Moonrise, Wavo

The East Coast’s premiere summer music festival is officially locked in for it’s second year at Pimlico Race Course. Set to take place August 8th and 9th, Moonrise Festival boasts one of the best lineups you’ll find this festival season. Formerly known as Starscape Music Festival, the Steez Promo and Glow DC organized event promises a truly transformational event.

Something that Moonrise seems to pride themselves on this year is providing fans with a diverse lineup, furnishing Pimlico with DJs for every musical taste. Taking control of the headlining role on day one is Bassnectar. Throughout the weekend artists like Datsik, Doctor P, Zomboy, Snails, Dirtyphonics, and Funtcase & Cookie Monsta will provide the perfect soundtrack for bassheads at Moonrise.

The vibe at the main stage on day two shifts gears a bit as Above & Beyond captivates with their euphoric sound. A strong progressive, festival sound will be heard over the weekend from the likes of Andrew Rayel, Audien, Blasterjaxx, Myon & Shane54, TJR, and VINAI.

The diversity of the lineup will be noticed when the live acts take the stage this year. Big Gigantic, Break Science, The Floozies, Die Antwoord, The Glitch Mob, and Porter Robinson are all set to showcase their live performances at Moonrise. August 8th and 9th are setting themselves up to be without a doubt our favorite dates of the summer.
