A food festival in honor of everyone's favorite hot sauce makes perfect sense. In fact, it's happened before

But an EDM festival in honor of the spicy condiment? 

Well, it's happening in San Jose, CA on August 30th. According to the website, festival attendees can expect two city blocks filled with "three stages of electronic dance music, four bars and 120 Sriracha-infused dishes." Local DJ John Beaver (who played at Coachella earlier this year) has curated an awesome Bay Area-centric line-up, and here it is:

When you think about it, it's a match made in festival heaven, and not just because hot DJs pair well with hot food. Spicy peppers contain capsaicin, the compound that gives them that kick. The spicier the pepper, the more capsaicin, and the more capsaicin, the more endorphins (pleasure hormones) are released. Your heart races, your taste buds tingle, and you get a blast of bliss...once the initial shock of the spice calms down.

So when that bass drops, take a bite of some spring rolls doused in Sriracha. Boom. Instant rooster rave.
