More Info

The Head and the Heart: Composed primarily of transplants to the Seattle area, The Head and the Heart write and play songs that speak to the newness of a fresh start, of the ghosts left behind, of moving forward, all brimming with a soulfulness and hope for a better life than the one we've all been sold.

Stylistically, think a folksy Beatles or Crosby Stills Nash & Young with more oomph. Catchy piano melodies stand side by side with a tight trio of harmonies, and solid minimalist drums, groovin bass, and plenty of hand percussion and foot stomps make the live show inspiring and really goddamn fun.

The band's first album will be self-released at the end of June 2010.

Nicolas Jaar: Nicolas Jaar was born the 10th of January 1990 in New York but spent most of his childhood in Santiago de chile. Haunted by Mulatu Astatke and Erik Satie, he started making electronic music in 2004. At the age of 17, he made his debut on Wolf + Lamb records. Now 21 years old, Nico runs his own label clown & sunset and just released his debut album "space is only noise".

Martin Garrix: Martin Garrix first came onto the scene with his remix of Christina Aguilera's "Your Body" in 2012. The very next year, he struck gold with his solo single "Animals", which shot to #1 in the UK and topped charts around the world.

Garrix began 2014 with the two hit singles, "Wizard" and "Helicopter", and later outdid himself with his EP, Gold Skies. That EP gave him two more chart-topping singles in the album's title track, as well as "Tremors". With his position on the charts secure, Garrix sought to make a reputation for himself at some of the most prestigious clubs and music venues in the world.

In 2016, Garrix founded his own record label -- STMPD RCRDS -- as well as cementing a deal with Sony Music International. The deals allowed Garrix more freedom in the production of his music, and was likely in anticipation of his debut LP due later that year.

Lady Gaga: Lady Gaga came to prominence following the release of her debut studio album The Fame (2008), which included the hit "Just Dance" and "Poker Face", and sold over 15 million copies worldwide. She is well recognized for her outré sense of style as a recording artist, in fashion, in performance and in her music videos. Her contributions to the music industry have garnered her numerous achievements including five Grammy Awards amongst fifteen nominations, two Guinness World Records, a record setting thirteen MTV Video Music Award nominations and the estimated sale of 23 million albums and 64 million singles worldwide. Billboard named her both the "2010 Artist of the Year" and the top selling artist of 2010 ranking her as the 73rd Artist of the 2000s decade. Her third studio album, Born This Way, broke the iTunes record for the fastest rise to the # 1 on release day. The singles from the album, including “Born This Way,” “Judas,” “The Edge of Glory,” “Yoü and I,” and “Marry The Night” have sold a combined total of more than 9 million copies in the US alone. Gaga was named Forbes' Most Powerful Woman in the World 2011 and was included in Time's annual "The 2010 Time 100" list of the most influential people in the world. With over 2.1 billion combined views of all her videos online, Lady Gaga is one of the biggest living people on Facebook with over 46 million ‘likes’ and is #1 on Twitter with over 17.9 million followers. Lady Gaga is the only artist in the digital era to top the 5 million sales mark with her first two hits.

Bon Iver: Justin Vernon, of the folk indie band Bon Iver, claims that to truly experience the combination of ethereal sound and harmonizing vocals, it takes the entire audience of a tour date singing together with the band. While Bon Iver's tour dates at festivals like Lollapalooza and Bonnaroo have become hugely popular, fans can still capture the essence of their unique sound on hit records like their eponymous second album. Those that have heard one of Bon Iver's albums but have not experienced live on their concert schedule will get the opportunity this summer on one of the band's North American or European tour dates in 2011.

Frontman and soul of Bon Iver, Justin Vernon, had been in a number of bands, including DeYarmond Edison and two solo projects. After DeYarmond Edison disbanded, Vernon came down with mononucleosis and began writing and recording songs from his bed. While initially meant to be a demo, Vernon released the songs under the title For Emma, Forever Ago and the album was soon acclaimed by critics and audiences. Nearly every music website and magazine gave it rave reviews and songs from the album began appearing all over television. The success of the album led Bon Iver to recruit a backing band for live shows and began playing tour dates at Austin City Limits, SXSW, and Sasquatch!, just to name a few.

Bon Iver's second eponymous album received even greater reviews and praise from the world, skyrocketing to the top of the charts and currently rushing towards gold certification. While Bon Iver has scheduled many tour dates in 2011, much like the album, his concert schedule has become so popular that many tour dates are sold out. Bon Iver's concert schedule begins in North America on July 22 and will begin in Europe on October 19. After dozens of stops, Bon Iver's 2011 tour dates will end on November 11; fans who are looking for tickets to the sold out shows need look no further, as Eventful still has tickets for some of the tour dates. Don't miss this opportunity to catch one of the world's most popular live acts on his 2011 tour dates.

