Pete Wentz’s DCD2 to Launch Music Fest


What happens when you combine some of the biggest artists signed to Pete Wentz DCD2 (formerly known as Decaydance Records)?

Simple; one hell of a festival that will have those that grew up alongside Decaydance and their artists looking for flights to Mexico.

DCD2 have revealed plans for Hydra Fest, a four-day hotel festival vacation slated to take place from April 15 to April 19 in Mexico. Included in the package are:  performances, a Q&A session, meals and drinks as well as room and board at the Hard Rock Riviera Maya.

Fall Out Boy, Panic! at the Disco, Travie McCoy, New Politics and newcomer LoLo (the female on Panic!’s “Miss Jackson”) are all confirmed.

Check out all the details for the newly established festival below and maybe, just maybe we can find a way to get there (where can we apply for press passes?).

If not, here’s to working our bums off for the next year.

“Hydra Fest brings Fall Out Boy fans together to enjoy four awesome nights of music at Hard Rock Hotel Riviera Maya.  In addition to two full shows and an acoustic set with a Q&A session from Fall Out Boy, the Fest will also feature two shows each from Panic! At the Disco, Travie McCoy, New Politics, as well as music from LOLO.

More than just a run of shows, Hydra Fest is the ultimate rock & roll getaway with epic live performances for 2,500 lucky fans, who will stay on-site at the resort with all meals, drinks, concerts and most activities included in the price of the package. 

With shows that overlook a breathtaking view of the Caribbean Sea at Hard Rock Hotel Riviera Maya’s spectacular digs, Hydra Fest will be a singular chance to see FOB & the DCD2 family in an incredible setting.”

Travie McCoy Releases “Keep On Keeping On”


Like we said earlier, the official music video for the track which featured both Travie and Brendon has been released today. Watch it here:


Travie McCoy is currently streaming a new track today titled, “Keep On, Keeping On” and it looks like he asked for a little help from label mate, Panic! at the Disco’s Brendon Urie.

Last year, the former Gym Class Heroes frontman worked with Jason Mraz on “Rough Water,” a track that was to be featured on his second solo album also titled Rough Water. The album is supposed to be coming out sometime in 2014, but as of yet, there’s no word about it.

As for “Keep On Keeping On,” the track is currently available on iTunes while the official music video is set to be released sometime today. As for whether or not the song will be featured in McCoy’s yet to be released album, there has been no word about that, but the chances are very likely.

Listen to the song below and tell us what you think about the collaboration.
