SummerEyes Digital Festival is the newest interactive virtual festival experience hosted by EDM.com and presented by MP3DU Magazine and Unitea Music App. The festival’s phase one line-up turned heads earlier with Chee, Evee, and ill.Gates headlining and powerhouse acts like Mersiv, Justin Jay, Esseks, TRUTH, Shlump, LUZCID, um.., and many more glorious undercard acts.
The two-day event, which is taking place Thursday and Friday, July 2-3, is packed to the brim with exciting rising bass Allstars out of the burgeoning underground movement. With fan favorites like Aplsoz, Super Future, Ravenscoon, Goopsteppa, Mystic Grizzly, UHNK, Chompaa, Easybaked, Black Carl!, Toadface, Space Geisha, Toadface, and Rest In Pierce, there’s just too much amazing bass that it’s almost overwhelming.
Additionally, the festival will feature branded takeovers from Envisioned Arts (VCTRE, FRQ NCY, Goopsteppa, Vinja, Toadface), Lost Dogz (Abelation, EAZYBAKED), Producer Dojo (ill.Gates, UHNK, Aplsoz) and the Spicybois (Cnopes, Bagsss, MeSo).
Leading the ladies on day one is A Hundred Drums, who was supposed to open at Bassnectar’s since-canceled Freestyles Sessions. She’s joined by fellow female acts Jen Ese, T3MPR, ZiA, and Boiish. Freshly graduated, teenage sensation Abelation leads an exciting list of newcomers in the bass scene, including fellow young acts VCTRE, PlayTime, Dubyes, and Bagsss.
Several artists on the bill will be making their streaming debuts as well. Vinja, whose live set features turntablism and scratching, will be making his first online appearance, as will highly-touted anonymous act Tripp St. His SummerEyes performance will be his career debut.
The festival will go down on Unitea’s experiential app platform, which will offer up rewards ranging from merch, unreleased music, and Zoom calls with your favorite artist. Unitea users are rewarded with social currency, called “Karma,” which they can then cash in for free prizes.
Throughout the two-day live stream, will be promoting Black Lives Matter, Campaign Zero, and Until Freedom, an organization that empowers victims of racial injustice to “build, create, organize & fight.” Linked donations will be available throughout the stream itself.
