Boy, Moonrise Festival 2017 was a spectacle!
It fell on warm summer days, ideal for the festivities. Moonrise consisted of four stages, which often left attendees sprinting through foot traffic, and it took place over a two-day span in the heart of Baltimore, Maryland, on Aug. 12-13. Here is our recap of the highlights!

Moonrise Festival, Baltimore’s flagship electronic music festival, returns to Pimlico Race Course on Saturday, Aug. 12, and Sunday, Aug. 13. I have a playlist to get you excited about this outstanding festival, which features headliners Afrojack, Big Gigantic, Porter Robinson, Run The Jewels, Zeds Dead, and many more!

Recently, our focus is locked in on the talented producer and disc jockey, Abraham Laguna, better known as Ookay. The talented Ookay started making high energy house beats while he was attending community college under the name “Leisure.” He has since transitioned into his current moniker releasing consecutive bass hits, trap after trap!
Ookay dropped by Echostage to open for NGHTMRE on May 19 during MEGA DC.

Hey everybody welcome back! This week I had the pleasure to review the high energy, banana-enthused duo DadaLife! The Swedish duo, Olle Cornéer and Stefan Engblom, took D.C by storm at Echostage on Saturday, and I was delighted to be apart of what will surely go down as one of the most eventful, jaw dropping shows I’ve reviewed this year thus far!

The spring night began in anticipation as fans awaited from high in the lawn to deep in the pit for Joel Zimmerman’s performance. And Joel, better known as Deadmau5, delivered a performance I’ll always remember at Merriweather Post Pavilion on April 8.
