Moonrise Festival 2018 is shaping out to be one of Baltimore’s most exciting events of the year. The two-day festival — held at the Pimlico Race Course – is preparing for its 5th installment, which will feature a wide and diverse range of artists, catering toward fans of almost any dance music sub-genre. Performers include Kaskade, Zeds Dead, 3LAU, JOYRYDE, Ookay, GRiZ, Illenium, A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie, Ekali, MK, and more.
In honor of the upcoming festivities, we’ve compiled a 10-track playlist that includes tunes from some of the weekend’s most anticipated acts — perfect for any pre-game or long road-trips to Baltimore.
1. Silk City (Diplo & Mark Ronson) – “Only Can Get Better”
The latest single from Diplo & Mark Ronson’s newest side project Silk City. This is definitely a collaboration attendees will hear during Diplo’s headline set at the Stellar Stage Saturday night. Ronson has since teased their second upcoming release, so maybe he’ll give fans a little taste at the festival?
One of DJ Snake’s hottest 2018 collaborations saw linking up with Mercer for a rapid, future house heater. Check out Snake headlining the Stellar Stage Saturday night alongside Kaskade, Diplo, Zeds Dead, and more.
3. Marshmello – “Rooftops”
Marshmello recently released his Joytime II album, which has been very well-received by the Mello Gang. “Rooftops” a groovy one from the album where the DJ/producer throws on his own 90’s punk rock-sounding vocals. He’ll take the Stellar Stage Sunday night and will likely close out the weekend.
4. SNRBN – “If I Can’t Have You” feat. Harloe
The LA-based DJ/producer, who will also be taking over the Stellar Stage on Sunday afternoon, where he will more than likely take his audience out of the racetrack an instead place them on a mental beach. His latest single “I Can’t Have You” accomplishes this feat in mere minutes.
5. Two Friends – “While We’re Dreaming” feat. Kevin Writer
We enjoy this 2017 throwback from the duo, who will be treating their guests to a heavy dose of their cheery brand of dance music.
6. Galantis – “Mama Look At Me Now”
“Mama Look At Me Now” is one of two tracks from Galantis’ latest EP release, and it gives us a taste of what’s in store for the mischevious Swedes’ infectiously raucous Sunday set.
7. Cashmere Cat, Major Lazer, Tory Lanez – “Miss You” (Akira Akira & Hikeii Remix)
This is one of the most poppin’ remixes of his hit collaboration “Miss You” with Major Lazer and Tory Lanez. Festival goers can expect to hear either the original or an assortment of remixes, yet knowing Cashmere Cat, he often has a strictly Jersey club section of the set, to which this fits perfectly. Check out his set at the Lunar Stage on Sunday.
8. Rezz & 1788-L – H E X
Rezz is blowing up the scene with dark synths and heavy beats that are nothing short of an innovative sound. Check out her latest release, which she’ll most likely use to destroy the Solar Tent atmosphere on Saturday.
9. Chris Lake, Chris Lorenzo, Anti-Up – “Pizza”
Anyone want pizza? No? How about after a few hours of constant movement and house beats at the Celestial Stage? Chris Lake will be headlining the house-geared stage Saturday night and will probably trap listeners into his set right as they’re deciding to leave for some pizza.
10. Eric Prydz – “Liberate” (Lane 8 Remix)
This remix for Eric Prydz’ “Liberate” is one of Lane 8’s hidden gems released back in 2014. He’s pushed out a lot of new music since then, but it doesn’t mean we have to stop showing this perfect blend of deep and melodic house some love. Check him out headlining the Celestial Stage Sunday night.
France defeated Croatia in the World Cup finals on Sunday by a score of 4-2, marking their 2nd ever world cup victory. Countless French DJs took to social media to share their support and excitement. Below are reactions from some of them.

Wasn’t born during the last world cup. Translates to “dedicated to all the adults who told us kids we didn’t “know the World Cup.” WHAT NOW?!?!

