The Baltimore-based Starscape Festival has announced its preliminary list of artists for the annual all-night dance party, set for June 7th. As they did last year, the Disco Biscuits will be headlining the festival.
In my opinion, one of the highlights of this year’s festival is BioDiesel. The band is comprised of human drum machine, Johnny Rabb, and Brother’s Past bassist, Clay Parnell, as well as a rotating cast of characters on keyboards and synths (often Aaron Magner of the Disco Biscuits). Rabb and Parnell are self-described as “the most lethal rhythm section ever.” These guys will blow your mind, promised. It’s also good to see Chicago natives Future Rock and Orchard Lounge in the mix as they definitely fill out the bill nicely.
Tickets go on sale March 25 and will cost you $39.50 if you get them early, $60 if you get them late, or $125 if you think you’re a VIP. Check below for the remaining line-up…
