Moonrise Music Festival

My fellow ravers, it’s that time of the year again. In just a few short weeks, everyone will be exactly where they are supposed to be. Get ready to be immersed in a place full of peace, love, unity and respect. Moonrise Festival 2019 is just around the corner, and it’s coming back even better than ever.

The annual festival will be returning home to Pimlico Racecourse in Baltimore, Maryland, on Saturday, August 10th and Sunday, August 11th. Festival goers from all across the country migrate from their homes preparing to have one of the best weekends of their lives. Not to mention, this years lineup features some of the hottest EDM acts that will have ravers running from stage to stage. With headliners Excision, Illenium, and a GUD VIBRATIONS set presented by NGHTMRE and Slander, everyone should be prepared to have their face melted off… Maybe even a couple of times.

Presented by Steez Promo and Glow DC, the journey of Moonrise first took off in 2014. Since then, Moonrise has been destined for success. Their very first year featured big name headliners such as Bassnectar, Kaskade, and Adventure Club. In 2015, Bassnectar came back for round two, alongside  Above & Beyond. As for 2016, the festival had a rise in attendees by virtue of the lineup. It was a bass parade provided by Bassnectar, The Chainsmokers, Zedd, and Tiesto. 2017 really brought the heat with the headbanging legend Excision, Porter Robinson, Zeds Dead, and Big Gigantic. Last year, the lineup did us dirty again. Showcasing notable artists such as Illenium, Rezz, Griz, Liquid Stranger, Ganja White Night, and many other artists on the rise.

This summer, Moonrise is now making its return for its 6th consecutive year. In that time, the festival has earned a reputation of being one of the most popular and diverse electronic dance music festivals on the east coast, accompanying over 30,000 attendees.

Moonrise is considered one of the best festivals on the east coast for multiple reasons. There are four main stages, covering everything from heavy hitting bass, dubstep, house, hard style, trap, and everything in between. At Stellar Stage, be sure to catch Grammy award-winning producer Tiesto. Illenium’s set is an absolute must. He incites a feeling of nostalgia that will hits the feels. His track, a personal favorite,  “Crawl Outta Love,” explains it all. The best part is that within a blink of an eye, ravers will find themselves head-banging on the rail. Illenium is known for his transitions, which hits his crowd to the core in the best way possible.

The Lunar Stage brings everyone together with a diverse mixture of sets. Calling all rail breakers: be sure to throw those ‘X’s UP’ at Excisions set. Top artist San Holo will also be leaving the crowd with a magical feeling that seeps within the bones. The Celestial Garden will be attracting all shufflers. This stage is filled with notable house music artists that will keep everyone on their feet, such as AC Sater, Justin Martin, and Shiba San

Searching for those filthy drops leaving that create that face melting bass? Head down to the Solar Tent, and this year it’s better than ever, with its new and improved design. The Solar Tent’s size has increased up to 60% more space in the tent, creating more space for a crowd that likes to move. Some other changes to look forward to are the groundbreaking visuals that will form an entirely new dimension.

Another way to experience Moonrise is to take a ride around the ferris wheel, which gifts a view that won’t be forgotten. It’s structured within unique art installations, live talent, and unique food/merch vendors. Also, the production gets “Bigger and Better,” announced by Moonrise Festival itself this year on Facebook. The audio and lighting production will be rising to a whole other level, providing blinding lasers and booming bass, the entire event will collocate everything a person could want in a festival.

With that being said, become a part of the #mooncrew and make sure to lock in those tickets asap!
