MUSIC FESTIVAL FASHION FIX

coachella-fashion-2

Some Music Festival’s like to have a certain theme to match the genre of music that will be played or it can be a regular festival with multiple music genres. Whether going to Bonnaroo, Lollapalooza, Made in America or the Riot Fest, take a chance on different fashion styles. Think outside the box other than a regular t-shirt and jeans, sandals and gym shoes, mix it up a bit. This current 2015 year, the new fad seems to be a bohemian look or the 90’S trend. Take a look below for a few stylish ensembles that can help inspire an idea for an fashionable 2015 Music Festival look.

Men

MUSIC FESTIVAL FASHION 7

Gentlemen, the task of shopping is always more incomplex then women. Of course no one wants to look like a dork, a douche bag or just plain ole undignified. No matter what look dope to the highest degree. Possibly you may bump into a famous music artist or the woman of your dreams.

(Lumberjack shirts, Jeans, Shirts, Denim, Sweat pants, Shorts, Vest)

Women

MUSIC FESTIVAL FASHION 9

Ladies we want to be comfortable, free to just be cute and somewhat half-naked (laughs) it’s all good because it hot outside and we want to look even hotter.

(Dresses, Cardigans, Rompers, Jeans, Jumpsuits, Shorts, Leggings, Skirts,Tees, Tanks)

Group Theme

MUSIC FESTIVAL FASHION

Nothing like friends to the End, Bro’s before….Ladies sticking together through the weather. During music festivals, groups of friends like to come up with the idea of dressing the same way. The theme could be The Nerdy crew, Best Friends Forever, The “Bro” group, The flower power look, and more!

Accessories

MUSIC FESTIVAL FASHION 11MUSIC FESTIVAL FASHION 12

Comfortable shoes

When the music hits, the audience jumps up and down, walking through grass and dirt in inevitable and someone may step on your feet. Wear the most comfortable shoes to keep from hurting your toes or gaining imperfections toward the feet area. Dr. Scholls may be necessary to insert inside the shoe area for comfort. Remember there will be alot of standing and walking around for hours throughout the event.

(Women Boots, Dr. Martens, Converse, Men Sandals, Sneakers,  Women Sandals, Slip on Vans, Gladiator sandals)

Still not sure of what to wear? Try Pinterest for more ideas. Find your favorite local stores in the mall or  shop online to select clothing items that are unique and affordable for the special Festival look! Good luck 😉✌

6 WAYS TO SURVIVE MUSIC FESTIVALS

SURVIVE MUSIC FEST

In the words of one of the greatest musicians of all time “Music is my Religion” – Jimi Hendrix.

All over the world people come together to celebrate music in harmony. The tickets may cost an arm and a leg (pricey) but the experience is significant. Along with Fun, Food, Music, Selfies and fashion, Music Festival’s can also have a downside if a game plan is not in effect beforehand. Take a look at these 6 unforgettable tips that can help sustain an fantastic experience!

6. Stay Hydrated

MUSIC FESTIVALS

The Food and drinks are not cheap, bring cash and make sure to have plenty of bottles of water packed. Also bringing a personal insulated water bottle is not a bad idea either, that way refilling your own personal bottle will not be a problem.

5. Porter potties? or Bush?

MUSIC FESTIVAL 3

After drinking all of that water and eating food, it has to come out sometime during the festival. Where should I go?? Let’s face it the world is filled with people who don’t care vs. germ-a-phobes. The nearest stores also claim they have a no public washroom policy. What to do? Be prepared to use the porter potty or find yourself a bush as my friend Bria Douglas says. A personal roll of toilet paper may be needed as well.

4. Prepare for the weather

MUSIC FESTIVALS 4

When it rain it pours, the weather man said it would be a nice hot summer day but as always…. he predicted wrong once again. Especially here in Chicago, never underestimate the weather change at the last minute. Be prepared to bring an umbrealla, poncho, light jacket and wear closed toe shoes.

3. Crowd Etiquette

MUSIC FESTIVAL 6

So the guy that’s standing in front of you just had to lift his heavy girlfriend on his shoulders so she can see David Guetta better for her SnapChat. Excuse me? Can you not right now? If this happens politely tap your comrade and ask if they can please get down or plan B: Try to move to another tight spot or plan C: Kick his ass (your choice)

2. Plan and pack

MUSIC FESTIVALS 5

Always have a portable phone charger, sun screen, hat and sunglasses and whatever else necessities that is needed while out in the music battlefield.

