Get prepared for an exhilarating edition of Audiotistic Bay Area with all the essential info including the set times and more.


The return of Audiotistic Bay Area was long-awaited and brings much anticipation after a year without festivals. While the festival usually occurs during the summertime with endless amounts of dancing fun in the sun at the Shoreline Amphitheatre, this year, however, the festival has been moved to November 20-21. That doesn’t mean that Audiotistic Bay Area is lacking in the lineup department as artists including Moore Kismet, JAUZ, Level Up, Nostalgix, Rossy, Softest Hard, SVDDEN DEATH, Tchami, Alison Wonderland, and Blossom are set to play.

While making sure you have your tickets and other festival essentials is important, attendees should also come prepared for this year’s changes. A November in the Bay Area usually means bracing for cold weather, so stay up to date with the weather ahead of this weekend. Be sure to pack a jacket, hat, and/or sunglasses to stand the daytime heat, while also being able to bundle up for the chilly weather once the sun dips below the horizon!

With two stages and 35 artists over two days, there will be more time for dancing at Audiotistic Bay Area as well. In recent years, the two stages have usually been a short walk from each other, while somehow still avoiding a sound bleed. That being said, don’t forget to protect your ears this weekend – be sure to bring a reliable pair of earplugs along with you to the event.

Reminder To Mind Your Belongings:

Unfortunately, many people have reported pickpockets, bag slashings, and theft of wallets, smartphones, purses, and other valuables during this festival season. While this small number of bad apples in the bunch doesn’t define an entire crowd, there are opportunistic people who come to these events to take advantage of unsuspecting partygoers and it’s important to be mindful of your valuables while at Audiotistic Bay Area.
