After all the hysterical hype, the 15th annual desert festival finally comes to a bittersweet end. Nearly 180,000 crazed art and music fans flocked to this year’s Coachella Festival in Indio, California, with huge expectations of greatness. With astonishing art installations everywhere and the variety of world renown artists performing every second of the day, there’s no wonder why people drop hundreds, if not, thousands of dollars in preparation for this majestic cultural experience. We already cannot wait to see what 2015 will bring for our new generation of adventure-seekers.
Coachella has been a catalyst for reuniting musical groups in the past and is most definitely continuing to do so for our listening pleasure. Celebrating 20 years of their unique sound, Outkast launched their highly-anticipated tour on April 11th, headlining this festival and 40 more thereafter, throughout Spring and Summer around the world.
“It’s truly an honor to celebrate 20 years and still be free to do music the way we choose…Don’t just think outside the box, know that there is no box. I’m looking forward to rocking the stage with my Bro Ski and to all the fans – stank you smelly much, this is for y’all!” – Big Boi

This infamous festival also features various up-and-coming artists, giving them the opportunity for amazing exposure. Rising progressive music producers, The Glitch Mob, hands down rocked the Sahara stage from top to bottom, beginning to end. Their extraordinary sound pulsed through the dense sea of bobbing heads and hands. One of our favorite artists at Coachella 2014, definitely.

In the pursuit of happiness, Coachella attendees flew to the outdoor stage to see Kid Cudi perform. Because he has stopped hanging out with “Mary-Jane,” rumor has it that his music just isn’t the same. We beg to differ. He threw it down with new songs, old hits, and even brought surprise guest MGMT to feature in his set. Long live Mr. Solo Dolo!

A$AP Ferg had the whole crowd chanting “Shabba, Shabba!” No doubt the crowd was hyped up for this midday afternoon performance at the Outdoor Stage. Ferg had help from A$AP Rocky where he debuted a new untitled song. But wait, it didn’t end there. The A$AP Mob took stage with Skrillex to perform Wild For The Night.
The crowd was definitely happy and throwing up their hands for Pharrell Williams, who recently did a collaboration with the timeless French duo Daft Punk. Like every year, rumor had it that Daft Punk was definitely going to appear on stage with Pharrell. However, we didn’t see Daft Punk, but he did not disappoint with his special guest appearances. Over the two weekends, the cameos included: Snoop Dogg, Diplo, Gwen Stefani, Busta Rhymes, Usher, T.I., Jay Z, and The Jabbawockeez. That’s a line-up on its own!

If you haven’t heard of the musically talented Jhene Aiko, you definitely will hear of her in the very near future. She gained massive attention with her Sailing Souls mix tape in 2011, where she collaborated with Miguel, Drake and Kanye West. “I love me, I love me enough for the both of us…” As soon as Jhene began singing that catchy hook, the huge festival cameras came out to play. The crowd was on their toes in anticipation that Drizzy Drake would walk on stage to perform the rest of the song with her. Then a smooth, familiar voice announces, “This is my first time at Coachella by the way.” The sea of fans screamed and cheered in excitement. What an amazing surprise! It won’t be long until we see Drake’s name on the line up bill in the next year or two. Jhene also brought out Childish Gambino and Kurupt for her performance.
The Coachella Art and Musical Festival of 2014 has dwindled down to the end. With all the craze and hype buzzing around the great music and mind-blowing art installations, it’s hard to believe it’s all over – back on that daily grind. Until next year Indio! Thank you!

Toronto may be frozen but it is definitely coming with the heat
Truth be told, Drake isn’t the only one with “Trust Issues”. Fellow Toronto native The Weeknd comes clean about his own struggles on his personal rendition of Drizzy’s latest. The Weeknd’s sophomore mixtape, Thursday is coming soon! OVOXO!
You’ve probably heard the original from Drake and now The Weeknd’s version. Who killed this track?
Hailing from our not so distant relatives up north in Toronto is The Weeknd.
Less than two months ago, few of us had ever heard of the Weeknd. Then, as soon as the creepy R&B tracks from this free mixtape began to circulate, the hype engine revved up. There was the Drake cosign, the album art that looked like Spiritualized crossed with Tumblr art-porn, the missing vowel, the stylish samples, and the project’s creators hiding in the shadows. You can’t buy buzz like this, and the Weeknd’s quick rise to Internet fame, both in indie circles and in parts of the mainstream, raised fascinating questions about the blurrier-than-ever lines between those two audiences and the underground’s newfound embrace of R&B
