5 Must-See Artists at Moonrise Festival

July 18, 2016 -

Milli Encarnacion

Crowd favorites Bassnectar, The Chainsmokers, Tiesto, and Zedd are set to headline next month's Moonrise Festival, but its line-up is overflowing with more talent that deserves just as much recognition. Between headbanging to Jauz and throwing your trap arms for NGHTMRE, here are five artists you must check out!

Moonrise Festival takes place August 6-7 at Pimlico Race Course in Baltimore, Maryland. Tickets are going fast; purchase yours here.

Justin Jay

Just because he's the youngest member of the Dirtybird family doesn't mean his music is subpar to his cohorts'. Justin Jay has been dubbed a "future star" by some of the scene's most tenured artists, including Pete Tong. Recently, Jay released Fantastic Voyage, an album overflowing with serene deep house tunes that were made for summer, under Soul Clap Records. With Moonrise Festival being just one stop out of many in the DJ's busy schedule, Jay is on a roll.

Lee Foss

Lee Foss is more than just another house DJ - he's an unstoppable force. He's one-fourth of the supergroup Hot Natured and one-half of the ownership of the record label, Hot Creations. Simultaneously a musical innovator and dance music diplomat, Foss has utilized his trend-setting talents and expertise to foster a growing movement of artists through Hot Creations - which is fittingly co-owned by Jamie Jones.

Sam Gellaitry

At just eighteen years old, Sam Gellaitry amassed over 100,000 followers by mid-2015, all of whom were undoubtedly enthralled by his future grooves. The Scotsman collaborated with the Soulection imprint for some time before releasing his Escapism EP through XL Recordings in November.


It's an understatement to say that the music of L.A.-raised Jennifer Lee is simply a product of an already thriving beat scene. Rather, Lee helped foster the movement when she linked up with the now-iconic Steven Ellison, better known as Flying Lotus, in the late 2000s. After several beautifully twisted and layered releases on Ellison's Brainfeeder label, and also on Ultra Records, Lee went on to create Young Art Records. She released her Fovere album this past March.

Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs

Orlando Higginbottom classily fuses electro-pop with the familiar sounds of house. With a career that plucked him from the studious grounds of college, and once even placed him in the Congo, Higginbottom has experienced quite a bit. Never one to take himself seriously, he performs in outlandish costumes that match the entertaining value of his stage name. His take on a more fun-centric, no-fucks-given career is faring well as he continues to be a staple in the electronica scene.
