Wakaan Festival 2023

Wakaan Music Festival Announces Lineup ft. Liquid Stranger, GRiZ, LSDream, Ravenscoon, Ahee, and more

Arkansas’s Mulberry Mountain has inevitably become a beautiful home to Liquid Stranger’s curated event, Wakaan Music Festival. With less than two months until the festival begins, the lineup has finally been announced. Per usual, there’s plenty to be excited about given the volume of exceptionally talented artists set to play for Wakaan’s 3rd year of operation. 

Liquid Stranger first introduced Wakaan Music Festival to the masses in 2019, before suffering a 2-year hiatus due to COVID, and returning to the Ozarks last year. Since its conception, bass enthusiasts have put the festival on a pedestal for having some of the top performers in the genre, combined with the iconic venue that features luscious views.


This year’s pre-party, which takes place on September 27th, features sought after performances from the likes of Saka B2B Black Carl!, A Hundred Drums, Rusko, Sippy, Hyrdraulix, Buku b2b G-REX, Liquid Stranger and more. To add to the mouthwatering preliminary celebration, expect stage takeovers from festival curator Liquid Stranger’s downtempo label SSKWAN, and Claude VonStroke’s Dirtybird.

The weekend’s main lineup features some familiar faces like Khiva, Yheti, Ternion Sound, Truth, TVBOO, VEIL, and EAZYBAKED. Further, rising producers including ATYYA, DRINKURWATER, Mary Droppinz, and Barnacle Boi will be flexing their most proper tunes for debut Wakaan sets. 

Thankfully, there’s still time to join in the fun as 3-day passes are still available while supplies last. Act quickly because the magic of Mulberry Mountain awaits.
