It’s no secret that Insomniac often curates some of the biggest and best lineups around. The Bay Area is often privy to many incredible producers making stops in San Francisco and Oakland for their tours. However, most of the EDM festivals are at least a 3-5 hour drive from the Bay if not more.
If the layout of Audiotistic is similar to last year’s, there will be two massive stages out in the lots of Shoreline. Although the iconic Amphitheater itself will likely not be used, there should be more than enough space to sit, relax, or dance your pants off during the two day fest.
This will be the first time Porter Robinson will be coming to the Bay Area under the name Virtual Self, his project that focuses on 90’s and 2000’s inspired by the happy hardcore soundtracks of the classic arcade game Dance Dance Revolution.
2018 also marks the return of NGHTMRE B2B Slander, who played their B2B for the first time at a festival for Audiotistic in 2017. This year they are at the top of the list for the Frequency 2.2 stage! This may mark the return of their famous Atom Stage, which is a sight to behold, to say the least.
With all genres represented from Future Bass, to Tech House, to Dubstep, this lineup has the perfect amount of variety to keep things interesting for the 2-day fest. If you are unfamiliar with any of the artists on the lineup, listen to the playlist below which highlights some of the best from our favorite producers.
