Canadian EDM Legend Excision Returns To Headline Jam-packed 2018 Ever After Lineup

(Kitchener, Ontario) – Just a few miles southeast of Toronto in the once unsuspecting city of Kitchener, Ontario is one of Canada’s most anticipated music events, Ever After Music Festival. Adventurers from Ontario and beyond have gathered here annually since 2015 to witness some of the most well-known artists the ever-expanding EDM genre has to offer as well as a plethora of new talent yet to be truly appreciated. Located at Kitcheners Bingemans (425 Bingemans Centre Dr) from June 8th – 10th Ever After will amass upwards of nearly 40-000 people all eager to experience what the cutting edge festival has to offer this year. Ever After Music Festival has always been on the forefront of the EDM culture constantly paying attention to what artists people love to listen to, and this year definitely showcases that featuring names such as AC Slater, Illenium, Terror Reid, Dubloadz and Phase One, Wooli, the prehistoric legend Excision, a newly announced performance by Pendulum (Dj Set) and a very, very rare Downlink b2b Space Laces set. But Ever After offers so much more than just an incredibly talented and diverse lineup including EDM superstars and hometown heroes. The bass oriented festival, over the course of three days, will treat Adventurers to a utopian style theme strewn across three different stages (including one dedicated to DNB on Friday and one dedicated to local talent). Fit for a fairytale EA features theatrical actors, themed dancers and a beautiful, Enchanted Forest that looks as though it came out of an Alice In Wonderland novel. On top of all that Ever After also includes a games area with inflatable football, giant billiards, a WipeOut obstacle course and zip lining. Adding to all of that, on top of the iconic hill, you can even enjoy the Bingemans waterpark to cool off during the day and Vendor Village offers options galore to serve all of everybody’s food cravings whatever the time may be.

Ever After organizer and President of Beyond Oz Productions Inc. Gabriel Mattacchione explains that the event strives “to give an unparalleled, world-class festival experience” and that “We’re constantly on the pulse of the EDM scene and work to provide a line-up that combines a mix of emerging acts and EDM superstars”. He then states that “Ever After is an immersive, uncompromising musical experience. This year is guaranteed to be the most memorable one yet.”

This year is already shaping out to be one of the most successful overall in young festival’s history with VIP and the newly announced Rabbit Hole tickets both flying off the shelves and selling out months before the festival and GA tickets continuing to sell fast. Hosting more mind-boggling back to back (b2b) sets than previous years, some of the duo sets on the 2018 lineup include the much anticipated Zomboy b2b Skism set that is sure to have the crowd moving, the return of the historic 12th Planet b2b Cookie Monsta b2b Funtcase set, the super popular Boogie T b2b Squnto set and just released on Monday, Downlink b2b Space Laces. The amount of talent altogether within in the lineup is truly astonishing with artists such as Snails, Liquid Stranger, Delta Heavy, Svdden Death, Sullivan King and many more all displaying why this may indeed be Ever Afters most prominent year to date in terms of artists. In terms of sound, it is guaranteed to be their most prominent year yet. For the first time in its brief history, Ever After attendees will be treated to the heavyweight brand, PK Sound. Boasting superior sound quality PK will keep the music focused on where it needs to be, in the crowd, and keeping noise bleeding into surrounding areas to a minimum, is a win-win for everybody.

Ever After is the ultimate 3-day summer weekend getaway including off site camping just a short walk from the event grounds as well as cabins, containers and even RV parking for non-campers to keep the party going. Ever After prides itself in going above and beyond for EDM lovers across the globe providing performances that will have crowds fists pumping day and night. Leaving people with lasting memories is something this festival is great at doing and with the hype behind this year, the memories made may be the best ones made yet.
