Consequence of Sound (CoS) is a Chicago-based online magazine[3] featuring news, editorials, and reviews of music and movies. In addition, the website also features the Festival Outlook micro-site, which serves as an on-line database for music festival news and rumors.

The website takes its name from the Regina Spektor song, "Consequence of Sounds".[4]

Influence[edit]

Consequence of Sound is listed as one of the most influential music websites by Technorati.[5] In 2010, About.com ranked CoS the year's best music blog, based on "Technorati rankings and the online buzz throughout the year".[6] In the Spring of 2014, Style of Sound calculated that Consequence of Sound charted as the second most influential music blog.[7]

Controversy[edit]

A popular feature of Consequence of Sound is the Festival Outlook, posting rumors regarding bands playing music festivals. However, it has caused some controversy.[why?] In 2009, CoS reported that Paul McCartney and The Killers would headline the 2009 Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival prior to its lineup announcement.[8]
