The Year of EDM continues apace with the announcement of yet another dance-centric festival.

Skrillex and Pretty Lights, two of the most prominent artists in the genre, are curating and headlining a two-day electronic event in Nashville. The With Your Friends Festival will be held on October 26th and 27th along the city’s waterfront; other artists slated to appear include Nas (with a nine-piece band), Santigold, 12th Planet, Dillon Francis, Michal Minert and TOKiMONSTA.

An after-party on an adjacent riverboat is also promised. Tickets go on sale Wednesday, August 29th at 10 a.m. PST.

"Festival producer" is just the latest line in Skrillex’s resume; he recently composed an original score for Harmony Korine’s film Spring Breakers and ranked Number Two on Forbes' list of the Highest Paid DJs.

“Long Walk Home”

Bruce Springsteen | 2007

When the subject of this mournful song returns home, he hardly recognizes his town. Springsteen told Rolling Stone the alienation the man feels is a metaphor for life in a politically altered post-9/11 America. “Who would have ever thought we’d live in a country without habeas corpus?” he said. “That’s Orwellian. That’s what political hysteria is about and how effective it is. I felt it in myself. You get frightened for your family, for your home. And you realize how countries can move way off course, very far from democratic ideals.”
