  • We wanna be punk icon Debby Friday when we grow up (but will settle for seeing her at OBEY instead).

Promising "a four-day narrative of radical sounding, a forward-thinking festival like no other," OBEY rings in year 12 from May 30 to June 2 in a host of venues around town. The date announcement also featured a teaser of its lineup, which includes New York's Eartheater, who has a Robyn aesthetic and—according to the fest— "a three-octave vocal range", Philly’s post-bounce clubshaker DJ Haram who mixes DIY noise with booty-shakers and Middle Eastern influences and Debby Friday, a musician, composer and punk icon OBEY aptly calls a "bitchpunk sound theorist."

Early bird passes can be yours for $85, and you can throw in your credit card deets and peep the full list of names at obeyconvention.com.
