After the debacle of SMF last year, fans wondered what was to come of SMF 2019. Was it going to return? What would the line up look like? Would a little bit of rain stop us from dancing again?
I have been attending Sunset Music Festival going on four years now and honestly last years lineup was a MAJOR disappointment as it was a very bass heavy lineup. Now don’t get me wrong, your girl loves some dubstep, but having some variety at a festival is a major key. Then of course, the second day was cancelled on the count of the “weather”, even thought the day ended up being full of sunshine while the first day rained all day long. Which I must say, I came prepared for the rain and loved every second of day one.
After SMF announced the first phase for this year, I knew they weren’t playing, and Disco Donnie came to redeem themselves. I told myself the only way I would go to SMF is if somehow they booked Skrillex, because he is my top favorites of all time. Boy did they do that! Dog Blood, Skrillex and Boys Noize project, literally had me jumping for joy and I bought my ticket before even reading the rest of the lineup. Fan favorites, Bonnie X Clyde, was on the lineup last year, but were added again this year. I expect all my rose gang fam to be out there!!
Others announced on the first phase of the lineup are Alison Wonderland, 12th Planet, Getter, Gammer, Rusko (F**k Cancer), and Kaskade with a beautiful sunset set! As stated earlier, last year was basically all bass music. Many fans complained and Disco Donnie listened. When phase one was announced, DDP promised us sunsetters that we would not be disappointed by phase two and DDP delivered on that promise.
“The phase 2 Sunset Music Festival lineup was developed to represent the fan’s interests and tastes. We think it’s a great lineup at a fair price and we’re excited to see everyone in Tampa on Memorial Day weekend.”- Disco Donnie
Tampa’s very own Blunts and Blondes was added on the second phase, blessing us with his wubs, dubs and blunts. I absolutely love seeing GG Magree and Holly taking over the electronic music industry; they both are a must see! Illenium, Tchami, and 4B are some others added on. You can catch Zeds Dead on their deadbeats stage completely slaying it!
