Deep Tropics Music Festival Reveals 2023 Lineup and Green Initiatives
Nashville’s Deep Tropics Music Festival returns to Bicentennial Park on August 18-19, 2023, with a stellar lineup featuring SG Lewis (DJ Set), Gorgon City, What So Not, KHIVA, Inzo, Eli & Fur, and Sonny Fodera, among others. The undercard showcases breakthrough talents like Major League DJz, Kream, Saka, VEIL, and Charles Meyer.
“The line-up this year truly represents a global dance music sound,” said Blake Atchison, co-founder of Deep Tropics.“We have artists from six continents which really fires me up. Growing up in Nashville, it’s a bit surreal to host this level of cultural diversity in a city that is still primarily known for country music. I’m particularly excited for Major League DJz, Gorgon City, SG Lewis, Sonny Fodera, DJ Minx, Coco & Breezy, Lunice, and What So Not along with local legends Subrinse and Lux Velour.”
The festival will feature three immersive stages, including the ancient temple-inspired “Meru” stage, the bass-fueled “Lotus” stage, and the “Congo Soundsystem.” The unique amphitheater setting provides perfect viewpoints with the beautiful downtown Nashville skyline as a backdrop.
Deep Tropics is committed to sustainability, producing a carbon-negative event for the third consecutive year. Their non-profit organization, Deep Culture, Inc., leads these efforts with a zero-waste program and initiatives that have significantly reduced landfill waste. Proceeds from Green Disco Eco-Bands have enabled the festival to plant over 59,000 trees in Kenya, offsetting its carbon footprint.
In addition to the main event, Deep Tropics offers a full program of pre-parties, daytime events, workshops, and intimate gatherings throughout the weekend. Fans can also look forward to pop-up events leading up to the festival weekend.
