With the release of the phase 1 roster, things were already looking prime for this year’s outing in Baltimore. This being Moonrise’s third return after the success they saw the last few years. The people behind this festival definitely have some masterminds handling the bookings and making the decisions on who to lock in. This is evident with the events that Steez Promo throws regularly in the DMV area along with Pittsburgh and Philadelphia. From series like Bass Nation and Mega, the production company always seems to impress when it comes down to artist selection.
This event making it’s return in August has something for everyone to enjoy within a range of genres being represented including trance, trap, dubstep, house, hip hop, live electronica and plenty more throughout the spectrum. The list of artists throwing down this year should be more than enough to get the excitement going from the top tier headliners alone: Bassnectar, Zedd & Tiesto.
Personally, I’m more amped about the slew of variety with Griz, Tritonal, Marshmello, Excision, Andy C, Young Thug, Oliver Heldens. With names like these, you’re set to get a taste of everything and anything you could be looking for musically. Honestly, Moonrise is a much needed addition to the north east festival landscape as it provides a different environment than most of the others thrown annually. On a side note if you haven’t already been in the know about their yearly Halloween massive, Nightmare Festival, go check that out as well!
