Tampa’s Sunset Music Festival dropped its phase-two lineup on Tuesday morning, and it includes a bona fide EDM-pop crossover star (Zedd), a couple of Canadians (Zeds Dead), a single Frenchman (Tchami) and one of dance music’s fastest-rising personalities (Illenium).

The festival — which already announced sets by Skrillex and Boys Noize side project Dog Blood, Liquid Stranger, Ganja White Night and more — is set to to happen on May 25-26 on the grounds outside of Tampa’s Raymond James Stadium.

Illenium might be best known for remixing the Chainsmokers’ “Don’t Let Me Down,” but the Denver-based producer was actually tapped to replace the ‘smokies in 2018 during a botched Sunset Music Festival lineup announcement.

However, his performance — along with the rest of Sunset Music Festival 2018’s day two sets — was washed out when weather related to Tropical Storm Alberto forced the Tampa Sports Authority to cancel the show.

More information on the festival is available via smftampa.com.
