With the full lineup announcement coming in, the artists have been separated out into their stages with heavyweights like Bassnectar, Rocky and Passion Pit on the main stage, dubbed the Power Plant, while the Float Den gets the big name dance acts leaning toward trap and hip-hop and the Ball Room gives an eclectic mix of hip-hop and indie. The Back Alley will feature primarily more underground dance DJs.