1. Be safe and Have FUN

Become open minded it’s a music festival, not an execution. Chill with the homies, best friend or girlfriend/boyfriend. Try to even make new associates. Festivals are sometimes presented with a theme and commonly held outdoors with other attractions such as food and merchandise vending, performance art and social activities. So relax and Enjoy it! For more information on ALL the 2015 festivals click Here  and for all my Chicago peoples click this link Here for all Chicago Festivals.

Even I will be turning up at Lollapalooza on August 1st, Hope to see you all there 😜

A New Era of Golden Features

Golden Features comes out of the silence to present us with long awaited present, some new gold. It has been about a year since we last heard some original Golden Features music, when he released his self titled EP. But at long last, Baxter it got the blood pumpin and the head bobbin. It starts with an eerie intro to back your excitement, unraveling into vocals ringing sweet words into your ears. Finally with the beat of the drum, a final climactic push to deliver that raw golden bass. A dedication to someone significant it holds great meaning to the artist himself, you can hear the passion in the music. A perfect introduction to his upcoming  XXIV EP.

Now XXIV is not here yet, but it is coming, a new wave of Golden Features music. But we got a good taste of it and plenty of Golden to listen to while we wait. Aside from original mixes he has released a couple of remixes to fill our ears. Some tunes to put on repeat, his remix of No Fun by the Presets and the more recent Years of War by Porter Robinson. Done to perfection with his signature deep metallic basslines, a sound so addicting. Lets just hope he gives us another track to preview the new EP. We just cannot get enough!

eekkoo

eekkoo

You got to hand it over to the choice artist pics of deadmau5. You will find some worth while artists listening to mau5trap on soundcloud. Eekkoo in particular had the honor of having Joel Zimmerman track him down on soundcloud. Since then eekkoo, aka Jon Doyan, has been releasing his master pieces of sound through mau5trap label.

It was not only style and sound that caught deadmau5 either. Rather it was also eekkoo’s immense knowledge of sound design. His experience cover producing, mixing and mastering his own tracks to teaching a production class in Montreal after years of self and professional study. Which he says helps him keep up to date with new technology. A definite advantage for his creative outlet among many. Doyan has also revealed to Thump.vice that he enjoys songwriting on the side of mixing and producing.

Further expressing his creative side he challenges himself to learn everyday with different projects. Since eekkoo favors techno vibes in his production he decided to take a spin on the original with his own dark and mellow sounds. Warren Avenue, one of his recent releases takes on a sound from the one of the birthplaces of techno house music; Detroit. In fact the track is named after a city street from there. Grab it for free on his soundcloud!

Eekkoo has also released an unnofficial remix of Jamie xx‘s song Loud Places. Turning his deep house style into a journey of uplifting sounds. Eekkoo, with this talent, may very well soon be a well known name around music community. With already good support and excellent playlist it seems likely.

SINGER/SONGWRITER JESSIE WARE

JESSIEE WARE

A powerful voice that gives chills, expressive songs and a fashion beauty. Jessie Ware always appears on stage in a chic wardrobe ready to sing her heart out. Ware’s music videos are full of nature, people and visual images that usually illustrate the ballad that is being performed. This unique musician is from London, England. She debuted her album Devotion in 2012 and her latest album Tough Love in 2014.

“Say you Love” me was written by Ware and co-written with Ed Sheeran. This love song depicts that saying these four words mean more than just a hug, and time. Love is an highly dynamic word. When someone is in love, thinking about the other person and wanting to be with them all the time can be tough, because without them life would feel incomplete. Ware sings, ‘Cause I don’t wanna fall in love, If you don’t wanna try, and It sucks when a person falls in love with someone, and the other person is unsure about their feelings towards the whole relationship.

https://soundcloud.com/jessieware/jessie-ware-kind-ofsometimesmaybe-j-cole-remix

Jessie’s genres are Electronic, R&B and Tropical. Even though she is a fresh face to the music scene, she has caught the eye of many other artist, such as rap/hip-hop artist J. Cole who jumped on this track “Kind of…sometimes…maybe” with a remix. At the beginning it gets freaky 😝 with Cole’s lyrics then incorporates Jessie’s sensual soft voice for an even more seductive tone.

