Spring Awakening reveals rosters for curated Anjunabeats, AMFAMFAMF, and Bass Kitchen stagesSAMF2018 0608 210508 0906 PP 1

Chicago’s premiere electronic music festival, Spring Awakening, has rolled out the official lineup for its branded stages: Destructo‘s All My Friends footing, an Anjunabeats onslaught, and SAMF’s longtime staple, the Bass Kitchen.

Anjuna will activate the three-day weekend, Friday, June 7, flaunting a fearsome inventory of trance, progressive, and melodic house from the likes of Spencer Brown, Andrew Bayer, Tinlicker, and more. Saturday will see the signature Bass Kitchen up in sweet sonic flames with a little help from Liquid Stranger, Dion Timmer, Spag Heddy, and more talent from the trap/dubstep dominion. Finally, Destructo will quite literally bring All his Friends for an AMFAMFAMF takeover Sunday, hallmarked by a performance by the label boss himself, Dombresky, Matroda, Dillon Nathaniel, and more in the bass-infused house hierarchy.

Spring Awakening, this year headlined by Excision, REZZ, Illenium, DJ Snake, Martin Garrix, just to name a few, is setting up shop for the first time at its new home in Hoffman Estates, the 27-acre Poplar Creek, June 7-9.

Tickets to Spring Awakening, the full lineup, and additional festival information are available here.

Rezz Teases New Music To Be Debuted At EDC Las Vegas 2019

What Diplo wants, Diplo gets, specifically the first-ever Super Mega Ultra Giant Mad Decent Block Party Festival. If the length of the name tells us anything, it’s that the seminal Mad Decent festival is sure to be one hell of a doozy, as the newly minted event’s lineup confirms. Billie Eilish, G-Eazy, Major Lazer, and Miguel head the festival, which will manifest as a fine balance of highly sought electronic acts and equally illustrious hip-hop artists alike.

A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie, Kodak Black, Pusha T, and J.I.D. round out the festival’s hip-hop inclusions, while Dillon Francis, RL Grime, Zeds Dead, REZZ, Ekali, Troyboi, Baauer, and Whethan comprise some of Diplo’s dance picks. The Super Mega Ultra Giant Mad Decent Block Party Festival also casts glances at talent from genres beyond the electronic and hip-hop spheres, to draw the stylistically malleable Quinn XCII, R&B’s Pink Sweat$ and Jesse Reyez, and Finneas out.

Needless to say, the inaugural Mad Decent Block Party branded affair is a must attend for many reasons, primary of which—at least, for dance music fans—is Major Lazer’s occupancy of a headlining slot. Diplo previously intimated that Major Lazer will likely dissolve after delivering their fourth—and probably final—album together, in a January interview with Complex. As such, The Super Mega Ultra Giant Mad Decent Block Party Festival might well be one of Major Lazer’s last large-scale performances.

The unveiling of The Super Mega Ultra Giant Mad Decent Block Party Festival’s lineup comes just after Mad Decent Block Party Festival tweeted out a video with a particularly suggestive caption on April 5: “IT’S HAPPENING.” While the far from subtle warning altered past attendees of Diplo’s multi-city Mad Decent Block Party party series to be ready for a followup announcement regarding the fate of a MDBP festival, Diplo’s presentation of a full-fledged lineup has presumably taken many by surprise, given how quickly it succeeded the preliminary Twitter hint that a MDBP festival was in the works.

The Super Mega Ultra Giant Mad Decent Block Party will descend upon Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Massachusetts for two days of fun, come July 20-21. Tickets to the festival will go on sale at 10 a.m. EST April 12.

Spring Awakening reveals multifarious undercard: Andrew Bayer, Chris Lake, TroyBoi, + moreSAMF2018 0609 215039 4768 DVS

After confirming its new location and official headliners earlier this week, Spring Awakening Music Festival has released the remainder of the lustrous 2019 lineup.

Spring Awakening’s undercard, though there’s hardly anything lowly about it, spans some of the most accomplished names in techno, house, trance, and bass music. Anjuna-adept festival-goers will notice the generous number of names from Above & Beyond‘s hallowed home for all things trance and house music to celebrate the Anjuna-branded stage that will land at SAMF this year along with a menagerie of native talent, from longtime veteran Andrew Bayer to former The M Machine member, Luttrell, who just released his first album with the label’s subsidiary imprint, Anjunadeep. From Spring Awakening’s subterranean bass caverns will spawn Liquid Stranger, Rusko, TroyBoi, G Jones, and more across the sweeping, 60-artist ticket.

