Folks, today is May 25, so that leaves us with only one week of May to go, and if you haven’t noticed, the summer festival season is getting into full swing. As a result, we uncovered some tour news that you might want to take note of. Peep it below!
Made in America
This year, Made in Amerca, a new two-day music festival, will be held in Philadelphia’s Fairmount Park on September 1 and 2. This Budweiser-sponsored festival has tapped none other than Jay-Z to curate the event. Thus, it makes sense that Hova will close out the second day of the festival while Pearl Jam will close out the first day. The initial lineup includes D’Angelo, Skrillex, Rick Ross, Passion Pit, Santigold, Miike Snow, Odd Future Wolf Gang Kill Them All (OFWGKTA), Janelle Monáe and Dirty Projectors. Also part of the phase one announcement is Calvin Harris, Afrojack, Wale, Meek Mill, X, Prince Royce, Rita Ora, Savoy, and The Knocks. Expect the lineup’s second phase to be announced soon.
Austin City Limits
The Austin City Limits music festival held annually in Zilker Park in Austin, TX will take place this year on October 12, 13 and 14, and just this week announced its lineup. The Black Keys, Neil Young and Crazy Horse, as well as the Red Hot Chili Peppers get top billing with Jack White, Florence & the Machine, the Avett Brothers serving as sub-headliners. Other names on the lineup include Avicii, Childish Gambino, The Roots, Weezer, Iggy and the Stooges, Bassnectar and M83. Unfortunately, general admission three-day and single-day passes are sold out, but V.I.P. passes and travel packages are still available.

After its maiden voyage this last winter, Holy Ship!! will set sail yet again for the Bahamas beginning January 4-7. After much anticipation, the lineup announcement finally came this week. Justice, Boys Noize, Knife Party and Major Lazer are among the headliners. Skream & Benga, A-Trak, Crookers, Busy P, Dillon Francis and other dance music heavyweights round out the bill. Pre-booking reservations have already sold out, but you can still register to be put on the waiting list. More info on that can be found here.
While we impatiently wait as The XX puts the finishing touches on the long awaited follow-up to its much-acclaimed self-titled debut album, the band has started to perform at festivals and clubs throughout Europe. The group has even performed new songs at these performances, and now fans in the U.S. can look forward to a few dates in late July. Scope out the info on those dates, and the rest of The XX’s tour schedule on its eventseekr profile.
