Soon to be one of the east coast’s premiere music festivals, Moonrise Festival is taking place in less than a month, for the first time. It will be held at the Pimlico Racecourse in Baltimore Maryland. We were able to scope out the venue during Skrillex’ Mothership Tour, and it seems to be a fitting locale for such a huge event. The event will be promoted by Glow Washington DC, and Steez Promo, who you may remember for having put on the installations of Starscape in the past.

The lineup this year looks absolutely killer, almost too killer to comprehend, with headlining acts Kaskade and Bassnectar, top tier acts like Adventure Club, Excision, Rusko, DJ Snake, and Zeds Dead, and lower tier acts like Brillz, Downlink, Figure, and Lindsay Lowend. We’re looking forward to seeing how scheduling will pan out over the two days, because it’s sure to have people running back and forth between the four stages of music. The event is based around the concept of arriving in the morning, around 11 am and leaving as the moon comes up, around 11 pm. For the night owls out there, we are sure there will be plenty of after parties to help you keep burning the midnight oil.

Held on August 9th & 10th, many are eager to see how Moonrise’ first year goes, and it is sure to bring in a crowd from far and wide.
