Sunset Music Festival Daily Lineup
After announcing surprise headliner Skrillex a few weeks back, we didn’t think Sunset Music Festival organizers could shock us with any more exhilarating news. But just last week, the Florida-based festival revealed its phase two lineup featuring Zeds Dead, Oliver Heldens, Tchami, Alesso, Dom Dolla, Walker & Royce, John Summit, and more. With this being the first year Sunset Music Festival will run for three days during Memorial Day weekend, the festival just released its lineup by day for those only hoping to attend just one or two days.
Each day features a flawless blend of diverse electronic music subgenres so that attendees can enjoy a wide array of musical soundscapes across all stages. Kick the weekend off on Friday with ATLiens, Gordo, Gorgon City, Gryffin (Live), Illenium, and SIDEPIECE. Keep the party going on Saturday with Boogie T, Imanbek, Liquid Stranger, LP Giobbi, and Ship Wrek. Sunday acts will be closing out the weekend on a high note, with names like Chris Lorenzo, CID, Duke Dumont, Jason Ross, and Moore Kismet.

EDC Las Vegas 2022 Theme
If last week’s EDC Las Vegas 2022 extensive lineup announcement didn’t already persuade you to buy tickets and start planning your trip, we bet the reveal of this year’s theme will. Whether attending the one-of-a-kind festival or tuning in from your couch for the livestream, EDC Las Vegas never ceases to captivate fans with its state-of-the-art productions and otherworldly stage designs.
The mastermind behind the entire EDC and Insomniac Events concept, Pasquale Rotella, just announced the official theme for this upcoming EDC Las Vegas production, and we’re here for it. The caption in his recent Instagram post states, “Last year, we focused on finding balance within ourselves during KineticZEN. This year we will showcase the next phase of our journey with KineticBLOOM.”
After a rough two years, it's time for music lovers to fully flourish and blossom into the best and most beautiful versions of themselves that they can be. From May 20-22, get ready to bloom together under the Electric Sky at this prodigious music festival.

GRiZ’s Triple Rainbow Fest
Earlier this week, funk and bass producer GRiZ tweeted about always dreaming of putting on his own festival someday, only to discover that his dream was already manifested into reality just a few days later. Scheduled to take place from Sept 16-17, GRiZ is proud to present his first-ever Triple Rainbow Fest at the Alpine Valley Music Theatre in East Troy, Wisconsin.
Previously acknowledged as a legendary rock and jam-band heavy venue, GRiZ will be producing the first electronic-only show at Alpine Valley. The venue has hosted prominent acts like the Grateful Dead, Pearl Jam, Dave Matthews Band, Rush, Phish, and two editions of Lollapalooza when the festival traveled to pop-up locations in the 90s.
Aside from two headlining performances by GRiZ himself, the debut festival will host like-minded musicians like LSDream, CloZee, Tripp St., Minnesota, EAZYBAKED, Chee, Noah B, and Tape B. Fans can expect GRiZ to perform a unique set each night filled with unreleased material, standout classics, and unforgettable live takes on tracks off his most recent Rainbow Brain album.
