Each year 'round Thanksgiving, we here at Crossfade like to sit around the conference room table and share the things for which we're most thankful. And while we're plenty grateful for the web hits Justin Bieber's baby drama produced this year, we're even more grateful for a crazy little thing called dance music.
So needless to say, we'll be raging hard as shit on Saturday, November 26, at our favorite holiday electro freak fest, Dancegiving, celebrating its second glorious year of Turkey Time beats.
The outdoor/indoor festival is a dance music extravaganza like no other. It goes down in Downtown Fort Lauderdale, presenting 14 hours of uhntz, uhntz, uhntz and womp-womp courtesy of some of the hottest DJs in the world, including Wolfgang Gartner, Diplo, and MSTRKRFT.
There's an entire stage dedicated to dubstep, a metaphorical nana-nana boo-boo to all the naysayers who said dub was dead. Newsflash, skeptics, dub's here to stay.
Don't believe us? Watch this GoPro commercial. You're a sellout, Skrillex! Just kidding, keep chasing that corporate paper, yo.
Meanwhile, keeping shit authentic on the dubstep stage at Dancegiving are dudes like Ajapai, Juan Basshead, and Borgore. Plus, Y-100's Cato K will be dropping backyard beats on the main stage during the day. Be sure to catch his set and show him some Miami love.
Dancegiving. Saturday, November 26, 2011. America's Backyard, 100 SW Third Ave., Fort Lauderdale. Tickets cost $30 to $65. Call 954-449-1025 or visit dancegivingfestival.com.
