North America’s first and only touring electronic music festival experience, IDENTITY, will return this summer, visiting major amphitheaters in fifteen cities throughout July and August. IDENTITY will kick-off in the afternoon, running through into the night, and will be centered on each venue’s central amphitheater stage. A full list of cities and dates are listed below – tour stops include Boston, Atlanta, Miami, Dallas, San Francisco, San Diego, New Jersey, New York and more.
A $25 All-In early-bird ticket special will be available for a limited time when tickets go on-sale April 24, 2012. IDENTITY’s line-up features the most cutting-edge acts in EDM presenting them in some of America’s most storied venues, arenas that were long reserved for rock bands. Grab your tickets here!
Sweden’s Eric Prydz’s legendary Ibiza residencies, European festival smashes and chart-topping hits undoubtedly served as inspiration for his friends and collaborators, Swedish House Mafia. Prydz, despite huge demand, hasn’t toured the US since 2007 due to a fear of flying, but with a new album ‘Eric Prydz Presents Pryda’ (5/22/12) and a unique IDENTITY live show, this was one road trip Prydz couldn’t miss.
Other acts tapped for IDENTITY include EDM heavyweights Nero, Wolfgang Gartner, Hardwell and some of the most exciting names in bass music including Showtek, Excision and Noisia.
