Alright East Siders, it’s almost Summer, and Summer means music. As you may have heard, there is a straight up storm brewing over here. We’re going to be heading out to many of the festivals and events this Summer, and also have a few amazing shows planned for you. We’re just as excited as you are, and can’t wait to share the experience with you.
In this post we want to familiarize you with some of the events we’ll be attending so that you know where to find us. There are tons, and we won’t be at all of them, but we will be at some of the major ones. This Summer you’ll find us at the Veld Music Festival, Electric Zoo, Electric Forest, and Big Dub Festival. These festivals all have some very different things to offer, and take place in a variety of locations. We’ll break them down for you:
Electric Forest takes place in Rothbury, Michigan in the beautiful Sherwood Forest. It also features a waterpark, a lake, horseback riding, and live painting on top of a roster that includes Pretty Lights, Kill The Noise, Empire of the Sun, Morgan Page, and Headhunterz. If you have the chance to make it to this one, GO.
Big Dub Festival takes place in early August in Artemas, Pennsylvania. You may not have heard of this one, as it is a more low key event that focuses on the camping experience over the course of 3 days. Featured acts include Figure, Nit Grit, Minnesota, and Gladkill. If you are looking for a cheaper alternative to this Summer’s expensive festivals, check out Big Dub.
The Veld Music Festival is considered one of Canada’s biggest festivals. It is now in its second year and will feature acts such as Deadmau5, Above & Beyond, Kaskade, Sub Focus, and Pleasurekraft. It takes place over two days in August at Downsview Park.
Electric Zoo takes place in New York over Labor Day weekend. It features five stages and will be repping acts like Knife Party, Danny Tenaglia, Markus Schulz and Flux Pavillion. You’ll find the East Side crew here over the course of the weekend.
In addition to all these killer festivals, we’ve got some epic shows planned for you this summer, beginning with Venture Time in July. We’ve teamed up with another Philly Crew, Amp-X, to bring you a true East Side Electro show combined with a dose of the underground…something we have finally decided to dabble in. Featuring an Adventure Time-like themed night, Venture Time challenges you to bring your creative kandi making skills to the table. The night will showcase the talent of some ESE resident DJ’s, some of Amp-X’s DJ’s and a special guest headliner that is sure to blow your minds. DON’T MISS THIS.
We also have other shows planned for August and September that are sure to be killer… including an extremely talented and relevant international artist’s Philly debut. More information will become available with time.
There it is folks, we have an epic summer ahead of us. It will be the best one yet, (I mean it has to be, considering it’s our first one). Get ready to get down on the dance floor, because what we have in store is gonna make you want to move. See you soon East Siders!
