While it might’ve been pure coincidence, ILLENIUM is commemorating the fourth anniversary of his iconic sophomore album Awake with the full reveal of his aptly named destination event, Ember Shores. First announced in April to serve as a three-day celebration for Fallen Embers, ILLENIUM’s own festival now has an exhaustive lineup attached as it prepares to debut in Cancun, Mexico from December 3 – 5.
Including a trio of appearances from the festival head himself, Ember Shores’ bill looks to make for a worthwhile grand unveiling, starting off with Said The Sky, 3LAU, and Big Gigantic as its three sub-headliners. Ember Shores’ undercard is a treasure in itself, with ILLENIUM tapping one of Dancing Astronaut‘s Artists to Watch in 2021 Nurko and one of Dancing Astronaut’s Supernovas HALIENE, as well as Blanke, Ray Volpe, William Black, Jason Ross, Wooli, Dr. Fresch, and more.
For anyone that was unable to secure a room upon the festival’s initial announcement, a limited number of spaces will be opened to the general public here at 12PM ET on September 23 due to defaulted payment plans.
