Alright Fusion listeners…. there has been a lot of speculations on where Electric Daisy Carnival will be held in Chicago. Since not all of our listeners are from the Chicago-land area, I wanted to shed some light on the possibilities.
EDC Chicago Tweeted on December 13th that the possibility for the the 2013 event could be Soldier Field (On the Chicago Lake Front), Chicago Land Speedway (50 miles outside the City of Chicago), or Toyota Park (25 Miles outside the City of Chicago). The EDC Chicago twitter feed did say it confirmed the 300,000+ person venue. So lets break down which one of these venues could hold that many people.
*Soldier Field’s Capacity is 61,500 people in the stands, its possible for another 5,000 or so to fit on the field.
*Chicago Land Speedway’s Capacity is $75,000 and sits on 930 acres of land which can hold more than 50,000 cars in its parking lots.
*Toyota Park’s Capacity is 28,000 for concerts, and only has a 6,000 car capacity in its 3 parking lots!
If I had to bet on which venue was going to be hosting the 300,000+ person crowd I would say it has to be Chicago Land Speedway! 75,000 people in the stands, room for 50,000 cars, and don’t forget all of the space on the track level. I guess we will have to wait till January 16th for the final answer to where EDC Chicago will be held.
Check out the Promo video from 2012!
Madonna in Chicago 2012
Everyone in Chicago is talking about Madonna this week. With two huge shows at the United Center gays were coming out in droves along with many middle aged women dressed in a ’80s style. Lace and hot pink were all over the place as fans relived their teenage years.
Paul Oakenfield got the crowd jumping with a DJ set. This was fitting as he has remixed many of Madge’s songs over the years. Afterwards there was a long break before the diva arrived to the tune of 10:30 p.m.
It felt like an Enigma concert with all the religious images onstage. A huge cross and dancers dressed in robes banging gongs along with a huge swinging smoke thurible full of incense pouring out of it. After a quick shadowed confession Madonna popped out with “Girls Gone Wild” that included samples of “Material Girl.” Her cover of “Revolver” had her toting guns that have caused controversy once again. She used videos to stir this pot and remind fans how she has always pushed the envelope and enjoyed controversy.
“Express Yourself” included excerpts from Gaga’s “Born This Way” that surprised many, while she seems to have forgiven her for their similarities. She said, “You don’t need to be Oprah Winfrey to change the world” and explained how important it is to have a strong female role model but be your own at the same time. She spoke of giving everyone dignity and respect then promptly said, “Don’t vote for Mitt Romney.” “Give Me All Your Luvin’” had people raising to their feet to dance. That energy is what many bounced along to although she told her fans to buy more merchandise then scolded them about not singing along enough to her lyrics. “You only get what you give, motherfuckers from the Midwest!”
For the “Justify My Love” segment there were scary masks worn by dancers that tried to convey an unknown message. She continued to sprinkle past hits mixed with the new material from MDNA. “Vogue” was spectacular and definitely a highpoint to the show, from the costumes to the dance sequences Madonna showed with one song that the over $350 ticket was worth it to the diehards.
“Like a Virgin” was sung from on top of the piano as she rolled around in a slow style that many would call self indulgent. She then mooned the audience while seeming a little disorganized about her microphone pack to show off her back tattoo.
Shogun warriors costumes made interesting dance sequences for “I’m Addicted” along with challenges of drapery. “I’m a Sinner” may not be familiar to many of the older fans but worked well visually to the strumming of sitars. “Like a Prayer” of course had everyone in choir robes and Madonna rolling on the ground as was to be expected but why change a routine that works?
The show ended with “Celebration” and left many wanting more of an encore. But once again this show is about Madonna’s vision for a concert, the audience was just here to observe and enjoy the ride whether they liked it or not.
Lady Gaga tells British newspaper The Sun that she’s recording her new Album titled ARTPOP completely naked! Her new album will be released in early 2013. The superstar is also working on a new Robert Rodriguez film titled “Machete Kills” according to NME.com:
The singer, who is also set to make a public appearance at iconic London department store Harrods on October 7, announced last month that she will make her acting debut in a new Robert Rodriguez movie called Machete Kills. She will play a character called ‘La Chameleon’ in the film, which is a sequel to Rodriguez’s 2010 action exploitation movie Machete.
‘ARTPOP’ will be Gaga’s third studio album and the follow-up to her 2011 album ‘Born This Way’. Fans are speculating that the album could feature a collaboration with Azealia Banks after the pair began a teasing Twitter conversation earlier this month (August 22).
Looks like we have lots to look forward to in 2013! Let’s hope the world doesn’t end.
This weeks Top Song On Fusion Radio is Sebastian Ingrosso & Alesso Ft. Ryan Tedder “Calling (Losing My Mind)” (Radio Edit).
Sebastian Ingrosso is that rare thing in the world of dance music: a musician who understands the world of melodies just as much as he understands the power of the kick drum.
