Phosphene’s Outside in Equinox Must Sees

The inaugural Outside in Equinox Festival is coming up on September 21st to 24th, and promises a camping experience with, “exploration, discovery, & celebration of technology and the evolving human experience.” Taking place at Live Oak Campground near Santa Barbara, the festival has a great lineup along with daily workshops and lectures, with topics ranging from blockchain technology to ET Disclosure. These are a few artists I’m most excited to check out!

Dr. Fresch

I had the pleasure of spending some time with Dr. Fresch at Burning Man, and not only is he one of the nicest guys ever, he’s also a fantastic DJ with the ability to play a wide range of genres. His set at Burning Man was one of my favorites, and I can’t wait to see him play.

Justin Jay

Another amazing DJ I’ve had the pleasure of hanging out with, Justin Jay is a USC alumni who’s been blowing up in the house music scene. He has several tracks out with Dirtybird, and also has his own recording label Fantastic Voyage. He’s a festival favorite for a reason- don’t miss his set.

Random Rab

Please festival gods, let there be a Random Rab sunrise set. His beautiful mix of acoustic and electronic music is good for the soul. Doesn’t hurt that Apparently is one of my favorite songs, too.

Don Parmesan 

Don Parmesan has established himself of one of the best up-and-coming DJs out of Santa Barbara. He’s an EOS regular and can curate a vibe like no other. He’s also hosting a theme camp “Disconauts”- be sure to check it out. 

Burko and Lost Marbles

Two other up-and-coming DJs who’s sets I’ll definitely be at are Burko and Lost Marbles. I’ve seen Burko play a few times and have always been impressed by his music selection, ranging from tech house and techno, to Brazilian house and experimental bass. Lost Marbles is a group consisting of the DJs Vinny, BüF, and Don Parmesan who I mentioned earlier. They’ll be throwing down a tech house set that’ll guarantee to get your blood pumping. And who doesn’t love a B2B?

Workshops and Lectures

Although the haven’t released the workshops and lecture lineup, I’d make a point to check out at least one session. These events are a huge part of the experience, and adds a different dimension to the classic party-only-music-festival that you don’t always see.
