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 their sound that connects with a wide swath of music fans.
MUSINK 2016 is produced by Bill Hardie, Travis Barker, John Reese of Synergy Global Entertainment (SGE) and Sean Akhavan. MUSINK partners include KROQ, Rockstar Energy Drink, Famous Stars and Straps, Tecate, Johnny's Saloon, Second Floor and Golden Crown Barber Shop.
