John Summit

Baltimore EDM Festival is a two day gathering that brings together electronic dance music fans from around the world. It’s an energetic celebration of driving beats, sick drops and unfettered dance with an unmistakably sense of community. Hosted at Port Covington on Baltimore’s waterfront since 2007, this annual event has become one that EDM fans simply cannot miss!

The festival lineup includes headliners Above & Beyond, John Summit, Louis The Child, Kaskade (Redux), Dillon Francis and San Holo as well as 50+ artists from around the world – both established names and up-and-comers alike.

Summit is a decorated long distance runner and aspiring DJ who made his mark by DJing in Chicago while moonlighting while working a day job. Eventually, his hard work paid off when Defected Records signed his first track, Deep End.

He’s since gained notoriety with his chart-topping hits, featuring collaborations with Sofi Tukker, Vintage Culture and Nic Fanciulli to name a few. As an accomplished producer with plenty of new music coming out soon, we recently got the chance to chat with him about his journey thus far, recent tracks and more.

Louis The Child

Chicago-based duo Louis The Child combine a pop sensibility with energetic dance beats. They’ve achieved chart-topping success with electronic tracks, such as their hit single “It’s Strange” featuring K.Flay.

Robby Hauldren and Freddy Kennett, a DJ-production team comprised of Robby Hauldren and Freddy Kennett, first met at a Madeon concert. From there on out, they knew they had to create music together – though both had side projects underway before joining forces – but it wasn’t until they worked together that their success truly began to shine through.

While releasing multiple EPs, they began to experiment with various musical genres. Drawing inspiration from hip-hop music, they would often layer in distorted steel drum loops and more edgy sounds for added dimension.

Louis The Child released their debut full-length album Here for Now in 2020. Following several EPs, they experimented with more club-friendly sounds before returning to their core influences for Euphoria EP (2021) and To Believe EP (2022).

Since then, Louis The Child has continued to break genre barriers with their sound, crafting songs that are affirmative as well as uplifting and motivating. They’ve collaborated with artists such as Icona Pop, K.Flay and more in the process.

Kaskade (Redux)

Moonrise Festival is Baltimore’s longest running electronic dance music festival, drawing over 35,000 attendees to Pimlico Race Course each year. This event boasts an eclectic lineup featuring dubstep, bass music and house music artists alike.

Kaskade is renowned for his big room trance sounds and captivating melodies. He also has the Redux project, which offers a slower-tempo electronic dance music vibe. If you are an ardent fan of electronic dance music, then seeing Kaskade perform live will be an experience not to be missed!

Dillon Francis

Dillon Francis is an electronic music composer and DJ, specializing in genres like trap, dubstep, and house music. He’s become a major force within the EDM scene having collaborated with renowned artists like Diplo, Martin Garrix, and Brendon Urie.

Dillon recently released his third full-length album, Happy Machine. Featuring 10 incredible vocalists, it’s the ideal blend of EDM and Latin pop.

Billboard Dance recently caught up with Dillon ahead of his project’s release to discuss it, why he wanted to make it, and how the collaborations came together. He also revealed why he initially didn’t want to collaborate with Calvin Harris.

Dillon is not only a musician, but an actor and comedian as well. He stars in the hit comedy series Like and Subscribe, as well as contributing to Viceland’s What Would Diplo Do? series.

He is an enthusiastic supporter of crypto and NFTs (tokens stored on a blockchain). Additionally, he’s working with Decentraland, a 3D virtual environment built upon Ethereum, to provide his fans with a place in the metaverse.

Dillon is a fan favorite and his performances always leave viewers with lasting memories. His DJ sets are constantly evolving, full of surprises and captivating energy – whether playing his original productions or remixes – it’s always something special to witness.

San Holo

San Holo’s debut album, “Album 1,” blurs the line between electronic music and live instruments. He plays his guitar alongside a DJ set to create an original blend of sound that truly stands out. His performance is truly unique in its creative nature.

San Holo is a Dutch DJ, musician, record producer and composer renowned for his remix of Dr. Dre’s “The Next Episode,” which has earned him international recognition with 152 million YouTube views. Additionally, he collaborated with James Vincent McMorrow on his September-released single, “The Future.”
