Corona Capital Music Festival 2012 Lineup Released
The reasons to visit Mexico once in your life are endless. Those of us who have actually have Autumn and Winter (we speak not of Reverend Justito, who lives in a place that doesn’t know what weather is), would love to escape it. Why not take a weekend and spend a few Peso’s on some cheap blow and easily accessible sedatives while spending your evenings taking body shots of tequila off sexy senorita’s, chasing it with Dos Equis alongside the Most Interesting Man In The World. Yes, I’m thirsty my friends.
All kidding (or what we’ll call kidding to save face) aside, The Corona Capital Music Festival can be added to the list of reasons to visit. You can add the likes of The Black Keys, My Morning Jacket, Florence And the Machine will all be in Mexico City October 13th and 14th, along with a returning New Order, James Murphy (of LCD Soundsystem) and Sleigh Bells mixed in there as well. Hell, even the Wallflowers are on the bill.
For the full list of acts that you can’t read because the poster is weird, we got a list for you below:
HARD Summer Returns To A Dirt Lot Near Downtown Los Angeles
Editors Note: In case you could not tell our pal Reverend Justito likes to say heck no to techno. If this offends you then we did our job right.
Good news for E-tards in Southern California and beyond. The HARD Summer Festival is returning to that craptastic dirt lot adjacent to downtown Los Angeles. LA Weekly has broken the lineup and really you would have to be on HARD drugs to enjoy most of the acts. Highlights (if you can call them that) include Skrillex, Bloc Party and that dude who used to be in LCD Soundsystem. You have access to Google, so I am sure you can figure out when tickets go on sale, and hopefully no 15 year old kids die because it would be sad to see a news story here in Los Angeles not about the Lakers or Lindsay Lohan. Line-up is below the nifty viral video the HARD Summer folks made to request your presence at LA State Historic Park on August 3rd and 4th.

According to the Chicago Sun Times, we officially have a list of the performers that will take the stage for Lollapalooza 2012.
After cancelling numerous tour dates earlier this year due to illness of Tony Iommi, Black Sabbath will headline the festival that takes place in Chicago August 3rd-5th alongside Jack White, Red Hot Chili Peppers, and The Black Keys.
Don’t worry folks, everybody’s favorite reunited band At The Drive In will be there too, along with Avicii, Florence and The Machine, Justice and The Shins. And I guess it wouldn’t be a festival if Childish Gambino wasn’t involved.
