For more information, read up on the official press release:

Sunset Music Festival has become the staple in its hometown of Tampa, Florida at Raymond James Stadium. What started as a single day event grew to a two-day fest by its third year and now Disco Donnie Presents and Sunset Events, purveyors of the festival in the Sunshine-State, are announcing an unprecedented lineup-up for their 7th consecutive year.

Sunset Music Festival returns under the Floridan sun for an electric Memorial Day Weekend on May 26 & May 27. Pushing boundaries, this years’ line-up represents the many facets of the festival and its inclusive and innovative spirit, adding R&B and Hip-Hop talent to the best of the best in dance music.

The Chainsmokers, Marshmello, and Excision are announced to headline the two day fest and will be joined by “Goresteps” own Borgore, Destructo, Anna Lunoe, Bonnie x Clyde, Canadian trap queen DJ Cray, Australia’s GG Magree, K?D, Baltimore’s GypZ and Elephante + many more.

Disco Donnie comments, “This year’s SMF lineup includes a lot of firsts to make the lineup our biggest yet — three top tier headliners, new genres like hip hop, a focus on female artists, back to back sets, stage takeovers by All My Friends and Brownies & Lemonade, plus some new surprises in store in coming weeks.”

John Santoro of Sunset Events adds, “I feel that we really dialed in the operations last year and can’t wait to show all the added toys we put into the festival this year for our family to enjoy. I hope everybody’s ready for an unbelievable festival. From the start in 2006 to now is simply amazing how our fans love for this festival made it grow to what we are all going to experience this memorial weekend. Can’t wait for memorial weekend and for all the memories to be made.”

Leading up to the festival, SMF released a series of comedic teaser trailers, featuring Levi & Flynn, a tale of two aspiring musicians, living in a RV in Tampa, who were mistakenly convinced they were booked to headline this year’s event, since the duo shared the same name as one of the 2018 artists, Hippie Sabotage. The videos were the work of Agata Alexander, Jason Kaye, Rob Michaelson, creators of the Hard Music Festival trailers.

This year will see the debut of two exclusive stage takeovers, where electro meets hip hop featuring Destructo & Yo Gotti at the All My Friends stage, plus A-Trak and YehMe2 will headline the Brownies & Lemonade stage. The two recently declared “We’re open for festival season” and they’ll be bringing their impressive energy to the party.

BUKU Expands its Footprint in 2018

BUKU 2017 Back Alley Stage

Just one weekend stands between us and BUKU Music + Art Project, which returns to Mardi Gras World this March 9-10, 2018 in New Orleans, LA. The festival continues on years of success as music and art exhibition on the banks of the Mississippi River, with a diverse hip-hop, dance, and funk lineup that features the likes of Bassnectar, Migos, MGMT, SZA, Porter Robinson’s side-project Virtual Self, and many more.

BUKU 2018 will feature some significant changes as the festival grows into its space. The Power Plant Stage, hosting the festival headliners, has been moved across the railroad tracks to accommodate a larger space. A new VIP Rooftop has been added, adjacent to the Power Plant Stage. A new Wharf Stage has been added along the Mississippi River, opposite of the VIP Back Alley Stage. The Wharf Stage will host all the artists that traditionally played on the Back Alley Stage in previous years. This year, the Back Alley Stage will be reserved for VIP only, as the VIP barge is no longer part of the festival. The Float Den will remain in the warehouse, generally featuring heavier bass artists, while the Ballroom will remain in its usual spot, hosting a mixture of funk and live music. On top of the main stages, there will be a Front Yard area, which will feature a local showcase of music and visual art, with an opportunity to bid on graffiti art. For more info, check out BUKU’s page detailing the stages.

A unique aspect of BUKU is the art curation and BUKULTURE. The festival features numerous art installations, art carts, and other eye candy around the festival. Take a step away from the stages and get immersed in BUKU’s world of art.

If you don’t get your fill at the festival itself, BUKU will be hosting a number of late night parties, starting Thursday and ending Sunday, featuring artists like Papa Roach, Boogie T & Russ Liquid, Borgore B2B 12th Planet, Ski Mask the Slump God, Truth, and many more.

Make sure to check out BUKU’s info page to stay updated with travel information, FAQs, and security information. Additionally, the full lineup and schedule are also available. A range of ticket options are still available, but selling quickly, so make sure to grab yours before it’s too late!

Dubstep and Dinos: A Look at Lost Lands

Lost Lands 2017 Lineup

Guest Post by: Jordan Miller, Madison Burr, and Tory Njardvik

Calling all Ragin’ Raptors, Basseontologists and Party-voures to join the prehistoric, head banging, good times at Legend Valley, Ohio this September 29th to October 1st. Hold onto your butts, and prepare to be transported back to the Cretaceous Age where dinosaurs will once again dance among us at this bass boomin’, boogie bustin’ Lost Lands Festival. It’s dinosaurs and bass; what more could you want?

Excision, the bringer of the bass and visual virtuoso, has brought together some of the filthiest names in the bass scene to create a prehistoric themed festival so heavy that it is guaranteed to leave even the most experienced head bangers sore. Excision, in true head banger fashion, will be headlining all three nights to ensure festival goers get a healthy dose of the legendary Paradox Stage while simultaneously getting the maximum usage out of their official Lost Lands earplugs, which are included with every ticket. The ear plugs are free of charge, but the neck braces are not standard issue. Newbies out there should consider picking up a neck brace from a medical supply store or snagging one from a free listing on craigslist, because you are sure to need one after this heavy, head banging hangout! Protip: get some rhinestones to bedazzle your neck brace or bring sharpies so all of your new friends can sign your brace, and remember, wear it with pride!

Aside from Excision and his neck breaking beats, festival goers will be able to bask in 500,000 watts of downright dirty bass while enjoying the musical stylings of Cookie Monsta, Kill the Noise, Slander, Snails and many more bass extraordinaires. The lineup is totally rexcellent it will surely delight dirty beat seekers and get those dino feet dancin’!

Dubstep has gone through a major revival this year and we are beginning to see more festivals catering to the heavier music scene. Moonrise and Insomniac’s Middlelands both had some heavier headliners, various non-musical activities, art and productions, but these festivals were not centered purely around dubstep, like Lost Lands. We are excited to be attending the inaugural year of Lost Lands and to check out a festival that is curated by bass heads for bass heads.

If you can’t get your Bassasaurus butt to Lost Lands, we will have post festival content for you to check out. And for those of you traveling back in time to dance with the dinos, check back after the festival to find yourself and your friends in our prehistoric people album.

Camping passes are currently sold out, but a variety of other passes, including general admission, are still available for purchase from the ticketing website. Before you dino-stomp your way to Legend Valley, make sure to check up on all of the festival information.
