The other big festival in Union Park (the one that doesn't rhyme with Itchpork) leans heavy on EDM, jam and rap. The 2014 lineup especially runs up a large electric bill—Bassnectar, Snoop Dogg, Kid Cudi and STS9 headline. The rest of the bill looks a lot like a year's subscription to Mayhem at the Mid, with big name DJs like Alesso, Zeds Dead, Dada Life, Wolfgang Gartner and more. Notable bookings: Swedish dance-pop darlings Little Dragon, foodie MC Action Bronson, posh micro-R&B singer Chet Faker, weirdo new-wavers Future Islands, cartoonish web troll Riff Raff, chillwave pioneer Washed Out, local roots-reggae pop act Wild Belle and the sort of lo-fi Pearl Jam, Dr. Dog. Let's hope the weather is a little nicer this year?
