A Hundred Drums
A Hundred Drums, or Gabrielle Watson, has been a dominant force on the forefront of electronic festival lineups, providing the scene with a versatile mix of dubstep, psytrance, and downtempo. Her drum-based melodies have enchanted fans across the country, as she innovatively weaves deep bass with natural soundscapes.

Jantsen is one of the heaviest hitters in the dubstep world. He’s been tearing up the scene for over a decade and is finally getting the recognition he deserves, landing opening slots for the likes of GRiZ and Ganja White Night, and crushing his own Gutter Till I Die 2022 tour, where he led a pack of rising star producers like Smoakland, Space Wizard, Jon Casey and more. His burley and crisp dubstep sounds are some of the most fun to get down to at a festival, so do not miss his Hulaween performance!
Of The Trees
One of our favorite artists at HIHF, Tyler Coombs AKA Of The Trees, is a true gem in this always-changing experimental bass music scene. His production and sound design are unlike anything you’ve ever heard, creating lustrous soundscapes with his organic style. An Of The Trees set is more than a show; it’s a total mind and body experience. His Memory Palace Records label was just launched and he’s also about to embark on his nationwide Codex Natura tour featuring tons of bass music powerhouses like The Widdler, Jon Casey, and Potions.
Tripp St exploded over the 2020-2021 quarantine. While live shows and festivals were held back because of COVID, tons of collectives took to Twitch for virtual festivals. Tripp St’s mixes and live stream appearances were some of the highlights of that time for many, and word quickly spread about his crunchy, unique stylings.
Even though he had no official releases, across his four uploaded mixes he had 120 IDs under his belt, many of which were getting support from the top names in the industry. He followed that with two breathtaking albums, in Welcome to Tripp St and Different Worlds. This enigmatic sonic innovator has huge things on the horizon, so don’t miss his Suwannee Hulaween 2022 show!
Florida’s own Tape B is definitely a name you need to keep an eye on. His shows are a guaranteed high-energy dance party as he destroys the decks blending new and old-school dubstep. He recently caught the attention of the legends Zeds Dead with his remix of their track “Collapse,” which the duo has been rinsing at performances on their Deadbeats Tour. If you didn’t have the chance to catch him at Imagine Music Festival or Wakaan Music Festival, we highly recommend you take this opportunity to dance your pants off. This rising up-and-comer throws down some straight filth.
This talented producer has been taking the EDM and jam band industry by storm with her unique style of bass meets jamtronica.

With performances at some of the most iconic festivals, including Summer Camp, Lollapalooza, Freaky Deaky, and Lost Lands, this is one set you CAN NOT afford to miss.
