Kygo and Tina Turner to Release Remix of Iconic Single "What's Love Got to Do with It"

The Norwegian producer is set to provide a new spin to Turner's 1984 Grammy Award-winning track.

After featuring vocals from the late Whitney Houston on their cover of Steve Winwood's "Higher Love" last summer, Kygo is gearing up for the release of his next big pop crossover. This time, the tropical house trailblazer will assist Tina Turner in a remix of her 1984 classic "What's Love Got to Do with It."

At the time of writing, neither Kygo nor Turner have released a preview of the song, but have shared what is presumed to be the album art for the remix. Alongside information on the release date of the single, Kygo posted to his social media accounts and shared how much of an honor it was to work with an artist of Turner's caliber. "Can’t believe I’m releasing a collab with [Tina Turner] this Friday!" he wrote. "'What’s Love Got To Do With It’ is one of my all time favorite songs, and it feels surreal to get the opportunity to work with such a legendary artist!"

"What's Love Got to Do with It" by Tina Turner and Kygo is set to release on Friday, July 17th. In the meantime, you can listen to the original from the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee below.

From this weekend until mid-September, the dance publication will host livestreams on Saturdays and Sundays.

Each year, the controversial DJ Mag Top 100 list becomes a major talking point in the EDM world. Artists seem split between battling for the top spot or denouncing the list entirely.

This year, the dance music publication will be hosting weekly livestreams for two months, which will serve as a countdown to the countdown. The voting is set to begin on Wednesday, July 15th. For the fourth year in a row, proceeds from the list will be donated to support Unicef in their battle against COVID-19

Each Saturday and Sunday from now until September, DJ Mag will host performances from many EDM mainstays and underground stars. Organizers stated that Saturdays will see sets from artists on the main DJ Mag Top 100 list while Sundays will feature artists from their house and techno-friendly, Beatport-powered Alternative Top 100 DJs list. So far, they've revealed that David Guetta, Don Diablo, Oliver Heldens, Carl Cox, Nicole Moudaber, and last year's winning act, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, will be taking the virtual decks, alongside many others.

The first DJ Mag Top 100 virtual festival is set to take place on July 18th and 19th with Saturday and Sunday episodes coming each week until September 19th. For more information on the weekly series, head over to DJ Mag.

Burning Man Organizers Invite Fans to Discussion About Its Sustainability Solutions

Join on Friday to be the first to hear about Burning Man's progress on the "2030 Environmental Sustainability Roadmap."

Back in May 2020, Burning Man announced Kindling, a virtual shared live experience platform with a mission to immerse fans into the event's culture digitally in lieu of its cancelled 2020 iteration. "Since we can't gather in person, Kindling is your space to explore live experiences being created by instigators in the BMan community & beyond," said organizers in a tweet at the time.

Kindling today invited the Burning Man community to one of those live experiences, a discussion called "Ecosystem Activation: 'Year One Report - Sustainability Roadmap'."

The call, which will feature Burning Man staff and community members, is designed to inform participants about the implementation of the event's "2030 Environmental Sustainability Roadmap," a comprehensive plan to develop environmental sustainability solutions. Over the course of the discussion, its moderators will share the progress of three key goals outlined in the roadmap: "Handle Waste Ecologically," "Be Regenerative," and "Be Carbon Negative."

Ahead of the discussion, you can familiarize yourself with the "2030 Environmental Sustainability Roadmap" here. The plan's goal is to unite the "significant intellectual, creative, and financial resources of the Burning Man community to develop, proliferate, and scale environmental sustainability solutions."

You can join and find more information on the discussion, which will take place this Friday, July 17th from 12PM to 3PM PDT (3PM to 6PM ET), here.

Take a Look Inside the Return of "Yoga on the Rocks" at Red Rocks Amphitheatre

"Yoga on the Rocks" returned to the fabled Colorado open air venue over the weekend.

Red Rocks Amphitheatre was one of countless concert venues to shutter due to the impact of COVID-19. As those venues continue to toil away in the painstaking process of navigating the convoluted phases of reopening, many, like Red Rocks, are thinking outside the box.

They say that when the air is thin, it makes your heart bigger—a phenomenon that many are desperately seeking in these harrowing times. The fabled Colorado open air venue, which is situated 6,450 feet above sea level, hosted the return of its "Yoga on the Rocks" series over the weekend and invited people to its sprawling property for some much-needed R & R. Those who have attended concerts at Red Rocks can attest that there is nothing quite like it due to its picturesque views and utopian flair, and an exhilarating yoga session in its idyllic backdrop is a one-of-a-kind experience.

Those who want to partake in "Yoga on the Rocks" can purchase tickets here. Passes are only available online since the box office is closed. Sessions take place from 7AM to 8AM and patrons must bring their own yoga mats.

You can check out photos of the revival of "Yoga on the Rocks" below.

Tiësto to Debut VER:WEST Side Project at Tomorrowland Around the World

The Dutch EDM veteran will be premiering his new alias at the digital festival later this month.

After sharing a cryptic teaser and creating social media accounts in its honor last month, Tiësto is finally ready to debut his new side project, VER:WEST. Titled after his last name "Verwest," fans have been eagerly awaiting to hear what the Dutch dance music veteran has in store. Luckily, the wait is almost over as he just announced that the first ever VER:WEST performance will take place at the Tomorrowland Around the World digital festival.

Describing it as a "melodic house" side project, Tiësto spoke about his latest venture in a press release and shared how excited he was to show off a different side of himself.

I would describe VER:WEST as melodic house music. It’s a lot deeper and more chill and a very different energy than Tiësto. I got this opportunity from Tomorrowland to express a different side of me which I’ve never done before. I know they are going to put amazing visuals around it and make it look really different and cool. Expect the unexpected, it’s going to look amazing!

In addition to the debut of VER:WEST, the virtual Tomorrowland Around the World event will feature performances from Martin Garrix, Armin van Buuren, Amelie Lens, David Guetta, and more.

The show kicks off on July 25th and 26th. Tickets to the VR-enabled party are on sale now and can be purchased here

Here is a Website that Generates a Random 90s Festival Lineup and Plays Vintage Concert Footage

*Nostalgia* has entered the chat.

Music lovers who are bored in quarantine have hit the jackpot thanks to the "90s Festival Generator," a website that formulates random festival lineups swelled with nostalgic acts of the 90s.

The serendipitous site was created by Twitter user "rico monkeon," who wrote that it features "wonky VHS footage of all your indie favourites." To create your own lineup and dive into a rabbit hole of nostalgia, simply navigate to the site. A random lineup will populate, and if it's not to your liking, you can click on the "Generate Another Festival" button to make another.

A multitude of iconic bands and artists are stitched into the site, including Limp Bizkit, Aphex Twin, Public EnemyGreen DayRed Hot Chili Peppers, Weezer, The Roots, and Tony Bennett, among many others.

An added bonus of the site is the fact that it embedded vintage VHS footage from every artist, which is accessible by clicking any artist's banner. For example, clicking on The Chemical Brothers populates a clip from their iconic Glastonbury set from 1997.
