Sunset Music Festival proves that it is here to stay with an unexpectedly powerful lineup for this year’s installment.

After rumors of the festival not returning this year had potential attendees disappointed, the announcement comes as a pleasant surprise. Tampa mayor Bob Buckhorn was against its return, stating: “The types of drugs that tend to be associated with those electronic dance music festivals obviously catastrophic results for people who make bad decisions.”

Buckhorn might bash the festival, but he definitely cannot bash this lineup, and neither can we. With every artist being a stand-out name, SMF has succeeded in hosting one of the most solid lineups of 2017. Headliners Major Lazer, RL Grime, Above & Beyond, and Zeds Dead will satiate any picky music fan’s thirst, while other artists, such as A-Trak, Getter, Illenium, Kayzo, and Snails, will keep the ground shaking throughout the entirety of Memorial Day Weekend.


Sunset Music Festival takes place May 27th and 28th at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Fla. Tickets are available at SMFTAMPA.COM.