Classixx: Classixx is an American production and DJ duo, based in Los Angeles, composed of Michael David and Tyler Blake. They were previously known as Young Americans.

S U R V I V E: Formed in Austin circa 2009, S U R V I V E consists of founder Adam Jones, Mark Donica, Kyle Dixon, and Michael Stein. All four were prominent in Austin's synth scene before coming together as a group and releasing their debut EP LLR002.

The group's self-titled, debut LP was released to substantial acclaim in 2012, and the quartet began to amass a cult following. However, it wasn't until Dixon and Stein used S U R V I V E's unique synthesizer style for the score of Netflix's hit series Stranger Things, that the group achieved national recognition and fame.

ScHoolboy Q: For the first time in a long time, Hip Hop can genuinely say that a new generation of MC’s have arrived. Sure, there are those who helped birth the culture and music and people who can say they grew up with it. But now, you are witnessing perhaps the first generation that can say they were raised on Hip Hop almost exclusively. If you don’t agree, you’re probably not listening to enough ScHoolboy Q.

Although the artist born Quincy Matthew Hanley has only been rapping since 2007, his bluntly charismatic presence on wax should’ve already put him on your radar as one of rap’s emerging voices. After his new project Habits & Contradictions (#HnC) makes its way into your rotation though, he’s sure to be a fixture.

Born in Germany to a pair of military parents, Q spent the first three years of his life in Texas before his family eventually settled in Los Angeles. Like so many before him, the ScHoolboy’s L.A. experience provided a life­shaping balance of sports, school, drugs and gangs.

“I got the bad, the good, and the real bad,” says Q who earned his name from being known for going to best schools, but also being heavy in the streets. “I learned what to do, and how to get into trouble. A lot of the stuff I did, I regret. Shit I hate talking about now because I’m over it. Stuff I regret. But it all made me who I am.”

Growing up on the corner of 51st and Figueroa, ScHoolboy Q lived just 8 minutes away from the Staples Center where Kobe Bryant and the Lakers hoisted trophies every other year. For a while, Q looked to be on his way to a similar path as he played football, baseball, basketball and even joined the swimming team in high school. Unable to resist the lure of his surroundings, he soon found himself drowning in a abyss of slanging crack, shootouts and jail time.

“I didn’t know what I wanted to do with myself until 2007,” he admits now. “That’s when I first really started rapping. I thought my shit was tight, but it really wasn’t. But I found out that had a passion for it that I didn’t know I had.”

Noting The Notorious B.I.G., Nas and 50 Cent as his biggest influences, the California lifestyle can easily be heard in his voice, slang and content. His ability to mesh the two allows a delivery that makes him standout on every track he hops on.

“Everybody expects me to say 2Pac is my biggest influence because of where I’m from,” he says respectfully. “But he didn’t have a big influence on my music. I always listened to a lot of East Coast rappers. I used to get in arguments all the time about who was better, Dogg Pound or Mobb Deep.”

Q got his first chance to start arguments over his music with his 2007 debut mixtape, ScHoolboy Turned Hustla introduced to audiences on the West Coast. In hindsight, Q says he doesn’t think it was his best work. Regardless, the project generated enough attention for growing imprint Top Dawg Entertainment to recruit him to the label that was already home to his future Black Hippy co­stars Jay Rock, Kendrick Lamar and Ab­Soul. While his raps illustrated the life of a man who had one foot in the street and the other in the studio, that lifestyle almost closed the door on his rap career before it even got off the ground.

“Top Dawg almost kicked me out of TDE for being in the streets,” he says. “Ali sat me down to talk with me to get my shit together. He told me they saw something in me that I didn’t see in myself. That talk saved my

life.”

Convinced that rap was the road for him, a newly focused ScHoolboy Q followed up with his sophomore mixtape Gangsta & Soul in 2009. While the project showed growth, it wasn’t until his debut album Setbacks hit the streets that ScHoolboy Q felt that he had finally arrived.

“The other two projects were very premature,” says Q, whose profile was rising due to solid cameo appearances on tracks like Kendrick Lamar’s “Michael Jordan.” “People just thought I was a dude with funny name. By this time I had some verses that people remembered from other songs. It was the perfect way to let the world know where I was coming from.”

Powered by instant favorites like “#BetIgotsomeweed,” “I’m Good” and “Birds & The Beez” Setbacks offered a balance that most young rappers don’t achieve until their lucky enough to call themselves a veteran.

And while Q personally labels Setbacks as the story of his life up to that point, the highly anticipated Habits & Contradictions offers another chapter in a book that will surely flip the page on what you may expect a West Coast Hip Hop album to sound like.

