MASSV, the two-day outdoor mega-shindig that debuted in Sun Valley last summer, recently announced the full lineup for its sophomore outing, which will go down Thursday, July 4-Saturday, July 6, in Sun Valley. And it's a doozy.
Joining headliners Krewella and Gramatik is a rogue's gallery of other acts, including big names like Grieves and Chali 2na of Jurassic 5, as well as locals like Lerk; frequent Boise visitors Shook Twins, out of Portland, Ore.; and up-and-comers like Minnesota.
Though it's heavy on the electronic dance music, co-booker Henry Rennar of Reef says MASSV is not a strictly EDM festival.
"Picking any sort of genre, you're giving a small window of life to your festival," Rennar said. "Our goal is to bring things to Idaho that you wouldn't normally get to see without driving 10 hours.”
The full lineup includes:
Chali 2na + House of Vibe
People Under The Stairs
Wick-it The Instigator
Doc Rock & DJ Alien
The festival will be hosted by Chali 2na and Raashan Ahmad, and will also include dance and performance art pieces from Remote Kontrol, KaZum, A-Wol, MASSV BoomBot, ELEMent, Celestial Dance and Jake Peterson. There should also be a butt-ton of lasers and afterparties.
Tickets for the festival are now on sale here. A full weekend pass including camping is $79.99.
