Support the independent voice of Dallas and help keep the future of Dallas Observer free.

Last year, the annual Dallas EDM festival known as Meltdown celebrated its tenth anniversary by bringing Moby in to headline its event, which was held at the Lizard Lounge.

This year, alas, no Moby (although he will be in town on October 4 for a show at the Palladium). But, even so, in go-'round No. 11, the folks behind the event, Prototype Industries, are proving that they have no intention of slowing things down.

This year's event, which will take place at the Palladium Ballroom on Saturday, November 21, will boast an all-star lineup featuring renowned DJs David Guetta, Kill the Noise and Morgan Page. Oh, and also? Longtime Kanye West DJ, A-Trak, plus hipster-hop favorite, Kid Sister.

In a post over on the Dallas Dance Music forum this morning, the promoters also indicate that more additions to the lineup are still to be announced--which is pretty sweet. But so far? So good.

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
