Sunset Music Festival Returns to Tampa in 2019

Sunset Music Festival 2019 Phase 1 Lineup

Sunset Music Festival will return to Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, FL for its eighth edition this Memorial Day Weekend, May 25 & 276, 2019. Festival producers Disco Donnie are powering through after last year’s event ran into some issues caused by Subtropical Storm Alberto. The storm never directly hit Tampa, but its peripheral effects were enough to cause concern for the Tampa Sports Authority, the Tampa Police Department, and Tampa Fire Rescue. Ultimately, those three departments made the decision to cancel Day 2 of SMF 2018 due to the Tropical Storm Warning that was in effect until 5PM that day; the decision to cancel was not up to Disco Donnie or the SMF promoters or producers. It caused a lot of exasperation with fans, especially because the weather on Day 2 was all blue skies by the time the festival would have started.

This year’s event looks like SMF is returning to its roots after a very heavy focus on Bass and Dubstep in 2018. 2019’s event features some nice diversity in dance music, with a specific focus on House and Bass music and curated stages by Anjunabeats and Deadbeats. The initial lineup includes 12th Planet, Alison Wonderland, Audien, Bonnie x Clyde, Chris Lake, Destructo, Dog Blood (Skrillex & Boys Noize), Dombresky, Fisher, Flux Pavilion, Gabriel & Dresden, Gammer, Ganja White Night, Getter, Ilan Bluestone, Kaskade (Sunset Set), Lick, Liquid Stranger, Mat Zo, Omnom, Peekaboo, Rusko, Said The Sky, Steve Darko, Subtronics, Walker & Royce, Weiss, and Will Clarke. An additional phase of at least 20 more artists will be released in the coming months. In past years, SMF has released it’s Phase 2 lineup around the end of March.

2-day GA ($160.11), GA Plus ($180.71), and VIP ($252.81) tickets are currently on sale with a variety of purchasing options, including an option for a payment plan. GA Plus includes a GA pass with express entry, while VIP includes access to the VIP express entrance, VIP viewing platforms, air-conditioned VIP bathrooms, front row VIP pit access, and access to VIP bars.

Goldrush 2018 Recap

Goldrush 2018 Girls

Goldrush returned for its second year to the Rawhide Western Town and Event Center this past September 29-30, 2018. Did this year’s line up live up to last year’s standards for you? This year, some rainy weather augmented the stage production as lights reflected off the rain. Relentless Beats also made improvements to the layout of the festival, making crowds flow smoother from one stage to the next.

Goldrush 2018 Town

The Hideout stage and a rock climbing wall sit near the entrance to Goldrush, which leads into the main town area. This area like last year was breathtaking and incredible to see everyone all dressed up in their western attire. The town is breathtaking as it’s decked out with old western attire, including the crowd. The town featured various vendor booths and amenities, as well as a hangout zone with a giant chessboard, games, and plenty of seating for taking a break.

Next, the Pioneer Peak stage featured artists like Blossom, SoDown, Tookie, Virtual Riot, SayMyName, Black Tiger Sex Machine, TroyBoi, Rich The Kid, and Kevin Gates. The Pioneer Peak stage was quite a spectacle on Saturday, chock-full of eye-catching lasers. Unfortunately, the stage production was dialed back a bit due to the rainy weather. However, this did not hinder the artists from throwing down some great performances. Beyond the Pioneer Peak stage featured a spot for live artists to display their talents.

Beyond Pioneer Peak featured the Wagon Wheel and Golden Gorge stages. Night one featured Codeko, Said The Sky, Chris Lake, Slushii, Vince Stables, Deorro, and Deadmau5 at Golden Gorge, while the second night featured Loud Luxury, Ekali, Slander, Louis The Child, Illenium, with Steve Aoki closing out the festivities with his typical showmanship and shenanigans.

Goldrush 2017 Stage Flames

A view from Goldrush 2017

We’ve put together information below on some of the crowd favorites that will be at Goldrush 2018.

Slushii – Genre: Trap – Julian Scanlan, aka Slushii, is a LA based EDM producer, vocalist, and DJ. After finding his sound in his remix of Zedd and Selena Gomez’s “I Want You To Know,” which was dedicated to his more light-hearted and future bass sound, this was his first official project under the stage name “Slushii.” That was back in 2013, since then Slushii signed to Red Light Management in February 2016 and soon after released his first single “Emptiness.” In 2017 he continued to create mesmerizing upbeat tracks, including collaborations with future bass DJ, Marshmello. Slushii came out with his debut studio album titled Out Of Light in August 2017. The album has 13 songs, including previously recorded songs “Dear Me,” “My Senses,” “Step By Step,” and “I Still Recall.” Each song consists of his own “cartoonish and pitched-up” vocals.

Slander – Genre: Trap – This duo met at their fraternity in UC Irvine and later graduated from Icon Collective together. They also became close friends with Tyler (NGHTMRE) at Icon Collective. Theirstage name, Slander, comes from their real names: “S(cott) Land” and “Ander(sen)”. In 2014 their remix of Showtek’s song “We Like To Party” with NGHTMRE had well over 12 million plays on YouTube and was what most credit as Slander’s rise to popularity. Since then there’s been an overwhelming number of collaborations with NGHTMRE, WAVZ, SNAILS, Yookie, Jinzo and many others. This duo brings the fire to the stage and you can clearly see them vibing off of each other, it’s electric! Head bangers get ready!

Troyboi ‘T-R-O-Y-B-O-I’ – Genre: Trap – One of South East London’s most closely guarded secrets, this multi-talented musician specialises in extraordinarily unique, versatile, and highly musical tracks that fuse various textures from multiple genres and brands it as ‘My Style.’ TroyBoi is without a doubt one of the top up-and-coming producers in the game right now and it’s quite clear from his composition that his influences are vast indeed. He has already produced tracks with some very high profile artists and his collaboration with Flosstradamus ‘Soundclash’ is arguably one of the biggest anthems in the scene today. His style is undeniably his own, infectious to the ears and beyond stimulating to the mind. He is also one half of the Producer/DJ duo SoundSnobz with one of his best friends, icekream. Together they craft the most creative and daring audio paintings you’ll ever listen to. Buckle up and get ready to be taken into the world of TroyBoi because once you are in, you will NEVER want to get out.

SAYMYNAME – Genre: Hard Trap – Better known as Dayvid Lundie-Sherman: SAYMYNAME. As a result of years of hard work, working 35 hour weeks at Guitar Center, and his dedication to the studio in his spare time, he was signed by AM ONLY. After trying to figure out his sound with trap and hardstyle, his re-birth came about as he discovered #HARDTRAP. SAYMYNAME has been on the forefront as a pioneer of this sound movement. Numerous blogs and fans have labeled him as The Godfather of HARDTRAP. Keep an eye out for this young exciting act with his mesmerizing stage presence, ridiculous energy that has created a whole new movement, and enthusiasm that successfully converts brand new fans at every show.

Can’t wait to see who will be ending the festivities this year! What do you think? Illenium or Steve Aoki? Let us know on Instagram @dancebreakmusic!
