New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia - 1 views

  • According to the official Jazz Fest website, "The Festival celebrates the indigenous music and culture of New Orleans and Louisiana, so the music encompasses every style associated with the city and the state: blues, R&B, gospel music, Cajun music, zydeco, Afro-Caribbean, folk music, Latin, rock, rap music, country music, bluegrass and everything in between. And of course there is lots of jazz, both contemporary and traditional.
  • The Festival has been held annually since 1970, when it was founded by the New Orleans Hotel Motel Association, to form "the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Foundation" that owns the Festival. George Wein's "Festival Productions, Inc" was contracted to produce the Festival. Wein was the producer of the Newport Jazz Festival (1954) and the Newport Folk Festival (1959) in Newport, Rhode Island.

The History of Electric Daisy Carnival - How To EDC - 1 views

  • The Electric Daisy Carnival is one of the world’s largest electronic dance music festivals.  In fact, it has the highest attendance of any music festival of its kind outside Europe, leading some to dub it “The American Ibiza”.  Founded in 1997 by Insomniac Events, and named after Steve Kool-Aid’s original creation, the festival has gone from big to massive in recent years.
  • DC expanded very quickly.  It was first held in 1997 at the Shrine Expo Hall in Los Angeles where 5000 ravers packed the hall.    Originally set as a California only event, these days EDCs are everywhere!  EDC can now be found in Colorado, Texas, Puerto Rico, Florida, and even the Garden State of New Jersey. At the 16th annual EDC, the event took place at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway for 3 days on  June 8th through June 10th.  The music festival pulled in over 300,000 people and featured over 100 EDM artists from around the world.    Unfortunately, the electronic music festival became tainted by the deaths of 2 festival goers.  A drunk raver was killed after being hit by a truck while crossing the street and a young college pre-medical student who fell out of her hotel window after consuming ecstasy.

The technology that they bring to the industry is the concept of doing the concert event underwater and for the fact that 100's of divers come playing there instruments in this colorful marine environment to express who they are and what they enjoy doing. What this festival has brought to this industry is its unique flavor which i believe is something that causes other company's and individuals to be creative in the musical festivals that are created

Music Festivals Bring Wearable Tech To The Forefront Of Concert Experiences - PSFK - 1 views

  • Lollapalooza is investing in more than just quality tunes this year. For the first time, the Chicago music festival will be offering festivalgoers wearable tech that can be linked to credit and debit card information. These wrist bands, which will be sent to attendees in the weeks preceding the festival’s start, use basic radio frequency identification (RFID).
  • This form of wearable payment will allow patrons to pay for food and drinks without having to carry cash or swipe their plastic.Those attending the festival will be asked to enter their credit card information prior to the festival’s first weekend and during the weekend vendors will have pay pads on which users can tap their bracelets and enter a pin number.
  • Last year’s South by Southwest festival featured Lightwave technology that enabled lasers and special effects. One of the Lightwave  perks of the weekend was a wristband that measured audience interaction in real time. The bands measured audience members’ biometrics by tracking them with motion, volume and temperature sensors. Sponsored by a partnership with Pepsi, Lightwave bands were linked to user’s individual accounts and audience interaction was ranked on a screen at the front of the room. Certain levels of dance interaction “unlocked” rewards, such as Pepsi refreshments.

The Untold Story of the First U.S. Rock Festival: The Fantasy Fair Magic Mountain Music... - 0 views

  • On June 10th and 11th, 1967 — one week before the Monterey Pop Festival and two years before Woodstock — tens of thousands of Bay Area music fans converged on the Sydney B. Cushing Memorial Amphitheatre on Mount Tamalpais in Marin County, California, for the first U.S. rock festival.
  • Conceived as a promotion for the KFRC 610 AM radio station, the Fantasy Fair and Magic Mountain Music Festival featured more than 30 acts, including the Doors, Jefferson Airplane, the Byrds and Captain Beefheart & the Magic Band, as well as a group of Hells Angels and an "acid doctor" to mitigate bad trips.
  • Chris Darrow (Kaleidoscope): KFRC were very understanding of what was happening and they went out of their way to play new and cool music. This was an extension of the Love-In in Los Angeles and the Be-In. We'd show up to a park and there'd be bands playing all day long. Everyone just showed up to these things and played for free.
  • ...4 more annotations...
  • Larry Taylor (Canned Heat): People would get together in a big park and listen to music and hang out. I played music in the Fifties and I remember wearing cummerbunds, plaid jackets and uniforms. All of a sudden, that was trash. I got into American Indian beads and pants with hand-painted psychedelic stuff on it. I haven't really worn a suit since. [Laughs] It came together out of nowhere. All of a sudden it just became this…thing.
  • Dylan first played electric at Newport
  • Tickets were $2 for the weekend.
  • Rounds: Booking bands was the easiest part of it, because KFRC being the Number One Top 40 radio station in San Francisco had the total support of the record promotion guys. Anybody playing in the Northern California area made sure that they visited the outdoor theater on Mount Tam as long as it was not a conflict with anything they were booked to do. The outdoor theater had no lighting, so the festival started at 8 a.m. and had to be over by 6 p.m. So we didn't compete with the local promoters if their bands were playing at night.
