Bon Iver have canceled their upcoming European tour behind 22, A Million. In a note on the band’s website, it is pointed out that the tour has been scrapped for “personal reasons.” Bon Iver will refund all tickets and, as of now, have no plans to reschedule the canceled tour dates. Their festival appearances at this year’s Coachella, and at Primavera in Spain are still set to happen. Check out the note below.
The line-up for the 2017 edition of the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival is here. Like last year, this year’s trio of headliners—Radiohead, Beyoncé, and Kendrick Lamar—come as no surprise seeing as they leaked several months ago.
That aside, the line-up has its share of surprises. Case in point: Hans Zimmer. Yes. The film composer Hans Zimmer. This performance is one I’m looking forward to seeing. Other surprises of note come in the form of Toots & the Maytals, Lee Fields and the Expressions, and Röyksopp. Other notable artists performing at Coachella 2017 are, Bon Iver, The xx, Lorde, New Order, BANKS, Justice, The Avalanches, S U R V I V E, Four Tet, Richie Hawtin, Kaytranada, Mitski, and Car Seat Headrest.
For those who are looking to score a wristband for either weekend of Coachella, the remaining allotment goes on sale 1/4 at 10am. Good luck! If you need to some background music for your wait, click here.
Last night, Rage Against the Machine—who last played together in 2011– launched a new website, prophetsofrage.com, with a countdown leading to June 1. Visitors upon entering their email address receive an image that reads “Clear the way for the prophets of rage,” a lyric from the Public Enemy song “Prophets of Rage.”
The image features the hashtag “TakeThePowerBack,” which is the title of a Rage Against the Machine song. Whatever this ends up being is pure speculation at this point. Reunion? New album? Shows? The timing of it, though, could not be more perfect given that we’re in the middle of a volatile and hotly contested presidential election.
