You might find this hard to believe, but Ive never been to a music festival, so before I turn into a (really) old man, ive been thinking about checking out Couchella-the line up is crazy. But to all my Lab DJ students!!! I also stumbled upon this.....from the Coachella newsleter:
"Ever dreamed about DJing at Coachella?
First there's a catch! With great opportunity, comes great sacrifice. You cannot perform on your own. You'll need at least 12 friends to power all your equipment.
Your friends will be running on hamster wheels, riding bikes, turning hand cranks, riding seesaws among other things to power your turntables and sound system"

MTV announced that DJ A-Trak and Travis Barker will be collaborating on a new project including (but possibly not limited to?) a live show in March. Barker has already gained praise through his work with the late DJ AM, and through his various remixes in which he plays live drums. I'm pretty excited to see what comes about.
To quote A-Trak: "One can’t help but think of DJ AM at this time. All I can say is I’m proud to fill those shoes. What I’m doing with Travis will be considerably different, which I think is important. I can’t wait to put my own spin on the concept." (via A-Trak's blog)
