Nicky Romero Brings Back Festival Vibes with Close to His Heart Single “Okay” with MARF, featuring Wulf. Out now on Protocol Recordings


Since the beginning of his career, Nicky Romero has had a talent for creating emotive and yet danceable music that stirs deep emotions in the hearts of listeners, and his newest track “Okay” with fellow Dutchmen MARF and singer/songwriter Wulf is a prime example. Opening with soulful vocals and gentle melodies, it takes a gradual incline toward a classic, progressive buildup and a goosebump-inducing drop. The lyrics to “Okay” talk about the importance of checking in on your loved ones, which has become especially relevant to the artists during the pandemic that swept the globe last year. “Okay” follows Nicky‘s recent remix for Afrojack & David Guetta‘s “Hero.”

When it comes to the writing and production process, ‘Okay‘ was a very special track to work on together with MARF & Wulf. For me, it has become a song close to my heart. During these extraordinary times, the people that are close to me became more important than ever. The message behind ‘Okay‘ that we want to spread is that we should check on the people around us more often whether or not things are ‘okay.’ We should show them that we are there for them when they need us. Every line in the song has a deeper meaning, and I can’t wait to perform it live.” – Nicky Romero

Lately, I feel that the people around us tell each other they are okay, while actually they’re not. We hope that they can open up a little bit more about how they really feel after listening to “Okay,” because no matter how you feel, it is okay!” – MARF

It is cool to see different musical worlds colliding, and I am very happy with the unique connection I have with Nicky and MARF. We could feel it immediately, and I think you can feel it in the song as well. I already get goosebumps when I think of how “Okay” will sound live at a festival. Wouldn’t it be magical to hear everybody singing ‘together we’ll be okay, we will be okay‘?” – Wulf

After taking the world by storm with early hits such as “Legacy” with Krewella and the #1 single “I Could Be The One” with AviciiNicky Romero quickly proved that his talent is ever-evolving and here to stay. After launching his Protocol Recordings imprint in 2012, the renowned performer, producer, and label head continued his personal successes with a string of high-profile releases, ranging from collaborations with Armin van BuurenDavid GuettaDimitri Vegas & Like MikeW&WTimmy Trumpet and Steve Aoki to remixes for the likes of Robin SchulzKygoRita OraSteve AokiMartin GarrixJess Glynne and more. While showcasing his label’s roster via his weekly Protocol Radio show, Nicky Romero continues to innovate and evolve during these unprecedented times in the music industry. With the debut of his ultra-modern “Another World” live stream concept last summer and launch of Monocule alter-ego, Nicky Romero keeps proving his ability to turn into gold everything he touches.

One of the Dutch producer MARF‘s recent releases “Sweet Mistake” with KAAZE on Revealed Recordings amassed over 7M streams since its release. Never one to rest on his heels, his latest track “Miss You” with Tungevaag & Sick Individuals is his biggest success so far, having amassed over 11M streams and currently hitting the radio charts in multiple countries across Europe & in the USMARF has been supported by artists such Dimitri Vegas & Like MikeHardwellMike WilliamsSam FeldtLucas & SteveLost Frequencies, and many more.

Rounding out the single’s pristine vibes is Dutch singer/songwriter Wulf, with seven Top 40 hits to his name, including his collaboration “Summer On You” with Sam Feldt and Lucas & Steve (currently over 70M streams on Spotify alone). In 2019, he released his debut album with the hit “Mind Made Up” (over 25M streams), which stayed in the Top 40 for 15 consecutive weeks. He has also performed live alongside Afrojack during the Grand Final of Eurovision Song Contest in Rotterdam this year.

Why Beyoncé’s Homecoming is a Masterclass on Excellence


When Beyoncé hit the Coachella stage last year, many of us expected amazing live vocals, her iconic hits, and memorable choreography. Instead, when she hit the stage, the audience at Coachella and those watching online were left in awe when Beyoncé delivered more than just a regular performance. In a 105-minute set, Beyoncé presented a statement on Black culture and history. No one could’ve guessed one of the many songs she performed would be The Black National Anthem. No one expected Beyonce to have a full marching band (from Historically Black Colleges and Universities) to help lead her performance. And of course, no one expected a Destiny’s Child reunion.

