To kick off the EDM festival season, Kitchener’s EDM music festival, Ever After, is hitting their five-year milestone as a staple of Electronic Dance Music festival in Canada. This festival is predominately known for bringing in crazy bass, dubstep, and hairstyle music producers from all over that will grantee to give you whiplash.
Coming back for another year, bringing in some support from some huge headliners like Illenuim, Excision; a Canadian icon in the dubstep genre, as well as the not-to-miss B2B performance by Kill the Snails; this back to back duo composed of Montreal native Snails and New York native Kill the Noise, will be a first-time experience in Canadian EDM festival history.
Last year, the festival said they will make sure their five-year anniversary will be big, and they seemed to have lived up to their promise. Let’s take a look at some of the sets that are guaranteed to stand out and bring you not help but dance your days away:
The Friday will bring strong performances by some big names like Feed Me, Rusko, Gentelmens Club, Noisia, and of course ending the show Kill the Snails; this B2B will be a Canadian first with rising star and Montreal native, Snails. Both these artists together will bring some hardcore bass beats.
On the second day, the Saturday, we have must-see performances by some iconic techno and house artists like Chocolate Puma, Chris Lake, and Green Velvet. Let’s not forget bass artists to look out for like Funtcase, Zomboy, and the staple of bass music; Canadian-born artist, Excision as he will be bringing a performance that will not disappoint.
The final day of this crazy three-day festival will end on a high note with some very promising performances with many B2B sets. Some notable B2Bs to see will be SKiSM B2B Trampa, Riot Ten B2B Sullivan King; a first-ever B2B for these two together, and finally, one that will definitely bring some crazy bass beats will be Boogie T B4B Squinto B4B Subtronics B4B Al Ross. Let’s not forget Drum and Bass sensation Andy C, the mysterious French house artist Malaa, and of course, the infamous Illenium putting a close the festival. Illenium always puts on a show; taking you on a euphoric journey from where chaos meets beauty. This final set will leave you full of emotion as this festival ends happily ever after.
Two bigger stages, including a third stage for local artists. Their main stage, the Escalibur stage, promises to be their biggest stage yet throughout the five consecutive years of this music festival. Their second stage, On The Grand amphitheatre stage, will be bringing better sound systems and more amenities close by. And lastly the Ontario Stage, the smaller stage, supporting local artists, will be bringing equally improved sound systems. Better sounds, more water stations, with more interactive areas for fun and games, and better VIP grounds for the most optimal festival experience.
