Zeds Dead, Liquid Stranger, Mersiv, More to Headline Sol Fest 2023
Mija, Infected Mushroom, Blossom, INZO and more round out a huge lineup for the festival's second edition, which is looking massive.
Pulling in some of the most acclaimed names from across the bass music spectrum, Sol Fest is gearing up for a huge 2023 edition.
The music and arts festival, which made its debut in May of last year, takes its name from Quentin “Sol” Rupp, an avid festival-goer and dear friend of its two co-founders who passed away in a tragic car accident at 26 years old. With Rupp's family actively involved, Sol Fest is not only a celebration of music, but also a sanctuary for others to connect, make lifelong friends and create unforgettable memories to aid in healing from loss and current hardships they may face. Each year thus features a special memorial component of the festival.
This year’s edition of Sol Fest will feature three stages, including a custom mainstage with PK Trinity Sound, a late-night stage and a pool party stage where a bevy of exciting tastemakers will host daily takeovers.
Sol Fest is landing at Bama Slam Waterpark & Campground in New Brockton, Alabama from May 5-7 and bringing along a massive lineup. The festival will be headlined by Liquid Stranger, Zeds Dead and Mersiv, who will be joined by the likes of Champagne Drip, LUZCID, Infected Mushroom, LYNY, Ravenscoon and many more bass heavy-hitters.
The pool parties at Sol Fest are a surefire highlight. EDM.com Class of 2023 artist and house music star Blossom is switching things up with a rare drum & bass set on the festival's first day, as will the virtuosic Mija. Meanwhile, Saturday will be all about Wave music with some of the genre’s most prominent artists taking the decks, including Skeler, barnacle boi and Brothel.
On top of the star-studded lineup, the extra activities and features of the festival are also noteworthy. Sol Fest features daily spiritual workshops, atmospheric lighting, memorial features, live and digital art, flow performers, a mural maze, a custom 100-foot wide holographic water screen show, projection mapping, projection domes, illuminating shade canopies, art gallery, live glass blowing, mural pyramids, Black Sheep Circus and much more. The festival also boasts a wide selection of vendors and interactive installations, such as Sonic Portal and Frick Frack Blackjack.