Beyoncé’s Coachella performance was not only celebrated because of her amazing talent, but because it was a tribute to Black American culture. In the film, Beyoncé said she “wanted every person that has ever been dismissed because of the way they look to feel like they were on that stage.” And that night, she did just that.

A year later, Netflix set the internet on fire when they released the trailer for Homecoming. The trailer included a voiceover from Maya Angelou discussing the honor of representing her race through her art. Though Homecoming included the entire Coachella performance, there were interviews and rehearsal footage of Beyoncé sprinkled throughout. Those clips detail Beyoncé’s extensive eight-month rehearsal for the performance plus her journey post pregnancy. The excellence in Homecoming is not just the actual performance, but being able to witness what it takes to be the undisputed greatest performer of our generation.

In the film, not only do we hear Beyoncé struggle with her ridiculously strict diet post giving birth, but we witness her calling all the shots from the shape of the stage, the lights, and costumes, all the way down to the camera shots. We see Beyoncé hold meetings with her team demanding them to do better and then leave to take care of her two infant children. We hear Beyoncé, who we have crowned the Queen, doubt her performance abilities after giving birth to twins. Homecoming is a masterclass on excellence because Beyoncé never makes excuses nor does she slack off. She gathers her crew, has three sound stages and rehearses for eight months straight. Homecoming shows that the brilliance of Beyoncé does not come from magic, but from determination. Seeing the blood, sweat, and tears she puts into her performances and seeing her leave her heart out on that Coachella stage, reinforced the truth that Beyoncé has no equals.

It’s impossible to watch Beyoncé at her peak and not be inspired. However, the beauty of it is Beyoncé doesn’t make you want to be her, she inspires you to be the best version of yourself. She inspires women who watch her, to be excellent at whatever it is they do. Beyoncé shows women that there are no limits to the greatness within us.

Women Sound Off Festival Empowers Women of Color to Crush Their Goals


Following the enormous success of their event last year, the creative minds behind Women Sound Off are holding the popular festival once again. Women Sound Off emerged as a response to the lack of space for women and especially women of color within the music industry. The enthusiastic response quickly compelled WSO founders Carmena and Vang Elder to expand the festival to all industries with the intent of sharing advice and fostering sisterhood among women of color in a variety of creative and professional fields. The festival showcases many speakers and panels aimed at inspiring participants to achieve their goals, while also providing them with the skills – and hopefully the friends! – to do so. Women Sound Off runs April 5th-7th in Oakland, California.

Cliché: Your event was formerly known as Women in Music. What prompted the name change to Women Sound Off?

Carmena: We noticed that our attendees were people that worked in all industries and wanted to open up the festival to support and celebrate them as well.

Evangeline: There are so many women out there doing amazing things and we want to celebrate their accomplishments and encourage their growth, too. Women Sound Off is really about women across all industries who are hustling just like us.

Cliché also interviewed you when the festival debuted last year! What was the community response like?

Carmena: Our community has grown tremendously. We’re also seeing other groups creating spaces for WOC, and we couldn’t be happier with this. We’ve all been so supportive of each other to push for the ultimate goal of creating community & sisterhood.

Vang: It’s been really amazing to see how many people rally behind our mission and connect to what we’re doing. We’ve also seen our volunteer team become even more involved this year, and many have used the experience they gained with Women Sound Off last year to change their career path all together.

For those who don’t know, explain the inspiration and intention behind Women Sound Off.

Carmena: We were inspired by the lack of attention paid to the women in the music industry. We noticed there weren’t safe spaces for women to let loose and be celebrated, so we came together to create that for Oakland.

Vang: Carmena and I connected initially because we shared the desire to work with more women and celebrate the women working in the industry with us. We felt that this kind of community was really missing in the Bay Area.

Have you kept in touch with any participants from last year? How did the experience alter their perspective as creative artists?

Carmena: We’ve kept in touch with almost all panelists & performers. Many of them have gotten involved this year as well, and have helpful in helping us create another unique experience this year. We definitely see a lot of the artists honing in on their crafts and projects. They have also been so gracious and supportive of the rebranding.

