Calling all headbangers! Are you suffering from major Bass Canyon and Lost Lands withdrawals?
You're in luck - Forbidden Kingdom Music Festival, the largest bass and Dubstep Festival in South Florida, will return for two days in sunny, Boca Raton, FL on February 15th and 16th. This medieval-themed festival features a STACKED lineup with major names such as Excision, Dion Timmer, Zomboy, Adventure Club, Sullivan King and more.
Not only is this lineup a full reason to send it, but if you're dealing with winter across the country right now (like me in freezing cold Denver), then a trip to Boca Raton this time of year sounds magical. With an average temp of SEVENTY-SEVEN degrees, this is one fest that you can dress to impress without having to worry about freezing your rave booty off at. And, if you're traveling from out of town, why not make a trip out of this festival and stay for a few days at the beach?!

Now, let's talk about some of these artists featured on the lineup. First things first, Excision will be playing a Detox set and an OG set on Sunday (Day 2) of the festival. Although I've yet to experience Forbidden Kingdom for myself, I'm willing to bet this will be one heck of a good time.
In addition to the king himself, Forbidden Kingdom Music Festival features tons of other artists that will break yer neck. Here are 4 other artists that you cannot miss:
I haven't been able to witness a Dion Timmer set live, but from all the live sets I've listened to, I think it will be well worth the wait. Saying this young artist is talented is an understatement - I'm seriously blown away every time Dion Timmer releases new music. Check out this brand new track he just released with Calcium (featuring Celestic), titled "Insane"!
I NEVER miss an opportunity to shake the ground with fellow headbangers during a Sullivan King set. I've seen him twice live and he does.not.dissapoint. I'm always extra amazed when an artist can DJ and also play an instrument live. Trust me, you don't want to miss this one. Check out this live set from E. Zoo that always gets me pumped at the gym!
A classic duo, Adventure Club, is always a fun time. I love that I love all of their music and can get all the feels with some classic throwbacks, as well as get down to some of their newer tracks. It's a great feeling when you've supported an artist from the beginning and are still loving their music years later!
I love getting down to the wonky beats of Doctor P. I've only had the chance to see Doctor P once but it was an awesome set and I'd love to chance to see him live again. This song is an oldie, but a goodie:
