With dance music's increasing popularity stateside it comes as no surprise that someone would get a bunch of DJs to hit the road together playing amphitheaters across the country. Last year's inaugural trek of the IDentity Festival was so successful that putting it on again this year was a no-brainer.

Once again the tour swung through Houston hitting the Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion, bringing in kids in funny outfits from across the area to rage outdoors and perhaps confuse a mounted police officer or two.

After successful trips to both Summer Fest and the Warped Tour this summer we decided that another festival wouldn't be our doom. After all, it's not every weekend you get the chance to see some of EDM's finest out of Stereo Live and in the harsh light of day.
