IDentity Festival Returns To Miami
By Carla Torres
North America’s first traveling electronic music festival returns to Miami August 4th at Bayfront Park. This year’s line-up will feature some of the most exciting names in EDM such as Eric Pridz, Excision, Paul Van Dyk, Madeon, Wolfgang Gartner, Porter Robinson, Nero, Arty, Showtek, Noisia, and more.
The festival is visiting 15 cities throughout July and August and Miami has made its way on the list. Was there ever any doubt? But besides the Magic City, ID Fest will be in major US cities including Boston, Atlanta, Dallas, San Francisco, and New York.
We can’t wait to see and interview some of these DJ’s to see what they have in store, especially recent birthday boy Porter Robinson who just turned 20 years old on my birthday. I wonder how he celebrated. That’s just one of the things on our list of questions for the no-longer promising teenage talent. We’ll celebrate his young age and success right along side him at IDentity Fest.
Something else to celebrate is the return of Eric Prydz to the US. He hasn’t toured here since 2007 due to a fear of flying, but with his new album ‘Eric Prydz Presents Pryda’ and a unique IDENTITY live show, this is one road trip (key word being road) he just couldn’t miss.
Tr3s is just going to have to hook up with Prydz somehow and find out exactly what happened to him on an airplane that was so bad that kept him from the states all this time. His Ibiza residences, European festival smashes and char-topping hits have undoubtedly served as inspiration for his friend and collaborators formerly known as Swedish House Mafia.
And to keep the European theme going, IDENTITY has also ensured that French teen sensation Madeon will play in support of his debut album release. We can’t wait to see what he has in store after all the hype from his recent sets at Ultra and Coachella.
As if that’s not enough it’s been recently announced that Rye Rye, J Devil, Kerli, Stephan Jacobs, Cole Plante, DVBBS, Eva Simons, and The Eye will all be joining IDENTITY festival to ensure that no minute is wasted without top-notch live entertainment and talent.
General admission tickets for the all ages event are available on the website as well as information about the show.
So as the countdown begins for IDENTITY festival to hit Miami (T-minus 12 days) we can barely contain ourselves. Can you?
