Tampa's Sunset Music Festival used to be a single day event with pop up stages, but over the last decade, it's grown into one of the biggest EDM festivals in the Southeast. This weekend it adds a third-day to its schedule for the very first time.

Starting Friday at the North Lot of Tampa's Raymond James Stadium, Sunset and its founders Disco Donnie and John Santoro celebrate its 10-year anniversary and welcome back one of its original performers (Alesso, from Sweden) who joins a lineup featuring some of the biggest names in the genre (Skrillex, Zeds Dead, Illenium), plus up-and-comers like Rossy, Tita Lau and Moore Kismet.
