We honor The Beatles on June 25 for Global Beatles Day via 360 MAGAZINE

GBD

June 25 marks the thirteenth celebration of Global Beatles Day (GBD). Given the state of the world, the event, which began in 2009, takes on a greater meaning this year. The Beatles core message of peace and love is, yet again, a rallying point for a call to action says the event’s founder. 

Faith Cohen, Indianapolis-based GBD founder has in the past suggested honoring the contributions of the Beatles in many ways including playing their music exclusively on that day to sharing historic and personal Beatles photos and memories among the band’s worldwide fan community.  This year, in addition to celebrating the special day (Ways To Celebrate – Global Beatles Day), she has a new call to action for June 25, the date that commemorates the historic worldwide television broadcast debut of ‘All You Need Is Love’ during 1967’s Summer of Love. As it happens this year June 25 coincides with a scheduled Paul McCartney performance at this year’s Glastonbury Festival and a concert appearance by Ringo Starr and his All Starr Band in Hollywood, FL. 

“For 2022, we would like to suggest that the band’s generations of fans around the globe consider sending an online link of the music video of ‘All You Need Is Love’ to 10 people who matter,” says Cohen. “This could be to family, friends and coworkers or elected officials.  It could be kings, queens, princes, presidents, ambassadors, military leaders and law enforcement organizations. We want them to send links to 10 people or organizations that matter in running our world and keeping it going. Then we want them to ask those ten entities to send it on to 10 more and ask them to do the same.  On and on. From the United States, Europe, Russia, China and even North Korea. Send the link to those in power, from the local to global level, who keep the world running.”

Faith asks the recipients to watch the All You Need video and use it as a measure of what the world could and needs to be.  Asked if it is overly optimistic she responds, “That is exactly the point.  It’s an idea that needs to be put out there once again, just as in 1967 when another war and societal pressures were at a boiling point.” Cohen feels that the meaning of the message of Global Beatles Day gives hope when hope is all we have. It’s idealistic but that’s what Paul, John, George and Ringo were in the first place.  Link 10 people who matter in the world to the message, and then 10 more and 10 more etc. 

Participants can click HERE to gain access to All You Need Is Love

Here’s a suggested message to your chosen recipients but please feel free to ‘get back’ with whatever you deem is appropriate and in the spirit of the band.  

In celebration of Global Beatles day I am sending you this video in the hopes of sharing messages of peace and joy. Please share this with 10 more people who can pass on this message and make a difference. 

The Beatles music and messages made the world a better place.  In continuing to use the date of June 25th for GBD, the holiday invites the world to celebrate the legacy of history’s most famous band. GBD is meant to honor the work of The Fab Four for their artistry and humanity.  It is strictly a noncommercial celebration for 24 hours that gives a nod to what can happen when a message and a song join up at the right time for the right reasons. The day has grown to become an internationally recognized celebration that has gained momentum each year it has occurred, having been recognized and celebrated by the surviving Beatles themselves, the Grateful Dead, The Afghan Whigs, Robyn Hitchcock, Peter Tork and many more. This year the All You Need Is Love video will be utilized as its centerpiece as a call to action. 

 Love is all you need.

Before – NIKI

Today, Jakarta-born, LA-based singer-songwriter, and producer NIKI unveils her new single and accompanying video for “Before.” The track is the first single from her forthcoming album Nicole. NIKI first announced the album on her social media pages earlier this week, read more HERE.

Stream/download the track HERE.

Watch the music video HERE.

The reflective record is tinged with nostalgia and sees NIKI yearning for a past relationship that has come to an end and grappling with navigating her feelings and how to let go. The reverb-drenched and scaled-back production of the track highlights NIKI’s lyrical ability to evoke strong emotions and sentimentality through her music.

“Before” continues to see NIKI shine revisiting her singer/songwriter roots through her genuine storytelling as seen on previous singles like “Split” released late last year.

In the accompanying music video, NIKI flies across the globe to the United States in an attempt to rekindle a relationship, but something feels amiss. The video is directed by Isaac Ravishankara and stars Indonesian-American actor Peter Adrian Sudarso opposite NIKI.

On the track, NIKI says “‘Before’ is the irresolute ending to my very first love story. I wrote it as a means to create the kind of closure I never had. I also feel itߣs ironically poetic to open this new chapter by telling you how it ends first. I’m so proud of it, and I can’t think of a better song to introduce the ultimate break-up record I’ve always fantasized of putting out but somehow haven’t until now.”

The release of “Before” comes fresh off the heels of NIKI’s unforgettable performance at Coachella in April, where she became the first Indonesian artist to ever perform at the festival, alongside Rich Brian. NIKI will follow up her Coachella appearance with a performance at 88rising’s 2022 Head in the Clouds Festival this August at Brookside at the Rose Bowl. NIKI previously performed at the 2021 Head in the Clouds Festival last November with a striking set that received acclaim from MTVFlaunt, and The AV Club who hailed her a “goddamn superstar.”

Watch her full performance at the festival HERE.

Most recently, 88rising and NIKI collaborated with Honda on a new docu-series that captured her journey to Coachella, storying her time leading up to her dazzling performance. 88rising is the first Asian music media partner to collaborate with Honda on their music program. The docu-series presented by Honda highlighted various firsts for NIKI from chronicling her first Coachella performance to watching her journey in her first car, a 2022 Honda CR-V Hybrid, capturing this full circle moment all while celebrating her Indonesian heritage, as both episodes were released last month during AAPI Month. Watch episode 1 HERE and episode 2 HERE.

