Drive By Truckers || 6:00 – 7:15
Even though they are based in Athens, Georgia, North Alabama still lays claim to the Drive-By Truckers. This band has been pioneering their modern southern rock sound since the late ‘90s. Over the past two decades, Patterson Hood and Mike Cooley have maintained this band’s cult following with a sound that is steeped in rock ‘n’ roll attitude and Southern hospitality. In 2014, Drive-By Truckers gave their fans “English Oceans,” their 10th studio album. Cooley and Hood shared songwriter duties and created 13 songs that serve as testimonies for the modern South.
Future Islands || 3:30-4:45
Future Islands believe in true love, you can tell that because their songs speak through our lives. It’s as if their music has always been with us, soundtracking every great hope, dawning realization and broken promise. Every fond embrace, each leap of faith. Over the last eight years Baltimore’s most quixotic and emotionally involving trio have maintained an admirable level of skill and pace, never slowing down for the corners.
Sylvan Esso || 1:30-2:30
Sylvan Esso is an American indie pop duo from Durham, North Carolina. The duo formed in 2013, Amelia Meath had written a song called “Play It Right” and sung it with her trio Mountain Man. She met Nick Sanborn, an electronic producer working under the name Made of Oak, in passing on a shared bill in a small club somewhere. She asked him to scramble it, to render her work his way. He did. Of all the songs Sanborn had ever recast, this was the first time he felt he’d added to the raw material without subtracting from it, as though, across the unseen wires of online file exchange, he’d found his new collaborator without even looking.
Xavier Rudd & The United Nations || 11:30-12:30
Since the very beginning, Xavier Rudd’s ability to connect with people has been his most powerful gift. The more he has toured the world, the more hearts he has touched and the more of the world he has put back into his music. Now, fronting a band aptly named The United Nations, Xavier Rudd has assembled a lineup of musicians from around the world as a one-people musical force. Making their debut in 2015, Xavier Rudd And The United Nations finds the iconic Australian solo artist in full band mode for the first time in a long and successful career, and introduces new album “Nanna” to Xavier’s diverse and acclaimed discography.
Skrillex || 7:15-9:00
In a cluttered home studio in downtown Los Angeles’ Arts District, mere blocks from where he wrote “Scary Monsters & Nice Sprites,” the song that sold millions of copies and helped instigate one of the largest shifts in modern American music in recent memory, Sonny Moore became Skrillex, one of the most popular EMD acts on the circuit today. He has won six Grammy awards and has worked alongside collaborators including Diplo and Jack Ü. His first studio album “Recess” debuted in 2014.
Damian “Jr. Gong” Marley || 4:45-6:00

A self-proclaimed “spiritual revolutionary,” Damian has worked assiduously to carve his own niche in music history and to add a new perspective to the Marley reggae legacy for the 21st century.
The Mowgli’s || 2:30-3:30
When The Mowgli’s first landed on the scene, their message of positivity and love resonated with audiences everywhere. The group’s 2013 major label debut, “Waiting for the Dawn,” debuted at No. 4 on the Billboard Heatseekers Chart and yielded the hit “San Francisco.” Their interpretation of love became even clearer, and it defines their sophomore outing, “Kids In Love.” This time around, they get into intimate love, personal love, as well as universal love. They’ve found art is the best vehicle to ponder what this really means.
Toro y Moi || 12:30-1:30
Having spent his formative years playing in punk rock bands and studying graphic design at the University of South Carolina, Chazwick Bundick began making bedroom recordings under the name Toro Y Moi in 2001. Those early recordings made up the seeds of his critically acclaimed 2010 debut album “Causers of This,” which was hailed as “a bold introduction to a promising newcomer” by Filter. Bundick went on to record 2011’s highly regarded “Underneath the Pine” and the “Freaking Out EP” before making his move to California in 2012.
BOOM BOOM TENT
Major Lazer || 9:00-10:30
Major Lazer is an impressive electronic dance music project created in part by modern electronic guru Diplo. In addition to its mix of trap and dancehall, Major Lazer’s stage show is truly one of a kind.

Adventure Club || 6:00-7:15
One of the hottest acts in electronic music right now, ADVENTURE CLUB (Christian Srigley and Leighton James) has been a tireless source of banging remixes, uplifting summertime anthems, infectious DJ mixes, and explosive live shows since the duo’s musical trip took off in 2010. At the pace these guys move and with the release of their debut EP “Calling All Heroes” — which hit No. 1 on iTunes Dance Album chart in the U.S. and Canada as well as ranked over 10 HypeM No. 1 hits — there’s no time to stop for a breather.
Talib Kweli || 3:30-4:45
The Brooklyn-based rapper earned his stripes as one of the most lyrically-gifted, socially aware and politically insightful rappers to emerge in the last 20 years. His travels around the globe as one of rap’s most in-demand performers combined with his conversations with political activists and his genre-straddling work with Idle Warship and with Mos Def as Black Star caused Kweli to realize that he was limited in a sense, a prisoner of sorts of his own success as one of the world’s best rappers with something significant to say. Since 2013, he has worked with Nelly, Kendrick Lamar, Birg K.R.I.T. and others.
Beats Antique || 1:30-2:30
Beats Antique’s music incorporates Middle Eastern grooves, Balkan wedding music, flamenco, French Gypsy jazz, hip-hop, dub reggae, and other Easterntonalities, all pulled together with electronica that won’t put off club kids, but will appeal to world music lovers as well.

Skylar Spence || 11:30-12:30
“Saint Pepsi” started in December 2012 as an Ableton exercise, but is now 21-year-old Ryan DeRobertis’ main outlet for songwriting and production. The Long Island-based musician’s first release with Carpark is the “Fiona Coyne” 7-inch, to be released in August, which will be followed by a full-length album in the fall.

ODESZA || 4:45-6:00
In 2012, a striking new voice emerged from the wider surge of electronic music in the U.S. ODESZA’s “Summer’s Gone” stood out from the crowd; it was a collection of songs, not just beats; and its irresistible, startling dreaminess, addictive drums and fathoms-deep bass set it apart from the by-the-numbers brutality of EDM’s also-rans. In an age of manufactured Internet buzz and carefully plotted hype, ODESZA’s story was refreshingly authentic: A brilliant new duo unveiled their music on the Internet, and the world paid attention.
JEFF the Brotherhood || 2:30-3:30
“Wasted On The Dream” is the record, Nashville rockers, the Orrall brothers have been building up to since they first formed JEFF The Brotherhood in 2001. It’s a van-rocking, bong-rattling slab that authentically captures their fiery mixture of ‘70s hard rock, ‘80s punk, ‘90s grunge and indelible pop melodies.
