Starscape Festival 2012: Preview

Posted by on May 24, 2012

EDC NY went out with a bang and a bass drop on Sunday night, leaving us to stagger numbly out of MetLife, onto public transit, and back into the bleak, bleak world beyond the gates. Exiting a festival is never a great feeling. But now we’re a few days out and it’s officially time to start looking ahead to the next event — in other words, it’s time to get hyped.

For some of you, that next event will be EDC’s flagship festival. But for those of you who won’t be able to jet off to Vegas in two weeks, pay attention to these next few sentences. On June 9th, Starscape Festival brings the garden of Eden to Baltimore’s Ft. Armistead park for the fourteenth year in a row, and by all accounts it’s going to be bigger and better than ever.

There are two things to take away from the above infographic. First: Sixteen hours of nonstop music. Yes, you read that correctly. Sixteen hours. By the beard of Zeus. And second: Holy facemelt, Batman, that lineup is insane. I don’t even want to run through it because I’ll probably wind up transcribing it in its glorious, dubstep/DnB-heavy entirety. But for the sake of conversation…

Flux Pavilion. Chase and Status. Modestep. Shpongle. Funtcase. Camo & Krooked. Noisia. Cookie Monsta. Zomboy. Dieselboy. Skism. Terravita. Bare. Delta Heavy. Figure. Mimosa. GOODNESS. That is quite literally a litany of filth. Then we’ve got Sazon Booya, Tittsworth, and ETC!ETC! bringing the moombah love. And finally, a few nondescript, under the radar acts you’ve probably never even heard of: Zedd, Dillon Francis, Kill The Noise, and Dada Life. Who are those guys? Yeah, no idea.

If Knife Party’s Rage Valley EP can’t come soon enough, if you find yourself head knocking unabashedly at your desk at work, if you hate it when festivals end at 11 p.m. and you don’t know what to do with yourself, if you enjoy watching the sunrise from a beach….then Starscape has your name on it. Middy and I will be out in full force bringing the FNT party. We hope to see you there!
