Six Sets You Shouldn’t Miss at Day Trip Festival 2023
J. Worra is one of the hottest house artists in the scene right now and clearly has no plans to cool down this summer. Tracks like “Higher Than You,” “Loveless,” and “Lightning To Strike” with Nathan Nicholson helped define her latest ascension in the scene last year, and she’s roared forward in 2023 by dropping “Fade” and teaming up with Shift K3Y on “All The Girls.”
J. Worra has continued on her run of impressive sets this year, including her recent performances at EDC Las Vegas, Camp EDC, and Dirtybird CampINN, which saw her move thousands of bodies on the dancefloor with her infectious tunes. On June 22, she’ll take the stage at Electric Forest, but just a few days later, she’ll surface on the High Tide stage at Day Trip Festival – and you need to be there.
Robin S (Live – 30 Year Anniversary of “Show Me Love”)
If there’s one performance that will be truly special at Day Trip Festival this year, it would be the one from Robin S. It was three decades ago when her debut track, “Show Me Love,” dropped on Big Beat Records and quickly rose through the charts on its path of domination. Since then, that single has become one of the most iconic tunes in the house scene, with countless artists spinning it in their sets and twisting the track in their own way.
While “Show Me Love” might be her biggest hit, there are plenty of other releases from Robin S that have also won over the hearts of her fans, like “Love For Love” and “Back To You” with Gabriel & Castellon. Don’t miss her live set at the festival; she’s sure to put on a show-stopping performance!
UK-based artist Low Steppa has left a lasting impact on the house music scene and isn’t stopping anytime soon. Over the years, his releases on labels ranging from Armada Music to Defected have been absorbed by those who have come to love his soulful signature style. This includes massive hits “Heard It All Before,” “Wanna Show You” with Reigns, and “Runnin’” with Kelli-Leigh, and he’s continued to build on his legacy in 2023 by dropping “BFG” with Crusy on Toolroom and “The Feeling” on Simma Black.
While Low Steppa’s tunes will put a smile on your face and get your feet shuffling along with them, it’s his performances that have propelled his career even further. Whether he’s taking the stage at the showcases hosted by Defected Records or dominating the decks at festivals like Tomorrowland, the curated cuts he brings along with them will help you easily find your groove on the dancefloor. Don’t miss him when he takes over the High Tide stage on Saturday.
There’s no doubt that you’ve either caught CID or heard one of his originals or remixes played if you’ve been dancing to house music over the past few years. This New Yorker has been a force to be reckoned with in the scene as he’s dropped a hearty helping of house heaters that include “Sweet Memories” with Kaskade, “Where I Want 2 B,” and “Jumpin’” and “Let Me Take You” with Westend. Not to mention that he continues to curate the sounds of other artists bubbling up through the ranks of the scene via his imprint, Night Service Only.
Beyond producing, CID is dedicated to his craft of making dancefloors move to the beat, and he’s flexed his abilities wherever he’s played. Recent performances at Brooklyn Mirage and EDC Las Vegas have only solidified this fact, and the Day Trip faithful had their chance to catch him earlier this month when he took the stage during one of their LA State Historic Park shows. CID is sure to throw down some quality tunes on the High Tide stage on Sunday, don’t sleep on his set.
Turn back the clock to 2014, and you’ll find a plethora of house tunes that have continued to get played out to this day, including the smash hit “I Wanna Feel.” While this wasn’t the first track from Secondcity that helped put his sultry style on full display, it quickly catapulted him into the upper echelon of the scene, and he’s only continued to impress ever since.
Secondcity solidified his place in the scene with even more house goodness over the past few years that have included singles such as “More Love” with Noizu, “Let the Music” with A Double, and “All I Want” with Paul Woolford and Andrea Martin. The UK-based artist has also wooed crowds everywhere from Splash House and Groove Cruise to Ushuaia Ibiza and The BPM Festival – so don’t miss your chance to catch him on the Deep End stage on Saturday.
Creating magical moments on the dancefloor and tunes that will have you dancing the night away is at Miane‘s core. This Ibiza-based DJ and producer has been throwing down a ton of impressive releases over the years that have landed on labels ranging from Sola Nauts and Repopulate Mars to Black Book Records and Knee Deep In Sound.
Recent successes in the scene have included her massive collaboration with Chris Lake, “Who Are You?,” along with follow-up singles on Black Book Records, “Broken” and “For One Night.” Her latest to land on the beloved house imprint is “Place To Be,” and quite frankly, there is no better place to be than her set on the Deep End stage at Day Trip Festival, where her hypnotic grooves will take control of your soul on Sunday.
