Mumford & Sons, Vampire Weekend, HAIM to headline Okeechobee Fest 2020

After a one-year hiatus, the Okeechobee Music and Arts Festival is ready to rock once more.

On Monday (Oct. 14), the central Florida-based music festival announced not only its return but also its complete lineup. Headlining its comeback event will be Mumford $ Sons, Vampire Weekend, and HAIM.

Joining the acts as mentioned earlier on the roster are Rüfüs Du Sol, Bassnectar, Kaskade, Big Gigantic, ARIZONA, Sublime with Rome, Blood Orange, Bob Moses, Glass Animals, and more. As per the festival’s website, over 100 acts are set to appear at the 2020 incarnation of the event.

In the true spirit of diversity, Okeechobee Fest will bring back Jungle 51, their all-hours outdoor dance party as well as Aquachobee, their white-sand beach party.

If dance and beach parties aren’t tour thing, then it may be a good idea to check out Chobeewobee Village. The village will feature a mix of immersive art, food, drinks, yoga classes, workshops, and speakers, a great idea for those who need a little R and R after rocking out all night.

Okeechobee Music and Arts Festival returns to its home at the Sunshine Grove in Okeechobee, Florida, during the weekend of March 5-8, 2020.

Tickets go on sale via the festival’s website this Friday, Oct. 18, at 10 a.m. EST. For more information about Okeechobee Fest 2020, head on over to the festival’s website here.

Charli XCX joins forces with HAIM on ‘Warm’

It’s almost Labor Day weekend, and Charli XCX is here to help you celebrate (unless you’re in South Florida like us) with a brand new song.

On Friday (Aug. 30), the musician unleashed the latest single from her upcoming third studio album. Titled “Warm,” the almost four-minute tune finds the singer joining forces with HAIM and questioning the status of a romantic relationship.

“It’s about unrequited love or more just like when you are in it with someone, and they are a player, and you aren’t in that zone, and you just can’t get on the same page,” Charli says about the new song in a press statement

“Danielle [Haim], Este [Haim] and Alana [Haim] came over to our studio house, and they wrote their part, we were in LA when we did that, and I’m just very happy we got to collaborate.”

Listen to “Warm” above.

“Warm” joins a slew of previously released tracks such as “Gone” with Christine and the Queens, “1999” with Troye Sivan, “Blame It on Your Love” with Lizzo, and “Cross You Out” with Sky Ferreira on Charli.

Charli is due out Sept. 13 through Atlantic Records. Pre-orders for the album are available here.

The 15-track record is the follow-up to 2014’s Sucker.

Earlier this summer, Charli announced plans to embark on a fall tour. The Charli LIVE World Tour will invade North America throughout September and October.

At the time of publication, a handful of shows have been classified as sold out. Those gigs include Emo’s in Austin on Sept. 24, Showbox Market in Seattle on Oct. 4, the House of Blues in Chicago on Oct. 12, the 9:30 Club in Washington D.C. on Oct. 18, Union Transfer in Philadelphia on Oct. 19, and her final tour stop at Terminal 5 in New York on Oct. 22.

Tommy Genesis, Brooke Candy, Dorian Electra, and Allie X will support Charli on select dates.

The full list of upcoming tour dates can be found here.

“This summer’s festival will be my first as editor,” Pitchfork editor-in-chief Puja Patel said in a press statement.

“It’s exciting that it also features such an inclusive lineup. More than half the artists performing are women, including modern pioneers of indie rock and hip-hop, legends of soul and R&B, and a headlining set by the dance-pop icon Robyn.

HAIM and Calvin Harris “Pray to God” in New Song

calvinharris

Calvin Harris might have made headlines recently for breaking up with his former flame, pop star Rita Ora and the issues surrounding a certain song which he refused to let her perform live, but we’re thinking the DJ has moved on (we know Ora has).

Harris revealed a few months back that he would be releasing a new album full of new collaborations with artists. To date, the DJ has released several tracks from his fourth studio album since he announced the record.

Songs such as  “Under Control,” “Summer,” “Blame,” “Open Wide” featuring Big Sean, and “Outside” featuring Ellie Goudling have already been released and now we can add another song to the list.

Today, the Scottish producer has released another new song from Motion. The song is titled “Pray to God’ and features vocals from sister group, HAIM, but don’t let the title fool you, because the song is catchy and plays up both HAIM and Harris’ strengths.

Check out the song below.

Motion is slated to be released on Nov. 4, but for those who are too excited to wait for its official released next week, they can head on over to iTunes Radio where all new 15 tracks are currently being streamed.
