The Miami qualifier for Red Bull King of the Rock, a one-on-one basketball tournament where the finals are held on the island of Alcatraz. In 2010, Red Bull King of the Rock went down in history as the first official sporting event ever to be held on Alcatraz and the first time basketball had been played on The Rock since the inmates left the island over 50 years ago. Now in its third year, the global one-on-one basketball tournament will return with the most competitive field to date. Bigger and better than ever, Red Bull King of the Rock has expanded to qualifiers in 27 countries, including 33 in the United States. From these qualifiers, 64 finalists will head to the island to put it all on the line in The Yard on Alcatraz on September 22.

Summer Camp held a number of unanswered questions as we traveled our way through the cornfields of Central Illinois towards our home for the next 4 days, Chillicothe, Illinois. Having virtually traded in my piles of Phish, Moe., and Umphrey’s albums and compilations after years of high school and college jam sessions for a more electronic-based library a few years ago, I knew Summer Camp would be a trip down memory lane, and hopefully one that I would still enjoy. What I found at Summer Camp were the people, sounds, and adventures that made me fall for music and especially music festivals in the first place. While I still spent a majority of my time hunting down my bass music fix, the jam-based festival as a whole was an excellent one that combined about as many elements of the fantastic culture as it could. Here were just some of the highlights.
With a little less than two months until Lollapalooza, fans already have a hand on this year’s schedule. As we all know, this year’s Lolla is stacked with dance music. Most of these artists will make their appearances at the Perry stage. Friday Night is crazy starting at 3:15 with Zedd then leading into Madeon, Porter Robinson, NERO and Bassnectar (can you guess where I’ll be?). The fun begins again at 3:15 on Saturday with Paper Diamond, B.o.B., Skream & Benga, Calvin Harris, Santigold at Perry’s and Avicii closing down on the Bud Light stage. Sunday is just as strong as the previous two days with Perry’s being taken over by Kid Color, DJ Nihal, Nadastorm, Little Dragon, Doctor P, Big Gigantic, Zeds Dead and Kaskade. Justice and Miike Snow will also be performing on other stages Sunday night.
Just incase you can’t dance enough at Lolla, there’s plenty of late night shows for you to attend. We’ve broken them down by day here. For more information on tickets and pricing, head over to do312
