The 6th annual Electric Forest (EF) kicked off Thursday, June 23, welcoming 45,000 Forest Family to Rothbury, Michigan for a music and camping experience of a lifetime. The beloved festival sold out in record time again this year – a mere two weeks after tickets went on sale and prior to any lineup announcement. 

In anticipation of their new studio album, Totem, The Motet reveal today the official video of previously unreleased track “Fool No More.” The video brings alive the artwork from Totem for a funky, psychedelic journey through the album’s second single.

Following this past May's release of Electronica Vol 2: The Heart Of Noise and 2015's Electronica Vol 1: The Time Machine, French electronic music pioneer JEAN-MICHEL JARRE has set out on the ELECTRONICA WORLD TOUR.

For most, the month of September marks the end of another Summer filled with BBQs, roof-top parties, and the festival season. But just as you thought the season is over, Area Event is announcing the return of the one-of-a-kind Electric Adventure, the only music festival held on the sunny beaches of Atlantic City, for it’s fifth year anniversary bash on September 24 and 25, extending your time for fun in the sun just a little longer. 

On January 1st, 2016,​ an intimate gathering of the UM faithful descended upon the Fillmore Auditorium in Denver for a rare Storytellers show accompanying the premier of our Reel to Real documentary. Taking time in between songs, we dug deep into the songwriting and lyrical process, shared stories of song origins, and cracked jokes in classic UM fashion.

Grateful Web caught up with Royal Jelly Jive’s Lauren Bjelde & Jesse Lemme Adams while they were on a remote chili pepper farm in Oregon. They are touring in support of their new release Stand Up.  This album speaks volumes of their retro style with an overwhelming sense of unity and blissful love.  Twelve tracks describe the Jellies style as they take you on a musical tour of the life they live and how they live it.
