The first ever ALL MY FRIENDS Music Festival is taking place this weekend, August 18th & 19th, in the heart of Downtown Los Angeles featuring diversely ranged musical acts and performers. To get you ready for this weekend’s event, we have compiled a list of the Top 5 must-see artists of the weekend.
Clone or not, the East Atlanta Santa – Gucci Mane, needs no introduction as the rapper has a resume of features and collaborations stretching across the world and back. Though, it was only until a year ago that the rapper reached his first ever certified platinum single as the lead artist of his track “Both” featuring Drake.
Gucci Mane has 12 studio albums, two collaborative albums, three compilation albums, one soundtrack, 7 extended plays (EPs), 72 mixtapes and 32 singles (including 21 featured artists such as The Weeknd, Rae Sremmurd, Migos, Fifth Harmony, and yes, even Tiësto). To say the least, he is definitely one of our most anticipated acts to perform AMF.
Mesmerizing, eclectic, and enchanting beauty is three simple words to convince yourself to see and hear the angel of a voice, that is, Jhené Aiko.
She may Big Sean’s face tatted on her arm but the singer’s angelic voice is more than a good enough reason to hear songs such as “Sativa,” “The Worst,” “Fantasy” and many more live and in person. The singer/song-writer has a full hour to captivate the audience with a narrative journey of her psychedelic trip trough ego-death, love, and spiritual reawakening.
Fresh off a brand new album release titled, ‘NOVA,’ RL Grime reconciliates his drive through and out of a depressive state and 2 year hiatus in hopes to further seal his legacy in electronic/trap music.
RL Grime’s, ‘NOVA’ strikes fans with journey ride filled music, so it will be interesting how the trap phenom delivers his sound through a live concert setting after taking so much time off.
A very simple explanation as to why fans should anticipate M.I.A’s performance at AMF – she doesn’t perform often – if not at all.
With such songs as “Paper Planes,” “P.O.W.A,” “Bad Girls,” and many more, M.I.A has proven that she is a force to be reckoned with and is unafraid of the moment even if it means giving the finger live at the Super Bowl to over 100 million viewers.
Jamie XX’s greatest strength as a DJ is his impressive ability to communicate with the crowd without saying anything at all. To see him live is not only to dig into his treasure trove of influences, but also to stand in conversation with him — a rare feeling to find within a festival DJ set.
