Shamrockfest, the massive annual music festival held at RFK Stadium in Washington DC, is back in action this Saturday, and is bigger and better than ever! This huge music festival features 10 stages, 50 bands and DJs, and over 40,000 crazy fans, 15 party areas, carnival rides, food vendors, beer and more!
You’ll recognize a lot of names from the DC nightlife scene at Shamrockfest with a lineup that includes a set from Panorama’s very own DJ Maskell who plays for us on Fridays at Ultrabar in the Vault. He’ll be throwing down a signature set of house, dance, electro, and live mashups that is sure to tear up the crowd!
Renowned local heavy metal music enthusiast and shock jock Michael Swinburne was in attendance at Shamrockfest 2009 to check out the great bands, but along the way he stopped in the Electronic DJ tent. He candidly remarked “God I hate this techno shit, but I just can’t help but dance to it when Maskell’s playing. He’s really damn good.”
You’ll also find DJ Chris Styles, a resident DJ at a zillion clubs around DC and of course Sirius/XM, playing in the 995 DJ Tent with Playboy Model Kay Jay, Rene, Older School, Pat Premier, Dave Russell, and 2nutz!
In the VIP DJ stage, you’ll find the venerable DJ Flounder (of DC101′s Flounder’s Mashups) doing his thing in front of a huge audience, accompanied by Flow, Kwest, lil fos, Neekola (who just released a killer track “dirty female“), Maskell, and DJ Pauly D’s vip-only second set of the day!
