Project GLOW paves path to Philadelphia sequel featuring A-Trak, Jai Wolf, ILLENIUM, Dombresky, and more
After a lauded first installment in Washington, DC from April 30 – May 1, Project GLOW organizers have formalized the talent that will soundtrack the festival’s Philadelphia offshoot. From October 1 – 2 at Subaru Park in Chester, Pennsylvania, a diverse array of dance/electronic acts, including Alison Wonderland, ILLENIUM, Marauda, Martin Garrix, and Dombresky, among others, will deliver sets.
The Project GLOW Philadelphia lineup notably leans more into the back-to-back format than that of its DC predecessor; A-Trak is slated to share the decks with a currently anonymous comrade. Dom Dolla will sonically rub shoulders with Green Velvet during the weekend, with Habstrakt/Good Times Ahead, HE$H/Calcium, Hydraulix/Leotrix, and GG Magree/Mija (So Tuff So Cute) to follow suit.
Insomniac and Club GLOW, the organizers behind Moonrise Festival, appear to have taken cues from the bass-driven positioning of Moonrise’s annual programming. Bass and dubstep have healthy representation on the Club GLOW Philadelphia lineup, with Ekali, Zomboy, and Kai Wachi serving as a small sample of the lineup’s wub-friendly invited artists.
Project Glow DC’s lineup materialized as one of the 2022 festival circuit’s least-recycled rosters of talent, with a strong undercard. The Project GLOW Philadelphia lineup continues this trend, offering a fresh, genre-diverse collection of acts and forward-thinking back-to-back pairings that, together, bode well for Project GLOW’s continued recognition as one of the more curatively innovative events of the East Coast’s Mid-Atlantic region.
