This year, the ever-hip and massive Basel Castle lineup is getting mad foolish.
The Overthrow peeps announced a beefy list of artists, featuring Purity Ring, Twin Shadow and a host of others, a large number of whom can be included in the always ace Fool's Gold family.
Plus, there's going to be a bunch of slick visual art on display and tons of alcohol. PDouble-plus, it's gonna be in castle. That's pretty dope. How many times have you ever been in a fucking castle?
Those who get past the treacherous line that'll inevitably be snaking 'round the venue will be vibin' all night to the groovy sounds of some of the buzz-worthiest names in music. Check out the full list of performers and try not to drool all over your keyboard.

As you can see, Overthrow is packing the Castle with some hip-hop, some nu disco, some favored local acts, some trap shit and generally all things relevant and awesome. There's still more to be announced as well, so keep an eye out.
If you get tired of the music (which you won't), the Castle also comes fully-stocked with art exhibits, interactive games, installations, and hot eye-candy.
Oh yeah, and we've been told there will be tons of PBR. Nice.
