LOS ANGELES, Aug. 28 /PRNewswire/ — On Saturday, September 29th, 2007, The 2nd Annual Neighborhood Music Festival will bring an avant-garde musical line-up to the greater Los Angeles area. Designed to give emerging indie artists a platform to flaunt their unique, pioneered sounds, DIM MAK Records and Stake Productions have joined forces to showcase a broad range of ground- breaking talent before a trendsetting, tastemaking audience. With a shared passion for innovative and distinctive music, (DJ) Steve Aoki of DIM MAK Records and Meelo Solis of Stake Productions wanted to create a festival that would push exciting and dynamic indie music to the forefront of the LA music scene. With Aoki’s reputation for “breaking bands” (such as Bloc Party and Sh*t Disco) and Solis’ (festival) production background combined, their talents fuse to deliver an eclectic line-up that represents an unparalleled blend of indie electro, remixed hip-hop, indie hip-hop and rock, creating a distinct musical aesthetic, currently unmatched by any other festival.
After the success of last year’s event and much anticipation, this year’s line-up is even bigger and better and aimed at continuing to establish the “Neighborhood Music Festival” brand. Headliners for 2007 include: The Faint, Mickey Avalon and Spank Rock with special guests — Steve Aoki and DJ AM hitting the decks. Known for spinning at some of the hottest club scenes around the world, this will mark AM’s very first festival in the United States.
All of the performers involved embody a niche music sound that appeals to the educated “ear-to-the-ground” market. While the 16 performers gracing the Neighborhood Music Festival stage may not be house-hold names, those who are ahead-of-the-game appreciate them as cutting-edge musicians who we are going to hear a lot more from soon. Confirmed performers include: A-Trak (Kanye West’s DJ), Crystal Castles (Canadian Group, heavy on remixes, such as The Klaxons), Flosstradamus (duo DJ team who just rocked Lollapalooza), Sh*t Disco (UK-based band), Amanda Blank (female rapper and Spank Rock collaborator), Kid Sister (Kanye West protege), and Them Jeans (LA-based promoter & DJ) just to name a few.
Exclusive access to the VIP Backstage Tent will be available for eager fans who are 21 & up for a cool $80 (general admission sells for $40). VIPs in the tent will have the opportunity to hear Stretch Armstrong, Brent Bolthouse, DJ Vice, Desert Eagles, Chad Muska, and Adam 12 (of She Wants Revenge) while rubbing elbows with the music elite. To boot, Aoki’s forth-coming debut mix album “Pillowface and the Airplane Chronicles” dropping in early October (07) will feature many of the same artists he has helped to put on the bill for this year’s festival and will likely be an annual tradition going-forward. Though the goal is to grow Neighborhood Music Festival as an annual Southern California festival with larger and additional bands each year, Aoki and Solis haven’t lost focus of who they’re creating the music for; “It’s all about the kids,” Aoki and Solis agreed. With that in mind, they have every intention of keeping the music fresh, emerging and indie — always.
Neighborhood Music Festival 2007 will take place at Exposition Park on Saturday, September 29, 2007, with general main stage music kicking off at 4PM (and going until approximately 2AM). Tickets for the festival can be
bought online at http://www.TicketWeb. com, and in-store at participating Active Ride Shop locations in the Southern California area (full list available on the official NMF site).
