Bringing the festival to life are St. Louis locals DownRight Entertainment and Unknown Frequency. The event will feature two stages. The main stage called, The Amp Stage, will be located within the amphitheater that features fixed and lawn seating. The second stage called The Jam Stage, will be just outside the amphitheater.

This year, the event organizers were looking to shift the direction of the festival in terms of the music. Rather than limiting its horizons, they wanted to create an event that integrated artists from various genres to create a well-rounded lineup that could cater to anyone’s musical taste. And, they didn’t skimp out on the talent. The lineup boasts headlining acts from Eoto and Minnesota, whose sets are sure to be out of this world. However, there are a few lesser-known acts that I couldn’t help but highlight, and absolutely encourage you to check out.
Crossing the lines between trap, wobbly bass, and future bass, Jade Cicada has made a name for himself through his consistently unpredictable sound. Although heavily influenced by glitch and trip-hop, he has surely proved that he has no boundaries when it comes to his production talent.
Lately, Subdocta has been attracting a lot of attention to himself through his self-proclaimed “West Coast Wobble” sound. If you love all things heavy, insanely wobbly, with a hint of classic dubstep, Subdocta is someone to keep your eye on. His recently announced tour as support for Dirt Monkey is sure to put him on the map in a big way. In light of this huge tour, I would be regretful to miss this sure-to-be epic set.
Tickets are still available for the festival, but they are going fast! Purchase them, here!
