Linear Symmetry added to Sonic Bloom, Dancefestopia
One of Omaha’s most well-known EDM acts will make a handful of national-level appearances this year.
Linear Symmetry has joined the lineups of Colorado’s Sonic Bloom Festival and Kansas City, Mo., festival Dancefestopia. Both appearances are part of a packed summer schedule that includes Strangeland Festival in Bellevue, Neb., and tour dates across the Midwest and Colorado.
Both events are perfect fits for the EDM act — which comprises keyboard player Chris Story, drummer Andrew Alback and vocalist/violinist Huma Haq. The 11th annual Sonic Bloom, June 16-19 at Hummingbird Ranch, features similar acts like EOTO, Tipper, Sunsquabi and a host of DJ sets. Dancefestopia, Sept. 9-11 at Kansas City’s Riverfront park, boasts acts like Griz, Gramatik, Adventure Club, Excision, Borgore, RL Grime and more.
In addition, Linear Symmetry will release a new EP, Native Science, late-spring/early summer. In the meantime, see a list of current tour dates below:
