With the likes of Coachella and Bonnaroo having released their lineup, and Austin City Limits releasing theirs in the spring, this years music festival circuit is going to be tough to compete with in the future.
There are some repeat acts coming on the festival circuit like, Florence+The Machine, and Kendrick Lamar, there are some new faces to the circuit, such as Drake, Marina and the Diamonds and AC/DC.
Although they are returning acts, Florence+The Machine could be debuting new music, not having been on the scene since “Ceremonials,” the previous album.
New to the festival scene Marina and the Diamonds is debuting new music, as her promotional singles “Froot,” and “Happy” have been released the past few months.
Music veterans AC/DC are performing at Coachella, and Billy Joel is performing at Bonnaroo.
With the likes of Outkast, Eminem, and Pearl Jam performing the circuits last year, this festival season seems to have bumped up the musical caliber.
When all is said and done, 2015 is going to be a good year for the festival music circuit, with the clash of old and new, and revamped coming together to collaborate.
Florence + The Machine
With hits such as “Shake it Off” and “Dog Days are Over” it’s no surprise Florence and her band are ready to hit the ground running in 2015, having last released their album “Ceremonials” in 2011.
Performing at both Coachella and Bonnaroo, they’re poised to make an entrance to Austin City Limits in October.
Florence + The Machine are no stranger to ACL having played in 2012.
Marina and the Diamonds
Marina and the Diamonds are no stranger to the music world, giving the public hits such as “I Am Not A Robot,” and “Primadonna.”
Set to perform at Coachella, Marina and her band are sure to give the audience the newest hits from her upcoming album “Froot,” set to be released in April.
Also, a hopeful ACL contender on the setlist for at least one weekend.
Bringing in the biggest media attention to the festival circuit this year is Mr. Champagnepapi himself, Aubrey Graham, better known as Drake.
With last years rap choice of Eminem, this year the festival circuit has gone more modern in its choice to cast Drake as the headlining act for Coachella, and also an ACL hopeful, making his first appearance.
Drake has had many hits throughout his short career including, “Take Care,” “0-100” and the most recent “Tuesday.”
Along with having many hits, there are more to come from Drake, with the release of an album, “Views from the 6” and an alleged mixtape this year.
Drama follows this next artist everywhere she goes, mainly on Twitter, where she is seen attacking any artist with an opposing thought or view to her own.
Azealia Banks has had a rough career, being in a tumultuous relationship with her previous record label, and finally being freed mid-2014.
With that release came the release of an album from Banks. Her hits include “212” and “1991,” along with soon-to-be Banks classics “Heavy Metal Reflective.”
