As we drove down the 5 freeway headed to the Pacific Festival, the excitement level was rising like a hot kettle on the stove. With a loaded lineup headlined by Snoop Dogg & Cut Copy and artists such as Calvin Harris, Phantogram, Ghostland Observatory, Steve Aoki, Fred Falke, Bag Raiders, The C90’s, !!! (Chk, Chk, Chk) on the schedule, there was no better place to be on August 13th, 2011 than Oak Canyon Ranch in Orange County, California. Having VIP Backstage access was sure to make it epic. What follows is just that. E.P.I.C.

BtB presents: unofficial Pacific Festival 2011 mixtape

July 17th, 2011 by | Before Bigs Exclusive |

So were less than one month away to the first-ever Orange County Pacific Festival on August 13, 2011. I’m super excited for this festival as it features many underrated acts and I really respect the fact that the organizers of this festival were able to bring in so many quality acts in their first year of this festival. Here’s a cool Pacific Festival trailer to watch that has more info on the event.

Some of the notable acts performing include Snoop Dogg, Cut Copy, Steve Aoki, Calvin Harris, Ghostland Observatory, Phantogram, toro y moi, Bag Raiders, and many more! Buy tickets here.

I am so excited for the Pacific Festival that I decided to make a 25-track mixtape with my favorite songs from many of the artists performing on August 13, 2011 in Orange County, California.

Not so hidden gem: Ghostland Observatory

November 1st, 2010 by | Alternative/Indie, Dance |

I was going to label Ghostland Observatory “hidden gem” but with over 25,000 fans on facebook, I don’t think they are so unknown to get that label.

If you get a chance to see the Ghostland Observatory duo in concert, I heard they have laser’s, the dudes in the band dress up in weird outfits and it’s just a big fun party.

Their genre is an electronic genre-blending mix. Some songs I’m not the biggest fan, but these two below I really enjoy and hope you like as well.
