Today, Zeds Dead’s Deadbeats label is announcing the lineup for their second annual North American tour. Shows across the tour are set to include Lunoe, Borgore, GG Magree, Ducky, G Jones, Zeds Dead themselves, and many more. The new lineup features names from a wide spectrum of niches within the electronic genre, providing a comprehensive musical experience for fans.
Says Zeds Dead on this year’s lineup, “Look at all these Deadbeats! Over 50 of the dopest bass music producers from absolute legends to some of our new favorite artists including a few that are hitting the road for the first time ever!”
The tour is set to kick off on June 9th in Salt Lake City and will consist of 17 shows across the continent before concluding in Seattle on November 30th. Like last year’s iteration, each tour date features a different lineup unique to each city with 5-7 different artists, in addition to interactive fan elements like the Deadbeats Arcade which features free old games, food trucks, graffiti installations, and merchandise pop-ups.
Zeds Dead shares, “We’re creating our own world people! A Deadbeats world where there are no borders and all are welcome. We haven’t figured out how all that will work out but we can start small, with a world of music and art, fun and games, and of course you! Let’s create this world together and immerse ourselves in it for a couple of hours.”
Following the success of last year’s inaugural Deadbeats Tour that saw stops at historic venues such as Red Rocks, Navy Pier, Bill Graham Civic Auditorium and the WaMu Theatre, this year’s tour will make its first appearance in Detroit, Minneapolis, and Hawaii.
As the brainchild of Zeds Dead, Deadbeats label recently released singles from Devault, DNMO, GG Magree, Hunter Siegel, an EP from Champagne Drip, and a remix EP for Zeds Dead and Illenium’s track “Where The Wild Things Are.” Forthcoming Deadbeats releases include Shades, Space Jesus, Chuurch, LICK, um…, and a highly anticipated third installment of their We Are Deadbeats compilation series.
