It’s hard to believe that Coachella is now hours upon us. The annual desert frolic is one of our favorite festivals in the world, and lucky for us it’s right in our backyard. We have to commend Goldenvoice in a big way for this year’s bookings, as it seems like they’ve generally strayed from the widely acceptable cheesy bookings (like last year) and gone a bit more toward the edge. We at GDD™ have collectively come up with our top 5 picks per day, along with 3 honorable mentions as it was nearly impossible to only choose 5 acts. Check our must see list below, and we’ll see you out in the desert this weekend! Continue Reading
Southern California’s finest sun-drenched 3-day mega festival is right around the corner. We have all either heard the epic tales about the marvelous party in the desert, or better yet, experienced the magic ourselves. This year the lineup is tip-top, and we’re so excited to go dance around in the colorful desert with all of our friends, that we’ve decided to team up with Caliche Rum and give away 2 pairs of tickets!
Rules For Entry: 1. Take an epic sunset photo 2. Upload the photo & Tag @Calicherum, @GottaDanceDirty, #Setsforsets, on your Facebook/twitter/instagram accounts. 3. Share! Share! Share!

After an epic saga of a weekend @ Coachella Music Festival, the GDD™ crew return from the desert with a battered brain of new music to better prepare for the massive summer to come. This week, our very own Bones and Toks have answered the call to serving you with a dirty bundle of tunes fit for the festival-goer in all of us. Whether from artists that played Coachella, or just some of the key sounds that embody the stages, this team has it down for you and each specific playlist. Get your sweaty wristbands on them and let a’ rip.
To kick things off proper for the start of madness in the desert, VERSUS this week we’ll feature some heavy artillery to get your Coachella juices flowing. Making a stop on their US Tour, the Italian bad boys Blatta & Inesha will be gracing the decks for their second time. On top of that, we have the LA debut from the NY-based hood haus sounds of RL Grime. Supporting the night will be local heroes Matzerath (Dim Mak), Bangarang, and Zach V. Whether you’re going week one, week two, or not at all, come get your festival fix and forget about Friday morning.
The spirit of festival season is upon us, and with Coachella around the corner what better to hype you dirty dancers then with a BIG remix of the Gotye hit “Somebody That I Used To Know” that is more likely to be heard roaring from the SAHARA tent than the outdoor stage. Our friend and Overthrow brethren Damaged Goods took the indie anthem and put it into big room overdrive. Free Download?BOOM.
