Big room savant KSHMR put together an exclusive Orbit playlist in preparation for his upcoming Imagine Festival set on Saturday, September 21 in Atlanta. The selection of tracks matches his performance style, filled with booming festival anthems and crafted melodies that one would expect to hear from the artist.
From vocalistic ballads to big room numbers, the frequent mainstage occupee welcomes tracks from Dharma label friends like Asketa & Natan Chain’s “Magic, morphing into cuts from his four-cut ‘Paradesi’ EP and international bounce anthems like Ummet Ozcan‘s “IZMIR”. Similar to his high-energy sets, the ORBIT playlist is closed out with Mike Williams “Day or Night”, complementing the carousel of singles in this festival pregame playlist.
This is the sixth rendition of the Imagine as the festival looks to celebrate its theme “What Lies Deep at the Bottom of the Ocean.” Take a dive into KSHMR’s aura below and catch his set Saturday night on the main Oceania stage at 9:30pm.
Above the influx of summer festival lineups being released, Imagine Festival has placed itself in the top echelon of these events with their phase one announcement. Taking place at the Atlanta Motor Speedway over the September 20-22 weekend, the festival returns for its sixth year to bring festival goers together for one last weekend before the unofficial commencement of the festival season. The phase one lineup introduces a multi-threat combination of headliners including Diplo, Rezz, Above & Beyond, Alison Wonderland, and Zeds Dead, accompanied by a handful of surrounding support over the three days.
Festival attendees will find themselves immersed within the festival’s underwater fairytale theme, displayed in all areas from the Oceania and Amazonia stages, to the extravagant decorations that adorn the venue’s parameters. Complete with their very own campgrounds, Imagine Festival combines top-notch musical talent and production to temporarily submerge attendees into their own aquatic wonderland.
Perhaps the most stunning highlight of the weekend’s reel belongs to Illenium, who, fresh off a brand new album, has no intentions of slowing down. As fans flocked to his sundown set last night, giddy to hear tracks off the new album, Illenium awed even further when he announced an unreleased track with Kill The Noise. The 3-minute long video, with it’s robotic vocals and heavy synth use, harpoons back to both producer’s early dubstep days, demonstrating clear Illenium influences on the track’s lead-ups, with what can only be deciphered as Kill The Noise drops.
