This summer, get ready for two unforgettable days jam-packed with wubs, dubs and shuffling feet. Audiotistic is back, held at the Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain View, CA on July 13 and 14. Artists like Alison Wonderland, T.I., Kayzo, Tiësto, SayMyName and others will be coming together to form a solid, diverse lineup. 2019 marks the third year of Audiotistic’s participation in the festival scene and has grown with each passing year.
Returning Audiotistic Veterans
Returning from last years lineup is Kayzo, who just recently played one of his most amazing sets yet at this year’s Coachella. Known for his play on “happy hardcore” music, his new single “Up In Flames” is a perfect example of that. If only I could get my feet to work properly, I’d never be able to stop shuffling along! When it comes to Kayzo, the beats don’t mess around.
Also making a repeat appearance in 2019 is Chris Lake and we can’t wait for him to bring in the house! With successful two weekends at Coachella as well, Chris Lake’s Yuma Tent performance was simply incredible; which sets the bar pretty high for this season’s shows. His upbeat remixes and collaborations never fail to have us grooving. Us house music lovers can’t wait to see what he has in store!
Newcomers to the Audiotistic Scene
Gracing the Audiotistic stage this July will be Alison Wonderland. Breaking new extraordinary ground for female EDM artists everywhere, Wonderland’s emotional vibes awaken a feeling deep inside that all of us can relate to and we’re here for it. With the recent release of her popular single “Peace,” Alison Wonderland displays vulnerability and strength in her journey of healing and fans can’t wait to see where this journey takes her.
Also joining the 2019 lineup and a solid addition as well, Zeds Dead adds Audiotistic to their busy festival season. With that being said, we’re extremely grateful to have their Deadbeats record label host the Frequency 2.2 stage on Saturday. With their current release of “Rescue” with Dion Timmer, it’s clear Zeds Dead will be unpacking the bass into our ears and we’ll gladly accept it.
Up-and-coming mixologist Franklyn Watts, formerly known as Noise Frenzy, is also joining these artists this June. In 2019 alone, Watts has released tracks such as “Gucci Panties,” “In My Living Room,” and “Hips” with labels such as Dirtybird, Soup NYC and Big Fat Records. Over the past five years, he has been honing and perfecting his craft and all the hard work is really paying off. Funky with a touch of sensuality, Franklyn Watts is ready to show us what he’s got!
In addition, Alexander Dennis (more commonly known as EPROM) will be displaying his mastery of freestyle bass music for us this June. EPROM’s style is a great example of the phrase “Art should comfort the disturbed and disturb the comfortable.” 2019 has proved to be a productive year with not only his Shades tour but also two collaborative releases with Flume, who also has a new album out this year. Fans of EPROM are excited to see success raining down, and will follow the journey of these trippy beats wherever they go!
Breaking (but more like crashing) through to make a mark on the EDM community, LICK is taking us by storm. Last year he gained massive amounts of attention with remixes of Seven Lions’ “Lose Yourself” and Skrillex’s Grammy-winning track “Devil’s Den.” Now signed into Deadbeats, doors are opening for LICK left and right. Since bay area bass fans will be able to catch his set at Audiotistic, LICK will surely win over the masses with his hauntingly gritty rhythms.
With a festival season packed with exciting events and fantastic lineups, Audiotistic 2019 surely be one for the books!
The two-day event will be held July 13 & 14 and hosted in the Bay Area. Check out the rest of this killer lineup and ticket prices in the link below. Tickets are on sale now, so be sure to purchase your passes here!
