Heading to Wheel House?
Fest co-founder Matt Schwegman breaks down the Wheel House Festival lineup day by day with reasons to be excited about each performer.
Friday, Sept. 13 5-10 p.m.
"Husband/wife duo Annie and Andy Skinner [A-Squared DJs]
are hometown heroes making their return after having a baby!"
"I am excited to see Keys N Krates. They're our only 'band' on the entire bill. They do live remixes of songs and their own stuff. I have only heard amazing things about their live show."
"Flosstradamus opened for Major Lazer at the Vogue in 2012 and were awesome. They have a great mix of hip-hop and trap; people will be dancing"
"I've never heard of Paul Oakenfold. ... I kid! People really took notice of the festival when they saw his name on the lineup. He is one of the pioneers of the entire genre. Phrases like 'living legend' don't get thrown around very often, but in this case, they should."
Vogue after party lineup includes: Tritonal, Topher Jones, The Dub Knight, Cadillac G, OhBeOne (10 p.m.-3 a.m.)
Saturday, Sept. 14 1-10 p.m.
"X5ight is up-and-coming electro/house duo from Indiana. starting to create a big buzz in the Midwest."
"Be prepared for your face to be melted by Shy Guy Says. This local 8-bit villain combines a mix of many sounds with some bass that may set off some car alarms."
"Action Jackson is one of the most well known DJs in Indy and also, one of the best. You will hear hip-hop, dubstep, rock and more in his set. Soooo good."
"LA-based DJ/producer Salva is known for his remix work. I recently watched a few of his videos and saw a crowd go bananas during his set."
"Araabmuzik opened for Sleigh Bells at The Vogue last year. and absolutely killed it. He's known for making live beats and instrumentals on a MPC drum machine at a blistering pace. He is really quite incredible to see live."
"Things we love about Josh Gard, a.k.a. Figure: A) he is from Indiana B) his bio says Genre: Bass Heavy Music C) he did a whole album about monsters D) his song 'Beetlejuice.' "
"I love seeing The Crystal Method live. They have headlined the Vogue a few times and I can remember quite clearly as it being some of the best parties we have ever had here in Broad Ripple. Crazy dance party are the words that come to mind."
"We are really lucky to have house superstar Wolfgang Gartner on our lineup. There is a reason he is closing out the event."
