It seems like only two weeks ago that we were talking about the upcoming year of dance-music festivals. At the time we were talking about the heavyweight lineup that UME had assembled for this year's Spring Break on South Padre Island. Today we have a different festival with a different type of lineup, but one that is just as exciting.
Out in Austin, the Euphoria Music + Camping Festival is joining the ranks of Levitation and South By So What as early-2015 festivals worth checking out in the Lone Star State. Although it is decidedly more electronic than those two, they're doing their part to remind folks that Texas festivals exist outside of ACL, FFF Fest and FPSF.
So who is joining the previously announced headliner Pretty Lights?
The 2015 Euphoria Music + Camping Festival lineup includes:
Headliners: Ghostland Observatory Adventure Club STS9 Thievery Corporation
Along With: Archnemesis; Black Tiger Sex Machine; Break Science; Eliot Lipp; Emancipator Ensemble; Eminence Ensemble; Festiva; Focal Point; The Geek X VRV; Govinda; Grandtheft; Greenhouse Lounge; Herobust; Kap Slap; Khris Royal's Dark Matter; Kill Them With Colour; Late Night Radio; The Malah; Manic Focus; Modern Measure; Paper Diamond; Sunsquabi; SuperVision; Vibe Street; The Werks; and Zoogma
All in all, a nice mix of DJs and live acts, chill and rowdy, well-known and up-and-coming. If you have any sort of interest in electronic music there's something you're sure to dig with this lineup.
Let us give a big "well done" to the folks over at Houston's Havin' a Ball Productions for what you've put together so far, but... well... how do we say this...
A Houston company putting together a killer electronic music show in Austin? Good for them. Good for you. Now, how about giving the Bayou City some beats to dance to?
