From the people that brought us Identity Festival a few years ago, now comes what is clearly shaping up to be one of the most highly anticipated EDM events of the fall. Earlier today, Safe in Sound Festival announced the first twenty event dates along with the first round of artists who will be joining the festival as it makes its way across the United States and some parts of Canada.
#GRIMESEASON is officially in full swing.
After announcing plans for his debut album, releasing a dark and mischievous new single complete with a sick music video, all while still managing to complete an entirely different single under his other alias, Clockwork, RL Grime is still not done releasing more wonderful news for his fans. Later this fall, RL Grime will begin his very own headlining tour. Starting off at Philadelphia's Electric Factory on October 30th, the Void tour will be sure to wreak some havoc on unsuspecting cities all over America.

Lemaitre. We here at Joonbug.com have spent the last two weeks endlessly praising that name, and the absolutely brand new EP, Singularity, that goes along with it. Now, just two days after its release, the incredibly diverse and talented Norwegian indie-dance-disco-electro duo will be at The Westway with their second ever New York City appearance!
Lemaitre boasts an incredible live show experience that is as unique and intriguing as their musical sound itself. With the use of live instruments and vocals, in addition to three self-designed light installations, complete with 3D animations, the entire show is an incredible visual and audio spectacle of unparalleled proportions.
It has been quite the year thus far for electronic synth-rock trio, The Glitch Mob. The group's sophomore full-length album, Love Death Immortality, debuted at #13 and was named the #1 Independent Album + Dance/Electronic Album on Billboard's Top 200. Featuring vicious hits like 'Mind of a Beast,' 'Can't Kill Us,' which was recently included in the Sin City 2 trailer, and 'Our Demons' featuring Aja Volkman, Love Death Immortality stands out as one of the most unique and intriguing albums of the year, much like The Glitch Mob themselves, who exist in their own specific niche within the electronic music community as a result of their immensely creative approaches to both producing and performing.
We've got good news, and bad news. The bad news is, as most, if not everyone expected, HARD Summer 2014 is officially sold out. Now in its seventh year, HARD Summer is set to take place Saturday, August 2nd, and Sunday, August 3rd, at the Whittier Narrows Recreation Area in Los Angeles, with an epic lineup that includes headliners Jack U, Axwell, Flosstradamus, Tiesto, Disclosure, Dillon Francis, Nero, and the A$AP Mob.
Get ready to celebrate a crazy night with some of the hottest new acts coming out from right here in Chicago.
This Friday, Castle will be bringing together three young and talented acts to kick off the very first volume of Hometown Heroes! Beginning the night will be Animale, a progressive house producer who was recently nominated for Producer of the Year at the Chicago Nightlife awards alongside notable artists like Flosstradamus. Next in the lineup is Orville Kline, a high energy DJ dedicated to playing crazy, high energy sets from Tokyo to Vegas. Finally we have Kings of Class. After producing separately on their own for a few years, these two have only very recently begun to make a name for themselves on the scene, but have already managed to found the entertainment group United2Nite, create an international clothing and music tour brand House Music Saved My Life, all while releasing original tracks on labels like Movement Music & Sheeva Records.
It's finally happening. The endlessly talked about On The Run Tour, courtesy of everybody's favorite power couple, Jay Z and Beyoncé, is finally about to rock Soldier Field.
The On The Run Tour has already completely taken over stadiums across the country, and has mesmerized concert-goers everywhere. With their 40-ish song setlist, the couple trade off the spotlight every few songs, occasionally jumping in to help out the other. The On The Run Tour is sure to entertain and mesmerize over 60,000 lucky souls who manage to attend later this week.
It's no surprise to anyone that the concert is currently sold out, but keep checking around and pray that some more show up. Resale tickets for the highest tier of seating are already reaching around $188 a piece, but hey, it's freaking Jay-Z and Beyoncé, what did you expect?
With the most well-known, and intriguingly sinister grin in dance music today, Feed Me, aka Jon Gooch, is one artist who is easily picked out of a crowd, if not by the appearance of his little green friend, then by his ever-evolving yet distinctively signature sounds and productions. With Feed Me's Big Adventure and Feed Me's Escape From Electric Mountain behind him, Goch enjoyed a brief touring hiatus during which he found time to craft the full length album, Calamari Tuesday. And onAugust 2nd, Feed Me's Psychedelic Journey begins at Terminal 5 in New York City.
In an effort to make this year's edition stand out and above the rest of its festival kin even more so than it already does, Electric Zoo has announced the addition of the Sunday School Vinyl Only stage set to debut Friday, August 29th, as an extension of the Sunday School
Tent’s long-standing tradition as the gathering place for the unsung, underground heroes of electronic music. By providing an intimate setting inside the festival where fans can enjoy the authentic sounds of vinyl house and techno, the Sunday School Vinyl Only stage is a welcome escape from the raging roar of festival in general.
