Back in August, Stereogum posted this fantastic article noting the sudden rise of a genre that borrows its name from a style of Southern rap but caters its sound to the electronic dance scene. Although the “trap” moniker (also referred to as trap-rave or trap-step) has been somewhat confusing and even controversial, there is little doubt that this niche genre has quickly gathered a strong following throughout 2012 and looks poised to break into new levels of popularity in 2013. For those still unfamiliar with the bass-heavy, high-energy sound, Baauer, TNGHT and Flosstradamus should serve as a strong introduction…
With a some clever cyber-investigation, Huffington Post gives a bit of credibility to Coachella 2013 lineup rumors.
If true, Daft Punk fans will appreciate a chance to see one of the rarest major electronic performances on US soil. In may, Coachella released a limited presale just days after the 2012 festival. The presale sold out in minutes despite the year-long queue.
Earlier this month, Insomniac Events CEO Pasquale Rotella confirmed rumors of Electric Daisy Carnival expanding to Chicago by tweeting “New stop on road to @EDC_LasVegas! Chicago get ready! Date & venue out 1/16/13! NY announce coming in Jan!” With the massive success of Insomniac’s other EDC festivals, this is big news for Chicago EDM fans who already have a strong summer festival lineup including Lollapalooza (which has greatly expanded the electronic portion of its lineup over the last several years), North Coast Music Festival, Spring Awakening and Wavefront. Many sources speculate that the event will be held during Memorial Day weekend and will replace Aura Presents‘ Future Sound Music Festival, which was set for the same holiday weekend and has since been cancelled. Most details about the event are speculation at this point, but @EDCChicago2013 has tweeted that Armin Van Buuren may be among the first leaked headliners. Insomniac’s 2013 festival series will once again include a New York stop, the famous EDC Vegas event as well as events in Orlando and Puerto Rico. Updates will be available from electricdaisycarnival.com or Insomniac’s Twitter feed as well as from @KrowdSurfer.