Vang: We had overwhelmingly positive feedback from those who participated in the festival last year. One of the panelists told us it was one of the most rewarding professional experiences she’s had to date. We heard a resounding feedback that it was refreshing to connect with other women in the same industry in such a supportive environment. We’ve also heard that it was a strong reminder of how much their voice matters, especially to other womxn coming up in the industry.

Why is it so crucial to provide women of color their own spaces to network?

Carmena: It’s very rare that events like ours create spaces to actively include women of color or acknowledge intersectionality. We wanted to create that space.

Vang: Because these spaces don’t exist, we need to be our own role models and pass that knowledge on.

What advice would you give to women of color hoping to break into the music industry? Are there any words of wisdom you wish you could’ve given your younger selves?

Carmena: Keep working hard and be resilient to achieve all of your goals. Don’t give up, your time is soon to come. You’re already amazing.

Vang: Disregard the rules. Don’t believe everything you’re told because chances are that a man made the rules. So, question everything and remember that you really have more power than you think, especially when you’re charting uncharted territory.

On that note, the festival also features several speakers and panels. How did you go about selecting these women? What sort of guidance can they offer?

Carmena: Our Artist Relations does an amazing job at scouting womxn off season and meeting monthly in the planning session to do outreach. We also use our network to fulfill our tiers. All womxn we selected are badasses in their respective industries and can offer sound advice, inspiration, and encouragement to take the world head on.

What can we expect from the festival this year?

Carmena: You can expect to be blown away by the informative panels, dope experiences, and performances at WSO Concert. We’ve brought in women from all over the country to rejuvenate your energy so you and crush the rest of the year.

Vang: You can expect to tap into a beautiful community of womxn and leave inspired with tangible skills to help you tackle your goals. Plus, you’ll leave with some new friends to help support you along the way.

Outfits Ideas You Need To See For Coachella


Aside from the amazing music, festivities, and people at Coachella, we can’t help but get excited about the fashion side of it all. At Coachella, people around the world have the ability to freely express themselves through fashion and be comfortable in what they wear. And the best part is, everyone is looking and feeling great. The vibrant colors, unique accessories, abstract and floral patterns of Coachella fashionistas create the love and happiness in the atmosphere. Keep scrolling for outfit ideas you need to see for Coachella this year!

Let’s start with this metallic bralette paired with shorts for the beautiful weather you’re going to be in. Make this outfit pop with this blue and gold plated triangle Coachella necklace with a hint of orange in the middle.

I love this multi-pattern wide-cut pants. They have a combination of colors that complement each other. If you have, or want something similar, pair it with a solid crop top like this black one. Throw on a sunhat to accessorize!

This white crochet romper is one of my favorites because it’s so easy to slip on! And, it has Coachella written all over it. Instead of black, I’d wear a red bandana for a pop of color.

Tulle and lace–two of my favorite fabrics. This pink tulle overlay maxi skirt and white lace crop-top will surely give you a soft and simple look at Coachella.

If you feel like being edgy for Coachella, look at these ripped blue denim overalls worn with Converse, a plain white tank top, and a cap.

Don’t forget accessories! Sunglasses, cross-body bag, or a floral head piece. Coachella wouldn’t be Coachella without these babies.

Lollapalooza 2016 Recap


The 25th Anniversary of Lollapalooza took place July 28th-July 31st at Chicago’s Grant Park. It featured a star-studded line up night after night. With festivals of this calibre, there are so many good artists to see, but not enough time to see them all.

The first night had headliners J. Cole, Lana Del Rey, G-Eazy, and The 1975, but also Bastille, Cashmere Cat, and Kehlani. The 1975 performed “The Sound” and “Love Me” from their sophomore album, along with songs from their debut album.

The second night’s headliners were Major Lazer, Future (surprise Chance the Rapper cameo!), and Radiohead among others. Major Lazer’s set featured “Lean On” (MØ cameo), “Cold Water,” “Powerful,” “Be Together,” and remixes of Rihanna’s “Work” and “This is What You Came For.” A$AP Ferg, Alessia Cara, and MØ also performed on this night. During A$AP Ferg’s set, he performed a tribute to A$AP Yams, who died in 2015.

