Every year What the Festival brings the best underground talent around with genres ranging from instrumental funk, to mind blowing bass music. What the Fest has been known for bringing the best up and coming talent and underground names, so this year we are here to inform you of all the incredible talent on the 2016 lineup.

This year we have been blessed yet again by the house music gods with acts from Claptone, Claude Vonstroke, J. Phlip, Motez, Darius and of course Ardalan! If you are a house music fan, these are artists you will not want to miss. We were lucky enough this year to get a return from the lovely Claude Vonstroke, who grooved the whole pool stage for the Dirtybird pool party in 2014. Not only will we receive a heavy dose of funky house music, but will also experience loads of future bass. Many artists featured on the lineup this year bring an incredibly futuristic sound, completely breaking the barrier for music today.  Some of these artists are delivering a sound no one has ever heard before, which is why the talent recruiters at What the Festival have been known to discover talent far before any other festival. Most electronic based festivals solely book electronic acts, but this year some artists featured on the lineup such as Lettuce are instrumental. In order for you all to be as familiar with the lineup as possible, we put together a playlist of the must see artists this year at What the Festival!

All of these songs featured in this playlist are songs we felt were the best representation of each artist.

What the Festival has rapidly become one of the most sought out festivals in the Pacific Northwest, bringing together like-minded souls, art, creativity, and music. Do not miss out on this year and be sure to explore the talent on the lineup as much as possible!
