EDM, Rock, Hip-Hop, Alternative, 80’s, and 90s are the music genres that poke out at many when asked about current trends vs. past.
The buzz surrounding the lineup for XOXO has brought a frenzy on social media and a wave of speculation surrounding main headliners.
EDM fans should expect no shortage of sounds and stages to choose from. House, drum and bass, tech-house, and dubstep are only a few of the vibes we are willing to give out.
Going to the opposite end of the spectrum, Rock and Classic rock fans attract a whole different element in itself. Baby boomers and fans of bands like Kiss, Poison, and Spin Doctors will not be disappointed with the bands that XOXO plans to bring out.
Hip-hop may have as many critics as fans, but festivals and events never show a shortage of rap names like Lil Uzi Vert, Lil Yachty, and Lil Pump. Distinguishing the two, however, hip-hop names that have painted their way onto some of the biggest lineups include Kendrick Lamar, J Cole, and even Wu-Tang Clan.
The 90’s era brought a wave of colorful artists’ from hip-hop to pop. From pop boy bands like Backstreet Boys and NSYNC to female hip-hop groups like TLC, SWV, and Spice Girls.
The 90’s ushered in both male and female groups that individually and collectively created and inspired teens and young adults around the U.S. with upbeat production, positive lyricism, and inspirational messages.
How does someone talk about America and not mention the 80’s? Arguably, one of the most progressive and forward-thinking times in music, the 80’s was an era full of bright lights, odd fashion, break dancing, and big hair.
From the 80’s to date there has been a rapid change in the way music is consumed and distributed across the world. Different genres are marketed in various ways on different Internet channels in order to ensure it is received by the appropriate market.
This is WCE’s approach to bringing out as many music fans as possible in order to create a Bay Area event surrounding culture, food, art, and inclusion.