Saturday night’s headliners were dedicated to rock and alternative (with the exception of Disclosure). It featured the Red Hot Chili Peppers and Jane’s Addiction (who are the founders of the festival, first started in 1991). Leon Bridges, Vic Mensa, and Tory Lanez were also a part of Saturday night’s lineup.
The final night’s headliners were Ellie Goulding (“Anything Could Happen,” and “Love Me Like You Do”), Haim (featuring a cover of Prince’s “I Would Die 4 U”), Halsey (who performed “New Americana” and “Colors”), Flume, and LCD Soundsystem, along with appearances from Bryson Tiller (who won multiple BET awards in June), Years & Years, Vince Staples, and Snakehips (who just released a “Cruel” ft. ZAYN, which is really good).
And so closes Lolla 2016. May Lolla 2017 be bigger and better!

5 Music Festivals to Check Out this Summer


If you’re into music like I am, then we probably share the same dream of making it to the Coachella Music Festival in California someday. But fear not! There are many other great music festivals (some new, some old), that rival Coachella in awesome lineups and atmosphere. Festivals have become an easy way for many music lovers to see their favorite artists at reasonable prices. Here are 5 music festivals to check out this summer.

  1. Bonnaroo

The music and arts festival takes place this year from June 9th to June 12th in Manchester, Tennessee. This year’s headliners include: Pearl Jam, Dead & Company (which contains original members from legendary rock band Grateful Dead), LCD Soundsystem, and J.Cole, who is a little more hip-hop than rock and roll. While extremely popular, the Bonnaroo music festival is not the most budget friendly of festivals. General admission tickets start at $324.50 and range all the way to about $1600 if you require special VIP treatment. While the VIP option is steep, it offers up great amenities like showers, wifi, lounges, parking and early morning yoga classes to prepare you for the long festival day ahead. Bonnaroo also offers a VIP food program for $200 that gets you six meals (lunch and dinner) for the 4-day festival. If you refuse to miss out on these acts but can’t drop that much money all at once, they do offer a payment plan, which is very cool.

  1. Firefly Music Festival

Taking place at The Woodlands of Dover International Speedway in Delaware, The Firefly Music Festival is a 4-day festival which takes place this year from June 16th to June 19th. The best part about this festival? You don’t have to go home until it’s over! While tent camping is the most popular way to go, RV camping is also available for an additional fee. This festival has an eclectic lineup which includes Kings of Leon; Florence + The Machine; Deadmau5; Earth, Wind and Fire; and A$AP Rocky.  Tickets are priced at $129 for any single day entry and up to $349 for a 4-day pass. While waiting for your favorite acts to take the stage, the festival provides other attractions to pass the time. They have an outdoor bazaar to purchase festival goodies, “hammock hangout” if you need to rest, and The Beercade where, if you are over 21, you can indulge in beer and classic arcade games.

  1. Lollapalooza

With over 170 music acts and eight stages, Lollapalooza which takes place in Chicago’s historic Grant Park, running from July 28th to July 31st. As for headliners, J.Cole and LCD Soundsystem both make appearances at this festival, along with Lana Del Rey, Radiohead, and Future. Lollapalooza  rounds out the lineup with the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Disclosure, Jane’s Addiction, Ellie Goulding, Flume, Hiam, and Halsey. Festival goers can opt for a 4-day pass at $335 or a one day pass for $120. They have fans covered in the VIP department as well. For $650 (one day) or $2,200 (four day), you can enjoy air conditioning, lounges, catered food, and spa treatments. (Admit it, not all of us are equipped to take on harsh summer temps and hot dogs and hamburgers for four days.)

  1. Austin City Limits

The self-proclaimed “live music capital of the world,” the festival is held in Zilker Park in Austin, Texas. Produced by the same company that produces Lollapalooza, it was originally inspired by a PBS concert series of the same name. With over 130 performers and 8 stages, there will be plenty to see when the festival is on from September 30th to October 2nd and October 7th to October 9th. Headliners include: Kendrick Lamar, Mumford and Sons, Willie Nelson and Schoolboy Q. Ticket prices range from $100 for one day admission all the way to $3,600 for platinum packages, which include a hotel stay and on-site concierge.