“I just feel like I need to give people me, I can’t be out here faking,” says Q about #HnC. “I’m a happy energetic dude but I want people to know me, my ups and downs. Some songs I talk about clothes, bitches and weed, but other ones I hit you with the real.”

Describing the album as a prequel to Setbacks, Q picks up where he left off with “Druggy And Hoes Again,” an uptempo remake of a song from his previous project. #HnC also has Q working with one of his all­time favorite producers The Alchemist for “My Homie.”

“It was like a dream come true working with him,” he says about the track that speaks on his experiences with fake friendships and betrayal. “I damn near wanted to start crying when he told me he knew who I was.”

Q offers another unique perspective on the tongue­in­cheek “Hatin’ Joint” produced by Mike Will.

“Rappers act like they never hated on anybody, I have,” he admits. “We all have, trying to get a bitch I was younger. Rappers love talking about having so many haters, why not be the hater sometimes.”

If the hits on Habits & Contradictions are any indication, ScHoolboy Q will surely have his share of haters too. But it’s a safe bet that he will have even more supporters.

“Everything I put on paper is a true story,” says Q. “Some of it may have a little something added or taken out because I can’t put the real out there all the way. But it’s always true.”

Tory Lanez: Originally from Toronto, Tory Lanez (born Daystar Peterson) moved around Canada and the US due to an unstable family life. After being abandoned by his grandmother at the age of 15, Lanez raised himself on the streets of Jamaica, Queens. He dropped out of school the next year, eventually performing concerts on the street with his naturally gifted vocal talents.

Lanez released his debut mixtape at the age of 17, while living in South Florida. One of his amateur, self-directed music videos caught the eye of Sean Kingston, who gave Lanez his first professional live performance on Justin Bieber’s tour. Lanez was briefly signed to Kingston’s Time is Money Entertainment label, but left to be an independent artist.

Lane rose to prominence in 2014 with his Fargo Fridays series for HotNewHipHop. While the young artist was growing his own name brand, he was also secretly writing songs for the likes of Akon, Meek Mill, and T.I. It wasn’t until he released the Lost Cause mixtape that Lanez reached the kind of recognition he had been seeking. A year later, Lanez released his first EP, Cruel Intentions, and shortly after signed with Interscope Records.

Having signed with a major label, Lanez was able to work on his debut studio album. Before the album had even been completed, the lead single, “Say It”, became a smash hit, reaching #23 on the Billboard Top 100. I Told You was released a few months later, in August of 2016, already massively supported by the single’s popularity and the promise of a national tour.

Two Door Cinema Club: Those who haven't heard of the post-punk revival trio, Two Door Cinema Club, soon will, as this Irish band is taking the mainstream music world by storm. After playing for just four years, the members of Two Door Cinema Club have already released a hit album, titled Tourist History, and have played tour dates around the world. Two Door Cinema Club has even more scheduled tour dates in 2011, including concert dates at some of the summer's biggest music festivals. Those who haven't heard of the band should immediately rush out and buy Tourist History, or check out one of their hugely popular tour dates this summer.

Friends Alex Trimble (guitar, lead vocals), Sam Halliday (guitar), and Kevin Baird (bass) formed Two Door Cinema Club in Bangor, County Down, Northern Ireland in 2007. Originally a four-piece band called LifeWithoutRory, the group's drummer left and the group has used session drummers on their albums and on tour dates. Two Door Cinema Club began writing songs that were posted on MySpace, becoming hugely popular in a short time. The encouragement led the band to record the EP, Four Words to Stand On in 2009, which was praised and publicized by critics. After catching the attention of Kitsuné Records, Two Door Cinema Club released their debut album, Tourist History in 2010. The album received great reviews and, for a debut album, has even done well on the mainstream charts.

The success of Tourist History has led to copious tour dates in 2010 and 2011. Two Door Cinema Club has had a touring relationship with Phoenix, and have opened many tour dates for them in the past year. They have played many concert dates throughout the UK and Ireland, and have performed brief tours in Australia, Asia, and even in Hong Kong with dream pop band, Delphic. Also, uniquely enough, Two Door Cinema Club has played a number of May Balls in the UK, most famously at the University of Cambridge. The band is probably best known for their tour dates at summer music festivals, which will continue this summer in 2011.

