How to Prepare for Moonrise Festival 2022, Set Times Announced


Set times for Moonrise Festival are officially out! It’s time to plan out your weekend schedule with your rave squad. This year’s event will be one for the books since the last Moonrise took place in 2019.

Moonrise Festival will be taking place at the Pimlico Race Course in Baltimore, Maryland on August 6th and 7th. This year’s edition will be a special one as it was bought out by Insomniac, which is the premier event organizer for all across the United States. Expect to see a better and improved version of the festival if you’ve been attending the event throughout the past years. Not only that, this year features some serious talent as always like Tiesto, Excision, Zedd, Zeds Dead, Fisher, and many more. Secure your tickets here before it is too late!

While we patiently wait through the final few days, here are a few things to take note of before the festival.


Many will be traveling from in state and out of state to the festival. For those planning to drive to the venue, there is 2 day festival parking and premier parking tickets still available. One day parking tickets are a first come first serve basis the day of and only cash payment is accepted. Secure your parking tickets in advance here. Plan out your travel accordingly so you don’t have to deal with rideshare surcharges day of!


City shuttles will be providing round trip transportation from various parts of the city. Check out the shuttle locations and schedule here.


It can be quite the hassle to carry around your merchandise, backpacks, and other rave accessories. Luckily, Moonrise has lockers to rent here. The best part yet is that they come conveniently with phone chargers to juice up!


Baltimore heat is no joke! With the festival taking place in the middle of the summer, it is vital to drink lots of water. Humidity is sky high in August and dust from the race course can take a toll on our bodies. There will be water stations all over the festival grounds so make frequent trips there if you have to.


There will be food & beverage stands spread across the festival grounds. Be sure to stop by to get the fuel you need to party through the weekend. Credit, debit, Samsung Pay, Apple Pay, and Android Pay will be accepted.


Be sure to check out all the stages at the Festival as each one provides a different vibe. You can step into the world of house music at the solar tent. Or if your necks need a little exercising, headbanging away all night at the Lunar stage is for you. Then we have the stellar stage where you find your typical mainstage vibes that you love and enjoy.


After the festival is over, you and your friends may want to grab a bite to recharge from the night. Or, you can hit up one of the after parties to keep the night rolling! AC Slater is headlining the official afterparty at the Power Plant on August 6 and Tchami is taking over the venue the following day on August 7.
