Outside Lands

Another Planet Entertainment, Superfly and Starr Hill, in a partnership with the San Francisco Recreation and Park Department, have announced [the] lineup for the eighth annual Outside Lands Festival. After four consecutive sold-out years, the world's only gourmet music festival that Rolling Stone hailed as "one of America's best," and the Huffington Post called "a well-rounded cultural event," will once again take place in San Francisco's historic Golden Gate Park August 7 - 9, 2015. While the Eager Beaver on sale had the fastest sell-out in the history of the festival, a limited number of 3-Day General Admission and VIP regular tickets go on sale this Thursday, March 26th at 10am PDT via SFOutsideLands.com. A significant portion of every ticket sold will directly benefit San Francisco's Recreation and Park Department. The festival has given more than $10 million to the department since its inception.
The full lineup for this year's fest is listed, and in Funny or Die video form, below...

Phoenix at MSG in 2010 (more by Andrew St. Clair)
Phoenix

First, Phoenix announced that their long awaited followup to 2009's Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix would be out this April, then they revealed that it's called Bankrupt! and made their first North American show announcement of 2013: New Orleans Jazz Festival. They've since been revealed as a Coachella headliner and now they've got even more North American dates scheduled, including one that's not too far from NYC: Columbia, MD's Sweetlife Festival, which goes down at Merriweather Post Pavillion on May 11 (about a 3 and a half hour drive from NYC). Their schedule currently has a week or so free on either side of of the Sweetlife fest...hmm.

And the rest of Sweetlife lineup ain't too shabby either. Joining Phoenix will be Passion Pit, Kendrick Lamar, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Solange, Youth Lagoon, Holy Ghost!, Gary Clark Jr, MS MR, and more. Tickets for the festival go on sale Friday (2/8) at 10 AM with a presale beginning on Wednesday (2/6).

DeLon

Back in 2008 we posted a diss video by DeLon (watch it below), aimed at fellow Sri Lankan rapper M.I.A.. He mixed gruesome images with her popular song "Paper Planes" to get the point across that she was not a "freedom fighter", but in fact showing support for alleged terrorist group called the Tamil Tigers. M.I.A. responded, denying his accusations and claiming DeLon was just looking for publicity at her expense.

MIA and Delon

M.I.A. has continued to have an eventful life in the public spotlight since then, and DeLon (pictured above) is now just one of many on the long list of M.I.A. haters, but what has DeLon, who lives in Los Angeles, been up to for the past four years? Well, in addition to continuing his music career, which most recently included landing a spot on a tour with America's Got Talent artist Lindsey Stirling (I don't watch the show, so don't ask me who she is), DeLon has allegedly been dealing with "death threats and a vicious internet smear campaign aimed at destroying his reputation [that was] unleashed by Tiger supporters." Yeah, fun!

Now he says that campaign successfully cost him this latest tour. Today he announced that he was forced to quit the tour with Lindsey because "fans, sponsors and parents who took their kids to his concert were a Google search away from believing he was a criminal." In order to help clear his name, he has posted what looks like a letter from Sri Lanka Consul General Dr. Hector Weerasinghe in Los Angeles, which says DeLon is innocent of any crimes and backs up the allegations that "tactics" are being "used to vilify his character and sabotage his endeavors for peace". But now DeLon plans to take it even further and use his time off to work on scrubbing the dirt off the internet.

Check out a "news report" on YouTube that claims DeLon is a child predator, the original M.I.A. diss video, a video statement posted by DeLon today, and his full press release, below...
