For those folks tired of almost dying of heat exhaustion in order to get their EDM fix, Something Wicked is an oasis in this distance, a chance to dress up and dance all night without feeling like you're stuck in a sauna for hours.
Unless, of course, the fall is unseasonably warm; this being Texas, it's not impossible.
Earlier today, the folks at Billboard released the lineup for Something Wicked 2015, taking place up north at the Sam Houston Race Park on October 24 and 25. Saturday's headliners are trance gods Above & Beyond and the guy who wrote that song they play at the Texans games all the time, DJ Snake. Sunday's headliners are the duo made up of Diplo and that guy who refuses to book a non-festival date in Houston (Skrillex) as Jack Ü, plus noted cake thrower Steve Aoki.
The undercard features some pretty stellar acts, including but not limited to Benny Benassi, Chainsmokers, Seven Lions and Texas' own Tritonal.
