On May Fourth, we’re joined by the talented supergroup Ultrasloth (Duffrey, bioLuMigen and kLL sMTH) for another in the round 360 experience in the main ballroom. The group, no stranger to Cervantes, having played here a handful of times, has also previously played Sonic Bloom, Infrasound, and The Untz.

Fans can expect a diverse blend of the artists’ signature sounds at this boiler room-style set with reinforced Funktion-One sound. The audience will also be treated to sets from Chris Karns, Dizzy!, Xenolinguist, and a debut set from Rendr (Templo’s new project).

Next up, fans will be treated to a heavy-hitting bass set from Denver’s very own Jaenga. Known in the festival circuit for his purple Jaenga bus, which has hosted some of the biggest names in bass music and rising up-and-comers, Jaenga takes center stage for his first time headlining SHIFT on May 11. Kyral X Banko, Blurrd Vzn, and Gallium will support.

On the 18th, Defunk returns to Cervantes Masterpiece Ballroom for another dirty, funky, bassy set. The Sponges, MIDIcinal, and Father Figure will support in the main ballroom.

Need a break from the bass? Fans can step over to the Other Side for something on the chiller side and a little more instrumental from Colorado-based 3420. Tickets allow access to both sides of the venue! Wicker’s Portal, Oomah, and EOS will support on the Other Side.
