Forbidden Kingdom announces Rusko, Excision, Riot Ten, Dion Timmer, G Jones, Minnesota, Delta Heavy, DEATHPACT, and more for 2022.


The new year has brought renewed energy for many in the dance music scene, especially with the sheer volume of lineups that have been dropped over the past few weeks. Building off that hype for what’s to come in 2022 is Forbidden Kingdom, a bass-fueled festival in Florida that’s made a name for itself over the years by delivering some of the best offerings of wubs in the Sunshine State. Last month they dropped the details for their return and put early bird tickets up for sale, and today they’ve unveiled the first list of artists set to take the stage.

Those who make their way to the Orlando Amphitheater at Central Florida Fairgrounds on May 6-7 for the upcoming edition of Forbidden Kingdom will be treated to the impressive sounds of some of the bass scene’s finest. This includes heavy-hitters such as Excision, Delta Heavy, Rusko, DEATHPACT, Subtronics, G Jones, Dion Timmer, FuntCase, Barely Alive, and Riot Ten, but that’s just scratching the surface.

Other notable performances that are set to take place at Forbidden Kingdom this year include ones from Oolacile, Kai Wachi, Zeke Beats, Benda, Wooli, Modestep, Friction, and Downlink. Further, some rising stars such as Smoakland, Level Up, Zingara, Steller, Sharlitz Web, and JEANIE are sure to impress, while the b2b sets from Space Wizard and Smith., Getter and Space Laces, and Dirtyphonics and SampliFire will blow attendees away.

GA, GA+, and VIP two-day passes for Forbidden Kingdom are on sale now. Head over to their website for more details and grab your passes via SeeTickets.
