Need some Dubstep 101?

“Dubstep is a genre of electronic dance music that originated in South London, England,” according to Wikipedia. And describes dubstep’s overall sound as “tightly coiled productions with overwhelming bass lines and reverberant drum patterns, clipped samples, and occasional vocals.”

Listen for some of those sounds with the fest’s headliners Astronomar and Pickster One.

“Without exaggeration, Astronomar is one of the most exciting new producers out there. There’s an intangible uniqueness to everything he does, and a strong hip-hop influence which give his tracks a hardcore, but incredibly fun vibe,” says DJ/producer Astronomar on his Facebook page.

Astronomar’s first release, “Had To Move On,” was on Neoteric’s “Turned On: Vol. 2” last summer.

As for Pickster One, the “Arizona-based DJ and music producer ... has been making waves on the Tempe and Phoenix scene since his arrival in 1998,” according to

“Pickster One takes influences from a broad scope of musical genres including hip-hop, electro, dubstep, and countless other experimental, electronic genres to form a new-school, high-energy set that rocks the party and keeps the dance floor packed,” the website says.

Admission to the fest is $13 for ages 18–20 and $10 for ages 21 and older.