  1. Summerfest

“The world’s largest music festival” definitely lives up to its name with its impressive lineup of artists that you want to see, headliner or not. Taking place in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, the impressive 11-day festival is the most budget-friendly that I have seen thus far. An 11-day pass will only cost you a whopping $90, and after June 1st the price rises to $110. You can also attend any one day of the festival for a mere $20. Have fun trying to choose who you are going to see this year, because  the lineup includes Sir Paul McCartney of The Beatles, Luke Bryan, Sting, Billy Idol, Nelly, Pitbull, Blink 182, Weird Al Yankovic, Common, Panic! At the Disco, Selena Gomez, DNCE, The Commodores, and Hollywood Vampires.
If your festival addiction isn’t satisfied with these five favorites, or if you are looking for a certain act, there are plenty more festivals to choose from. For a full list, click here.

The Top 8 Best Moments from the 2015 iHeartRadio Music Festival


If you’re a fellow music lover, you had to have known that the 2015 iHeartRadio Music Festival was this past weekend. Though tickets to see the festival live in Las Vegas were all sold out for both nights, music enthusiasts from around the globe were able to tune in live at Yahoo to stream the show and watch all of the exclusive backstage interviews! If you missed out on the glimmering opportunity to turn into the hypothetical person who decides to stay in all weekend, curled up in bed by herself to stream the live show from 10pm to 4am ET instead of socializing with friends (again, completely hypothetical situation/person and definitely not me), don’t worry because we summed up the top 8 best moments to share with you! 
1. When Sam Smith Brought on Disclosure
If you have yet to listen to Sam Smith perform live, I am seriously questioning your priorities. Okay, maybe this was my first time hearing him live, but his opening was the perfect way to set the pace for the rest of the night. Beginning his set with one of his many hit singles, “I’m Not the Only One.” His voice was flooded with emotion, so much so that you could almost feel your heart ache as he sung about his. What is music, really, if it isn’t a form of art that makes you feel something? Sam Smith just happens to take that to another level. When he brought on Disclosure to perform alongside him with “Latch” and their hit collaboration “Omen,” I knew this night was going to be a good one!     
2. Coldplay Colored the World…with Confetti
The second act of night one, Coldplay, kicked off their set with “Paradise.” Their music, colorful as ever, alongside their energetic vibes, transferred over to the audience like never before. There’s a feeling of promise that Coldplay creates with their music and listening to them live only heightens that exact feeling. Drowning the stage with an overflow of confetti only made the experience more entrancing, even if you were just watching it on your computer screen like little old me. It was, however, unfortunate for the janitors who spent until the waking hours of the morning to clean it all up. Oops!
3. Demi Lovato Goes ‘90s Old School
Kicking off her set with her hit single “Cool for the Summer” got everyone moving and grooving, but the real zinger was when she brought Third Eye Blind’s lead singer, Stephan Jenkins, up on stage with her to perform “Jumper” together! If you’re someone who jams out to tunes from the ‘90s, this performance was completely in your element, as it was mine.
4. Jennifer Lopez Announced the Title of her Las Vegas Residency
JLo brought a lot of excitement to night two with her killer choreographed dance moves and booty shaking skills. Never in my life have I longed for fluent Spanish-speaking skills more than when she brought on Alvaro Soler to sing alongside her for her new song, “El Mismo Sol.” She also let us in on details of her residency in Las Vegas, telling us the show would be titled “All I Have” and giving us a sneak peak of the artwork! Busting out some more dance moves, JLo finished off her set with “Jenny from the Block,” a classic throwback tune that made the audience go wild. Everything from her on-stage costume changes (apparently that’s a thing you can do – what?!) to her choreographed numbers were perfection. Jenny from the block has done it again and we were all left amazed after her number!
5. Prince Royce Serenaded a Fan
Not only did night two involve a lot more dancing, but it also had a lot more shirtless men on stage, and I for one, am not complaining! Prince Royce, of course, happened to be one of them. The (second) best part of his set was when he brought a fan on stage and serenaded her with “The Lucky One.” You are lying to yourself if you didn’t wish you were her the whole time!
6. Puff Daddy Surprised us with a Million Guest Performers
Puff Daddy, or P. Diddy (same person, different names, more confusion – AH) came on stage for the sole purpose of giving the audience a show to remember. From bringing Mase on stage to perform “Feel So Good,” Busta Rhymes to perform “Jump Jump” and “Put Your Hands Where My Eyes Could See,” Machine Gun Kelly with “A Little More,” and Lil Kim joining him to sing “It’s All About the Benjamins,” we thought that was all we needed… until he brought out Tori Kelly who sung a duet cover of “I’m Coming Home” with him! His set was unbelievable and being the crowd pleaser he always his, this night was no exception!
7. Nick Jonas Announced When his New Album will be Released
Nick Jonas drove the crowd crazy when he took the stage, starting off his set with “Chains.” I have two questions: 1) Where do I get to sign up to become one of the dancers who get to feel up Nick Jonas? 2) Does the criteria for signing up include knowing how to dance? While I continue to ponder, let’s talk about his biggest surprise of the night: He did not join the shirtless man club that was formed that night, sigh. But the good news is, he announced when his newest album will be released! Backstage, he revealed that it will come out early 2016, which isn’t very far away, and if it’s anything like his last one, we are all in for a treat!  
8. Fall Out Boy Collaborates with Fetty Wap
Beginning their set with one of their hit singles, “Sugar, We’re Goin Down,” Fall Out Boy’s performance was everything we ever wanted and more. By ‘more’, I’m talking about when they brought out a shocking surprise guest to perform alongside them! Fetty Wap joined them on the stage as they sung “Trap Queen” together. It was unexpected. It was shocking. It was different. And, it was incredible!
This year’s show undeniably beat all expectations, and I don’t know about you, but I’m already excited for what they have in store for next year!

