Das Energi Festival returns for another exciting edition next month on August 16th & 17th. In Salt Lake City, Utah, the festival is back at the exotic Great Saltair—a space fit for thousands of party goers and multiple stages. Hosted by V2 Presents, Das Energi has become known for consistently bringing the most talented and unique electronic dance acts to Utah; giving fans an experience they can’t get anywhere else. Thanks to the level of care and attention put into the show each year, more and more music fans are attracted to the two-day extravaganza and the Utah dance music scene has grown as a result.
Like all great music festivals, Das Energi has something for everyone and this year’s star-studded lineup is no different.
With headliners such as Above & Beyond, Galantis, RL Grime, and Tchami, fans can dance to their favorite tracks across the entire electronic music spectrum. Everything from trance, dubstep to house music will be represented at Das Energi Festival. Featuring special artists like Chris Lake, NGHTMRE, Slander, and Seven Lions, these acts are must-see performances that won’t be returning to Utah for some time due to their upcoming tours.
Along with the biggest names in electronic music, Matroda and i_o particularly made waves in the house and techno scenes—establishing themselves as must-see artists to watch. Besides the Gud Vibrations B2B of NGHTMRE & Slander, Destrukt & Loki will also have an amazing B2B performance. The Deadbeats stage takeover will also feature upcoming talent curated by Zeds Dead themselves for the festival crowd. With the amount of fan-favorites and special performances on the Das Energi lineup, this event stands out as one of the most stacked shows on the calendar.
Complete with over-the-top stage production, lights, lasers, and a fantastic crowd, Das Energi Festival should be on every raver’s radar.
Come be a part of the energy by getting tickets here, and tell your friends about the incredible world of Das Energi!
