The Euphoria Team just released the lineup for Finding Euphoria, an electronic music festival on May 12 at Carson Creek Ranch, featuring Gramatik, Hippie Sabotage, G Jones, and k?d, plus Medasin, ATLiens, Asadi, and many Euphoria alumni artists, as well as special guests Boogie T and SQUNTO at the Friday Camping Pre-Party. The scaled-back music festival concept is produced by the team behind Euphoria and combines a multi-stage, one-day music and camping festival with an ongoing series of music and community events throughout clubs and outdoor venues in Austin.
While Euphoria has gone smaller this year, it is sure not to be lighter. The bass-heavy lineup promises a great party on May 12, with a curated selection of 20+ artists:
— Gramatik’s chopped up blues, soul and jazz set to unique basslines create a contagious energy. His samples are unexpected, and his live keys and guitar are the cherry on top. Gramatik’s music is unlike any other, which is exactly what we want to celebrate at Finding Euphoria.
— Hippie Sabotage brings a perfect blend of energetic hip-hop and emotional electronic beats to the Finding Euphoria scene, able to move and bond with a crowd, commanding connection with the music.
— G Jones never fails to provide mind-warping experiences. His sound surrounds a crowd as one, just the kind of unique artistic and communal experience Finding Euphoria seeks to cultivate. As a fan favorite, G Jones joined us at Carson Creek in 2015 and 2016 as well.
— k?d has an astounding way of keeping even his heaviest tracks upbeat. They’re fast, dynamic and bursting with unique instrumentation. Awaiting an electric experience this spring, Euphoria welcomes k?d to the 2018 family.
— Medasin’s sound is unmistakably his own, as is his place in the Euphoria family. In 2016, Medasin contributed an original Road to Euphoria mix leading up to the festival, and he’s made us dance with his fresh sound each year since.
— Boogie T brought his New Orleans dubstep to a Finding Euphoria Series show in February, and the combination of dub and groove perfectly encapsulated the Finding Euphoria spirit.
— ATLiens’ bass has a unique futuristic vibe that stands out in a sea of trap. Their 2018 release Invasion features dark, distorted vocals and unexpected turns, creating an energy that will keep Euphoria moving into the night.
— SQUNTO took the stage alongside Boogie T this February at Empire in Austin, and the heavy grating synth and pounding bass made it an unforgettable act, but his speaking out against harmful drug culture and living in harmony with the earth makes him special to Euphoria.
— Asadi had the Dragonfly Stage enraptured at Euphoria 2017, from sitting down with his sound pad and dropping beats on Kanye, to filling the riverside space with his original Persian trap tracks.
— Many other Euphoria alumni are headed back to Finding Euphoria this May, including Slice Gang, Brede, Zander, Dirty Mouth (of Blunt Force) and Psymbionic.
Finding Euphoria festival will be held May 12, with camping May 11-13.
