Loudwire Music Festival Announce First Headliner


As the years pass, more and more music festivals are being created and now we can add another one to that ever-expanding list.

Loudwire, an online music publication, recently announced plans for a festival of their own rock-centric festival in Colorado. The first ever Loudwire Music Festival will take place at Jam Ranch near Grand Junction, CO.

But if that wasn’t enough, the festival organizers have unveiled the first headliner of the inaugural event; Linkin Park.

“We’re really excited to play the first ever Loudwire Music Festival” said Linkin Park frontman, Chester Bennington. “This will be one epic rock show.”

The festival will feature rock musicians on all three of their stages from different sub-genres of the rock world. Most sub-genres will be represented such as hard rock, classic rock, alternative, metal and indie.

“We are very excited to launch the Loudwire Music Festival at Jam Ranch,” said Dhruv Prasad, Executive Vice President of Live Events for Townsquare Media

“Loudwire is one of our flagship brands–spanning broadcast radio, syndicated radio and a national website–so the addition of a live festival seemed a natural way to evolve the brand and deliver a great experience to rock music fans.”

Like many previously created music festivals, Loudwire will offer on-site camping for concert-goers. There will be three different options for camping including the standard, premier, and VIP.

As for tickets, there are several options beginning with General Admission which will start at $79. Reserved Seating will begin at $225 while VIP Seating and Experience will set you back $400.

The Loudwire Music Festival is set to take place during the weekend of June 26-28, 2015 while more performers who will join Linkin Park on the bill will be announced as the weekend gets closer.

Paramore Pay Tribute to Robin Williams


It’s been four days since news broke that Robin Williams passed away at the age of 63 from suicide in which he hung himself with a belt in his room and we all know how many fans are still in mourning.

During a recent stop on their co-headlining MONUMENTOUR with Fall Out Boy, Paramore paid tribute to the late comedian.
The frontwoman, who seems to have fully recovered since the band had to reluctantly cancel several show a couple of weeks back, gave a touching speech before dedicated their song, “Last Hope” to the late actor.

The speech begins with Williams reminiscing about the past ten years that the band had been on the road, from their beginning as this little unknown band, to now selling out arena and how there was a time where they were not happy at all and were in a place that was “depressing.”

The Fray Release New Song and Benefit News

the fray

The Fray might always been known as that band that gave Grey’s Anatomy their theme song, but that doesn’t mean that’s where they end. Today, the band have revealed a brand new song titled, “Love Don’t Die.” The song debuted on radio yesterday, but the song will go on sale on iTunes on October 21.

The new song will be featured on the band’s upcoming fourth album which is still untitled. One thing that is official is the fact that the album is scheduled to hit stores on January 14, 2014; the audio video for the song can be heard below.

The Colorado-based band not only released the new song, but it was  also announced that they will be joining forces with Dave Matthews, members of the Lumineers, Nathaniel Ratelff and many others for “Colorado Rising: A Benefit for Flood Relief.” The show is scheduled to take place on October 27 at the 1st Bank Center in Broomfield and all proceeds from the show will go to help out the victims of the Colorado flood that took place last month.

“Coloradans unite during crisis – so does the music community. We are thrilled so many musicians are coming together for this flood relief benefit concert,” said Gov. John Hickenlooper in an AEG Live and Live Nation news release.

Tickets for the concert range from  $65-$125 and go on sale October 18, but like it was stated earlier, all proceeds go to those affected by the storms.
