Johnny Deezal, a 2009 graduate of SAE Institute Miami, will produce the Electric City Fest, an outdoor concert featuring Miami-based indie/electronic artists and DJs at Villa 221 in Miami on Saturday, January 11 at 3:00PM.
“My original goal behind organizing the Electric City Fest was to create a show that would feature electronic artists who I personally like and respect,” explains Deezal, who’s a founding member of the 80s-influenced electro pop band EONS. “I hand-picked the DJs and performers who will be featured at the event because I believe that they all represent the most interesting and exciting EDM sounds in Miami.”
Bands and musicians performing at Electric City Fest will include Afrobeta, Millionyoung , EONS, Panic Bomber , Jean Jacket , Red Channels , X3SR , and Dream Shore. The DJ line-up will include Dude Skywalker, Ray Milian, Phaxas, and Playsuit.
SAE Institute Miami - a creative media arts college which offers programs in Audio Technology, Electronic Music Production, and Beat Lab Production - will be the lead sponsor for and presenter of Electric City Fest.
“SAE is the perfect partner for the Electric City Fest,” says Deezal, who earned a degree in Audio Technology from SAE Institute. “The school not only offers a great environment for students who are passionate about music to collaborate and share their ideas, they also help students once they graduate. Once you’ve earned your degree, you have access to their amazing international network of industry-leading alumni who are looking to hire hard-working grads.”
Since graduating from SAE, Deezal has pursued a career in music and is currently involved in all of EONS’ creative aspects – including songwriting, producing/engineering, and performing.
"The education that SAE provided and the connections I made there really helped me to focus and organize the different aspects of my music pursuits,” says Deezal. “I not only learned the nuts and bolts of how to craft the sound of my songs and of EONS, I also was inspired to pursue entrepreneurial projects, like producing and curating the Electric City Fest.”
The Electric City Fest will be a free event and will be held at Villa 221 (221 NE 17th Street, Miami) on Saturday, January 11 from 3 to 11PM. For more info, visit the Electric City Fest Facebook page.
