Kendrick Lamar, surprise Killers set, Halsey and Death Cab for Cutie cap off Life is Beautiful

Kendrick Lamar The third-annual Life is Beautiful Festival in downtown Las Vegas saved some of their best tricks for last. Kendrick Lamar topped off a weekend that included many memorable performances. Perhaps it was perfectly fitting that Kendrick — perhaps the hottest thing in rap today — would close out a festival that is clearly […]

Duran Duran, Metric, Clean bandit deliver top Life is Beautiful day two sets

Night Terrors of 1927 Day two of Life is Beautiful was the most jam-packed day of the downtown Las Vegas festival schedule-wise. It makes sense. People that drove in from LA or flew in from elsewhere get to enjoy a full day’s worth of music whereas the other two days are sometimes eaten up by […]

Stevie Wonder, Hozier, Thievery Corporation and more mesmerize day one at Life is Beautiful

Photo via Life Is Beautiful Life is Beautiful was genius to book Stevie Wonder. The downtown Las Vegas festival — now in its third year — kicked off the first day of their three-day festival with the first legacy headliner they’ve ever booked. It’s those types of acts that will make it stand out and […]

The Killers, Grace Potter, Ben Harper and more close inaugural KAABOO Del Mar with a bang

The Killers The final day of the inaugural KAABOO Del Mar brought its largest crowd of the weekend as it was topped by a performance from The Killers, one of the biggest American rock bands out there today. Brandon Flowers has been in heavy support of his solo record, with very few dates in the […]

Zac Brown Band, Counting Crows, Spoon, The Roots highlight wide array of musical offerings at KAABOO Day 2

Day two of KAABOO Del Mar featured a diverse string of musical acts, from rock to hip-hop to electronic. One of the interesting things about this festival is how little of the latter two genres it offers. Rodrigo y Gabriela made magic on the main stage with their Spanish guitars, blending flamenco with rock seamlessly. […]

No Doubt, Snoop Dogg, Foster The People highlight day one of inaugural Kaaboo Music Fest

The Revivalists Against the backdrop of a uniquely picturesque Californian landscape–crystal blue waters along coastal cliffs on one side and sun-kissed palms on the other–KAABOO Del Mar was unveiled to fans as a proud testament to the inherent beauty of the nearby beach community. But the celebration that began Friday afternoon at the Del Mar Fairgrounds […]

Morrissey gives fans at FYF what they want, the hits

Photo by Wes Marsala Besides the kids that had camped out at the Main stage all day to see Morrissey, the rest of FYF Fest had a mass exodus from D’Angelo and Death Grips to get to there. As expected it was crowded but, people were taking up relaxing havens on benches, against walls or […]

D’Angelo & The Vanguard bring Sunday mass to FYF Fest

Taking the stage in a long coat and a white hat sitting slightly sideways on his head and a guitar that was glittering with embellishments, D’Angelo made his entrance at FYF. Backed by an absolutely incredible band and set of singers, it was clear from the first note that this was The Church of Music and D’Angelo […]

FKA Twigs dishes a plate of hot vulnerability and strength to close out FYF

Photo by Jazz Shademan Arriving at the stage for FKA Twigs you could see that everyone was tired and maybe a little weary from the jam packed two-day fest. Most were sitting waiting for the last act of FYF to take the stage. When the lights drew down completely dark and a hushed airy voice […]

Unknown Mortal Orchestra infuse fans with energy at FYF

Cutting early from the FYF Arena stage we crossed over to the Lawn stage to catch at least a few songs from the experimental and always fantastic Unknown Mortal Orchestra. Everyone there were definitely UMO fans, giving out a cheer the second the band came on the stage. With the heat still strong against our […]
