We are packing up our cars to make the very flat drive across Kansas so we can cover the insane lineup that is coming to this year’s Dancefestopia in Kansas City. From massive headliners like Bassnectar and Datsik to the numerous local DJs performing, it is set to be a incredible final celebration of the summer. Before we go to see this massive festival there are a few artists we want to highlight who will be hitting the stage this upcoming weekend with some of the hottest tracks out there right now!
First of our highlighted artist is Snails, a Canadian producer/DJ who with the support of artists like JackÜ, Flosstradamus, and more has been
gaining mass attention due to his hard hitting sound and wild style. Having recently taken Beta Nightclub to max capacity and a performance at Red Rocks coming soon during Rowdytown with Big Gigantic, he is soon going to be headlining shows around the world. His recent EP “#FreeTheVomit” brought with it some absolutely massive tracks and he recently remixed his own track “King Is Back” with future house master Ghastly. Check it out below and make sure to catch his set this weekend:

Next on our list of must see acts not only shares Snails love of wild bass heavy music, but also a record label. Off of the Kannibalen Records lineup is genre breaking trio Black Tiger Sex Machine, who hidden behind their impressive helmets has taken to the stages of festivals like Electric Zoo and Canada’s ÎleSoniq. Combining a wide variety of platforms including launchers, drum machines, and CDJ’s the group controls their wild tunes as they take the crowd on ride accompanied by their heavy beats. Check out their set this weekend in Kansas City and also when they head to Colorado for stops at The Fox Theater and Rawkus, also take a peek at their live demo video featuring their unique performance style:
While we can’t highlight everyone on the lineup we want to highlight one of the biggest names in the Colorado music scene, Illenium, who will be heading to Kansas City with his epic remixes and fantastic originals. Based in Denver we have caught this young artists at several Global Dance events throughout the state and look forward to his success taking him to stages around the world, as well as his first headlining show at The Bluebird in Denver on October 15th. Check out his recent remix he did for Kaskade and be sure to head to his performance this weekend:

These three artists only make up a tiny part of the entire Dancefestopia lineup but they highlight some of the artists who will soon be performing in Colorado or who we believe reflect the CO scene’s music taste the best. We cant wait to catch these acts and many other this upcoming weekend in Kansas City and look forward to what should be a fantastic event!
