Tampa, Florida, March, 2022 — Sunset Events & Disco Donnie Presents are so excited to release a truly monstrous phase two lineup for Sunset Music Festival’s 10-year anniversary at Raymond James Stadium. This is undoubtedly the biggest phase 2 lineup the festival has had to date, spanning every genre in electronic music. The festival unites over 50+ roster of artists at Raymond James Stadium North Lot over Memorial Day Weekend (May 27-29), and for the first time, extends to 3 days.
After announcing surprise headliner Skrillex earlier this month, Sunset’s phase two lineup boasts enormous talent, including heavy hitters like Illenium and Zeds Dead who are guaranteed to bring everything from tears to headbanging to the main stage. Future house dynamo’s Oliver Heldens and Tchami will both be gracing the main stage with their distinguished performances. This year’s Sunset will also mark the highly anticipated return of Swedish superstar, Alesso, who also played the festival 10 years ago, the first time Sunset was held at Raymond James.
Adding even more depth to the phase 2 lineup are a few of tech house’s finest artists, Dom Dolla, John Summit, Walker & Royce, who will each be bringing their insatiable four on the floor grooves to the festival grounds this year. All of these artists will be joining the already stacked lineup featuring Skrillex, Gryffin, Bonnie x Clyde, Liquid Stranger, LP Giobbi, Dillon Francis, Wreckno, Moore Kismet, Duke Dumont, and many more. John Summit adds, “I’m so excited to play my first festival in Tampa at Sunset Music Festival! Also, be on the lookout for a Summit afters *wink.*”
Sunset Music Festival now offers special hotel and ticket packages through Fuse. Fuse empowers event and entertainment producers to sell curated travel packages. Each package includes a 3 to 4 night hotel stay at partner hotels in Tampa, FL, and exclusive add-ons for purchase of open bar and brunch.

Since its inception, Sunset Music Festival has grown from a single-day festival with pop-up stages into the largest festival in Tampa, armed with full scale production and timeless experiences for artists and fans alike. Festival attendees can prepare for the biggest Sunset yet this year, with redesigned stages, reimagined site grounds, and refreshed festival offerings to provide new ways to experience the festival.
As a growing key player in the Florida electronic music scene, Sunset Music Festival has become one of the largest events in Tampa Bay, and the go-to festival every Memorial Day weekend.
“2022 is the biggest Sunset we’ve ever had and it marks a decade that we’ve been at Raymond James Stadium. We’ve grown from 1 day in 2012 to 3 days in 2022 featuring the biggest names in electronic music across 4 stages for Memorial Day Weekend in my beautiful city of Tampa.” – John Santoro (Sunset Events Founder)
“After 10 years, Sunset has become what we always thought it could be — an incredible Florida dance music festival attracting the best talent in the world,” Disco Donnie tells Billboard. “This is our biggest and best line up yet. It’s also special to have Alesso return to the festival since he helped us launch in our first year at Raymond James. This is going to be an unforgettable three days.”
Check out the photos below to see the evolution of Sunset over the past 10 years!
The stage and production have increased by leaps and bounds over the past decade. From a one day event with a pop up stage in 2012 to the giant Sunset stage that fans will enjoy over 3 days for the 2022 edition of the fest!

It’s wild that after 10 years Sunset is still throwing and growing this amazing festival every Memorial Day Weekend, but what a full circle moment it is to be able to bring back one of their biggest headliners from 2012 to close out the festival on the Sunset stage this year, Alesso!
Ravewear has changed dramatically from the neon trucker hats and tank tops of 2012 to the bright, fun outfits & accessories of current attire. Can’t wait to see what outfits the ravers for the 2022 edition will be sporting.
To state that the sunset at Sunset Festival has gotten better with each passing year over the past decade would be an understatement. Over the years it has become a staple for fans to celebrate and enjoy each day of the festival.
The performers at Sunset Music Festival always represent the most cutting edge rave fashion, literally, that mohawk from 2012 could cut through just about anything. The outfits have changed dramatically, but this party pose lives on.
