Grimes - (Set time: 8:00 PM)

After opening select dates this past summer for Lana Del Rey’s “Endless Summer” Tour, Grimes will showcase her unique, live experience in her much anticipated headlining tour. As in the past, fans have come to expect the unexpected from the self- taught producer, singer, multi-instrumentalist, visual artist and director. The “Rhinestone Cowgirl” Tour, her first headlining tour since 2012, promises to be no different. Grimes’ music, art and aesthetic were described by Vogue as “DIY couture.” The highly anticipated follow up to her last LP “Visions” is expected this fall.
Tei Shi - (Set time: 7:00 PM)
Tei Shi

Meet Tei Shi, an Argentina-born songstress who spent her early years moving frequently across Bogota, Vancouver and later Boston. Tei Shi is the moniker of Valerie Teicher, an artist who now calls New York City home and whose star has been rising steadily since she released her debut track “M&Ms” in the summer of 2013. The song spread like wildfire in the blog world, including Gorilla vs Bear who described the track as a “soulful time-stretching future pop gem.” Her debut EP Saudade, was the result of a collaboration with producer Luca Buccellati and was met with much critical acclaim.

Since then, Tei Shi hasn’t stopped, playing music festivals across North America as well as her own sold out dates. Teicher has also collaborated with the UK’s rock band Glass Animals on the track “Holiest” which debuted at #1 on Hype Machine. In the Spring 2015, Tei Shi released her new EP Verde. The latest release is yet another musical step forward for the artist and includes her infectious and irresistible single “Bassically” a “rippling nu-disco-esque jam” (V magazine) that has leapt well over 4.5 million streams on Spotify. Tei Shi is currently working on her debut album
HANA - (Set time: 6:15 PM)

Singer, songwriter and producer HANA debuted in May 2015 with her stunning new track titled “Clay.” Described by Lorde as "too beautiful and sparkling for words,” “Clay” serves as the perfect audio introduction to one of the most exciting and promising artists to have emerged in 2015.

Atlanta born, Montana raised, HANA has spent years on the road in North America, perfecting her craft as a songwriter and performer, traveling state to state, year-round. In 2013, she decided to take a break and re-assess her life on the road, prompting her to sell the van, live off of that money and move into an old warehouse in downtown LA. It was there that she locked herself away and spent the next year learning how to record and produce music by herself. It was during this period that she was able to fully execute her vision musically, thus creating these stunning new tracks that have since gotten everyone intrigued and talking about HANA.

Recently, the young American artist completed her first major North American tour singing alongside Grimes, in support of Lana Del Rey.
