The concept of Holy Ship! is making a very drastic change. The beloved festival held annually on a 4 day cruise ship experience will be anchoring its usual festival experience and will be hosted on land at an all inclusive resort at the Hard Rock in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic.
Holy Ship! Wrecked brings fans everything they have come to know and love aboard Holy Ship! plus so much more. Taking place at the beautiful all-inclusive and luxurious Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic, the latest edition of the event takes place with an unmatched resort experience and some of the world’s most in-demand house, bass and techno artists performing throughout the tropical setting.
Holy Ship! Wrecked will take over the entire Punta Cana resort, producing a myriad of stages and spaces across this singular property. There will be beach parties and pool parties every day, you will have twelve pools to choose from, plus four swim-up bars, a lazy river, and an expansive palm-lined beach.
“A Message to the Community from Holy Ship HQ:
Over the last eight years and thirteen sailings, you have shown that Shipfam can’t be contained to a boat. Shipfam exists in the towns and cities where you live, at the shows and festivals where you gather, and in the communities you’ve created across the globe. Now we get to take over an all-inclusive resort in another part of the world while experiencing the best music, community, vibes, beaches and shenanigans. Together.
When we launched Holy Ship it was the first of its kind. We’ve seen what works and what doesn’t and we’ve applied that knowledge to bring you something new. We all know the boat is magic – and we’re not ruling out returning to the high seas down the road. In the meantime, we know that Holy Ship! Wrecked will give you everything the boat did and so much more. After all, our time on the island was never enough and you won’t know how much you love something until you experience it for yourself …
We may be shipwrecked, but this new venue is sure to blow your mind. Let’s spread the Shipfam spirit and show them how to party on land in 2020!”
Pre-bookings will begin on May 3rd.

Some festivals you prepare for the lineup announcement because you know the date and time it is coming (ACL tomorrow, anyone?). Others, like Coachella, you make a guess of when it might drop and get winded when it happens. And still, others take you by surprise.
This morning, Real Street Festival was announced by Los Angeles hip-hop radio station, Real 92.3. The festival is going to take place at the Honda Center Grounds in Anaheim, California on August 10th and 11th, boasting itself as the largest music event to come to Orange County.
The lineup is stacked with A$AP Rocky, Future, and Migos headlining. Joining them are names like Big Sean, 2 Chainz, and Miguel. There will be three stages, but the festival will not be only about music. Real Fest will celebrate street art and lifestyle as well.
In addition to the musical acts in the festival, Big Boy’s Neighborhood Car Show will be going on in the middle of the festival inside the Honda Center. Plus, there will be mural walls and live art as well.
This massive festival will be the largest music event to ever come to Orange County. The Honda Center will be transformed into a hip-hop spectacular, celebrating music, street art, and lifestyle.

A star-studded concert set for the 50th anniversary of the original Woodstock festival has been canceled, according to a principal investor.
A spokesperson for Japanese advertising company Dentsu, which planned to finance the show, said they did not believe the production could be “executed as an event worthy of the Woodstock brand name,” according to Rolling Stone. Also mentioned was concern about ensuring the health and safety of attendees and performers.
“As a result and after careful consideration, Dentsu Aegis Network’s Amplifi Live, a partner of Woodstock 50, has decided to cancel the festival,” the company stated. “As difficult as it is, we believe this is the most prudent decision for all parties involved.”
Tickets for the show were supposed to go on sale April 22 but had been delayed. The still-active website on Monday named acts including Jay-Z, Miley Cyrus, The Killers and Dead & Company for the three-day event.
Merchandise appears to still be for sale.
The festival was set to take place in Watkins Glen, NY, about 115 miles from the original Woodstock site. A different 50th anniversary concert planned at the original Bethel, NY, grounds also is planned, the Associated Press reported.

4 rappers in four minutes. That’s not something every producer gets, but when you have beats like DJ Snake you realize there’s probably a waiting list beyond that. His lates track Enzo features verses from Gucci Mane, 21 Savage, Offset, and Sheck Wes. It’s a raw and unfiltered trap, with a great cast of vocalists lending their own special verses to the beat. You’re likely to hear this one in Bass Music Sets and rowdy club hip-hop rooms alike.

Technoheads and Archer alike should have been envious of Gesaffelstein’s Coachella stage this last weekend, as the French producer employed a stage design that featured the blackest black…in the world. Called Vantablack, it is a black that is disorienting to the eye it’s so intense. The Verge reported all the details of the material’s inception, interviewing Ben Jensen, CTO of Surrey NanoSystems. “You’re used to standing in a completely dark room in the middle of the night, but you’re not used to seeing absolute blackness with a lot of light around it,” he says. “When you see that nothingness with light around it, your mind can be quite confused, and your perception of things like depth is severely challenged.” The Verge also heard first-hand accounts from the slight struggles of the people who made it. “One of our sound engineers was onstage and found himself in the monolith,” says one of the workers at the venue. “[He] became confused and lost his balance. He fell, hit the surface, and I was like, ‘Okay that’s $20,000.’” Yikes.
The video may capture the effect for some of us, but the true treat was best captured by the real eyeballs smack in front of it. Let’s hope we can see this stage set up in the wild on a potential tour stop…because it’s really sad to only spend 20 grand for one show(technically two).

