About ULTRA MUSIC FESTIVAL:
Tapped “Best Overall Event” by URB.COM and heralded by the Los Angeles Times as bringing “out raucous revelers as well as electronica’s elite,” UMF has also won “Best Music Event” by the International Dance Music Awards (IDMA) in 2009, 2008, 2007 & 2005, “Best International Dance Music Festival” by the Ibiza DJ Awards in 2008 and “Best Festival” by the Village Voice Media New Times consecutively five years running from 2005 through 2009.

Together with the addition of Adam Russakoff five years ago, Ultra has grown to present not only the genre’s hottest, biggest and best headline artists (The Prodigy, The Chemical Brothers, Tiesto, Underworld, MOBY, Fatboy Slim, Carl Cox, Paul van Dyk, David Guetta, Armin Van Buuren, Erick Morillo, Deadmau5 and Paul Oakenfold), but also crossover headline bands that incorporate EDM elements in their music and have a history, or new beginning in the EDM community (The Cure, The Killers, The Black Eyed Peas, Santogold, The Ting Tings, The Bravery).

In addition to the annual Miami festival, UMF is continuing to expand internationally. Look for more upcoming UMF events in Brazil, Ibiza and other locations around the world.

Finally Wilco [The Tour] is coming to South Florida. The poly-phasic Chicago band will be playing on the Fillmore at the Jackie Gleason theater on Monday March  22nd. This show is long overdue given the great amount of fans that the band has in Miami. Wilco has been making music since 1994 as a band as before that Jeff Tweedy, singer and souls of the band, was playing in the alternative country band Uncle Tupelo.  Their music is very eclectic, it ranges from alternative rock to Country, and it has earned the band to comparisons to Radiohead among many influential bands. Below you’ll find complete Tour Dates for the USA.

Tickets are available at the box office or at www.livenation.com.

SoyPrensa will be covering this event and bringing you a review of Wilco [The Concert].

Here’s the Trailer of the DVD: Wilco Live Ashes of American Flags to get our fix until the show:

Arte Contemporáneo — Al equipo de dirección se ha incorporado este año el Comisario Artístico Jota Castro, artista franco-peruano afincado en Bruselas. A través
de la fotografía, la escultura, el vídeo y las instalaciones Jota aborda distintos problemas sociales reinterpretando hechos conectados con la actualidad y sus experiencias personales.

Reflexión – VOCES unirá este año a un espectro más amplio de profesionales: economistas, sociólogos y filósofos se darán cita en el festival bajo el lema ¿Y ahora qué?

El Año SOS 4.8 dará comienzo en enero y las acciones de danza, música, cine y literatura irán multiplicando su duración, hasta llegar a las 48 horas consecutivas y sin

Terra incognita

Terra incognita Juliette Lewis visitá España la próxima semana para presentar su nuevo disco ¨Terra Incognita.¨    Como se recuerda, Juliette dejó de lado su carrera como actriz para irrumpir en la escena musical  con su disco debut ¨You´re speaking my language¨, a este le siguió ¨Four on the Floor¨ que fué muy bien recibido por la critica musical. Ahora, ya con muchos festivales a sus espaldas, Juliette llega de la mano del productor  Omar Rodriguez Lopez  (The Mars Volta) con una nueva producción cuyo sonido Juliette define como: “completamente diferente a lo que he podido hacer antes y captura la esencia de mis emociones y de mi voz, necesitaba una banda totalmente nueva. Terra Incognita significa territorio desconocido, y es ahí exactamente donde queríamos ir musicalmente. Las guitarras suenan más salvajes y atmosféricas. El groove es oscuro y profundo, lo que aporta un gran contraste a nivel de sonido. Omar ha entendido todas las facetas y ha sabido interpretar esta idea musical. Ha sido una experiencia realmente liberadora y radical.”

Tres fechas en España. Si aún no has escuchado el disco, te dejamos el link de Spotify, el disco está genial!

Saludos!

Austin City Limits went down last October in the music capital of the south Austin.  The festival lasted for three days and more than 150 bands took the stage including the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Kings of Leon, DevotchKa and the headliner band Pearl Jam. The show was marked by the rain but that didn’t stop concert goers to enjoy themselves in a fun and peaceful manner.

The festival was completly sold out and gave a lot of the bands a great chance to play their music for bigger crows  than they ussually do, including Kings of Leon and Phoenix, bands that actually aknowledge this fact.  Overall it was a great festival and a great role model for smaller festivals to follow.

Como todos los años, el Festival de Blues de Cerdanyola fue todo un éxito, estuvimos en la apertura del evento con Mendetz en la sala Acme y en el cierre Blues and BBQ, donde se congregó una multitud a pasar un buen rato, con rica comida y mucho Blues. El cartel estuvo inmejorable: The Deans, Demian Band, Nick Curran y Chico Ocaña. Con todos ellos estuvimos, y tambien con el organizador que nos brindó una linda entrevista. Todo esto en los proximos días, de momento les regalamos algunas fotos del evento, saludos!
