Moonrise Festival Announces A Huge Comeback in 2014!
After a disappointing cancellation of last year’s inaugural Moonrise Festival, Steez Promo has joined forces with Glow DC to ensure that this year’s event will fully come to fruition on August 9th and 10th at Pimlico Racetrack in Baltimore, Maryland. This year’s Moonrise Festival will include four uniquely curated and designed stages that will combine a wide array of musical acts and art installations, including world-class bands, DJs, and live performances. Festival-goers can expect an expertly assembled roster of talented and diverse artists who will come together to put on one of the best and biggest music events in the mid-Atlantic area.
Phase 1 of the lineup announcement is slated to drop in early June and if last year’s roster which featured huge names like Pretty Lights, Destroid, Flux Pavilion, Datsik, Lotus, STS9, Paul Van Dyk, Eoto, Infected Mushroom and Porter Robinson, is any indication of what’s to come this August we should all be getting very excited. Last year’s Moonrise Festival was unfortunately derailed because promoters ultimately failed to obtain the proper permits from the city. However, this year Steez Promo representative Evan Weinstein told the Baltimore Sun that “We’re good with the city,” and “We took the right steps this year to make sure the event happens.”
Caron Brace, spokeswoman for the Mayor’s office in Baltimore, also confirmed the approval of this year’s Moonrise Festival. “We approve of what they put forward,” Brace told the sun. “We’re in support of it taking place at Pimlico Racetrack and find it to be a more suitable and appropriate location than the public park that was proposed before.”
We here at Sensible Reason are very excited to see a full-scale musical festival coming to the DMV, and we will be there when the lights go up at Pimlico Racetrack in August. Early Bird tickets will go on sale Friday, May 23rd, at noon, and stay tuned for any news and updates concerning Moonrise Festival 2014!
