5 Best Summer Music Festivals of 2013!

music festivals1

We love music and we love summer and summer music festivals are the perfect combination of both!  They are literally the glue that holds summer together.  We all look forward to late sumer nights, days by the pool, unbearable (but much loved) summer heat, night swims and tan lines. But what we really love the most are the music festivals. Whether it’s just a local summer fest or a multi mil festival production, music festivals are the epic staple of summer. 

So here are OUR top 5 music festivals for Summer 2013!

Though tickets for this festival are completely sold out, the EDC experience is traveling the world! Insomniac Events introduced The Road to Las Vegas with a series of EDC festivals around the states, and this year they’re adding Chicago and London.

Yep… not necessary our cup of tea but the lineup of musicians playing is so incredible we’re willing to bear the mud, smelling armpits and camping rituals that must go along with today’s version of Woodstock.  Just think…20 years from now your kids will say, “You went to Bonnaroo???” You’ll be the coolest parent in the carpool! Click HERE for festival trailer!

Lollapalooza has to be one of the most incredible festivals of the summer.  The killer line up should really say it all, but what tops it off is that it is set in the heart of Chicago.  Check out the lineup! Incredible!!! And if you can’t make the Chicago festival, Lollapalooza also plants its feet in Chile and Brazil!! Click HERE for festival trailer!

This couldn’t be more awesome! The killer minds behind TomorrowLand have finally agreed to bring this epic music festival to the states! And we couldn’t be more excited! The energy this festival brings is killer! For years and years the Europeans have been partying to the festivities of this festival and we’ve traveled the distance.  But now its in our backyard – Chattahoochee Hills, Georgia!

We’ve never been to this festival…or even heard of it for that matter, but with worldwide talent like Pitbull and the forever forgotten 98 Degrees this could be the festival of the summer.  After all, it claims to be “The World’s Largest Music Festival” and we’re all ears!

Get Lucky! Daft Punk feat. Pharrell Williams! Perfect Summer Song!

daft punk

We’re already looking for the perfect song for Summer 2013 and this might just be a contender.  Get Lucky from Daft Punk featuring Pharrell Williams combines that crazy electric jam vibe with a 70’s groove making us wonder if 2013 is going to be a return to the 70’s with carefree abandon?!!! Wasn’t that also the Summer of Sam vibe as in Son of Sam murders in 1977 in The Bronx??? Damn bitch…it’s gonna be a hottttt summer!!!!

Combination feat. Tommy Clint: Wake Up the Neighbors

combination

Wakes Up the Neighbors from Combination Feat. Tommy Clint has literally hit the European Dance Charts running.  Only in it’s 2nd week, the hot single has already moved from #57 to #25.  And we have to be honest…we didn’t love this song when we first heard it.  Actually, we kind of thought it was some bad demo someone had sent us to review.  But after listening to it a few times and having in in the background while we were driving around, the lyrics stuck in our head and we were in love.  But isn’t that what happens with tons of chart breaking hits?  Not to mention the video is awesome! Enjoy it and let us know what you think!

Didier Casnati of The Gypsy Queens…THE Interview!

didier casnati 3

About six months ago, we heard a clip of The Gypsy Queens’ L’Americano on National Public Radio and became instant fans.  We came home and quickly Googled their name, expecting to find several chart-topping albums in Europe.  We were surprised to find they hadn’t even released their debut album, which was just recently released last December.  After watching the video for their debut song, L’Americano, we not only fell in love with their music, but also with their style, grace and overall essence.  They encompassed something, as men, we wanted to embrace in ourselves and that which most women would want to seduce.  As a band, they were just so damn sexy and their music made us feel sexy! When we read the About section on their website, we were even more surprised to find their lead singer and “soul of the Gypsy Queens” had been serving tables several years ago when the bad was discovered.  After listening to their music and reading their stories we became quite enthralled and had to find out more about the man behind the soul of the Gypsy Queens…the next big thing!

the gypsy queens

1. Introduce us to the Gypsy Queens using five words?

Real, acoustic, fun, unpredictable, witty.

 

2. How did you come together as a band?

Through the large music community of music and musicians in Nice, and busking.

 

3. How were you discovered?

We are still to be discovered.

 

4. How did you come up with the name the Gypsy Queens?

I didn’t. It was a notorious restaurateur in Rome, who said we reminded him of the gypsy kings, cause we were going around with our guitars etc, but because his venue was a gay venue, we were to be called the gypsy queens.

 

5. What can we expect from your first album?

To discover how with Larry Klein, we have put together 5 different cultures to make our listeners travel with us.

6. Your sound is a great mix of many different genres.  How would you define your sound?

Maybe we created a new sound with Larry. I would have to ask him, but I may suggest “acoustic busking” as our sound.

 

7. What is your all-time favorite movie?

Scent of a Woman.

 

8. If you were to recommend a book to a friend, what would you recommend?

“The Making of the Gypsy Queens” but I haven’t written it entirely yet.

 

9. Your look, feel and sound almost seem to have a magically fictional quality.  Who is a fictional character you idolized growing up?

I got into music because I wanted to be Michael Jackson. Although he was a real person, I think he had created a MJ that was quite fictional to simple people like me, because he seemed inaccessible. Otherwise, I am the Pink Panther – but that’s a secret.

 

10. Who are your three greatest musical influences?

Although he doesn’t have much to do with how the band sounds, Michael Jackson. The Eagles, and The Beatles.

the gypsy queens 2

11. If you could play with any musician, dead or alive, who would you choose?

Ray Charles, Elton John, and The Beatles

 

12. How do you define sexy?

Its beautiful women like Sophia Loren, Brigitte Bardot, or Charlize Theron who define the word sexy, not Didi of the Gypsy Queens…

 

13. What is the sexiest city? Bar? Drink? Song? Hotel? Place to kiss?

With the right person, any place is magic. Having the right person with you. There is a little restaurant on the water in Bonaire – Dutch Antilles, where the sun disappears behind the ocean around 7 pm at night in January… I don’t remember the name of the place, but it’s magic!

 

14.  What advice would you give someone about making their dreams come true?

Stay awake! And don’t take anyone or anything for granted.

 

15.  Frank Sinatra or Freddie Mercury?

Mercury

didier casnati

16.  Speedo or Trunks?

Trunks

 

17.  Red Wine or Whiskey?

Don’t drink alcohol. But it would be red wine.

 

18. What is a great finale song?

Every performance is different, and that could be a different song every time. Hit the Road Jack?

 

19.  What can we expect next from the Gypsy Queens?

To let us welcome you into our world and for us to be the same as we’ve always been; hard working, humble, sincere and happy!

 

20. What are your three simple luxuries?

Spending time with the ones I love, doing what I like the most for a living (music) and being at home a few days a month!
