Trinumeral Music and Arts Festival
This year's festival features some of the hottest electronic music acts in the country, as well as a strong line up of regional bands, DJs, musicians, sculptors, visual artists and more. Topping the bill for the weekend are the San Francisco based producer collective, The Glitch Mob, and the wildly popular live breakbeat producer, Pretty Lights. The Glitch Mob, which is the brainchild of west coast producers, Ooah, edIT, & Boreta, all noted fixtures in the West Coast underground scene, have made a name for themselves with their relentless sonic assault on the dance floor, complete with ferocious drums, catastrophic sub bass, and otherworldly sounds. This summer has seen the act grow in to one of the top touring draws, and they just finished a full tour sharing the bill with the legendary techno pioneers the Prodigy, as well as stealing the show at this year's Rothbury Festival with their dynamic late night set.
Pretty Lights is the musical vision of the versatile Colorado-based producer Derek Vincent Smith. Fresh off one of the most talked about sets at Bonnaroo, Pretty Lights has been touring constantly in support of their debut album, "Filling Up the City Skies." The album has been downloaded over 30,000 times, helping Pretty LIghts become a household name in the electronic music genre. But it is in the live setting where the music truly shines. In just a few short years, Pretty Lights has gone from an unknown act to headlining some of the biggest festivals in the country and selling out clubs in almost every city on their tour.
Rounding out the bill is the prolific and world renown RJD2, the magnetic instrumental quintet, and local favorites, Toubab Krewe, as well as the 60's avante garde jazz legends, the Sun Ra Arkestra, Future Rock, Boombox, Orchard Lounge, Pnuma Trio, Gift of Gab (of Blackalicious), Break Science featuring Adam Deitch, and the UK funk outfit New Mastersounds, to name a short few. The full line-up is listed below and more artists will announced soon.
