Disco Donnie’s inaugural Ubbi Dubbi Music Festival touched down this weekend in Ft. Worth, Texas with some tornado-like conditions. Such is spring in Texas, but that didn’t stop the festival from making a stellar showing for party-goers in the Southwest region of the US, all of whom made the trek from neighboring states to see the likes of Illenium, Galantis, Chris Lake, and Zeds Dead perform in the primetime spotlight.
For the purposes of this review, we’re choosing to focus on the latter, not just because we’re huge fans of the Toronto-based duo here at Conscious Electronic. Not to overlook or slight any of the other amazing acts who took the stage that weekend, which included a star-studded EDM line-up with the likes of Said The Sky, graves, JOYRYDE, Destructo, Peekaboo, Tchami, and many more.
When Zeds Dead took to their very own Deadbeats branded stage on night one of Ubbi Dubbi, their showing became the stand-out of the weekend. Not only did Zeds Dead play a full range of classics, especially from their Somewhere Else EP, they also managed to steal the entire weekend, even in lieu of their set being cut short 20 minutes by an incoming flash thunderstorm. When all was said and done, only the faithful fans were left standing in the pouring rain, until organizers took to the mics canceling the festival. If nothing else, it’s enough to get anyone excited for the boys’ DEAD ROCKS homecoming in July.
Here are Conscious Electronic‘s top five moments from Zeds Dead’s set at Ubbi Dubbi.
