A popular festival in Spain has been evacuated after a massive fire broke out, engulfing one of the stages.
22,000 people were evacuated from Tomorrowland Unite Spain, however no one is thought to have been injured. Steve Aoki was set to perform on the stage hours later.
Faulty pyrotechnics are thought to be the blame for the fire. Fans ran for safety as the fire grew, quickly setting alight the main stage.
Authorities were quickly able to take control of the situation and ensure an organised evacuation. Local media has reported that the festival organisers plan to refund all festival-goers who were evacuated.
Following the schedule of one track every Friday leading up to the official album release, Rezz is back this week with “Diluted Brains.”
It seems that Rezz has decided to stay with the horror theme, utilizing a series of staccato synth stabs – but most of all, a dastardly minor key that sticks in your mind like a Wes Craven film on steroids. And then the drop, Rezz’s most powerful weapon… a dark, minimalistic rhythm that almost feels like it’s creeping up your skin.
Playing at a rave would be almost out of the question if it wasn’t directly from Rezz herself, who no doubt meticulously crafts her sets to the utmost in order to create an atmosphere unlike any other.
“Diluted Brains” is the second single from Rezz’s forthcoming album Mass Manipulation out August 4 on mau5trap.
Alesso first debuted this track at Ultra this year in his set at the main stage, and fans have been clamoring for it ever since. “Move Like That” is a barreling bass house tune with lots of energy in the synths and drums. With the first drop, you definitely get a taste of what a harder Alesso could sound like, but then you get to the second synth which hits double time and you really get a new appreciation for the Swede.
Though there’s a significant amount of energy in the track, as mentioned before, we’re still left with a feeling like the track is somewhat bland. We love Alesso here, but play this track in a blind listen test, and you could never tell it’s him behind the production. We love when an artist puts their own identity into their tracks and unfortunately we just don’t see it here.
That being said, Alesso now has his own bass house weapon to unleash on crowds at his shows, and we can’t fault him for it. Check out “Move Like That” below, and grab the free download if you’re feeling it!

'Summer Bummer' and 'Groupie Love' are both collaborations with A$AP Rocky
Lana Del Rey has shared two new songs from her forthcoming new album ‘Lust For Life‘.
The singer stopped by the Beats 1 studio in LA to premiere the tracks on Zane Lowe’s show today (July 12).
Ahead of playing ‘Summer Bummer’, Del Rey revealed it was produced by Boi-1Da and featured appearances from Playboi Carti and A$AP Rocky.
Speaking to Lowe about slowly getting into a more uptempo style after songs ‘High By The Beach’ and ‘Freak’, she said: “I felt like I was getting into this mid-tempo groove and now I’m all the way in, out all night.”
Speaking about ‘Groupie Love’, which follows ‘Summer Bummer’ on the album, Del Rey said: “My tracklisting changed a lot in the last three months and this middle section – ‘White Mustang’, ‘Cherry’, ‘Summer Bummer’, ‘Groupie Love’ and even ‘Coachella’ – I feel like this middle section has a lot of fire in it even though it’s not that fast. The beats are hard.” Listen to ‘Groupie Love’ below.
The musician previously teased the collaborations on Instagram earlier this week. They precede ‘Lust For Life’, which is due for release on July 21.
So far, Del Rey has shared the record’s lead single ‘Love’, her album title-track and Weeknd collaboration and ‘Coachella – Woodstock In My Mind’. She has also previewed the tracks ‘Change’ and ‘Cherry’.
Speaking to Stevie Nicks, who also appears on the album, for a recent V interview, she talked about making music in the current political climate. She said: “Regardless of where someone is at personally, the current landscape jolts you into being present, if you’re not crazy. If you’re a normal person, you’re suddenly aware and watching everything.”
She also said that she feels “lucky to be able to speak my mind through music right in the present moment”.
‘Lust For Life’ is now available to pre-order, with ‘Summer Bummer’ and ‘Groupie Love’ immediately available to those that do. The album features guest spots from A$AP Rocky, Stevie Nicks, Sean Ono Lennon, The Weeknd and more.
The punk icons have come up with quite a fitting name for the band too
Green Day‘s Billie Joe Armstrong and Rancid‘s Tim Armstrong have come together to form a new supergroup.
The pair, who are not related, are joined by Billie Joe’s son Joey and Tim’s nephew Rey in the band. Their name? The Armstrongs.
The group have already released their first song ‘If There Ever Was A Time’ and all of the proceeds from it will be given to 924 Gilman, an East Bay all-ages non-profit punk venue where Rancid and Green Day both played early in their careers.
As Spin reports, the single will be released in physical format by Hellcat Records. You can listen to it below.
Recently, Green Day were forced to defend their performance at Madrid’s Mad Cool festival after an acrobat fell to his death ahead of their headline set.
Pedro Aunión Monroy was attempting a between-sets stunt before the punk trio played, which involved an illuminated box suspended by a crane. He fell 100 feet and died from injuries suffered in the accident soon after.
Following criticism for going ahead with their performance, Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong has written a statement, published on the band’s website. “Many of you are wondering why we continued to play our show after the accident,” he wrote. “Green Day did not hear about the accident until after our show was over. We didn’t even know there was an acrobat performance at all.”
As Rolling Stone reports, the group’s set only suffered a slight delay after the accident, causing festival-goers to accuse both the band and Mad Cool organisers of insensitivity. Festival bosses said the event continued as planned for “security reasons”.
