Moonrise Festival Announces A Hefty Phase 1 of Artists!
As you may have heard Moonrise Festival is making a much anticipated return in 2014. 2013 was supposed to be Moonrise’s inaugural year, filling the void that long standing Baltimore area festival Starscape once held. However due to a misunderstanding with city officials and an oversight concerning permits, Moonrise was forced to sit on the sidelines last summer. This year Steez Promo and Glow DC have promised to rectify the mistakes of last year and bring the ravers of the Mid-Atlantic the two day festival that they deserve. After posting pictures of the crucial permits needed to move forward, Moonrise Festival released Early Bird Tickets last week and today they announced Phase 1 of their artist lineup. This year’s lineup is stacked with a slew of artists that should be able to satisfy the needs of a wide array of concert goers.
Huge names like Kaskade, Morgan Page, Sandor Van Doorn, DJ Snake, Adventure Club, Carnage and Tommy Trash are on the roster making sure that Main Stage will be in good hands. Bass heads can rejoice in a headlining set by none other than Bassnectar himself, who will also be joined by fellow bass music enthusiasts Figure, Excision, Zeds Dead, Rusko, Infected Mushroom, Lets Be Friends and Sound Remedy. Livetronica stalwarts STS9, Lotus, Eoto and Papadosio will be on hand bringing their funkier vibes for those of us who crave live music. Hip hop heads will enjoy the inclusion of A$AP Ferg and Waka Flocka Flame. Fans of the underground should also take note that the highly acclaimed duo of Mr. Carmack and Djemba Djemba will also be making their way to Pimlico Racetrack Maryland from August 9th-10th.
Tickets for Moonrise Festival 2014 are on sale now and you can grab your tickets here. Early Bird VIP tickets have already sold out and with a relatively low price tag I expect that tickets will start going fast so don’t sleep on this one. Phase 2 of the lineup will be out soon and I’m predicting a few more live acts to go along with the already impressive lineup. With the festival’s reputation in all likelihood riding on this year’s event I think we can expect an absolutely fantastic showing this year from Steez Promo and Glow DC. Stay tuned for more news about Moonrise Festival and check out the entire Phase 1 lineup below.
