If you haven’t heard yet, The Floozies have dropped a sick new funky tune entitled “Stuntin“. The Hill Brothers of Lawrence, Kansas are on a roll with shaking up the jam-tronic scene and bringing a new sound into the genre. Drawing samples from Weezy, The Floozies put out a track that is both funky and gangster at the same time. We are intrigued by the tunes The Floozies are putting out and we cannot wait to catch them on the grind during this Summer’s festival season. Enjoy this track and be sure to grab your FREE download from The Floozies website along with all of the band’s other works. Cheers!
Zoogma is prepping for a huge Summer full of festival dates and crazy shows including Wakarusa 2013. With a new album coming out very soon, they wanted to release a tune to get fans hyped about their upcoming endeavors. The banging tune “Elevated” features a totally electronic side of Zoogma that reminds us of jamming out to their packed sets all Summer long last year. Combining the electronic elements with live aspects (guitars, drums, synth), Zoogma is on top of the electro rock jamtronic scenes. Zoogma is about to hit the road for their headlining “Up and Lifted Tour” with stops across the Country from Jan to March. Be sure to grab your FREE download of Zoogma’s new tune “Elevated” and be sure to stay elevated!!!

Each May, our excitement builds with plans of traveling deep into the abyss of the Appalachians to explore Mulberry Mountain and it’s landmark, prolific, and now ‘decade-old’ Wakarusa Music Festival. Hosted by the great minds of Pipeline Productions, Wakarusa is more than just your average run-of-the-mill Summer camping festival, Waka offers much more.
With careful precision and detailed selection, the lineup for Wakarusa has grown to be one of the most original, unique, and simply put ‘large’ festival lineups in all of the US. For 2013, they have busted the locks on all the cages and set the beasts free. Boasting headliners Widespread Panic, Dispatch, STS9, The Black Crowes, Amon Tobin, Snoop Lion, and Umphrey’s McGee the eclectic talent spreads to all genres and will make any fan of festival music aroused. Perhaps, that is just the icing on the cake though.
One of our favorite attributes of Wakarusa is the fact that they have a keen sense for booking the next big up-and-coming performers. From launching the festival career of Pretty Lights, to providing a touring stop for artists buzzing in the underground scenes of each genre, Wakarusa is the ideal event to expand your musical tastes and knowledge. This Summer will follow suite with potential future headliners like GRiZ, HeRobust, RL Grime, Wick-it the Instigator, Baauer, Cherub, The Werks, and Zoogma commanding a chunk of the vibrant lineup.
On top of all of this, the environment at Wakarusa cannot be duplicated. Tucked away on top of the gorgeous Mulberry Mountain in the Appalachian hills of Arkansas, there is always time to stop, sit, and admire nature (or take a swim in the river). If you add it up, you are left with no choice: buy your tickets now, or you will be left out! Seriously, you don’t want to regret missing the beast that has grown to be Wakarusa Music and Camping Festival 2013. Well, now we are brought back to the fact that it is only mid-January. The anticipation has set in. We are wired for Waka.
We will continue to update you on Wakarusa 2013 announcements and news. You can also find the information onWaka’s website (www.wakarusa.com). You can purchase your tickets to Wakarusa now. Check out the Wakarusa Official 2013 Preview Video below as well as the full lineup.

Wakarusa has released their final installment of their 2013 lineup! This third release may be the biggest yet. With STS9, The Black Crowes, and Snoop Lion atop the list, the festival proves to stay eclectic and original. We are quite positive you will not find a lineup like this anywhere else in the world. Wakarusa 2013 is going to be absolutely huge. From GRiZ to Gogol Bordello, this is by far the biggest lineup that Waka has ever repped. We cannot wait to be back up on Mulberry Mountain!
BoomBox had a mighty day today with announcing that they are playing Wakarusa Music Festival 2013 in the afternoon and capping off the day by releasing the groovy tune “Lost Ya”, premiered by the blog powerhouse www.thissongissick.com. BoomBox has captivated audiences across the world with their psychedelic sound and soft lyrics. If this new track is a sign, we are hoping to expect more new music from the BoomBox duo.
Curated Music had a blast covering Wakarusa 2012. There isn’t a festival that is quite like Wakarusa. Tucked away deep in the Ozark’s Mulberry Mountain range, Wakarusa packs a multi-genre, five stage festival into four days of absolute madness. With temperatures busting over 100 degrees Fahrenheit, it surely embraces all that a summer music festival can offer. From riding the giant trippy ferris wheel, to lounging in the river, there is much more to Wakarusa than just the music, although, if the rest of the lineup is like phase one, then we are in for a treat!
