Mood Beach - An Electro-Pop project from Portland, OR. First forming in 2015 around the timbre of a TR707, Mood Beach continues to push out synth jams from a far away shore, dipped in rose-tinted waters.
Fire Nuns - A hobby that became an adventurous, thoughtful, and fearless ongoing musical experiment. An internationally successful pop group that got sick of the commercial treadmill, and sick of each other. Now, seventeen years later, it’s all back on— to the delight of the seemingly invisible masses of hardcore fans. Neither a public nor critic’s favorite, FIRE NUNS continues to fill a much needed void.
Sea Moss - Sea Moss is Zach D'Agostino and Noa Ver, a duo based out of Portland Oregon, specializing in homemade electronics, lopsided dance beats, and analog noise.

The Fabulous Downey Brothers - Fabulous Downey Brothers are fronted by real life brothers Liam (of So Pitted) and Sean Downey. This Seattle-based band has over 20 different looks and styles, and the band has been morphing through the greater NW music scene for 8 years.
With special DJ Sets by Cam XXX & Soll:
Soll is a Portland-based producer and colorful electronic-music composer who got his start in 2015. He takes a playful and relaxed approach to his electronic production; a heavy percussive drive, head-bopping kinetic Nintendo 64 samples, and moody-textured synths that bring you to a vibrant soundscape. Chill out with Soll on his new and debut EP "Loading".
With a vintage 2-turntable setup, this cosmic cowboy delivers the goods. Whether it’s a projection of ethereal, spacy noises, or a manifestation of downright dirty vinyl beats, any CAM XXX set is sure to be full of moments that appeal to fans of any genre.
