2017 Governors Ball Lineup Revealed


The “official” start to the Summer is really Memorial Day weekend, but nothing says Summer’s here in New York City than the annual Governor’s Ball Music Festival.

This year, the event takes place from June 2nd – 4th at the usual spot, which is Randalls Island Park. Upon a quick glimpse at the lineup, I have to say that this year’s show is EXTREMELY Hip-Hop heavy, which is a great thing, as it’s no secret that we at Concert Daily love our R&B and Hip-Hop music.

Chance The Rapper along with Childish Gambino are two of the star headliners. Rock band Tool will play their first show in the NYC area in over a decade! If you’re a true Tool fan, you won’t want to miss this.

Tickets to Governors Ball go on sale Friday, January 6th at noon at govball.com.


2016 Budweiser Made In America Lineup Revealed


Ok, so it’s no secret that one of the biggest festivals in the United States used to officially “close out the summer” is the JayZ curated Made In America. 

The details about the show were pretty mum, aside from the dates. Set for Labor Day weekend, which translates to September 3-4, we now know who the performing acts are. It’s been announced that the self-proclaimed “bad gal” Rihanna and Coldplay will headline the two day festival.

Joining those two, will be a host of other top-billing acts, such as Collegrove (who is the combination of 2 Chainz and Lil Wayne), Chance The Rapper, Bryson Tiller, DJ Khaled, Travi$ Scott, Tory Lanez, Desiigner and many more.

If you want tickets, they are being sold in two different levels. The first is your standard general admission two-day pass that merely gets you into the weekend worth of concerts. The other is a VIP ultimate experience pass, though it is not clear at this time what extra access that buys you.

Tidal subscribers will get first dibs as a presale exclusively on the music streaming site starts Wednesday at 10 a.m. General admission tickets are being sold on Ticketmaster starting Monday, June 27.

Power 106 Grabs Big Sean, YG & Chance The Rapper For PowerHouse 2016


After months of having to deal with what seemed like an extended, and unwanted Winter season, we are getting a few weeks of Spring before we flip over to the Summer months.

It’s that time again to get ready for the Hip Hop party of the summer! No Summer is set on the West Coast without the footprint of the annual PowerHouse concert.

Los Angeles radio station Power 106 has leaked the first set of performers to take the stage at the #PowerhouseLA on June 3rd at the Honda Center in Anaheim, CA. Every year we get a fully packed show, and this year will be no different.

For a powerful lineup, we’ll see Big Sean, Chance The Rapper, YG, Yo Gotti and the return of Fat Joe and Remy Ma. Of course these aren’t the only performers who will kill the stage that night, we’ll have to wait and see what else is up the sleeve of the radio execs because second artist announcement is coming April 25 and a third reveal is arriving on May 5.

Pre-sale tickets go on sale Thursday, April 21, at 10 am using the password CRUZ,  while regular tickets go on-sale to the general public Friday, April 22, 10 am via Ticketmaster.

Las Vegas’ 3rd Annual “Life Is Beautiful” Festival Boasts Headliners Stevie Wonder And Kendrick Lamar


Just as Summer festival season is starting to wind down, we think that we are going to be in the “clear” for outdoor festivals for a while…well nope, that’s not going to happen, not just yet at least.

Out in the middle of the desert of Nevada, Sin City will host the 3rd annual “Life Is Beautiful” Festival the weekend of September 25th – 27th, which is a change from taking place in October in past years, over the span of 15 city blocks of downtown Las Vegas. Life Is Beautiful is different than most music festivals, as it will present “an unparalleled event experience, seamlessly incorporating amazing music, incredible art, and cuisine into three days of unforgettable fun and entertainment.”

Stevie Wonder and Kendrick Lamar top this year’s lineup, performing alongside Duran Duran, Weezer, Death Cab For Cutie, Brandon Flowers, Run the Jewels, Kid Cudi, Future Islands, Royal Blood, Metric, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, Dan Deacon, and Shamir.

Ticket prices range from $115 for single-day passes to $195 for the general admission 3-day pass. Hop on over to the festival’s website to purchase your tickets before they are all gone.