To date, NIKI has accumulated over 1.8 billion streams across all platforms. Her hit single “Every Summertime” from the soundtrack of Marvel’s Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings recently went viral and currently has over 220 million streams and climbing. The track, written and produced by NIKI and longtime collaborator Jacob Ray is an exuberant love song with a throwback sound reminiscent of classic R&B and soul. Stream the track HERE.

The aforementioned “Split” comes from the upcoming Head In The Clouds 3 collaboration album, 88rising’s game-changing third installation of the world-building effort that brings together rising artists from East to West. A retro slowburn, complete with steel guitar and NIKI’s sweet rasp, “Split” sees the 23-year-old’s artistic force chronicling the ache of feeling split between two worlds and two homes. Like all her well-loved songs, “Split” leaves a mark

Listen to “Split” HERE.

ABOUT NIKI

With over 1.8 BILLION+ streams to date, 23-year-old NIKI has slammed the door on the conventions of pop stardomߞwriting, recording, and producing her music on her own. Born in Jakarta and based in Los Angeles, NIKI has captured the attention of audiences around the world, earning praise from Billboard “as one of the brightest rising stars.” Earning wide critical acclaim since her breakthrough “Zephyr”, and her debut album, “MOONCHILD”, NIKI has cultivated fans around the globe with her expressive voice, personal songwriting and genre-blurring artistry, becoming a vibrant symbol of and an advocate for a generation of Asian musical artists.

NIKI’s debut album “MOONCHILD” was released on September 10, 2020 and currently has over 172M streams to date. Complex called MOONCHILD “a full-length offering reflective of the Indonesian vocalist/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist growth and abilities.” i-D shared that NIKI’s storytelling on MOONCHILD was “something we can only aspire to do.” To date, NIKI has garnered over 1.8 B+ streams and received praises from outlets like Harper’s BAZAAR, Forbes, Teen Vogue, Hypebae, and more.

Most recently, NIKI’s song “Every Summertime,” which appeared on the Marvel, Shang-Chi Legend of The Legend Ten Rings Official Soundtrack landed on Spotify’s Today’s Top Hits and Pop Rising amongst others and has been streamed over 200 million times worldwide. She was also the first Indonesian artist, alongside Rich Brian to ever take the stage at Coachella. She is also currently the face of Guess Originals Spring campaign.

With her Indonesian heritage essential to her story, she feels “a social responsibility representing Asian artists, especially as a role model for girls.” For aspiring Asian and Asian American talents aiming to break cultural norms and overcome music industry under-representation, NIKI proves that the highest dreams are indeed within reach.

Throughout the three-day festival, SSBD will become a waterfront paradise across four stages: the Coconut Club, the Same Stage, the But Stage and the Different Stage. So that attendees never miss a beat, SSBD’s sets will flow into each other, leading guests from one experience to the next. Coconut Club’s bespoke stage will start each day with a festival highlight—lakefront floatopia day parties—where music lovers dance on decorated floats and warm sands. As the sun sets, music will transition to the Same Stage, another stunning waterfront setup, and the Different Stage, a lush renegade experience where planned and unexpected performances take shape. 

Amplifying the 2022 festival experience, SSBD has partnered with Chris Racan as co-producer of the event; Be The Beam, producers behind the world’s first NFT-gated festival Afterparty; and renowned San Diego music festival KAABOO. SSBD’s eclectic 2022 lineup will span emerging talents to established jam bands, top-tier electronic selectors and more. The full lineup will be released soon. In addition to music, festival goers can enjoy a wide range of educational workshops, yoga and wellness activities, arts and crafts, and more from experts in their field. 

For the first time, SSBD’s fully-immersive experience will take over the entirety of Lake Perris State Park. The palm tree-dotted shores will offer upgraded amenities including lush grass areas, electric car camping, backstage VIP experiences, state park-maintained bathrooms and showers, RV parking and hookups, parking shuttles and more. 

While not mandatory, SSBD encourages camping, which is included with every GA and VIP pass. Early bird pricing begins at $225 for general admission, which includes access to the campgrounds from 3 PM Thursday, Sept. 8 until 3 PM Monday, Sept. 12. Early bird VIP festival passes start at $440 and provide camping access, VIP entry, backstage lounges with shade zones, a full bar, premium air-conditioned bathrooms, reserved stage views and more. Limited time remains for festival goers to take advantage of early bird pricing. 

SSBD also offers a range of parking and camping add-ons. The Up-Front Gold Parking Pass, priced at $155, provides parking adjacent to the campgrounds. The Campsite + Car-Camping Parking Pass, priced at $185, provides a parking spot directly next to the attendee’s campsite, closer access to showers and restrooms, a personal grill and a picnic table. The Electric Campsite + Car-Camping Parking Pass, available for $355, reserves a campsite closest to the stages, access to a personal 20-amp power circuit, nearby access to showers and restrooms, a personal grill and a picnic table.

Attendees may also opt for remote lot parking with shuttle services to their campsite. Prices begin at $45 for the Remote Lot Parking Pass; $65 for the Bronze Lot Parking Pass, which includes access to a drop-off zone; and $99 for the Silver Lot Parking Pass, which allows closer entry to the campgrounds and a drop-off zone. RV Campers may purchase parking with hookups and a campsite for $395, or a lot without hookups or a campsite for $165.

For each ticket purchase, Same Same But Different plants groups of trees to help restore ecosystems and assist local populations in areas impacted by deforestation as part of the festival’s commitment to sustainability. Last year, the festival planted over 18,000 trees and has a goal of 40,000 in 2022.
