Granted, most of the acts on the roster (which will vary slightly from city to city) are DJs and producers, but there is one more traditional four-piece band that'll be featured on the main stage -- the Disco Biscuits (pictured). "Naturally, I assume there's going to be a lot of trance thrown down on ID tour, and trance is our bread and butter," bassist Marc Brownstein tells Spinner. In the late '90s, the band engineered a hybrid of live, improvisational-heavy rock music with electronic dance styles and, in doing so, really pioneered trance-fusion.
The Disco Biscuits have been a featured act at festivals such as Bonnaroo, Lollapalooza and Rothbury, but was most recently seen at the electronic mecca known as Ultra. "The nice thing is, we have 150 original songs in all genres," says Brownstein. "We can play an hour of electronic music every night and never run out of material."
IDentity Festival will launch on August 11 in Noblesville, Ind. and snake its way across America before wrapping at the iconic Gorge Amphitheater in George, Wash. on Sept. 10. Visit the official festival website to peep the deets, including the actual lineup for your hometown. And although it might not be mentioned in the FAQ, the tour will, clearly, be BYOGS -- as in, bring your own glow sticks.
