As #FESTIVALSZN begins to wind down, favorite acts become distant memories and your bank account slowly tries to repair itself from the damage you’ve done. But let us not forget about the two or three more festivals in the upcoming months that have stolen our hearts and money. With lineups so grand, we’ll happily accept those overdraft fees — one being the Moonrise Festival in Baltimore, MD.
The birthplace of our national anthem, Baltimore is easy to travel to and a beautiful location. As far as Moonrise itself, the fest managed to snag a large variety heavy hitter acts from all subgenres of EDM. King of Dub, Bassnectar, versatile duo, the Chainsmokers, OG, Tiesto, and the master of pop/dance infusion, Zedd are the four main acts over the two days. You can check out the rest of the lineup here, but I have no worries you’ll find at least five acts you’re dying to see.
To add to the hype, I curated a playlist featuring most of the artists that will be performing. You have 17 days to scrape together $164.50 for a GA ticket, give or take some service fees, roughly $167 for a flight to Baltimore (on Spirit ofc), $8 for airplane snacks, and an airbnb for $173. You got this, fam.
Remember it’s for the plur.
