Why Go: Kids come for the names like Diplo and Dillon Francis but dance just as much to the artists they otherwise might never have heard. The lineup changes from city-to-city, but make sure you arrive early enough to catch sets from people like soca superstar Bunji Garlin, Mexican genre-fuser Toy Selectah and Philly club DJs Sega and Swizzymack.
15 Must-See Acts: Outkast, Diplo, Garlin, Fatboy Slim, Dillon Francis, Chance the Rapper, DJ Sega, DJ Swizzymack, Riff Raff, Sleigh Bells, Toy Selectah, Walshy Fire, A$AP Ferg, Dan Deacon, DJ Snake
