Moonrise Festival : “An Intense and Satisfying Experience ” | Festival Review
The Moonrise festival held in Baltimore is an event that not many mainstream festival followers have heard of . However, the festival definitely provides a positive vibe that many event fans will love. The festival is not often talked about in conversations with the Tomorrow World and Coachellas, but from what the Fiesta Frog team experienced, this festival can be considered to be a “diamond in the rough”. Simply said, the August 9 – 10 weekend was filled with intense animated electronic performances that lit up the Baltimore sky.
The Fiesta Frog team praised Bassnectar to being the most intense and energizing performance of the Moonrise Festival. Bassnectar’s set totally took control of the festival and flooded the ear drums of the crowd. Bassnecar stayed consistent with what was expected and did not disappoint one bit!
The Adventure Club’s set was affected by the issue of low volume and equipment failure. However, when Yasmine Yousaf of Krewella made a short appearance, the crowd went wild and promptly forgot about any of the experience dampening issues. Wacka Flocka showered his fans with champagne and provided just the right intensity in the Solar Dance tent. Wacka’s intense dread rocking performance was without a doubt a highlight despite his very short 30 minute set. DJ Carnage had the best visuals of any set. The experience was what the Fiesta Frog festival team described as a “trippy mix of trap sounds, smoke, confetti and crazy visuals”.
Water stations and bathrooms were easily accessible creating a safe atmosphere. Misting tents were an extra precaution placed on the grounds to prevent the attendees from getting overheated. This was a great addition that proves that the management wanted to create a positive safe experience for everyone. The bars that scattered around the grounds properly made sure that individuals were not underage with age verification wrist bands.
There were no major incidents at the Moonrise festival and safety was obviously a priority. Additionally, the food was amazing and satisfying! Giant turkey drumsticks were all the rage in the vicinity where food was being served.
Moonrise is definitely a festival any EDM or festival fan should attend who is interested in great performances, safety and an intense musical experience. The Moonrise experience is definitely an experience you should have….”Put your M*therf**kin hands up” ….
