What the Weekend!

WTF! year three

by

comment

Half-naked pool party in the eastern Oregon desert with a kickass soundtrack? Yes, please.

The third year of What the Festival—affectionately known as WTF! and held at the Wolf Run Ranch in Dufur, a small town on the backside of Mt Hood—combines an excellent EDM heavy musical lineup with the addition of hot dishes that most music festivals leave off the menu including yoga, belly dancing and meditation workshops, swimming pools, desert camping, solar panels and art installations.

Don't miss:

Glitch Mob: Don't let the name of this LA electronica three-piece cloud your judgment. Although glitch may be the genre from which the mob was borne, the group's sound has evolved far past the borders of one contemporary EDM realm into a complex hybrid that stops and goes with the ease of a well-oiled brake pedal.

RL Grime: The 22-year-old future-bass prodigy and prince of the remix who claims influences from James Blake to Will Smith.

Lost Launder: With a debut album produced with the flawless craft of Brent Knopf (formerly one third of Menomena), this Portland-based, folk-vocaled four-piece creates chilling three-minute odysseys mixing sounds both organic and mechanic.
