YouTube debuts videos for second music awards

Yahoo! Music News - Tue, 03/24/2015 - 17:52

YouTube taking on Twitch, relaunching livestreaming serviceYouTube on Monday premiered videos from 14 musicians as it tried a new, virtual-only format for the second edition of its music awards. The giant video-sharing site had searched for a new approach after a mixed reaction to its inaugural event in 2013, which featured a livestreamed show from New York that appeared aimed at creating a new-media rival to the MTV Video Music Awards. For the second try, YouTube dispensed with the physical world entirely and announced the winners ahead of time and instead used Monday's "awards" day to premiere new videos. They included "El Perdon," a collaboration between Spanish superstar Enrique Iglesias and reggaeton artist Nicky Jam, as well as a song featuring English singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran and the electronica-influenced band Rudimental.

Ricky Martin performs at the iHeartRadio Theater Los Angeles in Burbank, CaliforniaThirty years after Ricky Martin got his start in music in the Puerto Rican kids' group "Menudo," the Grammy-winning singer uses his music and celebrity to help fight against the trafficking of children. Fresh off a new album, "A Quien Quiera Escuchar," the 43-year-old Martin said he relishes getting in front of a crowd to talk about children forced into prostitution and pornography. "Not only in Puerto Rico, all over the world, here in the United States, huge numbers, when it comes to kids that are becoming slaves," Martin told Reuters in an interview this week. The "Livin' la Vida Loca" singer opened a center in Puerto Rico last year to combat oppression against children.

Firefly Music Festival slashes single-ticket option

Yahoo! Music News - Thu, 03/19/2015 - 00:37

British singer Paul McCartney, headliner at the Firefly Music Festival.The organizers behind the Firefly Music Festival have eliminated single-day tickets for the four-day event. The decision to abandon the single-day ticket option, as reported by Billboard, is a bold move by organizers but one that could pay off -- with attendance this year predicted to be its first-ever sell-out, within the range of 90,000 fans a day. Firefly Music Festival debuted in 2012 and has been increasing in popularity each year, with this year's star-studded line-up touted as one of its best, including headline acts Paul McCartney, the Killers and Kings of Leon. Firefly Music Festival will take place June 18-21 in the The Woodlands behind the Dover International Speedway in the US state of Delaware.
