Frank Flakes

Just two days before Frank Ocean was set to appear at FYF Fest, he pulls out! His replacement? Kanye West of course. This is actually something that I’ve always wondered about having worked in the music industry, but I’ve never found the answer to. What happens when an artist flakes out on the lineup that they are supposed to be a part of? Does the artist leave the music festival organizers high and dry? Does the flaky artist help the organizers by coming up with a possible alternative for them like my interviewers do when they can’t make an interview? Unlikely. Does the artist get penalized/black listed from said music festival? I have so many questions.

However, the biggest question that I have is – where is Frank Ocean? He promised us that new album in July and we’re almost done with August. Now he’s pulled out of FYF which is making me even more concerned. Is the album not done? Will there even be an album? Honestly, I’ve been looking forward to this for a long time now and I hope that he’ll have a good reason for us when this is over.

Here’s the new FYF Lineup poster. Wow, those organizers worked really quick!

Outside Lands 2015

We’re not going! I’ve lived here for almost two years now and I still haven’t been to an Outside Lands. You’d think having come from Seattle that this would’ve been the first thing I would have done, but as strange as it is, it’s not. Does that mean I’m growing up? Having new interests? Over music? Probably not that last one. Actually after missing Outside Lands last year because my boyfriend at the time and I were too fatigued and kind of forgot to get tickets, I experienced just a little bit of FOMO. I was hoping that I’d want to go this year, but I wasn’t totally into the headliners especially after seeing Sam Smith this past February already. Though, I wasn’t willing to shell out the dough, I’m sure Outside Lands is still worth it. Everyone seems to like it so that says a lot! If I were going, here are the acts that I would see each day:


  • The Drums
  • Leon Bridges
  • Robert Delong
  • Chet Faker
  • Porter Robinson
  • D’Angelo and the Vanguard
  • Wilco


  • Misterwives
  • Classixx
  • Laura Marling
  • Toro Y Moi
  • G – Easy
  • Kendrick Lamar
  • The Black Keys


  • Givers
  • Ryn Weaver
  • Dan Deacon
  • Odesza
  • Hot Chip
  • Sam Smith


For the full lineup for each day, visit Outside Lands.

Lollapalooza 2015 Street Style

I was invited by a friend to go to Lollapalooza this year using an artist wristband for Tove Lo and it was the best invitation I had ever gotten. Festivals like Lollapalooza cost hundreds of dollars to attend when you include the ticket, the flights to Chicago, and the accommodations. I had never been to Chicago before and I was so excited to go until I realized I had a work event the same weekend. It was the biggest let down, but this was the closest I’d ever gotten to something like this and I don’t doubt that it won’t happen again. Maybe the next invitation will be even better! Street style at music festivals is one of my favorite things to cover because it’s not just about what you wear to the event, it’s about being comfortable and wearing something that is somewhat functional. Here’s how these attendees did Lollapalooza this past weekend and they’re basically nailing it:

Wireless Music Festival 2015

Oops! We totally dropped the ball on this music festival lineup when it was released. If you’re still looking for 4th of July plans, you can stream the festival through Yahoo! Music. We would really encourage you to get outside though, but I (more than most people) know that the want to catch your favorite artist’s set can be hi-pri at times.

Start streaming here.

Made in America 2015

Whoo! Not bad… I still remember watching the Made In America documentary last year and really enjoying it. An immense amount of work goes into creating a music festival and all of the little details are hidden so well from people that just attend and have no idea what goes on behind the scenes.

This isn’t the most amazing lineup I’ve seen, but it’s good for a new festival. We’re mostly featuring this because this poster is too cute and this festival just happened this past weekend.

Bumbershoot 2015 Lineup

Congratulations One Reel! I always seem to get the most excited about Bumbershoot over any other festival lineup and I think it’s just cause I’ve had such strong ties with it and growing up having attended so many years. This is a very exciting lineup though and every year there is such a good mix of mainstream acts along with local acts that are going to have incredible exposure during this weekend. Unfortunately, I won’t be attending for the second year in a row, but if I did, I would not miss Saturday or Monday.