Again demonstrating its ubiquitous presence as a worldwide festival phenomenon, Ultra has locked in a stellar, multifaceted-as-ever billing for its fifth anniversary of the global festival’s Japan installment, to take place over an extended weekend on September 15-17.
Topping phase one of the 2018 bill are high-rollers Nicky Romero, DJ Snake, Armin Van Buuren, and Zedd, as well as all three parties from Swedish House Mafia, though they appear as their separate, respective acts: Axwell Λ Ingrosso and Steve Angello. Having the Mafiosos in the same place at the same time begs the question of whether fans could witness a surprise performance from the storied threesome who reunited earlier this year at Ultra’s flagship location in Miami. The initial wave of talent also includes the likes of Oliver Heldens, Cash Cash, and Eats Everything among others.
The Tokyo-based festival will return to Odaiba Ultra Park. Tickets can be purchased here.
DJ Snake made a huge statement when he dropped his smash hit track, ‘Magenta Riddim’ several weeks ago. DJ Snake has spent much of 2018 exploring new sounds, all of which are leading up to the release of his sophomore album. After diving into the worlds of bass, hip-hop, and festival trap, Snake has dropped

For those that we’re able to make the pilgrimage to Croatia this year for the 2018 installment of Ultra Europe, fear not, a major festival highlight is now available for your viewing pleasure. The festival took place from July 6 to July 8, and, aside from trance king Armin Van Buuren, featured headliners such as Axwell / Ingrosso, DJ Snake, Galantis, The Chainsmokers, and more. Now, Armin fans can enjoy his full 93-minute live set from Ultra Europe on YouTube.
Attendees can relive the riveting experience while others are guaranteed a deserved dose of delayed FOMO, as the video captures everything from the suspenseful intro to Armin’s stunning visual effects. And, let’s face it, the veteran DJ icon’s signature full extension of his arms atop the stage is one of the most entertaining things to watch, it never gets old. Armin Van Buuren recently celebrated the 15th anniversary of his label Armada Music and he’s maintained a packed summer itinerary, heading to Belgium for Tomorrowland on July 21 and the UK for Creamfields on August 24.
I am sitting on a folding chair in the middle of a football field. A few dozen yards in front of me stand two video screens several stories high, each angled slightly toward its respective side of the stadium, converging at the center of the stage like two sides of a triangle. A gargantuan rig … More »
DJ Snake continues to sample sounds from across the world after teaming up with Nigerian singer and songwriter Niniola for new release, “Maradona Riddim.” A subtle intro featuring Niniola’s vocals falls into a Caribbean-inspired backdrop with tropical undertones and a catchy electronic synth progression. The track has radio appeal, and makes for excellent beach playlist fodder; moreover, it’s erratic, wild nature is most certainly reminiscent of the former soccer legend that its title pays homage to.
The French superstar announced earlier in the year that his sophomore studio album is underway, and given the diversity of tracks we have seen from the French DJ and producer thus far in 2018, fans can only hope that release date is sooner rather than later.
During today’s World Cup semi-final match between European football titans France and Belgium, Mercer put out an interesting tweet. This World Cup has been one of the most unpredictable in history. The France and Belgium match was a special one. From the first touch to the first shot to the first goal, this game possessed

DJ Snake posted a video of Cardi B on his Facebook July 10 to announce a collaboration between the two. The rapper mentions on the video she’s doing a song with Puerto Rican/Dominican reggaeton singer, Ozuna, and a “special artist” for DJ Snake’s upcoming album.
The French producer announced a couple months ago that his sophomore album was underway. From then, it’s been shrouded in mystery, aside from this recent little clue. “Okurrr!”
Recent releases of his include “Public Enemy” with Yellow Claw and “Let’s Get Ill” with Mercer. The forthcoming album will follow 2016’s Encore LP, which was packed with hits like “Middle” and “Let Me Love You.”
