To celebrate its third annual edition, Sol Fest will feature multiple stages but no overlapping sets, allowing attendees to catch every single performance without potential scheduling conflicts.

Sol Fest’s robust lineup showcases the festival’s continued commitment to curating dynamic musical experiences, helmed by a plethora of expertly curated back-to-back performances.


The festival will host the first-ever b2b set from dubstep star Dirt Monkey and Bay Area bass duo Smoakland, as well as debut US joint performances from drum n’ bass pioneer Netsky and Australian selector Luude; experimental bass producer IMANU and California-based beatmaker Machinedrum; and Perth-based producer Skeler and trap virtuoso Deadcrow.


On top of his two solo performances, London-based grime MC and record producer Flowdan will also make special appearances during Claude VonStroke’s bass alias Barclay Crenshaw’s set, as well as Peekaboo’s rip-roaring set.



In addition to Sol Fest’s four stacked days of music programming, the festival will also be throwing a Welcome Party at the Waterpark pre-party on Wednesday for anyone who purchases a Wednesday early arrival pass.


The soiree will be hosted by local bass label/collective Wubaholics, and will feature a b2b performance from ALLEYCVT alongside a yet-to-be-revealed artist, plus captivating sets by Superfuture, STVSH, Meduso, OkayJake, Lumasi, and Raaket.


Beyond LSDREAM’s headlining performance, the innovative artist will also showcase a special Lightcode set: an immersive sonic healing experience featuring original music, guided meditations, and sound baths. 



Sol Fest welcomes attendees to get wet and wild at the daily waterpark parties, which will be hosted by acts like singer-songwriter-multi-instrumentalist Two Feet (Thursday), Canadian glitch-hop duo The Funk Hunters/CloZee’s Odyzey imprint (Friday), Dr. Fresch’s House Call Records (Saturday), and Smoakland (Sunday). 


Standout acts from the festival’s Phase 1 lineup include; genre-blending keyboard/drummer duo Break Science, Atlanta electro-soul artist Daily Bread, bass experimentalist Eprom, boundary-pushing producer/guitarist Emancipator, Denver-based electro-soul artist Manic Focus, heady bass master Opiuo, British producer/singer-songwriter Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs (DJ Set), sound design-oriented bass producer Yheti, and joyful bass queen Maddy O’Neal

The venue boasts six water slides, beachfront relaxation, and opportunities for activities like cave diving and tubing, canoeing, kayaking, and paddle boarding.

The magic of Sol Fest is rounded out by Sol Sunday: the festival’s annual memorial segment that pays homage to their dear friend Quentin “Sol” Rupp, a passionate festival-goer who passed away at the age of 26. Sol Sundayincludes, amongst other things, a special interactive sun lantern effigy burn and slideshow, where attendees can honor those in their own lives who have passed. The spirit of Sol Sunday reflects the ethos that Sol Fest has made its identity: an inclusive, close-knit event that from top to bottom represents community, equality, and diversity - including for women and LGBTQ rights. 



Sol Fest will also feature live and digital art installations, murals, hologram water screen shows, therapeutic workshops such as breathwork, yoga, and sound healing, as well as other daytime activities and games such as Frick Frack Blackjack, Sonic Portal, disc golf, tie-dying, and body marbling - a list that further highlights the festival’s dedication to emotional and social wellness. Additionally, there will be 40+ food, merch, and craft vendors onsite.
