The 5th edition of the iHeartRadio Music Festival kicks off this Friday, September 18, in Las Vegas, NV. While there are music festivals out there to suit all tastes in music, the iHeartRadio Music Festival is one of the few to bring all those styles together in one place thanks to an extensive variety of artists. In 2015, performers at the two-day festival include everyone from The Weeknd to Kenny Chesney to Diplo, among other huge names such as Kanye West, Duran Duran, Sam Smith, Blake Shelton, Janet Jackson, and Coldplay.
Iconic German electronic band Kraftwerk is kicking off a brief North American leg of their "3D Concert Tour" tonight, when they visit Edmonton, Alberta's North Alberta Jubilee Auditorium. After spending a couple days in Canada, the band will hop over to Portland, OR; Denver, CO; Austin, TX; Boston, MA; and points in between. The 12-date leg will end on October 9 in Kansas City, MO.
Considered pioneers in the electronic music scene, Kraftwerk was formed in 1970 by Florian Schneider in Düsseldorf, Germany, after already being present in the country's experimental music scene for some time. Their early work popularized electronic music and they are known for a minimalistic music and lyrics, their pioneering use of vocoders, and improvisation on stage.

History of Rap 6
This past week, Jimmy Fallon and Justin Timberlake debuted their sixth installment of the “History or Rap,” the segment where they don’t really give a history lesson, but more or less just rap snippets from an assortment of hip hop tracks on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. As always, the duo does not fail to entertain. This time around they performed everything from “Fight the Power” by Public Enemy, to Ignition (Remix) by R. Kelly, to “My Way” by Fetty Wap.
The tour and accompanying album have been in the works for at least a year. While die-hard fans will know this already, the news of the tour took some casual fans by surprise. However, Ozzy and the boys told Rolling Stone as far back as September of last year that they planned on recording one last album and embarking on a tour in 2016. The End time has almost come!
