Music Festivals 2022 Edm
Music festivals are an iconic tradition among dance music connoisseurs. As the festival season approaches, many take time out of their busy schedules to reflect on their experiences.
If you want to relive some of 2022’s most significant moments, attend one of these music festivals! These events offer something special for everyone.
Electric Forest is an international music festival that brings together tens of thousands for four days of celebration and friendship. It is hosted at Double JJ Resort in Rothbury, Michigan, and is renowned for its diverse lineups. As one of the top US festivals, Electric Forest draws music connoisseurs from all corners of the globe.
In addition to music and entertainment, the festival provides attendees with unique creative opportunities. It has a particular art installation program in which artists submit their most daring concepts to build in the forest; those selected receive grants, working credentials to the festival, and support from the production team.
Electric Forest stands out among other music festivals due to its community focus. It welcomes all ages and genders, encouraging an atmosphere of inclusivity by creating spaces for everyone to celebrate their differences.
Many festival-goers find the experience spiritually enlightening and soul-cleansing, while others say it’s socially engaging and delightful. It is an ideal spot for friends to come together and share stories and laughs while participating in various workshops and activities.
It also offers fans the chance to give back through its Wish Machine program, where fans can request donations to various charities and causes. The festival donates a portion of ticket proceeds during the following year’s event as a reward.
Over the past decade, Electric Forest has grown and attracted many people due to the hard work and perseverance of its team members and Forest Family supporters. To mark their 10th anniversary, the festival team recently released a short documentary featuring interviews with many notable members such as Big Gigantic, CloZee, GRiZ, Louis the Child and many more from among their Forest Family community.
Desert Daze is a small music festival that draws an eclectic crowd. Compared to Coachella, which attracts famous artists and social media influencers, Desert Daze caters to music enthusiasts who may not necessarily be wealthy or well-known.
In 2022, Moreno Beach within Lake Perris State Park will host the festival to mark its 10th year with headliners Iggy Pop, Tame Impala and King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard.
This year’s Desert Daze lineup features several returning acts, such as JJUUJJUU (which has its stage), Deap Vally and Julie Edwards Pirrone. Other highlights include rock band Toro y Moi, jazz saxophonist Kamasi Washington and indie-rock group Japanese Breakfast.
The music festival will also showcase some acts different from typical headliners, like DJ-driven band Seun Kuti & Egypt 80 and electronic duo BADBADNOTGOOD. While these acts might not seem fitting for an event like Desert Daze, their distinct styles make them perfect fits.
Other acts worth checking out at this year’s Desert Daze include Belgian duo Charlotte Adigery & Bolis Pupul, Al Lover (a newcomer to the scene), Psychedelic Porn Crumpets and Tuareg blues band Imarhan. While all these acts make for an impressive line-up, the three headliners truly set Desert Daze apart from all others.
Desert Daze is more than a music festival; it’s an experience. From listening to your favourite band on the main stage to floating in a pool of water at sunset, you’re sure to feel euphoria from this unique gathering of artists. It’s the ideal way to escape everyday stressors for an enjoyable getaway.
Since 2011, Escape Halloween has rapidly grown into North America’s largest electronic music festival. Bringing together some of music’s biggest names, this annual event draws in all sorts of ghoulish characters and costumed revellers for two nights of thrilling Halloween activities under the watchful gaze of Resurgent Grimm.
This festival, featuring themed stages, immersive art installations and costumed performers on its festival grounds, has been a landmark of Southern California for over a decade. In 2023 it will return with an incredible electronic lineup to commemorate Halloween.
The event occurs at the NOS Events Center in San Bernardino and is part of Insomniac’s extensive series of festivals. Visitors are sure to have an incredible time with carnival rides and four themed stages for unforgettable entertainment!
This year’s festival featured plenty of fire effects across its four stages. The Grim stage featured a skeleton draped in a sheet that moved its arms, while the Feeding Grounds stage featured thick white webs on the ceiling with monsters and spiders dancing alongside heavy bass sets from acts like Shiverz and The Prototypes.
At the festival, Crazy Town emerged as another spooky attraction. This town was filled with dark characters and events, such as a butcher shop and a secret stage. It had plenty of action, a silent disco and a graveyard lit with fireworks at nightfall.
The Oasis, a judgment-free zone where guests can take a break from all the chaos, was an excellent feature for those wanting to take a break from the ghoulish activities. Those struggling with the festival’s spooky elements could also find support and resources to get through their night.
Creamfields is an annual music festival held each August bank holiday weekend in Daresbury, Cheshire (near Warrington and Liverpool). The event boasts an unbeatable lineup featuring some of the biggest names in dance music.
