Guy Makes Documentary About Sneaking into Music Festivals

documentary_festivalAs music lovers, we can all admit that one of our biggest goals is to attend as many music festival, concerts, and events as possible so we can get a taste for every type of a venue a musician gets the chance to play at.

Sadly, money rules and most of our dreams walk when you realize how much it would be to go to as many music events we would like to.

Money and obstacles is one thing that Marcus Haney laughs at. Haney has allegedly snuck into over 50 music festivals since 2010 including some biggies such as Bonnaroo, Coachella, Glastonbury and according to Haney, even the Grammys.

In his full-length documentary, No Cameras Allowed, he documents the last four years in which he traveled across the United States sneaking into the aforementioned festivals. He reveals how he plots to get in and reveals what he does to get into the festivals which include making replica wristbands and sneaking in by security guards like “he owns the place.”

Takes balls.

In a recent interview, Haney explained the premise of the documentary, “The trailer makes the film out to be about a guy sneaking into festivals, but it’s really a coming of age story set in a music world.”

“It’s a love letter written to these festivals, in a way. And it shows them in such a great light that my goal is that people will see my film and then go and experience live music on their own. there’s no way you can translate the live music experience onto film.”

With that, we will agree. Check out the trailer to No Cameras Allowed.

Kendrick Lamar Responds to Macklemore’s Text

kendricklamar

When Macklemore Instagramed a snap shot of a text he had sent Kendrick Lamar about how he thought Lamar should have won the Grammy for “Best Rap Album,” other artists had an opinion about it (yes, we’re looking at you, Drake), but Lamar decided to stay quiet.

About a month after the annual peacock parade that was the Grammys, Lamar has finally spoken out about the message during an interview with Billboard. Unlike Drake, Lamar took the text with grace and was okay with it, instead of saying that it was just a publicity stunt and “felt fake.”

“That text surprised me, but Macklemore is a genuine dude,” Lamar said. “However it panned out, I wish him much success. He touched people’s souls, and no one can take that away. Really, the whole GRAMMY moment was incredible. Not everyone gets that shot.”

But that’s not the only good thing that has come out of the rapper’s camp. Yesterday, rumors started to circulate that he will be releasing a new album this September when the magazine spoke with Top Dawg Entertainment’s Anthony Tiffith. The new album will be a follow-up to the Grammy nominated, Good Kid, M.A.D.D. City.

The Eurythmics to Reunite for Beatles Tribute

eurythmics

Sweet dreams are definitely made for fans of the Eurythmics because it has been confirmed that the 80s duo will once again reunite in honor of the Beatles.

The Recording Academy announced today that Annie Lennox and Dave Stewart will ‘come together’ as part of The Night That Changed America: A Grammy Salute to the Beatles.

Longtime Grammy producer Ken Ehrlich, who also happens to be the one producing the special thought that the duo would be the perfect candidates to join in on the special event paying tribute to iconic and influential rock band. 

“When it came around to booking this show, what I felt was important was to try and find those artists who not only would be able to interpret Beatles songs, but would also have an … understanding of what they meant,” he revealed in a recent interview.

During the interview, Ehrlich didn’t reveal which Beatles song the Eurythmics would be performing during the special, but he did reveal which songs other performers taking part in the special will perform. John Mayer and Keith Urban will pair up to perform “Don’t Let Me Down,” while Alicia Keys and John Legend will perform a duet version of “Let It Be.” Maroon 5, alongside a dozen other artists are scheduled to perform on the special.

The special will be taped at the Los Angeles Convention Center on January 27, a day after the Grammy Awards while the special will air on CBS, February 9, exactly 50 years after the Beatles made their U.S. debut on The Ed Sullivan Show.

Ehrlich also wouldn’t confirm if Paul McCartney or Ringo Starr will attend the special.

So which song do you guys think or hope the Eurythmics will perform during the special?

Surprise Performers Confirmed for the Grammys

grammy
The Grammys have revealed some of the performers that will be taking the stage at the annual music award show, but the biggest surprise on the list comes courtesy of some French DJs who like to wear helmets.

Can you guess who it is?

Well, we aren’t going to give you enough time to guess because the biggest shock on the list is that Daft Punk will be taking the stage to perform. This will be the first time in six years that the electronic duo will be performing on live television; the last time they performed on the show was in 2008 with Kanye West.

Since the release of Random Access Memories, the duo really haven’t done any public performance even though they did appear briefly on stage during the MTV Video Music Awards, but it was just to promote their newest single “Lose Yourself to Dance.” The Recording Academy is billing Daft Punk’s appearance as an “exclusive” one, so who knows, maybe it is. 

Also confirmed to take the stage is Kendrick Lamar who is nominated for seven awards including “Album of the Year” for Good Kid, M.A.A.D City, “New Artist” as well as “Best Rap Performance” for “Swimming Pools (Drank).” Imagine Dragons who are fresh from performing a killer mash-up of their songs on the American Music Awards will once again be hitting the stage for the Grammys where they are nominated for two awards one of which is “Record of the Year.”

Grammy veteran P!nk will also appear on the award show to perform what we assume is her Grammy-nominated song, “Just Give Me a Reason” with fun. frontman, Nate Ruess.

There will also be a special Grammy Moment performance by country artists Merle Haggard, Kris Kristofferson, Willie Nelson and Blake Shelton. The performance has been described as a tribute to the Texas and Oklahoma roots of the artists.

LL Cool J will once again be returning for hosting duties during the live broadcast of the show which will take place on January 26, from the Staples Center in Los Angeles. CBS will be airing the event live starting at 8 p.m. EST.
