Sunset Music Festival has become the staple in its hometown of Tampa, Florida at Raymond James Stadium. What started as a single day event grew to a two-day fest by its third year and now Disco Donnie Presents and Sunset Events, purveyors of the festival in the Sunshine-State, are announcing an unprecedented lineup-up for their 7th consecutive year.
Sunset Music Festival returns under the Floridan sun for an electric Memorial Day Weekend on May 26 & May 27. Pushing boundaries, this years’ line-up represents the many facets of the festival and its inclusive and innovative spirit, adding R&B and Hip-Hop talent to the best of the best in dance music.
This year’s Sunset Music Festival lineup includes a lot of firsts to make the lineup our biggest yet — four top tier headliners, new genres like hip hop, a focus on female artists, back to back sets, stage takeovers by All My Friends and Brownies & Lemonade, plus some new surprises in store in coming weeks. – Disco Donnie
Rising phenomenons REZZ and ILLENIUM join MARSHMELLO and EXCISION as headliners for the two day fest. In the past year, Rezz, often reffered as “Queen of the Dark Techno Scene” and a mau5trap protegee, has been selling-out shows worldwide and her debut LP “Mass Manipulation” was recently named ‘Best Electronic Album of the Year’ at the Juno Awards. Sunset Music Festival also welcomes in the chart-topping bass virtuoso Nick Miller, aka Illenium. Promising to be two of the most in-demand sets of this year’s festival, Illenium and Rezz were added based on fan requests and feedback.
They will be joined by 40+ internationally celebrated artists including “Goresteps” own BORGORE, DESTRUCTO, ANNA LUNOE, BONNIE X CLYDE, Canadian trap queen DJ CRAY, Australia’s GG MAGREEE, K?D, BALTIMORE’S GYPZ AND ELEPHANTE + many more.
I feel that we really dialed in the operations last year and can’t wait to show all the added toys we put into the festival this year for our family to enjoy. I hope everybody’s ready for an unbelievable festival. From the start in 2006 to now is simply amazing how our fans love for this festival made it grow to what we are all going to experience this memorial weekend. Can’t wait for memorial weekend and for all the memories to be made – John Santoro of Sunset Events
This year at Sunset Music Festival will see the debut of two exclusive stage takeovers, where electro meets hip hop featuring Destructo & Yo Gotti at the All My Friends stage, plus A-Trak and YehMe2 will headline the Brownies & Lemonade stage. The two recently declared “We’re open for festival season” and they’ll be bringing their impressive energy to the party.
In their 7th year and running, DDP and Sunset Events have hosted international names such as David Guetta, Steve Aoki, Markus Schulz, Knife Party, Carnage, Krewella, and Ferry Corsten. Last year Tampa, FL was shined by headliners Major Lazer, Above & Beyond, RL Grime, and Zeds Dead.
