You didn’t think electronic music was going anywhere, did you?
Sounds of dub step and electro beats can be heard playing in the background of everywhere from shopping malls to restaurants these days; and that’s not even including your weekly house music hot spot. Festivals such as Coachella, Bonaroo, Electric Zoo, and Ultra have been getting rave reviews from electronic music enthusiasts, gathering tens of thousands of people every year. Although an amazing experience, these festivals tend to last for days, draining both mind and wallet. Taking that into consideration, the people over at Skullcandy are treating EDM fans to a one day festival to keep the music flowing beyond their stylish headphone gear.
Identity Festival (ID Fest for short) will be touring across 20 US cities this summer with various stages and tents filling the air with funky synthesized beats. Kicking of August 11th in Noblesville, Indiana, the traveling electronic circus will headline international house music maven, Kaskade, along with major electronic acts such as Avicii, Disco Biscuits, Pretty Lights, Pete Tong, Rusko, and Chuckie on the Skullcandy Main Stage. The Rockstar Energy Drinks / Dim Mak Festival Stage will showcase acts such as DJ Shadow, Holy Ghost!, and headlined by Dim Mak Recordings golden child, Steve Aoki.
For those who hold a special place in their heart for even more avant-garde electro music, Identity Festival will also incorporate an Underground Stage with an electrifying mix of underground DJs including Nervo, LA Riots, and Manufactured Superstars.
The first-ever traveling electronic music only festival definitely caught the eye of headliner, Kaskade. The DJ/Producer recently sat down for an exclusive Identity Festival YouTube interview about the tour and gushed, “The reason I was so interested in the ID festival is that no one has ever done anything like this before."
For the next 20 hours only, Skullcandy is giving Identity Festival goers a treat. Tickets for any city’s Identity Festival are selling for just $20!
