Two weeks ago, from April 27th and 28th, the first annual Ubbi Dubbi Music Festival, located at Panther Island Pavilion in Fort Worth, Texas took place. The festival sold out completely, selling 45,000 tickets. There were tons of big names on the lineup, including Illenium, Slander, Tchami, Zeds Dead, Chris Lake, Ganja White Night among many others.
“For a first-time event, it was rather remarkable how ingrained into EDM culture Ubbi Dubbi felt on Saturday and Sunday alike.”– Central Track
There were many highlights of that weekend, including Illenium premiering his new collab “Good Things Fall Apart” featuring Jon Bellion and Zeds Dead dropping their new untitled collab with Yookie. Also, Slander brought out Said The Sky to play their new highly anticipated track “Potions”. You can check out the pre and post coverage of Ubbi Dubbi here.
