Everyone and their mom is either innovating and eating tacos in Austin at SXSW or relaxing poolside in Miami for Miami Music Week, but that does not stop other festivals from trying to steal a little bit of the thunder with lineup announcements of their own. Kansas City's Dancefestopia has unveiled its own 2016 lineup headlined by Gramatik, GRiZ, RL Grime, the Bingo Players, Adventure Club and others.
Borgore, Excision, EOTO, NGHTMRE, Seven Lions, Headhunterz and Vinai are also included on top of the bill.
As seen by the top of the lineup, the bill is quite heavy on various type of bass music. That does not mean fans will blow out their eardrums to dubstep the entire three days. Others like Prince Fox, Kayzo, Hunter Sigel, REZZ, SMLE, Louis Futon and the Lost Kings will all provide some semblance of balance to this EDM fest with accessible house and techno.
Headhunterz is the primary focus for hardstyle, while Gramatik and GRiZ will be the main men to bring the funk over the two days.
There will be plenty of names to represent dubstep with the top of the bill like Adventure Club and Excision, who does not hold back with the wattage thrown at fans, Dabin, Liquid Stranger, Protohype, Seven Lions, Mitis, Mayhem vs Antiserum and K Theory all at the controls. Some trap will be sprinkled in by RL Grime, JSTJR and others.
Last year's lineup was topped by Bassnectar and Porter Robinson.
Dancefestopia will take place in Kansas City at the Berkley Riverfront Park from Sept. 9-11.
GA, VIP and camping passes are on sale now. See the full lineup below.
