Bassheads from all around America converged on Kansas City, Missouri this past weekend for Dancefestopia as the fourth year festival brought the noise to the Midwestern states.
Followers of Bassnectar, Porter Robinson, Zomboy and Datsik gathered for a weekend of beautiful weather, great music and better friends. Centralized around a spacious and relaxing campground, ravers roamed the grounds of Berkeley Riverfront Park, enjoying a view of the Missouri River. Festies even had the opportunity to book a helicopter ride during the festival and cruise the skies above the venue.
The vibrant sunsets glimmering overhead added to the magic of the heavy bass, shining lights, and smiles all around.
Soft grass and the silhouette of Kansas City’s skyline created a unique atmosphere among the rainbow spectrum of tents, where campers made new friends and bonded with old ones. The afternoon brought about a migration to the festival grounds, where the spacious venue allowed for plenty of viewing space. By the time Bassnectar took the stage, the rave family was fully assembled. Nodding heads and slashing hair were commonplace at this gathering, with plenty of heavy-hitting DJs to fulfill the need for noise. Following Zomboy, everyone had booked a chiropractor appointment after the wave of bass that had swept over them.
Porter Robinson delivered a beautiful and emotional set for the Festopians, who gathered to celebrate the last night of the party. Porter’s kind voice chimed in throughout his live set, bringing a wave of calm over a crowd of people who hadn’t stopped moving since they made it past security.
As Dancefestopia continues to grow Midwestern dance music fans can look forward to calling another quality music festival their own.
