It feels, in a way, only fitting that Something Wicked would end up dropping the full lineup to their dance extravaganza this year as the west side of the city was getting pummeled by a thunderstorm. Nine months ago the rains came and refused to stop, the result being a festival that didn't happen (although it looks like the afterparty was pretty live). Does today's rain mean anything for October 29-30? No, it doesn't, but we're sure at least one of you will say it does. Don't stop believing.
Joining headliners Diplo, Deorro, Hardwell, Carnage and Excision are, in alphabetical order:
Keys N Krates
Louis the Child
The Polish Ambassador
Any lineup with A-Trak and Seven Lions is worth your time, so this one should go over pretty well with the dance fans already counting down the days until the fest. At least, it should for those who even care about who is spinning. A year ago there were people upset that even with the rain and mud the show did not go on, because some people just want to dance, weather be damned. We respect that. Here's hoping for beautiful weather in a few months.
