Back when we unloaded Phase 3 of The Untz Festival lineup, we said "OK, folks, that's it--we're not adding any more artists." So we lied. Big deal! We just couldn't keep the loads of talent off the bill that we were sitting on, so here it is, our final lineup additions. We promise.
Since the beginning of this year, indie hip-hop icon Mux Mool has been joining our editor-in-chief for semi-educational, always confrontional, and mostly non-sensical live streams under the Late Lunch moniker. Playing tunes, discussing EDM news, and mostly ragging on aging action heroes from the 90's, Mux Mool has become a fixture of The Untz brand, so we're beyond thrilled to bring him on board as a performer June 2-4 in Mariposa, CA at the Mariposa County Fairgrounds.
Mux Mool is nearing completion of his next album, The Downbeat, and has also been joining Pretty Lights on various high-profile live incarnations as Derek Vincent Smith's pad drummer. Secret sets in Las Vegas and New Orleans have brought the lo-fi hip-hop producer into the Pretty Lights Music family, and we're excited to bring him into ours with this lineup addition.
We also welcome on board The Untz Challenge winners, BIONIK and Spundose. In addition to The Untz Festival, these two hustling acts will be playing six other festivals as part of their prize. Where Stefon Taylor's BIONIK beats are steeped in hip-hop and trap, Chris Johannesen's Spundose tunes occupy the psybass realm, which really fills out our sonic offering in the exotic, trippy side of the underground electronic music scene with Phutureprimitive, Kalya Scintilla, Kaminanda, Sixis, and more.
Finally, we have a special treat from the Evanoff boys. In addition to a rip-roaring set from the dream rock trio, drummer Jake Hall and JJ Evanoff will perform a DJ set as Oomah & Evanoff for fans, as part of our insistence our fans get a taste of something cool and different like Unlimited Gravity B2B Project Aspect and a legendary Amani vs Teapot set from the founders of Desert Dwellers.
These acts join The Werks, Turbo Suit, Mr. Bill, Wick-it The Instigator, Marvel Years, Bass Physics, Illenium, Crywolf, Said The Sky, Fractal, and so many more artists from around the industry. Early Bird tickets remain on-sale through 4/20, and then prices jump after that, so get on it, people. We want to see you in northern California in June. This will be an event like no other.
