On Friday they dropped the lineup for this year's event, coming to Tinker Field Nov. 8-10. Among the headliners: Deadmau5, Diplo, DJ Snake, Rezz, Alison Wonderland, Afrojack, Kaskade, RL Grime, Excision, San Holo, Zhu, R3HAB and many more (including Tampa's own Blunts and Blondes). Tickets are on sale now for $199.99 and up. Click here for details.

-- Add the Ries Brothers to the list of local bands with their own craft beer. Crazy Uncle Mike's in Boca Raton has brewed a one-keg-only batch of peanut butter and chocolate stout dubbed "Ries Peace." Unfortunately, it's only available in the brewery, and only tonight. But maybe there'll be a groundswell for the Ries Brothers to bring some to the Gulf Coast. Click here.
