As Sunset Music Festival enters its 11th year, the Tampa-based festival continues to rise in popularity each year. Today, they dropped a diverse, star-studded lineup and announced Chris Lake and Slander as headliners.

Last year, the festival attempted hosting a 3-day event instead of 2 for the first time. While nothing went terribly wrong, the Sunday schedule only went from 4-10 pm, leaving some of the attendees wondering if the final day was a bit light on artists. That being said, the festival may have realized this and reverted back to 2 days for 2023’s edition.

However, they clearly put their focus on making sure this year’s lineup was going to pack a punch for both days.

As you can see, the lineup caters to lovers of all different genres. House lovers can rejoice that not only will Chris Lake be headlining, but other top acts such as AC Slater, Wax Motif and Habstrakt.

Headbangers got hooked up with an electric Eptic b2b Space Laces set, 2 artists who recently went b2b at Svdden Death’s Summoning Festival. Joining them to provide the heavy bass; Kompany, Ray Volpe, Zomboy and many more.

Even those who want to get weird will get the chance to dance to the wubs, with Ravenscoon, Champagne Drip and Smoakland joining the party.

2 days ago, the festival advertised a 24-hour blind waitlist, with 500 people getting a chance at 2-day admission for the festival’s 2013 price of $99. With this being announced shortly before the lineup drop, SMF has quickly created a buzz amongst ravers.

As always, the festival will take place Memorial Day Weekend at Raymond James Stadium.
