Tribute To Angel Parra Planned For Chilean Rock Festival

Tune Collective Staff

Published

The children of the Chilean folk musician, who died March 11, will perform in his honor along with other artists.

Angel Parra first sang songs with his mother, the famous Chiliean singer and folklorist Violeta Parra. He and his sister Isabel made their debuts performing with the matriarch of the musical family on tour in Europe in the 1960s, making known the music of their country. Back home, the brother and sister would become leaders of Chile’s “New Song” folk movement, giving voice to popular protest. In 2015, they founded the Violeta Parra Museum, which announced the news of Angel Parra’s death on March 11.

Parra’s daughter Javiera, a singer, and son Angel, a guitarist, both well-known rock artists in Chile. In recent years, Parra made appearances with his children, and he was considered a father to a new generation of socially-concscious Chilean artists.

The elder Angel Parra passed away from complications from cancer in a hospital in Paris, where he had lived for decades. He fled Chile after being jailed immediately following the country’s 1973 military coup. Parra’s ashes are to be laid to rest in Valparaiso, the Chilean city in which he was born. He was 73 years old.

Javiera and Angel were already scheduled to perform at Santiago’s Bicentennial Park this Sunday, March 19, at Rec Rock, Chile’s largest free festival. They were set to play a 50-minute set of their versions of their grandmother Violeta Parra’s songs. The performance will now be a tribute to their father, as well as to the musical inheritance that Violeta left the family. Alex Anwandter and Alvaro Lopez of rock group Los Bunkers are among those set to appear with Javiera and Angel Parra during the festival homage.

Amsterdam Dance Event (ADE), the world’s leading event for electronic music, have announced that the 23rd edition will take place from the 17th to 21st of October, 2018. The organizers are expecting around 400,000 national and international visitors.

During ADE there will be a range of activities focused on South Korea. Director Richard Zijlma states: “The South Korean electronic music scene is growing rapidly, thanks to technological innovation and smart crossovers. During ADE we will focus on the very best the country has to offer across a wide range of festival and conference events.”

The Amsterdam Dance Event (ADE), an initiative of Buma, is the world’s largest club-based festival and conference for electronic music. The event continues to grow and develop each year, with last year’s edition featuring over 2,500 artists and 550 speakers in a record breaking 160 venues. The event attracted visitors from over 90 countries over five days featuring every conceivable aspect of electronic music culture.

The organizers are committed to growing the day and nighttime activities once again in 2018 through established partnerships with cultural institutions, and by adding new pavilions focused on countries. “The addition of pavilions creates extra possibilities to meet and network for music industry professionals but also provides a means to show the innovative power of individual territories in front of an international audience,” states Zijlma.

The complete day and night program will be announced over the coming months. For more information about ADE: www.amsterdam-dance-event.nl/about-ade

It’s been 2 years since we’ve moved in on Dallas, Tx to witness what is easily one of the top 3 edm spectacles to end the year with. Lights All Night Always happens the last week end of the year and they do their best to bring the new year at an amazing height to the ragers, shufflers, bass, and house heads! With the bubble, which some say has “done popped”, moving into the double digits it’s hard to surprise or impress us most of us these days. I think the only way to really get into our music needing souls they just have to tap into what we want to hear live. Bring on the largest names and artist that borderline cult followings. I get in trouble when doing these reviews and recaps because I can say something about everyone so first new years resolution is to just kind of recap for the review. 😉

With Tune Collective we always want the good things last so let’s point out a few things that didn’t really work. The special guest, Ugly God + Smokepurpp kind of flopped. I don’t know if they artist weren’t ready for the edm kids or the festival wasn’t ready for the artist. Sound was distorted and the crowds were a bit lacking. The first few hours were a bit disorganized but you can tell they were really working on fixing all things and getting it cleared up. That was really it as far as bad things are concerned. O yea…… send out condolences to Illenium. That poor guy lost power a couple of times. It wasn’t a live set so I’m not sure we can really place blame on him. Small things that happen some times at festivals.

Where Lights All Night got things right this year was bringing in artist that have artist that are on borderline cult like. Bassnectar has the bassheads. Marshmello has the mellogang. AC Slater is the leader of Night Bass. Destructo is king of shipfam and what seems like distant cousins with Dirtybird these days. Lights All Night recognized that while these guys aren’t at the top 100 they carry something that is far more superior, dedicated fans!

The other artist are steady on the rise and were definitely not slouching on bringing heat. OOkay and Seven Lions for sure had the best sets of the weekend. The music stood out and the production was amazing! Ookay performed his live set and it was definitely a breath of fresh air. 80s synthy pop music and a key tar! A freaking key tar I tell ya! Holly & Sayer played weird bass music that just makes you pay attention because it’s just weird and weird is good. It stands out. While they were second on the bass stage on day two they had a crowd that was probably at it’s biggest for the day. It was good. An artist to keep a look out for is Devault. He’s a trap artist but his sets are interesting and mixed full with what seems like different remixes than what everyone else is playing. That is definitely a heater that people should look out for.

Production was solid with the big leds, cryo cannons, confetti, and loud sound. When you have a festival like this it’s good to focus on the artist, lights, and sound. There really is not enough time for most anything else. It seems like that Lights All Night has figured out how to continue bringing in strong crowds ready for a great festival. Lights All Night is definitely a great way to end the year!
