The impending arrival of spring signals the welcome return of festival season. One of the lineups we've waiting for has been revealed. Sonic Bloom founders have announced a handful of acts for the annual fest, slated to take place just outside of Georgetown from Thursday, June 21, through Sunday, June 24. From the looks of it, this year's lineup will rival some of the nation's biggest events happening this summer. Page down to take a look at the preliminary line-up, and keep your mouse-clicking muscles limber: Tickets go on sale at noon today.
Last year saw a lot big names on the two stages set-up at Shadows Ranch in Georgetown, including Zilla, for whom the festival was originally named (Zilla Campout), Michael Travis (String Cheese Incident, EOTO), Jamie Janover and Aaron Holstein (Vibesquad), Prophet Massive (Jason Hann of EOTO and String Cheese Incident), MArtyPArty (Marty Folb, PantyRaid), and local dubstep guru DJ Ishe (Nate Ishe - Whomp Truck, Sub.Mission), to name a few.
So far, this year's line-up seems equally as enticing:
- ESKMO - Random Rab - Bonobo - Emancipator - Ott - Papadosio
- ZILLA - Minnesota - Ana Sia - GRiZ - Octopus Nebula - Heyoka - VibesquaD - Ill-Esha - Govinda - Stephan Jacobs - Phutureprimitive - Adham Shaikh - Gladkill - Bird of Prey - Lotus Drops - Akara Project - Thriftworks - Dov - Russ Liquid - Kaminanda - SuperVision - Paul Basic - Tipper
