Music by DJ Villa Diamante. U.S. debut.

As the “undisputed ambassador” of the energetic, New Orleans-based Bounce movement, Big Freedia isn’t afraid to twerk, wiggle, and shake her way to self-confidence, and is encouraging her fans to do the same. Big Freedia (pronounced “FREE-da”), is known as the Queen of Bounce (a subgenre of hip-hop born out of New Orleans and known for its call and response style and lightening speed booty-shaking dance). Performing five out of seven nights in any given week with dancers she calls The Divas, Big Freedia’s show is nothing short of dazzling. Though gay and proud, Big Freedia asserts that her (Freedia is a he but uses the feminine pronoun for her stage persona) sexuality has little to do with her music. “All Bounce is Bounce,” she insists. “There’s no need to separate it out. All types of people—gay, straight, rich, poor, black, white come to my shows. People just wanna get out and shake their azzzz and have a good time!” And therein lies the beauty of Big Freedia: She can rock a pair of dangling gold earrings and light up a blunt and chop it up with the hardest rapper around. She’s not a gay artist, but rather an artist who happens to be gay.
Adam Dyment, aka Duke Dumont, surfaced in 2006 with a buzzing, whip-cracking remix of Mekon’s “Yes Yes Y’All.” The London, England-based producer and DJ, inspired by “fidget house” figure Switch (M.I.A., Major Lazer), continued to increase his exposure through remixes for the likes of Late of the Pier (“Bathroom Gurgle”), Bat for Lashes (“Daniel”), and Lily Allen (“The Fear”) prior to releasing his first DJ mix album, Fabriclive 51, in 2010. Dyment continued to be in demand as a remix producer — in 2012 alone, he handled tracks by Bonobo, Santigold, and AlunaGeorge, among others — but he also produced a hit of his own in March 2013 with “Need U (100%).” Co-produced by Futtize and featuring vocals from A*M*E, the track, reminiscent of early-’90s crossover house, topped the U.K. pop chart. One year on, in March 2014, Dyment hit the U.K. number one spot once again, this time with the Whitney Houston-sampling track “I Got U.”

WHAT: Thomas Youngblood founded KAMELOT and quickly released their debut album Eternity. The press praised the album as one of most promising debuts of all time. The successor Dominion hit the stores, with an opus that was even more diverse and varied than the debut. Later on KAMELOT’s video ‘The Haunting’ and ‘March of Mephisto’ became huge hits on YouTube and prompted the band to launch their own YouTube channel, aptly titled KamTV. KamTV’s initial launch hurled the band into YouTube’s top 10 music channels and #1 Metal Channel, transcending all genres. With the release of The Black Halo, KAMELOT started on a headliner tour in Europe, North American, Japan and Brazil, with countless festivals around the globe. Following the hugely successful album, KAMELOT released their first live DVD, called One Cold Winter’s Night. The DVD was heralded by the press and fans alike and set a new standard for DVDs in the genre. Subsequently, KAMELOT presented themselves more sinister and soulful but have now returned to the melodic aspects of their multi-layered sound with the album, Silverthorn. Silverthorn went directly to the top, debuting at the #1 position on Amazon’s Heavy Metal Chart! Along with this amazing accomplishment, KAMELOT also impacted major charts in other categories including the #9 position on Billboard’s Hard Rock Chart, #24 on the Rock Charts, #79 on Billboard’s Top 200 Chart, as well as appearing on multiple international charts.

GWAR RETURNS TO REVOLUTION LIVE WITH BORN OF OSIRIS AND BATTLECROSS
TICKETS ON SALE FRI., AUG. 21 / 10AM!
Eons ago, there existed an elite group of chaos warriors who ravaged the galaxy with a boundless hatred of all things alive. They were called the Scumdogs of the Universe, and they grew in might and fury, the greatest weapon in the arsenal of their cosmic Master. But they became too powerful, and too defiant, and for their cosmic crimes were banished to the most insignificant planet in the universe…the seething mudball known as Earth. Millions of years passed, and they slumbered, until the pollution of your world de-thawed these creatures from their ageless coma…and now they stride the Earth, living gods, dedicated to one goal, the destruction of the human race, and the eradication of existence itself! Wait- that’s two goals! Hark to the hideous majesty of your MASTERS, rulers of Earth, the MIGHTY GWAR!!!
An epic performance art installation that embodies the trauma of flooding, explores our troubled relationship to water, and contemplates our capacity for empathy, adaptation, and long-term thinking.
The brain-child of arts visionary and Senior TED Fellow Lars Jan, the centerpiece of HOLOSCENES is a publicly displayed, elevator-sized human aquarium inhabited by performers conducting everyday behaviors (making the bed, playing a guitar, cleaning the house) while it’s constantly filled and drained by a custom hydraulic water system. The spectacular project weaves the unraveling story of the rising seas, melting glaciers, intensifying floods and droughts—into the patterns of the everyday. According to Jan, the provocative and visceral work is made to “make people feel climate change in their gut, rather than just understand it.”
Taking place during Art Basel Miami.
Produced by MAPP International Productions in partnership with Early Morning Opera.
