Multiplatinum artist, actor and entertainment icon Snoop Dogg is at the forefront of popular culture with award-winning albums and songs, multiple films, lifestyle products, philanthropic efforts, and digital ventures, including his YouTube original series “GGN News.” Snoop Dogg has sold over 30 million albums worldwide and received multiple Grammy® nominations.
Since Deftones’ inception, the multiplatinum, Grammy-winning alternative rock band from Sacramento, CA have quietly been pursuing two paths, delivering songs defined by churning, double-fisted aggression while also testing the boundaries of music by incorporating elements of psychedelia and shoegaze. Deftones have released seven albums to date and have sold over 10 million albums worldwide.
In their decade-plus career, critically acclaimed progressive rock band Circa Survive have continued to challenge themselves and test the boundaries of musical genres. With each album they’ve gone outside their musical comfort zone, jumping between post-rock, psychedelic, prog, post-hardcore and shoegaze, creating a sound that’s uniquely theirs yet has the power to connect with a wide swath of music fans.
