It’s that time of year again, EDM and jam fans travel the country in search of the hottest festivals and performances by their favorite artists. If you’re like me, some of my best experiences have been at intimate festivals where artists and fans can really co-mingle.
My love for music festivals was uncovered by the jam scene and later the experimental bass scene at a festival not far from this one. August 25 through August 27, the tiny city of Greenfield, MA, will host one of Maine’s festivals, The Homie Collective Campout. This three-day music and arts gathering will be hosted at the Franklin County Fairgrounds and features performances from some legendary acts in the bass and jam community, including Papadosio, Strange Machines, Yheti, Jason Leech, Josh Teed, and Sunsquabi.
We’ve made sure to compile a list of acts that you absolutely DO NOT want to miss!
The Colorado jamtronica trio, and the guest on episode four of HIHF’s Good Listeners Podcast, Sunsquabi, have been turning heads in the jam and electronic music scene for quite some time now. Unveiling spectacularly impressive performances at some of the biggest venues and festivals across the US, these guys are the real deal. Every show is an immersive experience that astonishes fans with a stunning level of accuracy and synchronicity between the members communicating with each other through their instruments and their sounds. You can listen to their interview on the HIHF podcast to learn more about them.
Check out one of their latest performances at the iconic Ogden Theater in Denver, CO.

This young producer brings an exceptional level of elegance to his music production. Creating lush soundscapes of deep bass and downtempo beats, his style is reminiscent of CharlestheFirst. Some highly notable releases are his collab with Molokai, “Timelapse” and his four-track collaborative EP, Divergence.
Chmura is also set to accompany Clozee on several dates of her upcoming MICROWORLDS tour!

Moon Hooch’s music is characterized by their use of unconventional instruments, including two saxophones and a drum set. Often incorporating foreign objects like traffic cones into their performances is just one of the many things that set this Brooklyn-based trio apart from the rest. Their sound is truly one-of-a-kind and beautifully fuses elements of jazz, rock, and EDM.

South Shore-based DJ, producer, and audio engineer, Symbiosa, has been honing his sound for the past ten years. We first caught this talented artist at Winter Wake Up and instantly became life-long fans. He brings an eclectic style to his sets that make him a must-see performance at festivals and venues alike. He started out producing at the height of the trap bass era and his style has progressed into a deeper and groovier, out-of-this world sound, finding himself expanding more into dubstep and a wider range of tempo.
Keep an eye out for this talented producer, he has some spicy releases coming up including a brand-new album for fans of all things space bass destined to take you on an extraterrestrial journey!

Glass Arrowhead is a well-respected producer based out of Cambridge, MA. He’s made a name for himself as one of the talented producers of Goop Troop Collective and has performed as support for massive bass names like Josh Teed, Toadface, and Levitation Jones. Glass Arrowhead has an ever-developing sound and is excited to showcase some new tracks with a darker UK influenced style.
