Let’s stare into the crystal ball and see what might happen in 2016.
Coachella – It’s pretty much confirmed that Guns ‘n Roses and LCD Soundsystem will headline. I’m going to guess that Axl will go on late, they’ll cut the cord and he’ll throw a tantrum and refuse to play the second weekend. Meanwhile, everyone will fall in love with LCD Soundsystem. They released a Christmas single in 2015 that is pretty awesome.
Kayne West – The new album is coming and he’s already upsetting people like Michael Jordan’s son, Marcus who tweeted.
“Yeezy just jumped over @Jumpman23 ??”????? LOL I needed a good laugh to start my #2016

Expect more people to be up in arms over the lyrical content but still loving the album. Here’s the first single, “Facts”.
Grammys– 2017 will be all about Adele. In the meantime with 11 nominations, expect Kendrick Lamar to take away the most Grammys this year and expect everyone to tweet “Who is Courtney Barnett?” when she wins for Best New Artist
Streaming subscriptions: Apple, Spotify, Pandora. Freemium is just about over. This will be the year you finally pay for a subscription.
Concerts: Still no substitute for seeing a live band. You will go to more shows this year!
