Euphoria Phase 1 2016

Following on the heels of last month’s announcement that the genre-bending artist Bassnectar would be the first headliner of Euphoria, the four-day music and camping festival is releasing the next round of performers for its 2016 event.  Returning to Carson Creek Ranch in Austin, Texas on April 7th through 10th, Euphoria’s fifth anniversary performer lineup promises to be the best yet and features a mix of heavyweights, including:

Dillon Francis: Know as much for his collaborations with Diplo, Skrillex, A-Trak and Bro Safari, as he is for the moombahton genre that brought him to fame five short years ago, Dillon Francis is definitely the artist to watch. His current release, This Mixtape Is Fire, is a refreshing re-introduction to moombah’s Latin-tinged rhythms.

STS9:  Affectionately know to fans simply as “Tribe”, this tight knit group of electronic rock instrumentalists that had a meteoric rise to fame, is now 17 years deep into their illustrious career. Perfecting their self-described “post-rock dance music” through live rock instrumentation on one of their many tours, STS9 is one of the top-grossing live acts globally and will be returning once again to Euphoria.

GRiZ: A one-man band of sorts, GRiZ is an American DJ know for playing the saxophone along with producing funk, electro-soul and self-described future funk. As one of the founders of All Good Records, GRiZ is helping to bring new sounds to the forefront of fans musical conscious. All his albums can be found for free on his website.

Juicy J:  As one of the founding members of Three 6 Mafia, Juicy J has been at the forefront of American hip hop, since the Golden Age of the genre. Juicy also marks Euphoria’s first real foray into hip hop, in an effort to introduce fans to a wider array of genres that influence the festival’s EDM roots.

Tycho:   Continuing to build momentum over recent years, Tycho’s ambient soundscapes have been likened to DJ Shadow, Washed Out and Boards of Canada. Bathed in 1970s nostalgia, Tycho’s studio work translates amazingly well with the live backing band that will be bringing its skills to Euphoria this April.

Also included in Euphoria’s fifth anniversary performer lineup: Lettuce; Lil Dicky; Nahko & Medicine for the People; The Polish Ambassador; Com Truise; Goldfish; Loudpvck; Branchez; The Motet; Bass Physics; Big Wild; Daily Bread; Digital Tape Machine; Future Rock; G Jones; Jai Wolf; Lance Herbstrong; Mashd N Kutcher; Timmy Trumpet; Skydyed; Space Jesus; SNBRN; Stafford; Twiddle and Wave Racer. The lineup will continue to grow as we enter 2016 and will be the most expansive to date.
