With Your Friends Fest: Skrillex, Pretty Lights, Santigold and more in Nashville
The two juggernauts of the EDM universe Pretty Lights and Skrillex, have put their noggins together to put together one of the most wonderfully absurd and compelling line-ups of the festival season (and easily the best promo poster, can’t compete with that). The “With Your Friends Festival” is primed to feature each producer/DJ in a headliner slot with direct support from rap legend Nas, who will be performing with a nine-piece band, and the globally-inspired girl-pop of Santigold. 12th Planet, Dillon Francis, Michel Menert, and TOKiMONSTA flesh out the bill. More info is surely to follow next week as the festival launches its official, full-fledged website.
Having spent 6 years as a Nashville resident myself, I can attest that this festival’s site is indeed incredible, scenic and the October weather on the waterfront of downtown Nashville should make for good vibes, scenery and a comfortable setting. Artists will perform in front of the scenic river and skyline, and a private event will ensue post-festival at an undisclosed terrestrial location.
