Rocks Off's Something Wicked Mini-Guide: Shadow Field

SW Banner Oct 24.jpg
Cooler temperatures? Check. Loud music? Check. Crazy outfits? Check. If my scientific calculations are correct, those three things are a recipe for a great fall day. And while the pubs will be crawling and the houses will be haunted the best place to get all three of those this weekend is going to be at the Something Wicked Festival.

Yesterday Rocks Off captain Chris Gray took a look at things over at the Bass Massacre stage. While bass is great, there's an argument to be made that man cannot live on bass alone. For those looking to take a break from the bone rattling, there's the Shadow Field stage.

Headlined by house music superstar Kaskade (who rocked the Bayou Music Center back in July), Shadow Field represents the more melodic side of EDM. Like your music more dancey and less destructive? This is the place to be.
