Portland-based electronic producer Emancipator, French beat maker STWO and Brooklyn bedroom producer Sweater Beats will headline the 2nd Annual Once Upon A Festival, June 12-14 at East Park Reservoir.

Formerly known as Foreverland, this new festival recently unveiled a massive initial lineup, a hand selected collaboration from the producers of Envision, An-ten-nae Presents, Lucidity, Enchanted Forest & Raindance. Once Upon A Festival is about a three hour drive from the Bay Area. Located on a beautiful lake, it’s the only west coast festival to feature day-time programming on a floating stage.

Additional participants on the initial lineup include San Francisco’s acid crunk act An-Ten-Nae and a special performance from the Desert Hearts Crew with guests Atish, Sabo and Bells & Whistles. Other noteworthy local acts on tap to perform include Oakland-based future bass duo Dimond Saints as well as Santa Cruz’s Smasheltooth and The Pirate. See below for the current lineup. Tickets are on sale now.

In addition to 24/7 music on Funktion 1 and Void Systems up on a Pirate Ship Stage and Tree House Stage, there will also be art, yoga, workshops, swimming and a Healing Temple Tea Lounge.
