AEG Facilities Dominates 2015 Year-End Rankings

Sacramento-born and raised brother duo Hippie Sabotage started to make music in the mid-2000s. Working closely with local producer Chase Moore during their early career, they mixed the cultural melting pot vibes of their hometown with hip-hop and produced beats for rappers such as J. Leake and Yukmouth. They later collaborated with Chicago-based artists such as Calez of 2008ighties and Kami de Chukwu. Hippie Sabotage developed and expanded their beats and soon incorporated more diverse influences on their tracks for a whole new host of rappers such as Alex Wiley ("Something to Say") and C Plus ("Callin' Me"). They released their own material with the EP Vacants in early 2013 and followed this with a couple more singles ("White Tiger" and "Sunny") throughout the same year. It was only in spring 2014 when singer Ellie Goulding posted their remix for "Stay High" by Swedish singer Tove Lo (songwriter for the likes of Icona Pop and Girls Aloud) on Instagram that they began to get worldwide attention. “Stay High” has 360 million plays on YouTube and counting: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SYM-RJwSGQ8. The song reached over a million hits following Goulding's endorsement and signaled a bright future for the duo. ~ Aneet Nijjar, Rovi HIPPIE SABOTAGE W/ SPECIAL GUESTS TOUR DATES: February 25 – San Diego, CA – The Observatory North Park February 27 – Sacramento, CA – Ace of Spades March 1 – Seattle, WA – Showbox March 2 – Portland, OR – Wonder Ballroom March 4 – Salt Lake City, UT – Kilby Court March 5 – Denver, CO – Ogden Theatre March 6 – Fort Collins, CO – Aggie Theatre March 8 – Kansas City, MO – Riot Room March 10 – Minneapolis, MN – Mill City Nights March 11 – Chicago, IL – Concord Music Hall ** w/Haywyre March 12 – Madison, WI - Majestic March 15 – Ferndale, MI – The Magic Bag March 16 – Toronto, ON – Mod Club March 17 – Burlington, VT – Higher Ground March 18 – Philadelphia, PA - Coda March 21 – Washington, DC – U Street Music Hall March 23 – Charleston, SC –Music Farm March 24 – Atlanta, GA – Terminal West March 25 – St. Petersburg, FL – State Theatre March 26 – Ft.
