Treasure Island Music FestivalTickets

 

Day splits are here! While TIMF boasts the most wonderful feature of staggered set times so attendees never have to miss an act, there’s still much else to do by way of exploring or silent disco-ing. That said, we highly recommend you find a good spot for the following acts. Also, remember to bring a jacket or a thick beer coat – it gets windy past sundown.

 

Saturday – 10|15
It’s been wonderful seeing HONNE evolve into the silky smooth love struck duo they are today.

HONNE x Izzy Bizu – Someone That Loves You

 

Having seen Mura Masa once before in an intimate setting, we can definitely recommend you catch hold and flow with his passionate beats surrounded by island rays.

Mura Masa ft. Nao – Firefly

 

Sunday – 10|16
We’ve given the girls of HINDS (fka. Deers) so much attention – and for good reason. They’re spunky and they put on a damn good show.

HINDS – Bamboo

 

Perhaps the only artist truly suited for TIMF, Tycho‘s brand of chilled electronic instrumentals mixed with the crisp sea breeze and sunshine is reason enough to attend.

Tycho – Division

Tickets

 

For the past three years, perhaps no other name has seen as fruitful a rise into LA’s underground than the team at Minimal Effort. What began as a weekday party out of a small bar off Cahuenga has evolved to what comes to pass on October 29, 2016. To celebrate All Hallow’s Eve, Minimal Effort rolls out the black carpet at LA Center Studios for a soirée led by some of the heralds of today’s house and techno scene.

 

Taste Maker Pete Tong, Pleasure Pusher Tiga, Crate Digger TEED (DJ Set), Soul Minimalist Satori, and more will spend the day shaping sounds as we celebrate our loved ones – both living and supernatural. Remember: assume whichever role you so wish, but be sure to wear it strongly. We’ll see you in the darkness.

Symbiosis Gathering | Lineup | Tickets

 

After last year’s incredible experience, we’ve been hard pressed to find anything else quite like Symbiosis Gathering. It is perhaps the most relaxing and open culture we’ve ever been a part of. Lend it to the playa decompression vibes or end of summer last hoo-rah or what have you; it will always hold a special place in our hearts. And with 2016 being the last time it’s being hosted at the Woodward Reservoir (please let there be an ample swimming hole at the next venue!), there’s little in the way of deciding whether to go or not. That is to say, DO NOT MISS IT.

Today, Alex Ridha aka BOYS NOIZE announces a 15-date North-American tour. The trek starts on October 5th on the West Coast in Los Angeles and will go via Vancouver and Seattle to playing two nights in New York, followed by Miami, Boston, Suwannee Hulaween in Florida and ends with Austin’s Sound on Sound (ex-Fun Fun Fun Fest). The tickets are available Thursday, August 11th href=”http://www.boysnoize.com/#!tour/ofgvv”>HERE.

 

This tour comes Hot off the heels of Alex’s most recent album release, Mayday. Mayday is Boys Noize´s most dynamic album to date. Collaborations with Poliça, Hudson Mohawke, Benga, Remy Banks, Spank Rock, and some special secret guests broaden the range while maintaining the classic rugged-n-raw BOYS NOIZE style. You can check out our review of MAYDAY href=”http://www.controlaltdelight.com/?s=boys+noize”>here. **Spoiler Alert** We fucking loved it!

 

We are really excited for this tour as Alex is one of our favorites DJ’s in the electronic landscape today. His live shows surely will not be ones to miss as Boys Noize stage production and visuals are always top notch. SUS BOY and LIL INTERNET provide to aesthetics exploring a thematic narrative inspired by cyberpunk, 80’s industrial and surveillance in contemporary society.

Event InfoTickets

 

UR Art is the brainchild of Rob Garza (Thievery Corporation), Philipp Jung (M.A.N.D.Y), and John Wander. The Santa Monica based Summer festival series is now in its third year and continues to draw attention to its message of sustainable power, artistic freedom, and community wellness. On top of that, the series features leading musicians from the deeper spectrum of house and techno under the open air of a beach city sun.

 

All of this is hosted inside Bergamot Station, a re-purposed train station now art center. This Sunday (July 3rd) will feature John Tejada, Hoj, Clint Stewart, and WXC (John Wander b2b Luke Cheadle). Come through to celebrate freedom, art, music, and social purpose.

Treasure Island Music FestivalTickets

 

 

Treasure Island 2016 is happening! For its 10-year anniversary, this lovely island festival was almost a no-go. Luckily, the city and event planners were able to make it happen. We can’t reiterate enough how great this compact festival is. 2 stages. 1 silent disco. No set-time over lap. Smaller crowds. A whole lot of sea breeze to cap off the indian Summer. The lineup this year is as exceptional as always; featuring artists from all across the spectrum.

 

 

Of all the festivals we’ve been to, this one is definitely among the easiest to survive and relaxing to be a part of. Tickets are still on sale! Do NOT miss your chance to go to this festival its last time on the actual island.

Woogie Weekend | Lineup | Tickets

 

Now in its second year as a standalone festival, Woogie Weekend continues to gather artists that could hold their own on parent festival LIB‘s lineup. The event is even hosted at LIB’s former home: Oak Canyon Park, Silverado Canyon. Anyone who’s stopped by the Woogie stage at LIB knows the sound and the vibe: funky and carefree during the day; deep and dark at night. And this year’s lineup is definitely influenced by a playa touch. Luckily, there’s water all around to help manage that hot summer sun (or an unpredictable muddy cuddle puddle a la 2015).

 

The event runs July 8-10, 2016 with 2-day and Sunday tickets available, so there’s really no reason not to check out at least Sunday (Rampue, Rodriguez Jr., Kidnap Kid, and TEED are among our must sees of the weekend). With a lineup this good at a $160 all weekend ticket price, this is perhaps the most “worth it” festival bill we’ve seen this year.
