TOP NEWS STORIES THIS WEEK
Coachella Announces it’s Lineup for 2019
Coachella is one of the largest and most culturally relevant music festivals in the world. Attracting 250,000 people across 2 weekends, featuring hundreds of artists across 7 tents and stages, showcasing some of the largest global artists of the year. It has managed to keep itself at the top of relevancy in its 19+ years due to its constant evolution and maintaining a culturally aware lineup.
Their inclusion of EDM artists exemplifies this. From back in 2006 when Daft Punk played a legendary headlining set, even to now. The Coachella 2019 lineup includes sets from heavy hitters such as: Zedd, Bassnectar, Dillon Francis, DJ Snake, NGHTMRE, Diplo, Anna Lunoe, Jauz, Kayzo, Ookay, Jon Hopkins, Aphex Twin, RÜFÜS DU SOL, Gorgon City, Kaytranada, CHVRCHES + more.
Alison Wonderland Graces Vogue Czechoslovakia
Alison Wonderland closed out 2018 with a fashion industry crossover that left us all swooning. The Australian DJ/producer participated in a shoot with Vogue Czechoslovakia. “I never thought someone like me would be shot for Vogue but here I am for Vogue Czechoslovakia in a lake & it was magical,” she wrote in an Instagram post.
Flume Promises New Music in 2019
It’s been nearly 3 years since Flume released his last album, critically acclaimed Skin. The Sydney born artist posted “Cheers 2018” whilst in Brisbane, adding, “Next year I’ll be back in your life, I promise.” I think we can safely speak for everyone when we say we are incredibly excited!
Even in just the short time Flume has been away, the music landscape has changed a lot. At the same time, there’s a lot of pressure on Flume to be innovative in ways that no one else has been. It’s a lot of responsibility to place on an individual, but we’re confident he will rise to the occasion.
Skrillex Debuts New Material at Contact Festival
One of the most influential artists in modern-day dance music, Skrillex, played a brand-new future bass track at Contact Festival over New Years Eve Weekend. Luckily for us, an attendee recorded the entire moment and shared it for the world to enjoy.
In the clip, Skrillex engages with the NYE crowd before turning down the house lights in order to have the venue illuminated by fans’ cell phones. Moore then cuts into the new track mixed with the vocals from his remix of Benny Benassi’s “Cinema.” You can watch the performance HERE.

Because we featured Flume in our Weekly News Stories, we thought it would be appropriate to share an old Reddit post made by the man himself. It’s a reminder that you can start from humble beginnings and anyone can achieve success if you don’t stop working towards your goals. Also, who remembers MySpace?
