described as poppy-funk that is super danceable. In 2012, he toured with Capital Cities, and he has also appeared alongside other artists, such as Foster the People, St. Lucia and Fitz & the Tantrums. Earlier this year, he opened for rising pop star, Bebe Rexha. Ludwig is full of star quality, and his music radiates fun. With Ludwig’s exuberant energy and funky trumpet, it is impossible not to dance.


Electro-pop duo, CAPYAC, bring a funk-infused dance party whenever they perform. The band is known to create a party-like atmosphere during their performances, complete with costumes, balloons and other surprise props. Since forming CAPYAC, Delwin Campbell and Eric Peana have toured consistently throughout the United States and at various venues in Austin, their hometown.


While the Austin scene is dominated with indie-rock music, Mélat Kassa breaks the norm with her smooth, passionate R&B. Kassa is from the Austin area, and she attended Cedar Park High School and the University of Texas. However, her family immigrated to the United States from Ethiopia. This identity can be seen within her artistry, especially in the song “Negn (I am),” which is sung entirely in Amharic.

Weekend Two

The Bishops 

Cara, Troy and Luv Bishop combine aspects of electronic, hip hop, R&B and pop music to create wavy, mellow grooves, and they keep it all in the family. Each sibling is bursting with talent. Troy’s beats are creative and versatile. Luv’s rapping is skilled and purposeful. And, Cara’s vocals are silky and sweet. The siblings performed on JamBarge earlier this year, and they are massive force in the Austin hiphop scene.

Okey Dokey

Okey Dokey’s debut album, “Love You, Mean It” is a southern, psych-rock dream. Although the band is officially the brainchild of frontman Aaron Martin and guitarist Johny Fisher, they brought an assortment of other musicians for the album, including members of Houndmouth and Desert Noises. The Nashville-based duo spent part of the summer touring, and they performed at Stubb’s in August. Be sure to catch their return to Austin at ACL Weekend Two.

Day Wave

It’s hard to imagine that the mellow, indie-rock tunes of Day Wave were created by one person. Day Wave is truly Jackson Philips’ baby. In fact, he plays every instrument necessary to the production of Day Wave’s songs. Philips cites his new setting of Oakland, California as inspiration for the project. This is translated through prominent guitar riffs and delicate vocals, which create a nostalgic, beach-y feeling.

Both Weekends

MUNA is a queer-identifying, all-female trio that combines atmospheric pop with meaningful lyrics. Katie Gavin, Josette Maskin and Naomi McPherson met at the University of Southern California and began making music in their dorm rooms. Now, they are bringing their inclusive songs to massive crowds around while on tour with Harry Styles. They will be in Austin both weekends of ACL, and they will be performing at ACL Live with Styles on October 11.


Often described as post-punk, Ought is a Montreal-based quartet bursting with epiphany, energy and existentialism. Juxtaposition is a big part of Ought’s music, especially on their sophomore album, “Sun Coming Down.” Vocalist Tim Darcy often comes across as dry and sarcastic. Yet, the melodies and rhythms can sound optimistic. By combining seriousness with lightness, Ought produces meaningful, interesting music.

Raging Fyah

Reggae-Rock group, Raging Fyah, are bringing their island grooves over to the United States.Raging Fyah’s celebrated brand of reggae focuses on various topics, from personal significance to widespread issues.  The band is from Jamaica, but their reach extends across the globe. They have toured in Europe, Siberia and even New Caledonia, a small island in the South Pacific. Now, Raging Fyah are breaking into the American scene, which is primarily dominated by other Americans.

Bottoms Up: Imagine Music Festival

Imagine Music Festival always boasts a diverse lineup, and this year is no different. The 2017 lineup features multiple genres of music by artists from around the globe. While some of these artists are the biggest names in music (and on the lineup), others are on the brink of greatness (and just a bit further down). Here are five up-and-coming artists that you cannot miss, or maybe you did until we looked at the lineup from the bottom, up!


Nugz Bunny

Atlanta-based Nugz Bunny acquired a following through his original productions and remixes. His popularity increased after placing runner up in the Pretty Lights remix contest a few years ago. Since then, Pretty Lights has dropped Nugz Bunny’s remix in Atlanta and cities around the world. Nugz Bunny has been voted Atlanta’’s best DJ for over two years, so this is a show you for sure should not miss!


With elements of live guitar and drums, Lyftd produces electro-funk that is sure to get your grooving. The Denver-based duo has played many notable festivals, including Electric Forest in Michigan and Summer Camp Music Festival in Illinois.

Stranger Candy

As one of Atlanta’s forerunners in dance music, Stranger Candy has stayed true to an Electro and Progressive House. Despite coming onto the scene when heavier bass genres were popular, Stranger Candy’s dedication to perfecting his sound has allowed him to play some Atlanta’s hottest clubs, which includes a residency at The Iris.

Nora En Pure

Nora En Pure has proven to be a force in the electronic music scene after her club-ready hits like, “Come with Me,” “Saltwater” and “U Got My Body.” By flawlessly combining aspects of indie dance music with deep house, Nora En Pure has earned spots at some of the biggest festivals, including Coachella, Elements Festival and Tomorrowland, where she played the main stage for three hours.

Boogie T

With Boogie T’s infectious dubstep sound, it is impossible to stay still. Recently, Boogie T has a feature on GRiZ’sGood Will Continue,” which is a collection of remixes of tracks on his 2016 album, “Good Will Prevail.” Imagine Music Festival is just a stop on a current tour, which includes stops and festivals all over the United States, so catch him while you can.

