Our dream is becoming a reality. Since TheUntz.com got off the ground six years ago, it's been a goal of the senior staff to hold a super intimate friends and family camping gathering with incredible performances from some of our favorite musicians from around the industry. It's our pleasure to announce that June 2-4 at Mariposa County Fairgrounds in Mariposa, CA, we get to do just that.
The Phase 1 lineup of our inaugural festival brings together some of our biggest homies and inspirations from across the electronic music spectrum. Because audiences of underground electronic music have cultivated such a variety of tastes and our fans in particular seem to appreciate the same incredible talents we find to be the real deal, we were able to assemble a lineup that not only ticks our boxes for our personal preferences, but also brought together a bunch of artists who our fans will dig.
Starting with the top three names on our lineup, fans of psychedelic tunes, sacred bass, and downtemple dub will be thrilled to hear we've cornered the market with our friends Desert Dwellers, Kalya Scintilla & Eve Olution, and the inimitable Kaminanda. Throw in a little Sixis, and the trippy low-end is covered.
Fans of the mercurial music of Wick-it The Instigator, which runs from jaw-dropping turntablism hip-hop jockeying to guitar-shredding, funk-blasting, bass-fueled mayhem, will know that the party has arrived. And for those of us who crave our glitch-hop with an extra dose of weird bass, Australia's own Mr. Bill is on the case.
We know melodic bass inside and out, so we have assembled an unmatched selection of the some of the youngest, brightest stars in the scene. ILLENIUM, Fractal, Siren, and Said The Sky will unleash all the feels on our friends and family.
Our bread and butter is livetronica, and we have dug deep to bring out some of our favorites, and those who we think will be the banner-holders for the genre for years to come. Representing all the various incarnations of live electronic hybrids and jamtronica acts, we've got Bass Physics, Marvel Years, Dynohunter, YAMN, and Evanoff. And don't think we forgot you, electro-soul and future funk fans, because SugarBeats and Lucid Vision are holding it down with more to come.
What you get with this initial lineup is a promise that The Untz is going to deliver the fun and funky vibes of a jam festival in the midwest in the stunning beauty of northern California. Just an hour from the mouth of Yosemite National Park, folks looking for an excuse to escape to the breath-taking forests of NorCal just found one. With four stages, including two indoor late-night stages that go all night long, and a special pre-party on June 2, it will be the intimate camping experience set against a beautiful backdrop you've been looking for.
