Countdown to Life is Beautiful 2014: Dizzy Wright

11 Oct

Lucky 13! Getting closer to Life is Beautiful 2014 and one of the acts I am pumped we were able to add this year is Vegas’ own, Dizzy Wright. The 23 year old rising hip-hop star is poised to be the next musician to break from the neon desert. Anyone who’s see Dizzy live can attest to his on-stage presence but it’s his lyrics that make him a champion. The 2013 XXL Freshman Class honoree raps a positive message and awareness. So far so good because the fans keep lining up to see him and you won’t want to miss his set on Sunday, October 26 on the Ambassador Stage at 3:35 p.m.

Countdown to Bonnaroo: 18 Days – Artist of the Day: Wiz Khalifa

22 May

If you asked most people how they first heard of Wiz Khalifa, my guess would be either “Black & Yellow” or his arrest on drug charges in North Carolina which was plastered all over twitter.  For me, I remember hearing his track “Say Yeah” in which he sampled Alice Deejay’s “Better Off Alone.”  One of this summer’s festival darlings and in support of his latest album, Rolling Papers, Khalifa should put on one heck of a performance (check the videos from Coachella) at Bonnaroo.  Sadly in my case, after sorting through the schedule it looks like I’m going to miss the show (conflicts with Mumford & Sons who hands down put on one of the best live performances).
