Come and Party on the Moon with Moonrise 2017

by Charlotte Vosbeck

For the past five years in early August people have migrated from all over to go to Washington DC area’s premier festival, Moonrise Festival. Steez Promo and Glow team together to throw one of the biggest parties of the year for the DC area. There are so many reasons why this festival is one of my absolute favorites. The smaller venue creates an intimate feel for the attendees, each element of the festival has been carefully thought out, the diverse line up, and the view from the top of the Ferris wheel.   Every year since the start of Moonrise they have put out amazing line ups that compete with some of the biggest festivals in the US. In 2013 they kicked off the first year with Pretty Lights and Snoop Dog. Kaskade and Bassnectar headlined in 2014. Bassnectar returned in 2015 along with Above & Beyond, Porter Robinson Live, and Dillon Francis. Last year had some big names including Bassnectar, The Chainsmokers, Tiesto and Zedd. If there’s one thing Moonrise can’t do its drop disappointing line ups.   I’m so excited for Moonrise’s return this August 12 and 13th at Pimlico Race Course. Phase One of the lineup was released last week and not a single person I know was displeased with it. Some of the notable artists include Afrojack, Big Gigantic, Porter Robinson, Excision, Yellow Claw, Zeds Dead, Madeon, and Gramatik.   Porter Robinson and Madeon have had an incredible past year on their Shelter tour together. Each artist is so individually talented that they are both guaranteed to put out a stellar performance. People went crazy for the 13 track album Big Gigantic released last year, “Brighter Future”. Those guys can do crazy things with a saxophone. They get better every time I see them.   With such a massive phase one line up, I can’t even prepare myself for the artists they are going to add in phase two. This festival is going to be one you don’t want to miss this festival season!   Get your Tickets TODAY!]]]]> ]]>
