Moonrise Festival Shines Bright for 2018 Festival Season


The Moonrise festival is bringing yet another exciting show to Maryland. This year’s end of summer festivities will be hot because the Moonrise lineup is fire. Baltimore’s flagship EDM festival returns to the historic Pimlico Racetrack on, August 11-12. When it does, it will be host to some of the biggest DJs in the industry.

Steez Promo and Club Glow are responsible for throwing spectacular shows at Echostage, Soundcheck, and Soundstage. They have also done an awesome job of developing the alien, space-themed festival since it began in 2014. In that time, the festival has grown, attracting more than 30,000 revelers last year. If they continue to bring lineups such as this 2018 festival, Moonrise will surely explode. It will soon be a strong national festival contender.

Let’s discuss this lineup! Moonrise will be hosting some awesome sets. The Stellar stage will feature Kaskade, the Lunar stage is shining bright with Griz, the Solar tent is blasting Rezz and the Celestial stage illuminates Anna Lunoe. Those are just a few highlights from each stage. There are so many other must-see sets making Moonrise an event you can’t miss.

One noted wow factor of this stellar festival is the fusion of beat thumping genres. Each of the four stages will display a mixture of EDM genres such as bass, dubstep, hardstyle, house and its many sub-genres, and trap. Many of the styles that Baltimorians and Washingtonians have come to love. Between the two cities’ rich history of creating their own sub-genres, Baltimore club music, and D.C. go-go, Moonrise is definitely catering to the DMV’s (D.C., Maryland & Virginia) fast-paced and rush seeking music palate.