Sebastian’s father owned two record labels, and from the tender age of 14 Ingrosso could be found in the studio producing music. His Music Influences include Steve Angello, Axwell, Eric Prydz, Lady Gaga and the Gorillaz to name a few. This could be where his unique understanding of music comes from along with his years of studio experience.
From the first time we heard this weeks #1 song we knew it was a hit! Keep up that great work Sebastian Ingrosso!

The World has never met a DJ and singer like Havana Brown! Little miss Havana Brown, (who, for clarification, originates from Australia, not Cuba), is having a hell of a year!
With her latest smash hit “We Run the Night” featuring Cuban born rapper Pitbull, there is no question that the demand for Havana’s music is rising faster then we can say “Run ‘em, like, run ‘em, run ‘em-Whoop!”
As a DJ she spins old school, electric, R&B, and pop! Her credits come from mastering the skill of mixing these musical styles together so smoothly by adjusting the speeds of a song, then blending them so that the transition is seamless and the effort looks minimal when she does so.The craft is difficult to master, but Havana gets it done just as well as any of her male counterparts in this male dominated arena. She has the look of a Victoria Secret model, a voice that can collaborate with any singer, and the skill to make the beats with such varying artists, this makes the Aussie a triple threat in the music industry!
She is one of the most sought after DJ’s in the land having worked with artists such as Britney Spears, Lady Gaga, Enrique Iglesias, Rihanna, the Pussycat Dolls, and many more! Havana has toured all around the world and under the wings of Island Records has released 6 volumes of her Crave compilation albums since 2008! Miss Brown acquired a 12 month residency at the Las Vegas, Paris nightclub, Chateau after her North American tour gave her much deserved success in the states, and holds three hugely successful radio spots in Australia and France! Two of the latest singles Havana has released are collaborations with Enrique Iglesias called “Heartbeat”, and of course “We Run the Night” featuring Pitbull! Look out for Havana Browns debut album to come out this year and for my review of the album here at Fusion so you can get the skinny on what’s good, what’s bad, and what’s hot!
Check out the “We Run the Night” music video below!
It is that time of year again in Chicago where plans are being made to take over Grant Park in August for that annual music event Lollapalooza. The full line-up has just been announced this past week with rocking results. Look for headliners like Red Hot Chili Peppers, and Metallica for 2012.
What does this mean to dance music listeners? Well, a lot actually. The festival has grown in the DJ department thanks to founder Perry Farrell who loves to turn the tables himself. Started by Farrell from the band Jane’s Addiction in 1991 as a farewell tour that traveled around the country, various music acts have joined up over the years. I was at the very first Lollapalooza in Cleveland with acts such as Nine Inch Nails, Siouxsie and the Banshees, and Ice-T.
After many years the endeavor finally found it’s home in Chicago. Last year it debuted in Chile and this year in Brazil. Now in the three day period the festival hosts over 270,000 attendees last year, taking over the downtown Chicago. Dance acts love to perform there and many have gotten their start at Lollapalooza such as Ke$ha, Kerli, and Skrillex. Lady Gaga was upset over no one paying attention to her the first time she performed live there but returned to a massive amount of fans a year later. Perez Hilton hosted an after party with Kid Sister and B.o.B. along with DJ’s that played until the break of dawn at the Hard Rock Hotel.
Deadmau5 proved to have a huge following last year with fans wearing masks of the logo and a huge downpour didn’t keep them from dancing in the mud all night.
This year look for Bassnectar, Kaskade, and Dev keeping the crowds dancing in the dark. Totally Enormous Dinosaurs bring their pop sound with a recent DJ set at Berlin Nightclub to the stage. DJ Nihal, DJ Mel, and DJ Zebo all be on hand to make the party jump.
Don’t miss this unique opportunity to check out new music from August 3rd to 5th with three day passes available now while supplies last at http://www.lollapalooza.com.
Perry Farrell: Jerry! What’s happening?
Jerry Nunn: How are you, Perry? I went to the first Lollapalooza back in the day in Cleveland. The festival has been getting bigger every year as far as attendance, correct?
PF: It is. When we were first started out. We would have, I would say, between 10 to 20 thousand kids. You know it’s funny because this was before amphitheaters. So, I honestly think looking at the amount of people Lollapalooza was drawing in kind of has detailed these amphitheaters to contain about that size of group of people. And the amphitheaters had kind of run out of options, per se. It was really a kind of destructive set-up, a very destructive arrangement over the years to have these amphitheater that didn’t feel as good as the prior year.
JN: How did it wind up in Chicago?
PF: It ran its course until about 1997, when we decided to take a break and we didn’t really have any options. Then years later we came back and decided to make it a destination music festival and look for a beautiful location, a park, a field or land. We came back, I think, in 2005 and we had about 40 to 50 thousand people who came to that show. Now, I think it’s on its seventh year in Chicago and it’s grown to number of over a quarter of million people in a course of three days. Isn’t that crazy?
