Woogie Weekend | Lineup | Tickets

 

Summer is in full swing and if you’re planning to be in Oak Canyon Park this weekend, you’d be hard pressed to find yourself amidst a bad time. This is one stacked lineup. Below are several artists we definitely recommend you check out over the weekend in between all the activities. Honestly though, don’t miss anyone if you can help it.

 

Friday

DoubtingThomas
Preferring to stay out of the limelight, Doubting Thomas has slowly and surely come of his own with his unique approach to mystic and mellow minimal house sounds.

DoubtingThomas – The Changes

 

Extrawelt
This duo has been going strong for over 10 years; and for good reason. They consistently stay ahead of the electronic music curve in producing a deep and technical sound that never stales.

Stephan Bodzin – Blue Giant (Extrawelt Remix)

 

Mark Farina
The father of downtempo house meets acid goodness Mushroom Jazz. ’nuff said.

Mark Farina – C’mon Playa

 

Saturday
Beacon
This New York outfit melds sleepless city vocals with complex hypnotic elements to great effect. Playing live, they’ll be sure to set you in a most welcome spacey rhythm.

Beacon – Escapements

 

Oceanvs Orientalis
Straight from their mouths: Oceanvs Orientalis blends itself with the archaelogic tunes of mankind’s cumulative musical history and in this very context believes that “everything comes from the east”. Don’t miss out on their orchestral-dance style.

Oceanvs Orientalis vs. Heimat – Gardens of Bablyon

 

Oliver Huntemann
Perfectly seamless. German. Techno.

Oliver Huntemann – Kiez

 

Sunday
Kidnap Kid
Now in the full swing of his career, UK based Kidnap Kid has established himself as a standout in the emotional house scene. His sound takes on aspects of Balearic, Traditional, and Garage all to induce a stellar “get-lost-in-your-head” flow.

Kidnap Kid – Like You Used To

 

Rampue
After missing him at Further Future, we’ve had a Rampue sized hole in our hearts for his distinct minimal tribal techno style.
Once more with visa issues.

Rampue – Adagio for Phoenicopterus

 

Rodriguez Jr.
There’s never not enough room for Minimal Techno. And when it comes from this star producer (live!), there’s no reason to miss out.

Rodriguez Jr. – Capitelle

Event InfoTickets

 

UR Art is the brainchild of Rob Garza (Thievery Corporation), Philipp Jung (M.A.N.D.Y), and John Wander. The Santa Monica based Summer festival series is now in its third year and continues to draw attention to its message of sustainable power, artistic freedom, and community wellness. On top of that, the series features leading musicians from the deeper spectrum of house and techno under the open air of a beach city sun.

 

All of this is hosted inside Bergamot Station, a re-purposed train station now art center. This Sunday (July 3rd) will feature John Tejada, Hoj, Clint Stewart, and WXC (John Wander b2b Luke Cheadle). Come through to celebrate freedom, art, music, and social purpose.

 

John Tejada – Endorphins

Terrence Parker – Alarm the Sound (John Tejada Remix)

Clint Stewart & The Reason Y – Audable Flares

Matt LangeTickets

 

Newest addition to mau5trap, Matt Lange produces techno that is dark, melodic, and eerily satisfying. Upcoming release Ephemera has been pre-touted as a work of pure talent that bridges the gap of deep underground techno and creatively personal experimentation. Expect some awesome blending of underground club styles and ominous inclinations.

 

Daniel Minaya and Ryan Shepherd will be opening the night. Come through for a preview of whats to be in the realm of deeper, darker sounds.

Northern Nights Spotlight brings attention to artists that will be featured at

♦ Northern Nights Music Festival 2015 ♦
Some we love. Some we just discovered. All essential.

▼▼ 2 Days ▼▼

 

Daniel Goldstein, or Lane 8 only seems to get better with time; we always make it a point to support him whenever he comes around SoCal and we’re never disappointed. With his debut album, Rise, dropping the day the fest begins, we can expect him to play a rather emotional set. And judging from the prime vocal features on the album, we’re hoping for some special guest appearances.

 

Catch us among the wave of feelings washing over the forest.

 

Lane 8 – Loving You ft. Lulu James

Lane 8 – Nothing you Can Say ft. Lucy Stone

ODESZA – Bloom (Lane 8 Remix)

We’ve been waiting for Saint WKND to make his way stateside for over a year now. You could imagine our excitement when we saw him with June availability in the US. Since the release of his touching remix of James Vincent McMorrow, we’ve been closely admiring his development. It’s been quite the ride.

 

DJ Trust, Torosbros, and Daniel Minaya will provide support.
