“Finally!” I thought after seeing the lineup for “The Big Orlando” festival coming Sunday, December 7 2014 to Central Florida Fairgrounds. This inaugural year’s lineup includes Weezer, Fall Out Boy, Young The Giant, Dirty Heads, J. Roddy Walston & The Business, Bear Hands, Big Data, Twin Atlantic, Islander, one mystery guest (who we suspect might be Alt J), and more TBA according to The Big Orlando website (www.thebigorlando.com).

We’re no strangers to annual Florida music festivals put on by local radio stations like 97X’s “Next Big Thing” festival in Tampa and X102.9’s “Big Ticket” festival in Jacksonville. Orlando has often prayed to receive many of the bands on those bills while they’re passing through and we normally get most of them, presented in a more intimate form like a club show. But now, from the kind folks at Orlando’s New Alternative radio station X107.3, we are presented with “The Big Orlando” festival and Orlandoans gets all of those bands at once!

Pre-Sale General Admission tickets cost $34.50 and go On Sale Friday September 19 at 10:00 am EST and end Sunday September 21 at 11:59pm.

The Pre-Sale Password is: FOBWEZ
 
General Admission tickets officially go on sale to the general public on Monday September 22 at 12:00 am EST and will cost $39.50

They are offering Military Discounts (available during pre-sale), General Admission 4 packs for $119, and VIP packages (available during pre-sale) for $89.50 which include access to a VIP lounge area featuring a dedicated bar, beverage and food service, premium viewing of the Main Stage, a seated area with shade for dining and drinking, and of course private restroom facilities. 

All ticket prices are plus service fees and tax.

Central Florida Fairgrounds are located at: 4603 West Colonial Dr, Orlando, FL 32803. The gates open at 11:00 AM on day of show.

Judging by my past years of attending Warped Tour at Central Florida Fairgrounds, it is unlikely this festival will sell out but I would get my tickets NOW, because this is a fucking beautiful lineup!

ProbCause's latest single, "Pale Moonlight," is a melancholy, jazz-infused soundscape that features trumpeter Donnie Trumpet and vocalist KSRA, with additional production by Wes P. "Jewels, brilliantine/Stardom and majesty/Like a king to riches, pursue the brilliant skin that's me/Cause I can't scream that loud - I'ma treasure - quiet like Chicago crowds," sings KSRA on the song's chorus. ProbCause explains, "she's basically talking about being out on the town, all done up and knowing that she's a queen whether other people know it or not.
Reunite for the Night" is the latest single from Dizzy's recently released State of Mind EP, which XXL calls, "a quality offering from an MC that has tasted success and wants more." Adding on to the critical praise, HotNewHipHop says that "much of the EP has a smoothed out feel, a signature sound from the stoner, but he did provide songs that could move a crowd, perhaps even more than usual." In support of the EP's release, Dizzy just began a 19-city State of Mind tour, which is sponsored by Scion AV.
OutKast will headline along with Arctic Monkeys and Cake. Including some great acts, such as Future Islands, Washed Out, and more. The event takes place at Forest Park in St. Louis, September 6th - 7th. You can see the official line up and purchase tickets by clicking the link above.
Malka Spigel, which has an official release with the EP "Gliding" on the Swim~ label available now.. Enjoy the trippy, kaleidoscopic and time-lapse sequences shot around LA and London last year, edited to Malka's shoegaze/dream pop sound, and visually inspired by her richly colorful Lomo stills

Cole, Grimes, De La Soul, Danny Brown, YG, Holy Ghost!, and Young & Sick — earlier this afternoon. Now the first LA edition of Made In America, which will happen simultaneously with the Philly fest on 8/30-31
Polyvinyl Records and American Football's deluxe edition reissue of the influential Chicago/Urbana, IL band's seminal self-titled 1999 debut album is finally available.

2xLP (Red Vinyl), 2xCD, cassette tape, and digital formats the deluxe edition reissue features beautifully expanded packaging and incorporates new photographs from Chris Strong along with lyrics, detailed liner notes written by the band, and never-before-seen band pictures.

This fall the band will reunite for their first live shows since disbanding 15 years ago, playing The Pygmalion Festival as well as three sold-out shows at Webster Hall in New York City. The incredible excitement surrounding the late '90s indie rock trio's - Mike Kinsella (Cap'n Jazz, Owen, Owls), Steve Lamos, and Steve Holmes - album reissue and reunion shows was on full display when American Football's three night run at Webster Hall in NYC this October surprised many by selling out in a matter of minutes. Even the band were taken aback. "We had no idea," Kinsella told Noisey of their shock in a recent interview. "We played to like 40 people, at our biggest show ever, in a basement back in the day."
