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.

Bonde Do Role at Bowery Ballroom in 2008 (more by Bao Nguyen)
Back in June, we mentioned that the Mad Decent Block Parties were returning this summer and then earlier this month, they revealed a list of artists, but didn't say who was playing each city. Now venues have been revealed for all five parties and the lineups for NYC Philly, and Toronto have been announced as well. The FREE NYC party will happen on August 5 at WIlliamsburg Park (in previous years it was at the South Street Seaport) with Major Lazer, Erol Alkan, Bonde Do Role, Lunice, Riff Raff, Mr Muthafuckin' eXquire, Reptar, Zebra Katz, Bosco Delrey, Baauer, Kito, and Paul Devro. The parties are free and all ages but RSVP is required. All announced lineups are listed below.
Speaking of Lunice, his collaborative project with Hudson Mohawke, TNGHT (pronounced "tonight") released their self titled debut EP this week (7/24) via Warp/Lucky Me. If you've yet to hear it, you can stream the entire thing below.
As for Bonde Do Role, the block party will be their first NYC show quite a while. You may remember that their original singer, Marina Ribatski left the band in 2007 and was replaced by two other singers, Ana Bernardino and Laura Taylor, who joined the band by winning an audition done with MTV Brasil. Ana has since left the band too and they are now a 3-piece fronted only by Laura Taylor. The new incarnation of the band put out their first album in five years, Tropical/Bacanal, last month via Mad Decent. The album was co-produced by Diplo and Filip Nikolic of Poolside (who have two NYC shows this week). The album features guest appearances from Caetano Veloso, Das Racist, Cecile, Rizzle Kicks, and The Death Set (who also has a NYC show coming up). The video for album track "Kilo" and a stream of another track, "Bang," which features Kool AD of Das Racist, are below.
