Live Nation’s Skullcandy Identity Festival kicked off its American tour on August 11, which has electronica lovers nationwide all hyped up. With three stages and numerous acts, it promises to be a rowdy dance party. It might be overwhelming for some, but it will definitely be a great end to your summer (which ever date you make it to).
The festival is hitting North Carolina on Tuesday, August 16, and Charlotte’s Verizon Wireless Ampitheatre is set for an amazing lineup! The quality and amount of artists booked for the show has me incredibly excited about an adventure to the Queen City. I’m most excited about Rusko, Nero, and Steve Aoki, but the rest of it will be great as well. Datsik, Chuckie, and DJ Shadow are also at the top of my to-do list.
As far as safety & fun goes:
- STAY HYDRATED!
- Take a map & event lineup
- Be open to new music
- Only take permitted items (see official site for details)