Announced earlier this week, Spring Awakening 2019’s headliners GRiZ, REZZ, Martin Garrix, DJ Snake, Zedd, and Illenium will touch down at Hoffman Estate’s Poplar Creek for the festival’s first year at its expansive new location June 7-9.

Tickets to Spring Awakening are available here.

Spring Awakening to host DJ Snake, REZZ, Zedd, Martin Garrix, and more at new suburban location

The Midwest’s heftiest, strictly electronic music festival, Spring Awakening, will be taking its talents to the northwest suburbs of Chicago for its 2019 iteration, which includes an impressive-as-ever top of the ticket: DJ Snake, REZZ, Martin Garrix, Zedd, Illenium, and GRiZ.

The Hoffman Estates-held Spring Awakening will run June 7-9 at Poplar Creek, a 27-acre property (more than double that of 2018’s grounds, Addams/Medill Park). The new locale will likely equip the fest with the means to reduce noise pollution, overcrowding, cramped stage setups, and additional space-oriented festival conundrums. Since its first year as a multi-day festival, Spring Awakening has seen two different venue shifts. It was initially held in downtown Chicago at the hallowed Solider Field from 2012-2015.

Past installments of the React Presents hallmark event brought the likes of Alison Wonderland, Tiësto, Adventure Club, Skrillex, Dillon Francis, and Zeds Dead, just to name a few. This year’s chapter is expected to feature some 90 artists throughout its three-day span.

The entirety of the lineup is set for announcement Friday, March 15. Tickets to Spring Awakening are on sale now, here.

What So Not keeps energy high with release of EDC Mexico setWhat So Not Festival

EDC Mexico might be over, but the music lives on. Australian producer What So Not was one of the featured artists at the festival, along with fan favorites like Skrillex, Kaskade, and REZZ. What So Not has blessed fans by sharing his full hour-plus set from the Insomniac-produced festival on his YouTube channel, sprinkled with IDs, remixes, and even an edit of Toto’s “Africa.”

In addition to letting fans go back to his festival performance with the YouTube release, the producer has been releasing a steady stream on music, including recent downtempo track “We Can Be Friends” featuring Herizen.

Honoring the ladies of dance music this International Women’s Day [Playlist]

Honoring the ladies of dance music this International Women’s Day [Playlist]AlisonWonderland SHAKYBEATS2017 0505 192823 8517 PP Copy

The music industry is filled with women whose lives revolve around their work and in bettering the scene in general, and they are more than worthy of daily recognition for their efforts. It hasn’t always been easy; even in 2019 quite a few feel the need to work double just to receive the same respect as their male counterparts, or even to be taken seriously in general. That being said, the most admirable thing about women in the industry is that the fight continues anyhow—artists like Alison Wonderland , Charlotte de Witte, REZZ, TOKiMONSTA, Sophie, and more continually break boundaries with their sound, while female publicists, managers, and others work nonstop behind the scenes to propel others careers without taking credit for themselves.

In recent years, some headway has finally been made industry-wide to respect and recognize these women. Public pressure has made for greater female representation on festival billing and greater respect across the industry, while others are seeing tougher consequences for misogynistic behaviors. There’s still a ways to go toward equality, but the optimism is high.

This International Women’s Day, we at Dancing Astronaut feel it’s necessary to pay our respects to these groundbreakers and boundary pushers, and thus present this playlist as a way to mark the occasion. The names above, plus Mija, Nora En Pure, CRAY, Honey Dijon, ANNA, and The Black Madonna are just a few of the many caliber acts featured.

We also recognize the ladies behind this very website who keep the lights on day in and day out: Robyn, Bella, Rachel, Farrell, Nellie, Natalie P, Natalie D, Jessica, Elizabeth, and Christina.

Our proverbial hats go off to all women today.

13 gains mau5trap support on new single, ‘Oath’

13 gains mau5trap support on new single, ‘Oath’Oath Cover Art Mau5trap

After his thrashing 2017 debut with REZZ, their “DRUGS!” collaboration, 13 has been working his way up the rungs of the bass music scene. After another song with REZZ and multiple on Mad Decent, 13 is back with his second release of 2019 “Oath.”

Marking his first mau5trap release, “Oath” sees 13 taking his music to the extremes of the mid-tempo bass threshold. Accompanied by an official visualizer, the track’s heavy sound matches the video’s dark, glossy, 3D depiction of the music. Haunting vocal cuts lead to a harrowing drop, with fully distorted synths crunching their way into a heavy trap breakdown. With mounting support from some of the industry’s key figureheads, 13 has set himself up for seemingly limitless electronic rank ascension in 2019.
