Raves are back. They're just not called raves anymore. Just take the just-announced Spectrum Festival, which promises a "bevy of live bands, DJs, performance artists and elaborate décor transforming the Regency Center into a multi-stage, multi-environment kaleidoscope of entertainment." Hmm. Kaleidoscope? Yup, sounds ravey, all right. Now, where's those parachute pants and glow-sticks?
The two-night event, to be held June 26 and 27, will encompass all three floors of the venue and features headliners Phoenix, Major Lazer, and LTJ Bukem, plus a supporting cast including DJ Vadim, Richie Panic, Disco Shawn, Kuze & MC Child, Motion Potion, Antennae, Nikola Baytala, Discofari, Diego's Umbrella, Gooferman, and many more. We're especially pleased to see so many local acts on the bill. Early-bird tix are $27.50-$60 and are available here, here, and here. You can also scoop hard tix (and save on service fees) at Skills DJ Workshop, Aquarius Records, or the Warfield Box Office.