Two Door Cinema Club has almost four solid months worth of festival and tour dates in 2011 all over Europe, North America, and East Asia. The tour dates for 2011 are currently ongoing and will be extremely busy jumping around Europe and Asia from June to August. Highlighted festival tour dates will include the Hurricane/Southside Festival, Glastonbury Festival, Oxegen Festival, Lollapalooza, Summersonic Festival, and the Reading and Leeds Festivals. Beginning on September 8 in Boston, Two Door Cinema Club will perform a handful of 2011 tour dates in North America, ending on September 24 in San Diego. While there are plenty of tour dates for Two Door Cinema Club in 2011, fans shouldn't wait to buy tickets for their local concert date.

BASTILLE: Initially started as a solo project by Dan Smith, Bastille have become an international sensation. After experiencing some moderate success in the UK with their debut album, Bad Blood, they rocketed to stardom after their single, "Pompeii", became a hit with music lovers around the world. The single has gone Platinum in the UK and Double Platinum in the US, and the band itself won the 2014 Brit Award for British Breakthrough Act.

DJ Snake: DJ Snake has made a name for himself both in front of and behind the mic. His first Grammy nomination came after he did producing work on the Lady Gaga album Born This Way. He has remixed songs like "New Slaves" by Kanye West, Major Lazer's "Bubble Butt", and "Dirty Vibe" by Skrillex. However, DJ Snake's biggest hits are those where he serves as lead artist, particularly "Turn Down For What" featuring Lil Jon, and "You Know You Like It" with AlunaGeorge.

Gucci Mane: Southern rapper and collabo king, Gucci Mane, was known mostly for his street albums and his big-name collaborations before he hit it big as a solo star in 2007. The hip-hop heavyweight recently released his third album in 2010 and will be on the road throughout 2011 to promote the disc. Gucci Mane tour dates are scheduled at club venues throughout the nation this 2011. Don't miss a date on the Gucci Mane tour schedule; Use Eventful as your source for Gucci Mane concerts and performances.

Born in Birmingham, he was transplanted to Atlanta and was heavily influenced by the burgeoning southern rap scene of Georgia. He began rapping by 14-years old and released his street album debut, La Flare, in 2001. Only 1000 copies of the disc were made and Gucci Mane performed at local clubs and venues to promote the effort. It took the young MC a few years to hone his skills, but he managed to release his Tommy Boy debut, Trap House, in 2005. The album was a surprise hit for an independent release. It managed to chart at #10 on the Billboard Rap charts and the album featured the hit single "Icy" with Young Jeezy. Another street album, Hard to Kill, fared even better on the charts reaching #6 in 2006.

By 2007, Gucci Mane was ready to release his major label debut, Back to the Trap House. But it wasn't until 2009, that he scored his first #1 Rap album, The State vs. Radric Davis. The album featured the hit single "Spotlight", which featured Usher, and "Wasted" featuring Plies. The album was well-received and earned Gucci Mane the #6 spot on MTV's annual "Hottest MC in the Game" list in 2009. Gucci Mane tour dates and concert performances were scheduled periodically throughout the nation to promote the disc and capitalize on his rising cache. Gucci Mane also founded his own record label, 1017 Brick Squad Records, in 2009 and picked up rising MC, Waka Flocka Flame, the following year. He released his latest album, The Appeal: Georgia's Most Wanted, in 2010. The album featured the hit single "Gucci Time", and debuted at #4 on the Billboard 200, becoming his highest charting mainstream album to-date.

Gucci Mane scheduled the unofficially titled The Appeal Tour to promote the disc. The whirlwind concert tour has Gucci Mane traversing the country playing intimate venues to his loyal fans. In addition to his studio albums, he continues to release street albums; his most recent, The Return of Mr. Zone 6, recently hit #2 on the Billboard Rap charts in March, 2011. The prolific rapper continues to write rhymes and produce hits for his upcoming album to culminate the trilogy. The upcoming album, The State vs. Radric Davis: The Verdict, is due out once Gucci Mane wraps up his summer tour. The prolific rapper will be out on the road for selected dates throughout 2011.

Kaleo: Icelandic

Royksopp: ( IPA: ['ɾøekˌsop:]; sometimes misspelled 'Royksopp' or 'Røyksopp') is an electronic music duo based in Bergen, Norway composed of Torbjørn Brundtland and Svein Berge. The group formed officially in 1998 and released their debut album Melody A.M. in 2001.

Despite the fact that Brundtland and Berge were schoolmates in their hometown of Tromsø and experimented with electronic instruments in the early 90's, Röyksopp only appeared years later when they met again in Bergen. The city was a vital scene for underground electronic music at this time, and the band worked with other Norwegian musicians such as Frost, Kings of Convenience’s guitarist/singer Erlend Øye, Those Norwegians and Drum Island in what was called the Bergen Wave. Their first singles were released by local independent label Tellé, and their album Melody A.M. on British label Wall of Sound. It spawned singles like "Eple", "Poor Leno", "Remind Me" and "Sparks".
