Middlelands 2017: Four Before and After-Parties Announced
With preparations leading up to the inaugural Middlelands music festival in full swing, Insomniac has announced four additional parties to take place both before and after the festival. The adventure will continue within the expansive campgrounds located onsite. Bassrush will be hosting the official warm-up party on Thursday night, while Night Owl Radio will be curating the official after-parties taking place once the festival has ended each night.
Taking place at the Insomniac Sound Camp in Conqueror’s Court, Bassrush will present the Middlelands kick-off party. Now I can definitely say that this lineup is stacked. 12th Planet, Carlyle, Crizzly, Madhatter, Space Jesus and Tim Gunter will be gracing our ears with some bass filled beats in preparation for the main event the following day. This kick-off party will only be for Lords and Ladies camping on the Middlelands grounds. The party will be taking place from 7pm – 1am.
However, the Night Owl Radio Crew will be delivering an entire weekend of sounds from an eclectic mix of artists, each night after the festival ends and into the early morning. Friday night (May 5) will be playing host to NGHTMRE, Tim Gunter, and Tokimonsta. Saturday night (May 6), Ekali, Louis the Child, and What So Not b2b Quix will be gracing the after-party stage. Last but not least, on Sunday night (May 7), Carlyle, Dimond Saints, and Snails will be closing out the weekend. Be sure not to miss any of these after-parties! These official parties are open to both Middleland campers and Festival attendees. These festivities will take place from 12:30am – 4am.
Within the Middlelands campgrounds is the centrally located Conqueror’s Court. Campers will find 24-hour access to interactive amenities like arts and crafts, a bountiful farmers market, bustling bar areas, sports competitions, a butcher shop, hammocks and swings, free water, and much more. For those that will be arriving early on Wednesday, May 3, an arrival bonfire (complete with S’mores) will be held at 8pm with exciting activities extending throughout the entire weekend.
Fans also have the chance to win festival tickets, camping passes, and a meet & greet with Kristian Nairn, also known as Game of Thrones character, Hodor. One lucky winner will receive four VIP Middlelands festival passes (if 21+, otherwise GA), one Arbor Court Camping Pass in the Preferred Camping lot, and a special meet & greet with DJ Kristian Nairn before or after his set with up to three additional friends. The sweepstakes ends on April 10 at 12 PM CT and does not include airfare or travel. Enter to win at insom.co/MiddlelandsKN.
Looking forward to seeing my fellow Lords and Ladies at the inaugural Middlelands Music Festival next month!
