Whispers of details on the festival being thrown by the powerhouse Wakaan family have been circulating in the bass music world for quite some time. Label godfather Liquid Stranger has been long assembling a legion of talent for a variety of releases, and fans have been patiently waiting for a lineup since the initial festival announcement was made some months ago.
Now, that dream is well on its way to being fully materialized. Coming the first weekend in October, the inaugural Wakaan Fest will make its way to Mulberry Mountain, Arkansas. It’s no surprise that the lineup is a star-studded that reads more like a “Who’s Who” in rising left-field bass music. Liquid Stranger himself will play two sets, as well as featuring sets from other bass music pioneers like Rusko, Koan Sound, and Jantsen. Rising stars like Chee, Subtronics, and Peekaboo will also be bringing their unique sounds to the festival. Check out the full lineup below!
