Trance duo Tritonal also headlining three-day live-streamed event
The lineup for RISE Digital Music Festival, a three-day (Feb. 12-14) live-streaming event featuring EDM performances from around the world, was announced today.
Hosted by Mixify.com, RISE will feature sets by previously announced headliner R3HAB, electro-ravers Knife Party, and trance kings Tritonal, along with other fan favorites like Arty, Deniz Koyu, and Carnage. Thievery Corporation's Rob Garza, known for downtempo world music, will even turn in a set. The full artist list is below.
In addition to enjoying 30 hours of music, fans can live-chat with the DJs and other listeners on Mixify's social platform.
RISE presenting partners include Big Beat Records (many of its artists are featured in the lineup), and SFX-owned promotion company Disco Donnie Presents.
"We liked the idea of developing a digital music festival with Mixify, because it offers us a way to identify new fans and connect with them in between events," says Disco Donnie CEO Donnie Estopinal in a release. "The goal is to create new experiences for the fans and develop their connection with our artists."
Fans can RSVP for the free party here.
