Firefly Festival 2015: Countdown

Happy Friday Earthlings!

The Firefly Festival is about to begin in T-Minus 5 days!  Can you believe it?  Chicago’s Red Frog Entertainment has now teamed up Los Angeles’ Goldenvoice/AEG Live (the juggernaut behind our county’s largest concert festival…Coachella) for this 4th installment.  Based in good ole lil Dover, Delaware (The First State…who would’ve thunk?) Firefly is expecting over 90,000 people for this year’s turnout.  It’s been growing by leap and bounds each year, doubling in size and breaking attendance records for any summer concert series nationwide.  Even Sir Paul McCartney (of The Beatles, not Kanye West’s buddy, you ignorant youngsters) is headlining the bill.  Check out the Lineup above, and a recap of last year’s event below. Stay tuned for our post on the daily lineup schedule and survival guide.  Hurry to get your tickets because it is almost sold out again!  #switchflipcertified

Iggy Azalea: My World

Sisters n Bredren,

There’s a new Female Hip-Pop Sheriff in town, and her name is Iggy Azalea.  The Australian Born songrwriter and rapper’s creative juices began brewing as a teen in her hometown of New South Wales.  Now residing in LA, she’s picked up some serious west coast swagger and has recently signed to Interscope Records.  The 21-year old’s self titled “Ignorant Art” can be seen in a flurry of videos which became viral sensations over the last few months.  Iggy’s official debut record “The New Classic” (executive produced by T.I.) is slated to drop in June 2012.  She’s already gathering loads of attention for being the girlfriend of A$AP Rocky, and her controversial videos/style automatically puts her in the ring with Kreayshawn.  Who’s side are you on?  Peep the interview and “Gucci Gucci” below for judgement.  Who you rollin’ wit?

OFWGKTA’s Tyler The Creator: Yonkers

Happy Friday Earthlings:

Odd Future (OFWGKTA) is one of the most promising and hyped new skewl acts changing the game right now.  Although the content is kinda “sketchy”, the Cali collective is light years ahead of the so-called “creativity” out at the moment.  Their leader, Tyler the Creator, has dropped the first “proper” label album “Goblin”  as a solo artist, but believe this…it’s a total representation of the “Wolf Gang“.  Oh yeah, did we mention these cats are between the ages of 17-21?!?  Odd Future Wolf Gang….watch for them.  More posts and news to come about this collective.  To us here at  TheSwitchFlip…it’s like a new Wu-Tang-meets-The Pharcyde.
