After announcing he will be a part of Coachella this year, Smino put out the dates for his “Smino’s Hoopti Tour” in support of his 2018 album Noir. I am beyond excited for this tour. I’ve seen Smino abut four or five times and I love it each. Such a great, soulful, fun show. Check out some pics I’ve done at his show here.

Netflix released the trailer for their Fyre festival documentary and WTF. I remember when all the drama went down surrounding the festival two years ago, but I would love to get a more in-depth review about all that went down.
Seeing the trailer also inspired me to revisit the the original trailer for the festival. While I don’t think anyone deserves to be scammed, the trailer did not give me a lot of faith in what they were advertising. It was kind of like a Victoria’s Secret commercial mixed with footage with a concert that was not related to Fyre because that was the first year they were going to do it. Also, going to a remote island is never appealing to me.
What do you think of the trailer? Would you have bought tickets to Fyre if you had the money?
2019 just started and festival line ups are already being released. Here is who I would see each day.
Childish Gambino, Anderson .Paak, Ella Mai, Jaden Smith, dvsn, Janelle Monae
Solange, Kid Cudi, Wiz Khalifa, Smino, SiR, Idris Elba
Ariana Grande, Khalid, Zedd, Bad Bunny, YG, Playboi Carti, H.E.R., Blood Orange, Pusha T, SOB X RBE
Seeing the first lineup for festival season is always surprising because people haven’t released new music yet and you haven’t seen who is on the festival circuit yet. So I’m hoping a lot of these artists release new music and albums to play at these festivals. Its interesting to see Ariana Grande on here; there isn’t usually that many pure pop acts on here, and its great to see another woman headliner. Coachella also has a special connection to Ariana Grande because that is where she did a surprise performance of “No Tears Left To Cry” for the first time.
Check up the full lineup below. You can buy tickets starting Jan 4 here. Prices start at $429 for a weekend pass.
