EDM Head Liners Include
aka Nick van de Wall is a Grammy Award-winning Dutch DJ from Spijkenisse. With Hits like Take Over Control, BangDuck, and No Beef he always brings the moisture. See him at Stereo Live Last year – HERE
Thomas Wesley Pentz, is a Philadelphia-based American DJ, producer, and songwriter. We love his all his production and how versatile he can be from Busta Rhyme hooks to touring with Tiesto then coming right back and collabing with Skrillex then remixing Kanye West’s Gold Digger Song.
Pretty Lights is the musical vision of the ultra-versatile Colorado based producer Derek Vincent Smith. With Nocturnal, ID fest, and others under his belt, I can say personally he is AMAZING everytime. SoundCloud
Under Afrojack’s label he has rapidly become a household name on Beatport’s chart. Having never seen him live but love all his latest songs with Tiesto, Diplo and Laidback Luke I am looking forward to this guys!
Made up of DJs Diplo and Switch, the two were introduced after working with M.I.A. These guys just realized some amazing music you can find on their myspace page. Songs that caught our attention back in 2009 was Don De Floor
