On the scene for their first year, What The Festival will take place July 27th – 29th on the outskirts of the Hood National Forest in White River Canyon, which is about 100 miles east of Portland, Oregon.
The three-day event boasts a stellar lineup that covers many niches across the world of EDM from Electro to Moombahton, Downtempo to Dubstep and everything in-between. Nearly 40 acts have already been announced and we anticipate a few more additions are yet to come as the festival isn’t until late late July. Scroll down for full lineup.
Early bird tickets have already sold out but regular tickets are still available at the event’s website, whatthefestival.com
