Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival has revealed the full line-up for its two weekends, which are set to take place from 14th to 16th and 21st to 23rd April at Empire Polo Field in Indio, California.
Both weekends feature the same line-up, and are headlined by Radiohead, Beyoncé and Kendrick Lamar.
A dance heavy programme also sees Martin Garrix, Dillon Francis, Steve Angello, DJ Snake, Porter Robinson & Madeon, DJ Khaled, Marshmello, Galantis, Kaytranada, Tale of Us, Nicolas Jaar, Bonobo and many more all join.
Steve Angello has revealed that he is set to release a new solo album in 2017, as well as teasing the first track from it. You can listen to it at the end of the two-hour mix below.
The Swedish House Mafia man announced the news on his final BBC Radio 1 Residency show, with the first new material from the as-yet-untitled album being ‘Stay’, featuring Saints Of Glory.
Speaking about the album on his show, Angello said, “I’m going to be taking a break from Radio 1 next, as I’ve got a pretty busy 2017 planned.
Swedish House Mafia will reunite and tour together in 2017, according to US music magazine Billboard.
Miami's Ultra Music Festival (where SHM members Axwell & Ingrosso are already on the line-up) is rumoured to be the first stop, as well as New York and Los Angeles dates later next year.
The news is via 'multiple sources close to the situation' says Billboard, though the group's manager Amy Thomson has categorically denied a reunion is on the cards.
Ex-Swedish House Mafia member and Size records boss, Steve Angello, is being sued for fraud, reports Swedish newspaper Expressen.
He's allegedly up for a whopping 116 million Swedish Krona (roughly 13 million USD) in damages, with the claims submitted by a former "artist colleague and a former business partner" of the producers.
UPDATE: Axwell has since tweeted “doesn’t take much more than a wise guy with photoshop (sic) to start a rumour,” suggesting that he never shared the post in the image below.
Axwell has hinted that Swedish House Mafia are set to reform in a post on Twitter that has since been deleted.
In the tweet, which you can see a screenshot of below, Axwell stated, “The countdown to the new era has begun. Never is too late (sic) to get back on track,” alongside the date Sunday 26th March 2017 – the Sunday of next year’s Ultra Music Festival.
The Flying Dutch festival’s Swedish Journey event has been cancelled amidst uncertainty over whether Avicii would show up to perform, despite the fact that Steve Angello, Alesso, John Dahlbäck, Icona Pop and more were on the bill.
The festival was set to take place on Saturday 30th July at The Hague, Nijmegen, but Alda Events, who run the festival, issued a statement on their website last night (Thursday), announcing that it would not be going ahead.
QUALITY OVER QUANTITY
"Main focus for us has always been to sign records that we feel proud of, or will feel proud of in 10 years. We've sidetracked at times but we find our way back shortly thereafter. When every artist in the world wants to be successful they forget the quality factor. We try to ground ourselves with enough criticism towards ourselves that we maintain the level of quality we expect from others, and as a label we thrive on originality and authenticity."
Steve Angello and Steve Aoki will headline the Northern Lights festival in Newcastle. The festival will take place at Exhibition Park between 30th and 31st May.
Ghetto house specialists Amine Edge & Dance also feature on the main stage of the event, which will be hosted by Elektriqa.
