2018's Republic of 'Grass is almost a Concrete Reality, created for wide exploration, deep discovery and pure enjoyment.

We're unfolding this year's epic lineup in two phases – with this, the first announcement, merely a little teaser for what's to come. As always, 60+ supernatural artists hand-picked and hand-stitched into one seamless experience. Something for everyone, and built for maximal fun and minimal filler. You can see (and hear) our epic headliners from far, far away but we encourage you to dig in a little further, to uncover our many hidden treasures and strange pleasures.