Manchester Orchestra Added To Coral Skies Music Festival


The Atlanta-based melodic grunge/emocore quintet Manchester Orchestra has been added to the line-up for one of the most exciting Festivals of the year, the 2014 Coral Skies Music Festival. Scheduled Saturday, October 25 in Tampa and Sunday, October 26 in West Palm Beach, the CORAL SKIES MUSIC FESTIVAL  brings two stages of all-day music featuring great bands, an expanded array of food trucks and variety of craft beers and regionally renowned artists, Coral Skies Music Festival will have something for everyone.

Over the course of each day, the festival will feature an eclectic lineup of internationally established and emerging bands on two stages. The lineup features:

Cage The Elephant ¤ Julian Casablancas & The Voidz ¤ City And Colour ¤ Bombay Bicycle Club ¤ Bleachers ¤ Tokyo Police Club ¤ The Hold Steady ¤ Wild Cub ¤ Junior Prom ¤ Benjamin Booker ¤ Good Graeff ¤
And Now Manchester Orchestra!

 Two Stages of Great Music
Plus an expanded selection of Craft Beers, Food Trucks and Art

Saturday, October 25th –
MidFlorida Credit Union Amphitheatre in Tampa

Sunday, October 26th –
Cruzan Amphitheatre in West Palm Beach

Manchester Orchestra recently released their fifth studio album Hope, a companion to their fourth album the hard-hitting Cope.  They had discovered something pretty amazing. The unapologetically heavy anthems from Cope seemed to work just as well (or even better) when stripped to their essence. Although the track listing on HOPE is identical to its companion, band leader Andy Hull did shift the lyrics on a few tracks, exploring other aspects of the stories he’d told on COPE, hoping to invest the narratives with a fresh perspective. The two albums exist both separately and together. Each is its own listening experience, with its own intent and stories. But placed adjacent, COPE and HOPE create a greater meaning, and reveal a musical and philosophical balance for the band.

Coral Skies Music Festival promises more than just great music.  There will also be the best Craft Beers . . . and lots and lots of them!  You can enjoy the refreshing craft beers along with taste-tempting delights from one of the greatly expanded array of critically acclaimed food trucks.  There will be great cuisine from some of the most unique and mouthwatering Food Trucks found anywhere in Florida.

And then there is the Art!  Art is at the heart of everything the Coral Skies Music Festival brings to the experience, whether it is through the music, our finely crafted beers or unique food trucks. Coral Skies with its eclectic mix of artistic expressions will allow festival goers to actively engage with critically-acclaimed artists from around the region in Florida’s progressive art scene.

With all that’s happening at Coral Skies Music Festival, there is just no reason not to have the best time of your life!

$30.00 General Admission Tickets for the Coral Skies Music Festival are available for purchase at www.coralskiesfest.com.
