Relevant Content is a bi-weekly podcast for Aux.Out. in which hosts Will Ryan (Beats Per Minute, Diffuser) and Philip Cosores (Director of Aux.Out., the OC Register) discuss topical issues with guest industry experts and personalities. Sometimes there is yelling. Always there is talking over one another. And, hopefully, there is a greater understanding of the complexities of the music world that one mind alone may not be able to fully capture in an essay.
This week Will and Phil considered devoting all the time to Arcade Fire, but decided against it. Instead, they discuss the Phil’s recent trip to Rock the Bells, which Phil argues is the worst music festival. Ever. They’re joined by guests Max Bell (L.A. Weekly, Passion of the Weiss), Hilary Hughes (Esquire, Rolling Stone) and Zach Hart (We Listen For You) to ponder the problems with some music festivals, and just how these problems can be fixed.
