It’s been a couple of years since No Doubt have been on the stage together, but the band hit the stage last night at the Global Citizen Festival in New York City.

For their encore, the band were joined on stage by Sting to perform his song, “Message in a Bottle.”

The special performance wasn’t so much of a surprise considering that earlier in the week, it was revealed Sting would be hitting the stage with the California band, but that was all that was announced.

Check out the video of the performance.

No Doubt and Sting were just some of the acts that performed at the third annual Global Citizen Festival. Also taking the stage were power-couple Jay-Z and Beyoncé who teamed up for Jay-Z’s “Holy Grail,”  like they did during the “On the Run” Tour with Beyoncé filling in on Justin Timberlake’s parts, and “Forever Young.”

The Roots, fun., Alicia Keys, and Tiesto also performed at the festival is sponsored by the Global Citizen movement, an initiative of the Global Poverty Project, which works to end extreme poverty by 2030.

The goal of the festival is to raise awareness and promote activism to end poverty. This year, Global Citizen is striving for commitments in vaccines, education and sanitation.

Forbes Highest Paid DJ List

ch

Who are the highest paid DJs of 2013 you migth ask? Well, Forbes has done the leg work and have come up with a list of who are raking in the dough on their turntables or Mac computers.

The man behind one of Summer’s biggest hits, “I Need Your Love,” Calvin Harris has landed on the tip spot of the list. Part of his fortune was made courtesy of his two-year deal with Las Vegas’ club, Hakkasan while the other was thanks to songwriting and producing credits. In total, Harris has made a total of $46 million so far this year.

“The rise of dance music has been astronomical in the last three years,” he said while speaking with the publication about his success. “I happened to be in the right place at the right time.”

To this day, the 29-year-old DJ has released three albums of his own and has worked with the likes of  Rihanna, Ne-Yo and Florence Welch and several more. Harris dethroned last year’s number one, Tiesto, who’s intake actually rose from last year to this year; last year he made $22 million and this year he made $32 million.

Also making it on the list are the typical DJs that have been on the radio and in the public for sometime such as David Guetta, Swedish House Mafia and Deadmau5. All of them reportedly made over $20 million thanks to gigs all over the world.

The biggest shocker on the list goes to Pauly D which everyone knows as that guy from that annoying show on MTV. Forbes calculates that the former MTV reality star made about $13 million this year by touring with the Backstreet Boys and Jesse McCartney across the country this summer.

While the list includes 12 names, there are actually 13 on the list. Pauly D tied Diplo for last place.

UK’s Dance Festival, Creamfields, Announces Headliners

Creamfields2013

Creamfields has been dubbed “the world’s leading dance music festival” by organizers and they are definitely sticking to that by scheduling some of the world’s biggest DJs to come and perform at the dance festival. The Prodigy, Tiesto, Avicii and David Guetta have all been confirmed to be performing at the three day music festival.

The Prodigy are set to headline the show on Saturday, this being their only summer festival appearance in Britain. While The Prodigy performs at one of the two main stages of the event, Avicii will be taking the DJing duties at the other main stage on Saturday. On Sunday, Tiesto and David Guetta will be taking the main stages as their own.

While these are just some of the names of the DJs on the list, there are many more such as Groove Armada, Richie Hawtin, Paul Oakenfold, Pete Tong, Afrojack, Ferry Corsten, Benny Benassi, Sasha, and Baauer who we all know as the mastermind producer behind the “Harlem Shake.”

Last year, there was an issue with flooding caused by a storm which led to acts such as Deadmau5, Tiesto and others not being able to perform. But this year, organizers say that they spent a lot of money to make sure that such a thing did not happen again so that everyone who attends don’t miss out because of a little rain.

Creamfields will be taking place in Daresbury Aug. 23–25.
