This summer will mark the debut of IDENTITY, the first-ever touring electronic ONLY music festival that will visit major outdoor amphitheatres throughout North America in August and September and give fans the full electronic music experience. http://IDFEST.jonesbeach.com Approximately 20 shows are on tap for this exciting new traveling extravaganza with top-tier artists performing on multiple stages starting in the afternoon and into the night.
The line-up for IDENTITY—which is set to further galvanize the electronic music explosion—is highlighted by the hottest cutting-edge artists of the genre including Kaskade, Pretty Lights, Rusko, Avicii, Steve Aoki, Disco Biscuits, DJ Shadow, Skrillex, Pete Tong, Chuckie, Booka Shade, Modeselektor, the Crystal Method, Nero and many more.
As electronic music continues its domination of a rave new world -- with dubstep now heard on shopping mall PA systems and house music a common soundtrack for commercials -- it comes as little surprise that a traveling one-day festival would plot a path across North America's summer sheds including the Jones Beach Amphitheater, featuring a cornucopia of electronic heavy hitters. And, thus, along comes IDentity -- an itinerant dance party and social gathering not unlike the original vision behind Lollapalooza or H.O.R.D.E. -- except, of course, that IDentity will be defined and driven almost exclusively by electronic music. Headlined by Kaskade, additional artists on the tour include Pretty Lights, Rusko, Steve Aoki, DJ Shadow, Modeselektor, Etienne De Crecy, Crystal Method, Nero, Nervo, Skrillex and lots more, on multiple stages.
