Coachella 2017: Listen To Performances By Porter Robinson & Madeon, Kaytranada, DJ Snake & More

coachella 2017

With Coachella 2017 weekend one in the books, we felt it was only appropriate if we share with you the sets from some of our favorite acts who played. Everyone from Kendrick to Kaytranada to DJ Snake to Gryffin threw down and brought out some special guests.

Just like the first weekend, weekend two will be live-streamed on YouTube. Be sure to catch your go-to artists, as well as some others you may not be as familiar with. We were especially impressed with Hans Zimmer's epic set which featured a full-on orchestra and guest appearance from Pharrell. You never know what to expect at Coachella...

Check out the record sets from weekend one at Coachella 2017 below and enjoy!

Cashmere Cat Drops Experimental New Single "9 (After Coachella)" Feat. MØ & SOPHIE

cashmere cat and mo [2]

Last month, Cashmere Cat shared his single with Camila Cabello called "Love Incredible". This month he's back with a new track called "9 (After Coachella)" feat.  and SOPHIE. The song starts out with a playful xylophone melody that's taken over by thick bass synths, hard claps and MØ's airy vocals.

Then the track takes a 180-degree spin by going into this abstract, raw click-clacking sequence. The contrast between the drop and the rest of the song couldn't be greater so be sure to embrace it and roll with it. The song has entirely different sections that sound entirely different but so well together as Cashmere Cat and SOPHIE show off their experimental production abilities.

"9 (After Coachella)" seems to end around the 3-minute mark, but then continues on with a beautiful melodic sequence comprised of soft organ keys, orchestral strings and vocoded vocals. Listen to the song below and let us know what you think of the unique release by Cashmere Cat. Enjoy!

The Parties Behind Coachella, Bonnaroo & More Want To Throw A Coachella-Like Festival In Colorado

Overland Park Gold Course, Denver

The iconic Red Rocks Amphitheater might be one of Colorado's most popular contributions to the music world, but that might be changing in the near future with the recent news of a Coachella-like festival popping up in Denver.

Superfly, the company behind festivals like Bonnaroo and Outside Lands, alongside AEG, the massive live music company that owns Goldenvoice who is responsible for producing Coachella are planning (or at least hoping) to throw a multi-million dollar festival on Overland Park Gold Course in Denver. Chuck Morris, CEO of AEG Live Rocky Mountains says this project has actually been in the works since 2010 and sees major potential here.

Denver-based publication Westword describes Morris' vision for the event as being one "with multiple stages and a bevy of musical acts, akin to Coachella, if slightly smaller, at least in the beginning." Whether or not this will all go down on the golf course has yet to be figured out and Morris says he's "looking at all options".

"Morris and his colleagues see potential — not just in run-of-the-mill stadium concerts, but in creating a festival experience with multiple stages and a bevy of musical acts, akin to Coachella, if slightly smaller, at least in the beginning." -- Westword

Neighborhood activists voiced their concerns at a city meeting earlier this week about a festival taking place in their community. Mayor Michael Hancock's team seemed to be for it thought as they mentioned it could bring in upwards of $2.5 million.

As of yesterday (Feb. 2) though, Denver isn't the only city up for consideration. Westminster, about 10 miles north of Denver, is the other spot in the running and seems very eager to make the festival happen. AEG and Superfly have yet to make a decision on which city they'd be moving forward with, but mentioned that they've had to jump through more hoops with Denver's approval process so far. 

The three-day event is looking to attract 30,000 to 60,000 people and would take place in Fall 2018 over one weekend, closing up shop by 10pm each night. However, event organizers would need five weeks to set everything up and break it down.

Stay tuned for more details as this multi-day festival.
