Zebbler is the genius behind EOTO’s Lotus Flower and Shpongletron. His 3D

mapped custom visuals will literally have you melting. Someone is going to

need to mop up the crowd at the main stage.

9. Conspirator

Aron Magner and Marc Brownstein (keyboardist and bassist for The Disco

Biscuits) formed Conspirator back in 2004 and have been pumping out an

effortless fusion of live instrumentation electronic production ever

since. They are a must-catch set for those craving some

electro-rock-jammie goodness.

8. Desert Dwellers

[youtuber youtube=’http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vw-EE3n2uQo&feature=youtu.be’]

Famous for their sunrise sets at Burning Man, Desert Dwellers are the

masters of downtempo dub. Actualy, lets call it DownTemple Dub. Skillfully

blending deep bass, earthy percussion, etheric voices and culture-crossing

instrumentation, Desert Dwellers echo our primitive past all while taking

us on an auditory journey into the future. Catch them on the Wired Stage

Friday night from 12am to 1:30am.

7. Ill-Esha

[youtuber youtube=’http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oCqHo72G8nM&feature=youtu.be’]

Calling her own musical style “weird,” it’s something that crowds have

hooked onto. Sure, she’s one of the best female producers of all time

(represent!!) – but did you know she records her own vocals? And spits a

wicked flow? And you catch watch her do all of this Sunday evening on the

Wired stage at 5:45pm?

6. Govinda

The man spins Buddha Bass so sexy that you’ll experience multiple

eargasms. And then he plays Violin on top of it all. It’s rather exotic.

5. Beats Antique

[youtuber youtube=’http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YI8yvTXNNeU&feature=youtu.be’]

Beats Antique has one of the most creative live shows in the music

industry. Their shows are fascinatingly dreamlike – filled with intricate

stage production, belly dancing, and crowdsurfing zebras.

4. Random Rab

Another ambient artist famous for his sunrise sets. When you look around

the crowd, you’ll never see as much pure happiness as you will at a Rab

set. Smiles. Smiles everywhere. His live vocals and beautiful lyrics are

completely entrancing.

3. Kaminanda

[youtuber youtube=’http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dH4_rYwpb9E&feature=youtu.be’]

There is just positive energy seeping out of this man’s pores. He is

simply incredible. Don’t miss this one if you want some ass-wiggling

electronic dancey beats sprinkled throughout trippy tantric pay-hop.

2. Tipper

[youtuber youtube=’http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LH2ug5FTcv0&feature=youtu.be’]

This guy creates some of the most intricate, diverse soundscapes known to

man. His tunes are constantly morphing and evolving, taking the crowd on a

wild ride through musical genres. His productions are so sophisticated

with such great attention to detail that he makes electronic music seem

like chemistry.

1. Shpongle

[youtuber youtube=’http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WZUfrMNqCQM&feature=youtu.be’]

There is NO excuse to miss Shpongle’s DJ set this weekend. None. I don’t

care if you’ve got Miss America splayed naked in your tent feeding you

bacon – you need to get your shit together, get up, and see Shpongle.

Word’s can’t even explain their greatness – just listen to this album.
