Tampa’s staple electronic music festival Sunset Music Festival (SMF) returns Memorial Day weekend to Raymond James stadium for its sixth year. The two day festival boasts another impressive group of headliners this year featuring Major Lazer, RL Grime, Above & Beyond, and Zeds Dead. Also on the line up are A-Trak, Cedric Gervais, Illenium, San Holo, Ookay, Snails, Kungs, Louis the Child, and Wax Motif just to name a few (seriously the whole line-up is stacked).

While the artists may be heating things up on the stage, the festival will be adding more elements this year to help everyone cool down while dancing in the hot Florida sun. More water stations, shade canopies, and designated “Chill-Out” spots have been added to the festival grounds this year. Those looking to splurge can even reserve their own “SMF Oasis”, a reserved table with a private server, bottle service, and other luxuries like access to A/C restrooms and express parking.

This year will also feature the debut of the festivals stage performers, the Sunsations. They are a unique dance troop that are sure to wow the crowd with their incredible costumes and energetic moves. Two day tickets are on sale now including some fun extras for purchase like a SMF water bottle or a Pixmob LED Wristband that will will light up to the beat of the music.
