An outdoor EDM festival in Texas in October is feast or famine. For the first few years it was around, Something Wicked got lucky, with bright days and mild weather giving fans a pleasant experience dancing outside at Sam Houston Race Park. Unfortunately, in 2015 the rains came and would not stop, and as a result Something Wicked was not to be. The festival tries to bounce back in 2016 with Diplo — who you may have danced to at ACL if Radiohead wasn’t your thing — and Hardwell at the top of a fairly fun lineup. Acts to keep an ear out for include 3Lau, A-Trak, Gareth Emery and Seven Lions, in addition to the others on the bill that you’d pay to see headline over at Stereo Live. Texas weather being what it is, there’s no telling what Mother Nature has in store for the festival this year, but one thing we’ve learned about EDM fans is this: If you give them a dance floor, they’ll dance, rain or shine or somewhere in between.
