🎵 Musical Lineup 🎵

🎸 The Funk Hunters 🎸
Vancouver, Canada

Borrowing inspiration from classic funk and hip-hop, The Funk Hunters are putting the soul back into electronic dance music. Having honed their craft over 500 performances in 16 countries, the DJ duo's show is a brilliant technical display of creative collaboration between 4 turntables. But words can't do justice to two friends whose passion is dance floor mastery – breathless audiences at global festivals including Coachella, Osheaga, Burning Man, Rhythm & Vines, Shambhala, Electric Forest, and Envision are the ultimate testament.

The Funk Hunters' reverence for the roots of dance has led them into unique collaborations, sometimes drawing on a cast of supporting musicians to add dimension to their signature sound. They have toured North America with iconic rapper Chali 2na of Jurassic 5, who called them «the selectah's of the century,» and they have collaborated on official remixes for Selena Gomez, Imagine Dragons, Big Gigantic, and Gramatik. The Funk Hunters’ music has amassed over 10 million streams to date across the major streaming platforms. We are so stoked to have these amazing guys headline our wonderland adveture this year!

🌎 Captain Planet 🌎
Los Angeles, CA

Fueled by an early love of Hip-Hop music, Charlie B. Wilder began DJing and making beats on a Tascam 4-track in his teens. He soon developed an obsession with vinyl records and digging for samples which led to an expanded appreciation of Reggae, Latin and African music as well as a curiosity for other styles from around the world. Today, Captain Planet’s trademark sound is a truly unique form of electronic music bridging gaps between worldwide music diasporas as well as contemporary dance music sub-genres. Captain Planet songs reveal his inspired appreciation for breaking the boundaries between genres and bridging continents through rhythm.

🎻 High Step Society 🎻
Eugene, OR

When the honeyed tones of The Jazz Age meld with hottest beat drops of the new millennium, you get High Step Society’s elixir of American Electronic Swing and Jazz. Grandma remembers when she listened to jazz giants on the old Victrola. Grandkids feel the bass deep in their chest cavity. Merging dance music from our past with sounds for the future, High Step Society features a shimmering horn section that soars over syncopated high hats and rat-a-tat snare.

🎷 Booty Brigade 🎷
Mienne x Randy Sharp x Cobra Wolf Shark
Portland, OR

Blending funky global sounds, big bass, and live brass & rhythms; this team of local all-stars including Mienne (Tectonic), Randy Sharp (BootyBumpPDX), and Cobra Wolf Shark (MarchFourth, Orgone) are guaranteed to make yer booty shake.

Between rounds of dancefloor merriment, adventure up to explore the balcony dimension. Socialize over a complimentary cup at the Mad Tea Party Lounge, take a wander through the bewitching bazaar of artisan vendors, and don't forget to hop into the photo booth with your friends for a funky family photo shoot! Especially dazzling looks will be selected throughout the night to participate in our traditional costume contest, so don't be afraid to dress to the nines. 😉🎩

We're elated to host our 5th wonderland experience at the historic Crystal Ballroom. Being a 21+ event, we will not have the center divider on the dance floor. This will allow a natural flow in between all the magic. Also, we decided to not have a VIP section so we can all be connected on the same level.

Down the Rabbit Hole has soul'd out before the night of the show every year since it's beginning 5 years ago. We recommend that you buy your tickets ahead of time if you want to secure your journey down the rabbit hole.
