5. Movement - Detroit, MI - May 25th-May 27th
While Detroit may have topped Forbes’ 2013 list for “American’s Most Miserable Cities,” they’ve still got one thing to remain proud of: Movement Electronic Music Festival. The long-standing event coalesces talent from both mainstream and underground realms of dance music, creating a star-studded cast of musicians spanning a wide spectrum of genres and eras. Movement 2013 has come and gone, but it’s never too early to start drooling over next year’s event.
4. Camp Bisco - Pattersonville, NY - July 11th-13th
On the other side of the United States, we have Camp Bisco. The New York-based festival has grown exponentially since its inception in 1999, steadily gaining speed while sportin’ a jaw-dropping lineup packed full of stellar producers. Camp out, observe all the beautiful people, and don’t forget to get a little weird. Or a lot weird, whichever you prefer.
3. HARD Summer - Los Angeles, CA - August 3rd-4th
Alright HARD Summer, we see what you did there. The game-changing event has been known to pull consistently impressive lineups for a long time now, but this summer’s gala was just ridiculous. Don’t be afraid to let your jaw drop as your scroll down the lineup, featuring established and upcoming producers from around the globe. Did we mention they got a live set from Rudimental? Yea, that happened.
2. Electric Forest - Rothbury, MI - June 27th-30th
Electric Forest is another festival with a completely self-explanatory name. You’ve got yourself a spellbinding forest coated in bright lights, and that’s simply where the magic begins. Miles from any major city, and even farther from ordinary, this life-altering gathering of sound combines digital with nature like none other, and there will be bass. This is festival nirvana, and an event you don’t ever want to miss.
