As we’re headed into Labor Day it’s time to give our August wrap-up!
We hope everyone out at Electric Zoo is having a blast. Stay safe and have the time of your lives!
There are some pretty awesome shows going on as well. We’re headed out to see Alesso at Echostage in DC. We’ll be sure to get some pictures and tell you all about it when we get back.
New Music We Can’t Get Enough Of
A few songs really caught our attention this month. Enjoy!
The Chainsmokers also released a song titled “Closer” that we like, but for some reason they don’t have the full version available on Soundcloud. You can see the video here though.
The Headline That Caught Our Attention
The big one of course is that Avicii played his last show ever (supposedly) over the weekend. He’s openly talked about how he doesn’t like the social aspect of touring and is known to cancel his dates.
This is a great way for him to focus on making music without feeling pressured to tour. I’m sure he’ll play shows in the future, but they’ll be few and far between. In the meantime we’re excited about the stuff he’s going to release with his next album.
What was RaveRookie.com up to in August?
We really just started putting the site together this past month. Our hope is that it turns into your go-to for everything EDM and music festival related. We probably won’t post nearly as much news day to day as the other guys, but we’ll get you ready to have the time of your life when you’re getting ready for a festival or show.
We just published the ultimate music festival packing list because, let’s face it, making the trip out to a festival and realizing you left things you need at home sucks.
We’ll be adding a ton of new content this month so stay tuned!
