We are almost halfway through the year, and festival season is in full swing. Luckily for us, it seems the world is almost entirely back to normal. Music lovers and performers alike are truly rejoicing. And everyone was missing the outdoor music festival experience, and we’re all just so happy it’s back. 

The Untz Festival (May 13-15)

The Untz is back at Mariposa Fairgrounds this May, from the 13th to the 15th. Untz is celebrating its biggest year, and they’re bringing out its most extensive lineup to Sycamore Ranch in Browns Valley. Multiple groups are taking over the festival, such as the 1985 Music Takeover with artists like Alix PerezTsuruda, and Hyroglifics and the Wormhole Music Group artists like Secret RecipeLabrat, and Shadow Spirit. In addition to banging bass beats, there’ll be community workshops, live painting, and everyone’s favorite, yoga!

EDC Vegas (May 20-22)

EDC Vegas is happening May 20-22 at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway. There are EDCs worldwide, but nothing compares to the flagship EDC and its incredible carnival backdrop in the city of Sin. 

The lineup for EDC is stacked, with Friday night featuring AcrazeCharlotte de Witte, and Seven Lions. Saturday night is just as packed with CIDGrimes (performing a DJ set, no less), and the piano house queen herself, LP Giobbi. And throwing down on the last day are Coco & Breezy, a Kaskade Redux set(!), and Wax Motif, each providing the perfect soundtrack to close out the festival. Of course, this is just a tiny taste of the talent you can expect to find at EDC, but you’ll have to attend to get that whole lineup. General Admission tickets are sold out, but there are VIP tickets left, so if you want to attend EDC in style, this is your chance!

VIP Tickets for EDC Vegas are available now.

Lightning in a Bottle returns May 26-30 to Buena Vista Lake for five beautiful days. Though the main music days are Friday through Sunday, opening parties begin Wednesday and Thursday with a Desert Hearts Lake Party and a four-hour sesh from Joe Kay Experience at The Stacks. 

And as a special treat, the LIB crew’s firing up the Woogie a day early. What’s the Woogie, you ask? It’s the incredible house stage at LIB. Get there early because it’s an event full of surprises and great music, so you don’t want to miss any of it. Other openers include The Fungineers and Smoakland, while Friday features Glass Animals and G Jones going b2b with EPROM. Then Saturday brings Clozee and Big Freedia, while Sunday features Grammy winner Black Coffee and Ivy Lab.

Tickets for Lightning in a Bottle are available now.

Movement Detroit has a long history dating back to when it was a free techno celebration. It returns to Techno City, aka Detroit, May 28-30th. With six stages and over 110 acts performing over three days, this event surely has something for everyone. And while techno is its bread and butter, the lineup is quite diverse with acts like 2ChainzClaude von StrokeFlying Lotus, Jeff Mills, Justin MartinLouie VegaThe Martinez Brothers, and Richie Hawtin, how could you go wrong? Plus, there are more pre-parties and after-parties than one can count, so you can make this festival as long (or as short) as you want. 

Tickets for Movement Detroit 2022 are available now.
