While the hype behind the return of live music continues to reach a fever pitch, electronic fans are still feeling immense gratitude for the influx of virtual festivals that have taken root in the last year. Now adding to a long list of virtual shows, SiriusXM has announced the inaugural three-day Dance Again Festival taking place online.
Beginning May 28 and running throughout Memorial Day Weekend, SiriusXM will stream the festival event across four Sirius channels, including Diplo’s Revolution, Chill, BPM, and Utopia. Dance Again features a lineup of more than 100 of electronic music’s finest, including the Mad Decent helmer, deadmau5, Lane 8, Martin Garrix, Alesso, David Guetta, Dillon Francis and plenty more. The festival also boasts up-and-coming artists streamers can’t get enough of like Surf Mesa, Imanbek, and ford., who sits at number 19 on Dancing Astronaut’s Top 20 Electronic Album’s of 2020 with his The Color of Nothing LP.
While SiriusXM is typically a paid streaming service, the satellite radio giant will be offering free streaming from May 26 through June 8 as part of their Listen Free event, during which new listeners will get the chance to sample more than 100 ad-free channels from talk radio to news to entertainment. The Listen Free event is available to non-subscribers on inactive SiriusXM car radios and on the SiriusXM app, while the Utopia channel will be available to these listeners only on the SiriusXM app.
