Sunset Music Festival is just days away and if you haven’t grabbed your Tickets, make sure you do before it’s too late, and check out the daily artist lineup. As we gear up for some fun in the sun next weekend, we’d like to draw your eyes and ears to some artists that we are excited to see. While Sunset has some of your usual festival headliners playing like Tiesto, Skrillex, Armin van Buuren, Cedric Gervais, Flosstradamus, Showtek, The Chainsmokers, and more, we’d like to point out some of the guys that are making fresh waves in the dance music world.
British producer Duke Dumont could be credited as one of the artists that helped bring back the resurgence of popular House and Deep House in the United States. With songs like Need U and I Got U, you can expect Duke Dumont to bring some fun, feel-good, groovy house music to Tampa next weekend.
Coming out of LA, SNBRN is a relative newcomer to the festival scene, which is all the more reason to hear him play some new sounds at SMF this year. Producing feel-good music that could be described as House, Deep House, and Tropical House, his name seems to suite him appropriately as it draws connotations of good times in the sun.
Porter Robinson (live)
No stranger to the dance world, Porter Robinson has been making his rounds since 2011 when he seemed to explode on the scene overnight. You may remember some of his older bangers like Vandalism, but the Porter Robinson as of late is a new artist. If you’ve seen one of his DJ sets, but not his live show, you’re in for quite a departure from his original style. Last year he debuted his live show during his Worlds Tour and it was quite a spectacle. With a heavy emphasis on live instruments, live sampling, and complementary lights that set a magical atmosphere, his live show is something different that needs to be seen!
Hailing from Berlin, Germany, Claptone is another European that has helped popularize House music in the United States in recent years. Make sure to check out his set for some fun music that you can undoubtedly find yourself getting completely lost in.
This Amsterdam native had an explosive rise to fame. In the course of just a year, Sam Feldt has become a dominate force in the dance music scene, rising to fame with his signature Tropical House sound with bubbly beats. Fresh off of a successful week at Miami Music Week in March, where he played at a number of pool parties, sharing the stage with the likes of Don Diablo, Oliver Heldens, Robin Schulz, Kygo, Thomas Jack, and many more, Sam Feldt is certainly someone you will want to pay attention to at SMF. Check out one of his latest songs, Midnight Hearts.
Rounding out the list is one of the older and more experienced artists of this list, hailing from Britain is Sub Focus. Like some of the other artists on this list, Sub Focus has made big splashes in the American dance world, primarily due to his remix of Rusko’s Hold On, back in 2010. Though his music style has evolved quite a bit since his remix of Hold On, he still knows how to bring the energy. Make sure to catch Sub Focus’ set for what is sure to be nothing short of high energy!
