Interstellar Meltdown is a festival within a festival. Wakarusa is on to something unique here by branding their entire EDM lineup under a separate name. This trick seems to have worked and the number of festival attendees has been on the rise ever since. Ultimately though, its just Wakarusa. Now, thats not a bad thing at all- TreeThugger ranks Waka as one of the best festivals in the country year after year! More info is at the event website:
