Just listen to the track….. Currently No.1 on the iTunes Jazz Chart. And check out their performance on the Colbert Report last night HERE.
A month ago The Weeknd dropped new music and now I can’t help but keep hitting repeat on this remix of The Weeknd’s that new track, “Often” by the one and only Kygo! Give a listen for yourself and I think you’ll be like me, on repeat. So stoked to have The Weeknd performing at Life is Beautiful in Vegas this October! His first festival in over two years!
This morning we announced six new artist additions to the Life is Beautiful Festival 2014 lineup! Stoked to keep making this lineup stronger with the additions of Little Dragon, Baauer, Kimbra, Nahko and Medicine For The People, Echosmith and Bear Hands!
Little Dragon – have never played Las Vegas
Baauer – throws down some of the best DJ sets I’ve ever experienced at festivals let alone quickly becoming one of the best nightclub DJs around
Kimbra – is back after close to a three year absence where she was working on her new album The Golden Echo which drops August 19. Her new single, “Miracle” just dropped and Life is Beautiful is her only festival this year
Nahko and Medicine For The People – get ready to get a little spiritual and dance away with these Portlandians
Echosmith – if you haven’t listened to the song, “Cool Kids” I sure hope you know all the lyrics by October
Bear Hands – oh baby, this is going to be a great show. Check out their latest single “Agora”
I was saddened to hear about the passing of legendary blues guitarist Johnny Winter. Yet another amazing and talented musician who has left us this year. Personally I’m thankful that a spontaneous last minute trip to Jazz Fest this past May provided me the opportunity to hit the late night (and what became legendary) Gov’t Mule and Special Guests show at the Saenger Theatre where Johnny Winter sat in for a few songs. In what would become one of his final live performances, that was special regardless but now it has a whole new memory for me.
Check out this photo of Warren Haynes and Johnny Winter from Dino Perrucci Photography which amazingly captures that special moment on the evening of May 2, 2014.
