“With a beautiful backdrop amid the mountains and a stunning roster, it is no wonder that the festival attracted thousands of fans in its first year,” declared DJ Mag of last year’s event. MINUS ZERO officially launched its northeast edition last April in Vermont with thousands of fans and a vast array of electronic and dance music artists, including headliners deadmau5 and Kaskade. There were also sets from international festival draws, like Thomas Jack, Gorgon City, Jauz, ATTLAS, Serge Devant, Tony Arzadon and Pierce Fulton, among others. With three stages of music and the ski lifts and slopes open at Stratton Mountain Resort–an all-inclusive site featuring lodging and hotel accommodations–the picturesque backdrop of Stratton provided a stunning and unique setting for the event.
