Das Energi 2022: Festival Essentials
Are you ready for Utah’s #1 music festival this weekend?! Raging since 2012, Das Energi Festival is returning to the Great Saltair for its 10-year anniversary in electric fashion! Not only will the fest include some of the biggest names in dance music, this year’s weekend will include a variety of attractions for festival-goers to interact with, including art installations, food trucks, crafts vendors, and more! To make sure you don’t miss a moment of this year’s festival, we’ve put together a Das Energi Essentials list for you, ensuring you experience all there is!
Das Energi will kick off Friday, August 12th at 5:00 p.m. and have rotating sets on three different stages through 2:00 a.m., with Deadmau5, Subtronics, and Matrix & Futurebound closing out the night. Saturday’s schedule looks the same, with the festival’s closing ceremonies being led by dance music heavyweights Excision, Louis the Child, and Chris Lorenzo. The brand new Titan mainstage, enhanced Temple of Boom, and the Vortex of the Synergy Station allows fest-goers to experience that much more high-caliber talent throughout the weekend. Let the current of Das Energi flow through you as you enjoy sets from all your favorite DJs. Check out all the set times below!
If you aren’t local, or need a ride back home after the festival, V2 Presents has got you covered! By using your 1-Day or 2-Day Shuttle Passes, you can safely and affordably ride to and from Downtown Salt Lake, the Airport Hotels, and the Festival! The provided shuttles will be running on loops to ensure you are where you need to be, when you need to be there. Learn more about the shuttle service and travel options here.

To provide a safer environment for the public and expedite fan entry, the festival will implement a clear bag policy. For more information on approved bags, permitted items, and other frequently asked questions, click here.
While the traditional living art that is the V2 Performers will once again grace the stages alongside all your favorite artists, there is even more this year for you to experience during your time at the fest. Whether you’re feeling hungry, thirsty, or in search of something unique to remember your festival experience with? The craft vendors and art installations provide an especially unique break from the music, and another outlet for the current of Das Energi to continue flowing. Created by some of the most talented artists around, these pieces will inspire you to slow down and marvel at their genius creativity, before getting back to the dance floor.