What’s Next for Jessie Ware

JESSIE WARE 2

Jessie Ware is currently on tour in the United Kingdom for the remainder of the 2015 spring and summertime. Don’t feel down though, she does come to the U.S. very often to tour, perform on daytime television shows and collaborate with other famous artist like Miguel, Nicki Minaj and more.

Summer Never Ends for Jack LNDN

jacklndn2

The super talented Jack LNDN from, you guessed it; London, has just released a couple of remixes, among a series of remixes on his soundcloud. This one will have you hooked. LNDN takes an already catchy pop song by James Hersey, whos voice works perfectly with Jacks chords and jazzy disco house vibes, and turns it into a groovy dance mix. But this remix is not the only one to receive so much attention! Even if you have not heard of Jack LNDN you have most likely heard his work.

LNDN made some noise remixing the award winning track Rather Be by the Clean Bandits. That track alone has over one hundred and seventy thousand views on soundcloud! Third most views next to his track on Aeterna, off of his Drop Out EP and his amazing Remix of Get Lucky by Daft Punk. But it was his Rather Be remix that had the honor of being featured on Electric Forest Music Festivals 2015 trailer.

Now Jack is getting ready to hit up a series of cities for a North American tour this summer starting May 4th. You can expect a lot of new tunes from his new EP Summer Never Ends on most of these live shows. And live shows is what we will expect to see from Jack in the near future. Recently speaking with Throwed Magazine about his touring and new music, Jack mentioned he is “currently developing a live show where I’m trying to bring in some vocals and live vocoder stuff“. He also spoke up playing with the ideas of using keyboards or even drum pads for live performance. Which would be quite spectacular, since he has a background in classical music growing up!

While talking to Throwed as well he had noted an ambition that he was his fans to know about. Aside from working on funky deep house tunes Jack LNDN has also found a passion in making hip hop beats. “There’s certain hip hop that you can listen to in any mood. Since then I’ve been doing beats with people“. This ambition has already got LNDN to do a track on Lupe Fiasco‘s new album, and possibly an EP with him lined up for the future. Judging by the sound of his new deep house master piece remix of Snoop Dogg‘s Peaches N’ Cream, I will say I trust LNDN’s style of hip hop and I cannot wait to hear it what he has got!

In the interview he also talked about his creative process of making a song. He said “I’ll sit down at the piano and work something out that I like.  It usually always begins around chords because thats what I know, thats what I was brought up on“. Listening to his new tracks, which you can find for free on his soundcloud easier than you can find a colorful picture of him, you can hear his professional keyboard skills work wonders for your ears. The rhythm flowing so perfectly with ambient harmonies and melodies, creating wonderful and funky dance tracks. You can hear tracks off his new Summer Never Ends EP on his soundcloud where he just released his final installment Fooled Around.

ANGUS & JULIA STONE

Angus and Julia Stone No this is not an ad from a popular fashion store in the mall, my friends this is a picture of Angus & Julia Stone. This brother and sister duo are from the land down under; Sydney, Australia. The sibling act formed in 2006 and their genres consist of Folk, Indie pop, acoustic music. They both are singer and songwriters that play the guitar and perform together on stage. Not only are they a well balanced team, they still have their own separate music projects going on as well. [youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nV50lmpVk1E] What a cool party and video. Julia & Angus are performing at a house party with lights flickering, liquor,  people making out and dancing. The normal. “A Heartbreak” a rock/folk song with a soft rhythm guitar and drums is easy to vibe too in a small intimate setting. It opens up about a young woman who went from a “good girl” to a “bad girl” when she starts to hang out with offbeat people in which she starts to see the world around her in a different aspect. “Big Jet Plane” has a chill tempo like riding in a car on a rainy day thinking about someone special. With violins and a soft beat this definitely is an unwind song with a message. As it is expressed in the opening lines “She said ‘hello mister, please to meet ya’; I wanna hold her, I wanna kiss her; She smelled of daisies, she smelled of daisies; She drive me crazy, she drive me crazy” Meeting someone out the blue for the first time can be a tense. If the attraction is real it creates the feeling of infatuation so trust me for future advice take a chance don’t miss an opportunity talk to that person. Let this song give all people motivation.

What’s up Next for Angus & Julia Stone 

ANGUS AND JULIA 4

Angus & Julia have debuted three albums, in 2007 “A Book Like This”, in 2010 “Down This Way”, and their newest release “Angus & Julia Stone” (self-titled) was released in August 2014.
