I was so inspired with The Weeknd’s video, Earned It, that I just had to update the look of the website. Thanks to the girls over at Sin21.org – I now have a more updated look since the first day I opened the website. The previous work was also created by Sin21.org. After seeing the premade layout up on their site I had to jump on it. While full credit is all thanks to them, I did; however, tweaked the layout a bit to make it “my own.” I hope you all enjoy this new look as much as I do!

The Weeknd is not shy when it comes to Indio’s biggest event of the year, Coachella Valley Arts & Music Festival. It has been confirmed today, January 6, 2015 that The Weeknd will be returning back to the valley. When The Weeknd was barely starting out his career he made his cameo at The Coachella Valley Music Festival back in 2012. Since then, The Weeknd’s popularity has grown immensely. While his set and stage was a smaller scale then you can surely expect The Weeknd to have a much larger crowd as well as a stage in 2015. The Festival is a consecutive based festival that will commence in April of 2015. I myself will be attending the festival being that it is in my home town also my “backyard.” Check out the rest of the line up, here! Or click the poster to the left to see the full scale image.
