This Labor Day weekend, San Bernardino, CA will host the 20th annual Nocturnal Wonderland festival at the San Manuel Amphitheater & grounds. The mostly-EDM festival has some cool stuff like Duke Dumont, Flosstradamus, Tensnake, Kiesza, DJ Jazzy Jeff, Booka Shade, L-Vis 1990, Eats Everything and Paper Diamond, alongside bigger names like Armin Van Buuren, Bassnectar, Afrojack, David Guetta, Pretty Lights and more. Full lineup below. Tickets are still available.
Like at Outside Lands and Lollapalooza last month, BrooklynVegan will be repping inside the festival grounds, in the Toyota Tent. Stop by to check out intimate, bonus sets by artists playing the festival, including Tensnake (8pm Sunday) and L-Vis 1990 (7pm Sunday). Say hi to our host and house DJ Jamie Granato aka Rezound, design your own hula hoop, check out live art installations and more.
A few days after the festival, Kiesza will make her way to NYC where she'll play Best Buy Theater on September 8... with Nick Jonas. Maybe it seems weird to see a pop singer who's on the "indie" side play with a former boy-bander, but maybe Nick Jonas is heading in that direction too. He just hit the studio with Purity Ring's Corin Roddick. (And come on, you know you're a sucker for the Tinashe-featuring "Jealous" remix.) Will he be the next Timberlake? Or at least the next Miley? The NYC show also includes American Authors, Shawn Mendes and Timeflies.

Outkast / Kate Nash / Nas / Parquet Courts
Besides Eminem on Friday, Saturday was heavy on hip-hop heavyweights. First up was Nas, who dedicated the first half of his set to his 1994 debut album "Illmatic" from start to finish. Unlike Eminem, and other EDM-based acts this weekend, Nas commandeered the massive stage on his own, accompanied by only a DJ. "All I need is one mic, two turntables and you," he said. True enough, those songs remain poignant, especially the funk saga "N.Y. State of Mind," the jazz-fused street scenes of "It Ain't Hard to Tell" and "One Love," a universal shout-out to incarcerated friends. The personal imagery in those songs, combined with his solitary presence onstage, summoned the sense of a testimonial before God, his peers, a lover, his family -- It was all packed in there ready for unpacking. - [Chicago Sun Times]Day Two at Lollapalooza 2014 seemed mostly smooth sailing, seeing performances by hip hop icons Outkast and Nas, indie rock from Parquet Courts and Spoon, not to mention Kate Nash, Vic Mensa, Phosphorescent, Duke Dumont and lots more. Pictures from Saturday (8/2) are in this post.

Pitchfork just posted their Top 100 Tracks of 2013. It's got what some people might call the worst song ever, the song with the most talked-about rap verse of the year, some surprises, and some of the year's most undeniable songs. Their #1 pick is certainly one of those undeniable songs, whether or not you're a fan of the artist who made it. What do you think of their list? Did your favorite song make it? Any glaring omissions?
Check out the full top 100 below...

IO Echo @ PS1 Warm Up 8/31/2013
LA indie dancepop duo IO Echo just played the penultimate 2013 MoMA PS1 Warm Up on Saturday (8/31). We posted a full set from the entire day earlier today and another set from IO Echo's performance is in this post.
The band play NYC again tonight (9/3), opening for Haim at Webster Hall which is sold out. Haim is in the area after playing Philly's Made In America (pics and more pics) over the weekend. IO Echo will be joining Haim on their October dates on the West Coast as well, and those are listed below.
Haim's debut album, Days Are Gone, will be out September 30 on Columbia. There's a deluxe edition coming out in the UK with a bonus disc's worth of remixes done by the like's of Studio's Dan Lissvik, Psychemagik, Duke Dumont and more. You can check out The Tourist's remix of "The Wire" which removes some of the original's more overt Eagles-isms and replaces them with synth steel drums, taking things into balearic territory. Stream that below.
All dates are listed, along with more IO Echo pictures and the Haim remix, below...

UK house producer Duke Dumont, whose single, "Need U 100%" is one of the better recent tracks of its kind, and who was recently in NYC for a free outdoor show, will be kicking off a short North American tour later this month leading up to his August 3 appearance at HARD Summer in LA. The tour begins in NYC on July 25 at Output's Panther Room (the same day that James Murphy plays the main room). Tickets for that show are on sale now at Resident Advisor and Ticketfly. Show flyer and tour flyer below.
Duke recently released the followup single to "Need U 100%" with a new track called "Hold On" (feat. MNEK), that has a bit more of a James Blake vibe than its club-friendly predecessor. He also recently dropped a new HARD Summer Mixtape, which you can stream, along with "Hold On" and "Need U 100%," below...
TOKiMONSTA at SS Coachella 2012 (more by Greg Cristman)
THUMP is VICE's new electronic site and they're celebrating the launch of Up Next, "the destination for what's next in dance music," with a free show in NYC on Hudson River Park's Pier 84 on June 20. (That's the old River Rocks spot.) The show is being headlined by Zedd, but it'd be worth stopping by for the openers, Duke Dumont and TOKiMONSTA. The show also will have "interactive fireworks inspired by the artists' music" and a custom LED structure for the artists to perform in. Plus, there's an open bar (so the show is 21+).
Duke Dumont just had his big single, "Need U (100%)" remixed by porn star Jessie Andrews (who doubles as DJ). Check out that remix (via Noisey) below...

As you probably know by now, Disclosure's excellent debut album, Settle, came out this week (6/4) and it pretty much deservedly put them at the top of this whole house revival. But as with all of these types of trends, there are other great artists taking part in it too, and one of those is UK producer Duke Dumont, whose single, "Need U 100%" (feat A*M*E), is one of the better dance tracks this year. You can watch the song's video below.
The track was just given remix treatment by UK garage veterans Artful Dodger, whose track, "No I Turn You On," was recently remixed by Disclosure, who (to bring things full circle) just covered Duke Dumont's "Need U 100%" with collaborator Sam Smith. Got all that? Good.
You can listen to Disclosure's "Need U 100%" cover and hear them talk about it on Sara Cox's BBC Radio 1 show (it comes on around 2 hours and 11 minutes) or listen to a rip of it below. On that same radio show, they performed "You & Me," which you can watch a video of below. Artful Dodger's remix of the track and Disclosure's remix of Artful Dodger can be streamed below too.
Duke went on a North American tour earlier this month which brought him to NYC for a FIXED show at LPR, but his only upcoming dates at the moment are in Europe except for HARD Summer 2013 in LA (which Disclosure also plays).
!!! at Sasquatch 2011 (more by Josh Darr)
As previously discussed, !!! will be in town for a show at Music Hall of Williamsburg on Thursday (12/13) with Sinkane (who will open for Solange next week) and Yellow Dogs. Tickets for the show are still available and we're also giving away a pair. Details on how to enter to win are below.
Meanwhile, !!! frontman Nic Offer recently spoke to us about his favorite albums and songs of the year. Like Nic's own music, the list skews mainly electronic and electronic-tinged pop, and he makes room for a few other interesting inclusions too. Nic is also now the second artist we've spoke to to include the various artists compilation, Personal Space: Electronic Soul 1974-1984. You can check out the whole list below.