According to a website dealing with the diagnosis and treatment of herpes, some 250 people have applied to them during the first two days of the music festival.
This year’s annual Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival has apparently been marred by an unpleasant development as a spike of herpes was observed among the people in the communities located near the event, TMZ reports.
According to the media outlet, an online diagnosis and treatment website for this particular sexually transmitted disease, HerpAlert, has reported “a massive surge in folks seeking prescriptions for herpes since Day 1 at Coachella”, with some 1,105 cases being reported in Indio, Palm Desert and Coachella Valley, as well as in L.A., Orange and San Diego counties “where most of the concertgoers live”.
As HerpAlert explained, they usually handle about 12 cases per day in southern California but ended up servicing about 250 patients during the first two days of Coachella alone.
“Bottom line… what happens in Coachella might stay with you. For life”, the media outlet warned.
HerpAlert works off anonymous data submitted (automatically) by doctor’s when they filed prescriptions to pharmacies for herpes-related meds/ailments. According to their findings, 1,105 cases were reported as of Day One of Coachella 2019, in the Indio, Palm Desert, and the surrounding region. To put that in perspective, HerpAlert says the area usually handles around 12 cases per day on average. When the Oscars are in town, that number usually swells to 60-a-day, but as you can see: Coachella is a whole other beast.
The Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival is being held at the Empire Polo Club in Indio, California. The event features artists from many music genres, constantly hosting live music on several stages across the concert’s grounds.

Consistency is one of several traits that Melbourne producer Marcus Santoro has at his disposal, and it shines through once again in his latest single on Enhanced “Best of Me.” Santoro’s catalog contains a load of edgy instrumentals, but this release sees him tackle a vocal anthem with the help of Roan Shenoyy, a vocalist from Bangalore and a good friend of Santoro. “The idea for ‘Best Of Me’ started at the end of 2017 whilst I was still studying at Point Blank Music School,” Shenoyy says. “After working on it for some time I felt it was something special. Marcus and I have been friends for over 7 years now, he’s one of my really close friends in the industry and also a mentor to me. I sent it to him for feedback, and he loved the idea and wanted to work on it. The rest is history!”
Concocting a fresh take on a formula that’s hard to tackle, the track showcases the best in both artists’ talents. Santoro employs synths and drum patterns that can easilty liven up a set and Shenoyy’s vocal’s add new color to the abundant pallette of Dance music singers. Santoro reflects on the completion of such an ambitious project: “‘Best Of Me’ is by far one of the most mature records I’ve written to date, and one of my most emotional ones too. Roan and I spent a solid year on this one, trying to nail the music and the feeling, and with the help of a beautiful vocal we’ve done exactly that!”
You can check the track out now on Spotify and follow both artists while you’re at it!

Today, RÜFÜS DU SOL have announced their largest headlining performance yet at the iconic Los Angeles State Historic Park on Saturday, October 5 in Downtown LA. The event will take place amidst their massive world tour, continuing the band’s momentous celebration of their ‘SOLACE’ album, out now on Rose Avenue / Reprise Records. Starting today, fans can sign up here to receive an exclusive presale code. The presale begins Wednesday, May 1 at 10 AM PT, with the general public on sale beginning Friday, May 3 at 10 AM PT.
Los Angeles has become a new home for RÜFÜS DU SOL, offering a unique landscape in which the dark sonics of ‘SOLACE’ were crafted. From the creative portal of their Venice studio-home, to the shadowy underbelly of the city’s underground music scene, LA has carried the band through peaks and valleys, leaving them with a dedicated family of collaborators and supporters at their side.
After selling out three consecutive shows at LA’s Shrine Expo Hall and treating Coachella attendees to some of this year’s most talked about performances, the band now look to their roots to produce their most ambitious headlining show yet. Longtime friends of RÜFÜS and tourmates both stateside and in Australia, Bob Moses will join as support for the show, as well as the newest signees to their Rose Avenue Records imprint, Lastlings.
Presale begins Wednesday, May 1 at 10 AM PT, with presale code via losangeles.rufusdusol.com. Tickets go on sale to the general public on Friday, May 3 at 10 AM PT.

The 2019 lineup features more than 60 unique and exciting artists including Grammy Award Nominee and emerging artists. The headliners include Chance The Rapper, The Black Keys, Post Malone, Billie Eilish, Vampire Weekend, Zedd, Lil Wayne, Portugal. The Man, Rufus Du Sol and Janelle Monae.

“They’re coming back to a festival that’s gone from 30,000 [attendees per day] to more than 50,000,” says Craig Nyman, LIB’s head of music and live performances. “It was two days the first year and we probably had 40 acts. Now we’ve grown to a three-day festival with 75-plus artists, an ideas and comedy program and art murals that are Downtown all year. It’s incredible to think about what’s happened in six years, and I think it will be fun to have these artists come back and see that growth.”
