The Return of ILLfest


ILLfest is a fourth-year Music & Art Festival in Austin, TX that features 50 plus artists. This year ILLfest is locked in for February 18-19 at a new venue to call home, the Circuit of the Americas! I’m buzzing, vibrating, and drooling at the thought of being back for 48 hours, finally.

All of this insane music, otherworldly performance art, high octane activities, and food will make you forget all about your failed quarantine sourdough experiments after all.  Nevertheless, to make up for the lost time, they’re going all out on production this year and YOU DO NOT WANT TO MISS THIS!

ILLfest lineup

Trust me when I saw they don’t make music festivals like this anymore. At ILLfest, they don’t just serve up the biggest names in electronic music. They go to ridiculous lengths to make it look and feel sensational too. Creatives and artists are given total freedom to unleash their wildest ideas and craziest ambitions into the real world. This is all to make ILLfest a weekend of reality-bending filled with mind-expanding excitement. ILLfest might be on the smaller side for a festival but it sure packs a mighty big punch. It has a spicy reputation of creating highly charged, intensely immersive experiences that you simply won’t find anywhere else!

This year’s headliners include a mind-blowing and rare B2B set feature bass and trap producers RL Grime & Baauer closing out the show on Friday night, and EDM pioneer Kaskade playing the final set on Saturday. Kaskade’s set will be followed by a highly sought-after Kaskade “Redux Set” afterparty! ILLfest will be the first time in history that Texas will host both the RL Grime B2B Baauer and Kaskade Redux sets!!
