From Kendrick Lamar to Slayer, this year is definitely one of the best.
Bonnaroo is in full swing and while we've seen some pretty impressive acts so far, the musical forecast shows things are not going to get quieter anytime soon. One of America's biggest and most diverse summer events, fans flock in their thousands to Tennessee this weekend to welcome some of the world's top entertainers.
Friday's line-up is a particularly mixed bag; where you've got music veterans the likes of 80s new wave legends Tears For Fears and 70s R&B band Earth Wind & Fire, you also got newer names such as LA duo Mini Mansions, who recently won acclaim for their second album 'The Great Pretenders', and Brit award winning UK chart toppers Royal Blood. Making some noise on the main What Stage throughout though are house producer Deadmau5, 'To Pimp a Butterfly' rapper Kendrick Lamar and roots rock collective Alabama Shakes.

Tyler Joseph and Josh Dun are celebrating their fourth album reaching the top spot, following the slow-burning success of its predecessor 'Vessel'.
Indie pop duo Twenty One Pilots are celebrating their first ever US Number 1 album, after the group’s second major label record Blurryface entered at the top of the Billboard 200. It sold 146,000 copies in the week ending May 24th, according to Nielsen SoundScan.
Of that figure, a solid 134,000 were direct album sales, a healthy indication of the recent resurgence in physical music purchasing. Blurryface is Tyler Joseph and Josh Dun’s fourth album in total, following their Fueled By Ramen debut Vessel back in 2013.

It looks like it's going to be an epic weekend with Big Guava 2014's quality line-up.
Arguably what could be Florida's most fun-packed 3-day event of the year, Big Guava Music Festival makes its debut today (May 2nd 2014) with an impressive line-up headlined by Outkast, Vampire Weekend and Foster The People.
There's a lot of things we like about Florida, and we reckon Big Guava's inaugural event will definitely be one of them. Set against the glorious city backdrop of Tampa, this festival is bound to be the highlight of your year as it arrives at the Florida State Fairgrounds and Mid-Florida Credit Union Amphitheatre. As well as 40 awesome bands on 4 different stages, you got your craft beers, your diverse food trucks and your epic fairground rides (which are free, by the way) that will keep you busy in between performances from a line-up that prides itself on its quality over quantity. Having said that, we still think you're going to be spoilt for choice with this lot.
Just another reason to look forward to Sunday night.
Eminem and Rihanna have signed on to perform at the MTV Movie Awards this year, MTV has just announced. They will step out on stage together to perform their chart-topping hit The Monster at Sunday’s event, before embarking on their summer tour together. This will be their first live performance of the Marshall Mathers LP 2 single. On its release, the album reached No. 1 on the Billboard chart.
Rihanna will join Eminem onstage for the first time this Sunday.
The duo join previously announced performers Twenty One Pilots with their new single Car Radio and Ellie Goulding and Zedd, who will join forces to perform Beating Heart and Find You. The full list of performers is yet to be revealed.

They might be fairly new to the international music scene, but Twenty One Pilots already have their own way of doing things.
Twenty One Pilots are an Ohio-born duo, boasting a light indie/electronic sound and clever lyrics. It’s no surprise then that the band (Tyler Joseph and Josh Dun), which was only formed in 2009 has already been signed by Fueled by Ramen. The duo are enjoying considerable success over the pond with their debut full-length record Vessel, but this week they were playing exclusively for the enthusiastic audience at Leeds Festival – and they even found some time to talk to ContactMusic about the experience.
Fresh off their US tour, the duo still have a packed year ahead of them.
Josh Dun had nothing but good memories of the experience to share: “It was our first time ever at Leeds Festival and we were just talking about how, gosh, we’ve both, separately and together, watched so many videos online of performances at Leeds and we’ve never even been here before in our lives.” “To get to play was a good experience for us.”
