6 Must See Artists You May Not Have Heard Of

While it’s great to see musical acts I already know and love, my favorite part of the festival experience is stumbling into a set from an undiscovered artist and falling head over heels. There’s something so magical about finding music this way, fueled by the energy of the crowd and large sound system. We know most of you haven’t heard of every act on our lineup so here’s some pointers of where to look for some gems you may not be aware of in our lineup, and check out our playlist below to find some more! Comment below to tell us your favorite artists who may need a little special attention!

Grove Stage

Hyroglifics (Saturday 10PM)

Bringing some forward-thinking Drum and Bass to the lineup, Hyroglifics doesn’t like to be confined to a specific sound. His tracks are hypnotic and experimental _____. Lovers of heavy fast beats______, bass heavy music will not be dissapointed. Collaborated with Sam Binga and Halogenics (of Ivy Lab)

Manatee Commune (Friday 8:30PM)

Washington native Grant Eadie combines live instrumentation from several instruments including guitar, viola, wind chimes and drums with looping and electronic production. The result is a dreamy downtempo electronica reminiscent of Slow Magic (who he has played support for on tour).

Knoll Stage

Butterscotch (7PM Saturday)

Butterscotch’s roots grow from underground beatbox battles (she was the first female World Beatboxing Champion in 2005). From there, she expanded her sound to include soulful singing and acoustic guitar, the result is an incredibly rich sounding one woman band. With a positive message that uplifts those struggling in life ____

High Step Society (7PM Friday)

High Step Society is a six-piece band that incorporates live jazzy electro swing, sultry vocals and electronic beats. A multi-talented group, members are both skilled jazz musicians as well as electronic music producers. Dancy fun that’s sure to get you groovin’.

Saucy Spa

Acacia Beats (10PM Saturday)

This local collective of tastemakers has played Enchanted nearly every year and yet manage to play one of the funnest sets every time! Concocting a blend of Trap, Halftime, and Future Beats

Dubcoling (5PM Sunday)

A master of deep squishy bass and talented scratcher, Dubcoling’s productions are some serious ear candy, perfect for the Funkion-One sound system at the Spa Stage!

 

Zac Krohn

Born and raised in the Northern Bay Area, Zac started out blogging as a founding member of West Coast based Booms and Claps. His first festival, Earthdance, planted the seeds for an ever growing passion for all the weird sounding music and open heart connections that can be discovered at these gatherings. Can often be found dancing around with a camera capturing all the excitement of festival culture.
