Creamfields 2015 - Preview

It's that time of the year again. Bank Holiday weekend in August. The time of the summer when Ibiza crash lands just outside Liverpool all because of a three-day weekender. We are of course talking about the UK's most sought after dance festival - Creamfields.

Creamfields 2015 - Preview

With Global Gathering taking a year sabbatical from the festival calendar, Creamfields is now unequivocally the biggest and greatest electronic line up in the isles, boasting huge headline acts over the three-day festival, amalgamating new acts such as David Zowie, all the way through to the veterans like Fatboy Slim, Pete Tong, Tiesto and Paul Van Dyke.

With more festival exclusives than anyone else, whilst impulsively pumping much money into production and expansion, the festival has now firmly cemented itself as the go to premiere electronic-music festival, and will undoubtedly go off with more pyrotechnics and fireworks than a Chinese New Year.

10 Acts You Had No Idea Were Playing Glastonbury

Glastonbury Festival Sophie Ellis-Bextor Speech Debelle Fatboy Slim Keith Allen Blondie Yoko Ono The Brian Jonestown Massacre MGMT

Part of Glastonbury’s enduring reputation is its propensity for composing a line-up that is extensive that a wealth of acts will pass by unnoticed. We’ve sieved through the thousands of acts who will be making the trip to Worthy Farm to highlight ten acts whose inclusion in the festival bill may surprise many. Sifting through the lower rungs of the bill uncovers a slew of rising stars and forgotten flames, those who are on the ascension to the upper levels of cultural recognition as well as those whose days of glory are far behind them.

Beyond the endless stretch of humans eyeing up the pyramid stage with binoculars are copious tents and smaller stages which host a myriad of curiosities, from fading pop stars regurgitating their hit songs for the umpteenth time to all manner of odd theatrics, spoken word performances, comedians, circus performances and Happy Monday’s hype-man Bez, who has this year been granted his very own ‘Acid House’ stage. Here then, are ten acts who to varying degrees will surprise festival goers with their very presence at the culturally sacred Somerset site:

Coachella Festival is nearly here, bringing with it one hell of a weekend chock full of great food, exciting entertainment and, most importantly, amazing music.

Arguably California's most eagerly anticipated event of the year, Coachella settles at the Empire Polo Club in Indio once again for the fifteenth year running between April 11th and 13th on the first weekend and April 18th and 20th on the second. It's not unheard of that a music festival was so good they had to hold it twice, but as of 2012 it has become a no-brainer for Coachella. In a nutshell, it is basically a big playground for grown-ups - though of course it is a family friendly event - featuring activities such as the 3 Legged Race, the Beauty Bar, the art studios, dodgeball and the almighty Pie Eating Contest, all while you're munching on a variety of cuisine from around the state and rocking out to some of the best bands you will ever hear.

Angelina Jolie And Meatloaf? Celebrity Music Video Cameos

Lady GaGa Aerosmith Meatloaf Angelina Jolie Courteney Cox Liv Tyler Fatboy Slim Christopher Walken

We all know that Lady GaGa loves to shock, so no one was actually that surprised to see the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills make a cameo appearance in her new ‘ARTPOP’ music video for ‘G.U.Y.’ Gaga isn’t the only musician to make use of celebrities in her music videos, although she is certainly the first to dress up reality TV stars as an ancient Greek chorus. The video for ‘G.U.Y.’ sees Lisa Vanderpump playing the tambourine, while Kim and Kyle Richards play guitars, Carlton Gebbia strums the harp with Yolanda Foster on the cello.  No one can call Gaga unoriginal!

Who remembers Courteney Cox’s cameo appearance in Bruce Springsteen’s 1984 video for “Dancing in the Dark”? We don't blame you if you can't, it was quite a long time ago and the Friends star herself was only 20 years old. The video sees The Boss pluck Cox from the crowd to bring her up on stage to dance with him.

Rihanna Makes UK Chart History As Eminem Collaboration Storms To The No. 1 Spot

Rihanna Elvis Presley Beatles Lorde One Republic Fatboy Slim One Direction

Rihanna made chart history this weekend when her latest collaborative effort with rapper Eminem entered the chart at number one, meaning she's hit the top spot for seven years running, at some point or another. The feat has only ever been matched by The Beatles and Elvis Presley and has etched her into the history books alongside those two recording greats.

'The Monster' - her second number one collaboration with Eminem following their massively successful link up on 2010's 'Love the Way you Lie' - continues a run of form that began in 2007 with 'Umbrella' and it looks as though she could even break the eight year mark.

Rihanna has now had 8 number one singles over a period of 7 consecutive calendar years. But let's put that into perspective: alongside her fellow 'Club 7' record breakers, The Beatles had 17 number one singles in the same period, more than double that of Ri-Ri. She's got a long way to go.

Chicago's Inaugural Electric Daisy Carnival Gives Festival Goers A Weekend To Remember

Calvin Harris Tiesto Dj Fresh Fatboy Slim Pete Tong

Despite already being a mainstay in the Las Vegas and Orlando music line-up, the Electric Daisy Festival has never ventured to the colder climates of up north, that is until this weekend when the EDM showcase took the Chicagoland Speedway by storm. The (moderately) colder temperatures failed to put off any festival goers at the travelling festival's first ever stop in Chicago.

Having already passed through New York with similar success earlier this month (May 17 - 18), the touring EDM showcase will hit up Vegas for the June 21 - 23 weekend, before heading out to Puerto Rico (September 13 - 14) and Orlando (November 8 - 9) later in the year. The festival will also be skipping borders as it moves to London for a one-day event on July 20, bringing all the electro-madness with it for the one off event. Festival goers this weekend were treated to such EDM mainstays as Calvin Harris, Dj Fresh, Fatboy Slim, Pete Tong, Araabmuzik, La Roux, Tiesto and A-Track as well as a smorgasbord of other quality electronic music acts. As for the weather, although the heavens remained closed the temperature was still a far cry from the blistering Nevada desert heats, but this was a factor some say made the festival all the better.

EDC faithful DJ Gareth Emery, who performed in Chicago and New York and will be following the festival to Las Vegas, told USA Today, "When the weather is bad, the festivals can actually be better because people kind of huddle up together. It's probably one of the times where you want to be down in the middle. You don't want to be in the VIP; you get cold."

Reliably Unusual: David Byrne's Imelda Marcos Musical A Hit With The Critics

David Byrne Fatboy Slim Imelda Marcos

David Byrne is a man known for pushing boundaries. Be it the stretching of the outer limits of art-pop, with Talking Heads, or, indeed, prodding at the concept of comfortable suit design (remember that over-sized suit he wore… you know the one), he’s never settled for the obvious choices. His latest venture – a collaborative effort with Norman Cook / Fatboy Slim, is no different.

Here Lies Love, at the Public Theater in New York is a beguiling theatrical and musical creation, which tells the life story of Ferdinand and Imelda Marcos and does so via the medium of dance music, demanding high levels of audience participation as it goes. The New York Times describes the unusual theatrical staging with a sense of awe, playing tribute to “the hardest working tech crew in town” for creating a staging in which “all the world’s a dance floor and all the men and women merely disco rats.” Theater ushers in neon pink jumpsuits “herd” the audience into place at the sets change and reconfigure and attendees are expected to keep dancing throughout. “You’ll be asked to vote for Marcos, too,” NYT advises. “And as folks tend to do when caught up in the fever of a crowd, you’ll probably find yourself smiling and nodding assent.”

Bloomberg were equally full of praise for the show, describing it as “the most engaging and provocative new musical of the season.” It looks as though Byrne has successfully pushed that envelope, once again.