Imagine Music Festival: Independent, Adventurous & Genuine

We got the chance to speak with the founders of Imagine Music Festival in Atlanta, Madeleine and Glenn Goodhand, about the festival’s roots, growth & challenges, the future, their favorite IMF moments and even their favorite artists on this year’s lineup.  The electronic/funk camping music & arts festival is one of the few gems of the American festival scene that is still independently owned and operated.  Happening September 22nd-24th, this is guaranteed to be an incredible year for the ATL team and for everyone who will be jamming at Atlanta Motor Speedway!


How did Imagine Festival get started?

Imagine had always been in the back of our heads, as we would see the momentum of our events as Iris Presents start to grow. While Imagine is a unique concept unto itself, the popularity of our club nights and the growth of the scene on the whole is why you have something like Imagine.

Why Atlanta?

Atlanta is home for us. While we have had our hands in events up and down the east coast this is where we maintained our roots over the years. It is a cultural and creative goldmine, intersecting ideas and personalities from all over the country and world. While Imagine is showcasing Atlanta, we are very much using Atlanta to showcase Imagine. Not many cities out there that can rival what is going on here and now.

How has the festival grown in the past few years?

Besides expanding from a two-day, non-camping, city festival to a four-day, camping festival, that takes over an entire speedway? Ha. I guess you could say we’ve grown a touch. Seriously though- the biggest way in which we have grown is in our ability to evolve into a major festival, without losing touch with the fans who have been with us since the beginning. And we’ve done this, by listening and surrounding ourselves with a team that can support and nurture our growth.

What are some of the challenges you’ve faced with operating Imagine Festival independently?

As with almost any independent- it is a matter of resources. That being said, we work with some of the best in the industry- from the team booking our monstrous lineup to the VIP crew to our safety team and our product managers. We are not only getting it done and done well, we are able to maintain that creative freedom that continues to attract fans.

Where do you see the future of Imagine Festival?

Imagine will be constantly be evolving. I think what you saw this past year when festivals were canceling was a lack of interest because a lack of diversity. Putting on a festival is hard work and it is easy for it to become formulaic, but it is those festivals who provide an experience and evolve much in the same way as music does that will succeed. We want Imagine to always be a work in progress, so to speak.

What is one of your favorite experiences with this festival?

It is super rare that we get a minute to do this, but we like stepping out into the crowd to try to experience Imagine as a fan does. See their reactions… what they are responding to and how we can make it even better. It is a true honest response to Imagine, when the fans don’t know it is you that put it on.

Who on the lineup are you most excited about?

I think we both have our favorites. Maddy loves Tiësto and Deadmau5, whereas I am pretty amped to see Pretty Lights and Tiësto. I would say as a piece of advice to not just go after the obvious players. Some of our best received sets last year came from artists that were just starting to come up. Go out and discover something you haven’t heard yet.

What inspired the aquatic theme?

Maddy’s love for mermaids, more than anything else. That and no one else was doing it. Music is such a fluid thing, you never know where it is going- whether it will go around you or blow you over. We want fans to immerse themselves in the experience of Imagine.

Can you describe Imagine Festival in five words or less?

Independent, Magical, Adventurous Genuine, Innovative… and Exciting!

Hurricane Harvey Jamfeed Jambarge 2

JamBarge 2 Postponed to September 15th, 20% of Profits to be Donated to Harvey Victims

Nearly overnight, Hurricane Harvey has come and flipped everything many knew on its head and created a personal hell for many. While no amounts of words, prayers, or condolences could ever reverse the devastation or replace that which has been lost, we must all come together and provide any help we can to those in need. With that in mind, JamBarge 2 (now rescheduled to September 15th) will be donating 20% of the shows profits to victims of Hurricane Harvey.

For those looking to donate to local Houston charities, the page below has numerous links that can direct you to help with some of the more niche and longstanding local Houston charities, rather than one of the larger overarching organizations.

Emergency Aid Coalition

Houston PetSet Disaster Relief Fund

Interfaith Ministries for Greater Houston

Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund

Bud Light Summer Live Series is a Huge Success in Austin, TX

If you are out and about in the music scene, you definitely have seen Bud Light making their mark at venues, clubs, and festivals across the world. From custom bottles and a main stage at Lollapalooza to local partnerships with groups like Austin 360 Studio Sessions, Bud Light is making it clear that their brand is heavily involved in music today.

This summer, Bud Light kicked up their musical pursuit even more with the new event series in Austin called Bud Light Summer Live Series. They put on three separate events in the live music capital of the world at the Austin American Statesman warehouse located just south of downtown. All three events sold out in minutes, which wasn’t surprising at all when you can offer free live music, and some complimentary Bud Light beverages and swag.

For the final event of the series Bud Light brought out the Band of Heathens and Houndmouth – two well established bands who put on a great performance for all the Austin fans on a hot summer night.

We are yet to here if Bud Light will be doing this again next summer in Austin, or possibly expanding into other cities to promote to music fans in other cities like Nashville, LA, NYC.

One thing is for sure, if you can offer free drinks and free live music from great bands, you will definitely have a sold out crowd. And if you are Bud Light, you will definitely be bringing smiles to music fans faces each time you put on one of these events, so we hope to see you back in Austin again next summer!

Check out some of the sets from Band of Heathens and Houndmouth below, and make sure you follow both bands on JamFeed to get real-time updates for new music, videos, tours, and more!
