The dubstep stage got a lot of love today as The Killabits, Vilify & Bold Equation were all added to the lineup. Today's announcement by Escapade makes it more clear (but not 100% confirmed as far as I can tell) that the dubstep stage hosted by Bassmentality will only be active on July 1st and not June 30th.
The organizers also announced Overwerk will be headlining the 'Oh Canada!' stage. Also joning him on the Canadian stage will be Marco G from Quebec City. There are plenty of talented young DJs in Canada so this will be a good opportunity for them to have their own stage and be introduced to the Ottawa crowd. Personally I'd be happy to see Raneem or Offset be added to the Canadian stage, fingers crossed!
Given how high of a billing that Excision had received on the Escapade's latest poster (putting him right below Afrojack) should indicate how important of a role dubstep will play on Canada Day. This should come as no surprise as the dubstep genre as a whole has released some of the most interesting and innovative new music in the EDM scene.
Individual tickets are now available for sale on the Escapade website: $89.00 for GA tickets and $139 for VIP passes. After the first thousand are sold the prices will go up so if you're thinking of doing this you better not think too long and get them now.