JN: Wow. That is crazy. Of course, it’s great for our city, Chicago. It brings in a lot of people from all over.
PF: Oh, yeah. To the city itself, just between the hotels and the restaurants, I think it brings to the city near 30 million dollars. Everybody is getting paid. If I can say, the clubs themselves are also making money because of the after parties.
JN: Yeah, it’s a huge weekend. Lilith Fair was a few weeks ago and had trouble with ticket sales. Is it easier to do the one destination event instead of doing it all over like Sarah?
PF: You know, I just want to say, that it’s its own organism, festivals. Even these tours or individual tours—they are their own beasts. You have to look at each and every one of them as a child. Although they’re in a family they each have their own unique personality. I find that today because of some of the issues, that I just discussed like the amphitheater.
The amphitheater, for shows like Lollapalooza, doesn’t work. It might work for someone, I don’t know, like Bonnie Raitt or James Taylor. You know, you sit down and relax. You’re there with a date. So, you’re not really moving and shaking. Something like Lollapalooza, it has high rock-and-roll and high-impact dance. You want to be loose and you want to be boppin’ around. You want be on the grass and you want to be in open air. All of those things are truly wonderful and you have look for it.
And you have to take your time more. Some of the tours that are put together are snap-in situations. Next year we are going to have our 20th anniversary for Lollapalooza. I’ve had a really good long time to learn about live performances and events. If you want to do them right and leave a mark. You have to do them slower. Find a good location and work with the city. Work with the original people and then you’ll have a successful event.
JN: You know what’s funny to me is that I was in college and I went to see the first Lollapalooza with my college friends. Their daughters are coming up to see the show. So, it’s like a whole different generation are going to the show now.
PF: Yeah, we have an area called Kidzapalooza and I put it there because you got to figure that since 1991 these people could have children that are 18 years old. Crazy, right?
JN: It is.
PF: I don’t know about you but I practically consider myself to be 18 years old and I’m, like, 51 but I feel like I’m 18. So I thought there might be something good here because rather than go to some Disney show as their first concert, where I feel like they’re kind of being spoon fed garbage as their first concert, kids can go to Lollapalooza and see some great groups and also have an area. This year we have Yo Gabba Gabba, which is a children’s show that the White Stripes and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs have been on. Lance Rocket is a great DJ who’s on the show. So, Lance Rocket is going to go and DJ for these little kids.
JN: That’s awesome.
PF: Yeah. So, they are getting indoctrinated into dance music from a good source.
JN: Were you inspired by your sons? Is that what made you want to do it?
PF: Yeah, you know having children all day long. You’re thinking about what’s good for them and what you would like to turn them onto. Turn them on in the right way. I was lucky enough because I had a big brother and a big sister. My big brother loved rock and roll. So I was listening to The Beatles, The Stones and The Who when I was, like, three years old. My sister loved funk. So, I was listening to James Brown and Little Richard. So, that’s why I have—I guess you would say—a more sophisticated taste in music. So, I was considering all of that when I was putting this Kidsapolooza area together. I would love for these little kids to come and say their first concert was Radiohead or Rage Against the Machine. As a result of all that overtime the Kidzapolooza stage is not only graced with kid-friendly music but people like Slash come and join me on stage in the kids’ area. This year, Chrissie Hynde is going to go there and play. That’s really fun.
JN: So, what’s your part with the performance part? Are you doing Jane’s Addiction stuff or are you going to DJ?
PF: This year I’m going to go back to DJing. I’ve been working really hard on my electronic music. It really was validated this year. It blossomed and it really came into its own with people like Lady Gaga and David Guetta. I think all people are leaning towards electronica these days whether it’s hip-hop artists or rock artists. Even Kings of Leon, one of the biggest dance hits of last year was one of their songs remixed.
JN: That’s a good point.
PF: I’ve done a few electronic records. You know, Jane’s Addiction has always pulled me back. I love rock as well. We’re in writing stages right now and we’ll have an album out I think February or March of next year.
JN: I did want to say that at the first Lollapalooza, when you were playing with Jane’s Addiction you said, “Do you any of you people have a problem with gay people?” And you said, “I’m gay.” I know, you’re not technically gay but it meant so much to me being in the closet and hearing everyone cheering for gay people. It means a lot to people when you do things like that.
PF: You know what? My pleasure, and it was easy. My position is easy when you get all of the people in the palm of your hand and you can drop a message on them and they’ll take it. I’m very close to the gay community. My wife, Etty, is a dancer so most of our friends are gay and we love gay people.
I think the gay community should be looked upon as an example of a shining community. They’re very clean and their lawns are very manicured, which is always appreciated. The biggest reason is that they’re peaceful and loving. You never feel like you are going to go into a gay neighborhood and feel threatened. If anything, you feel welcomed. So rather than people bashing or making fun, they should look at the gay community as how they are, safe, friendly and clean. And you know what? They make plenty of money, too.
PF: Exactly. See you at this years Lollapalooza!
