EDC is arguably one of the most important weekends for the electronic festival scene. The top performances, witnessed by, in many cases, hundreds of thousands of people live, and more via live stream set the bar for EDM DJ sets. The massive three day festival, which takes place annually in Las Vegas, has historically been seen as a platform for top acts to unveil new styles and tease unreleased tracks. Here’s our list for the most anticipated performances this year:
On Friday night, Australian tech house pioneer Fisher is scheduled to play from 12:00 to 1:30 AM. The artist’s track “Losing It’ was among the most played tracks of last year, and has skyrocketed his career to new heights.
The Toronto based duo’s career soared to new heights after the massive success of their 2018 hit “Body”. Since then, the pair has rocked crowds at festivals around the world. They perform at 8:15 at Kinetic Field Saturday night.
After tweeting that she’d play multiple new tracks in her set, presumably from her upcoming EP – there’s a lot of hype for Rezz’s set! Her one hour set kicks off at 12:30 AM at Circuit Grounds.
Over the past few years, the Dutch guitarist-producer-songwriter has built up a loyal fanbase. The chill, emotional tone of his tracks like “everything matters” and “Light” have made him a staple of the “future bass” genre. He’ll perform Kinetic Field at 11:00 on Sunday.
Tchami x Malaa
Future house founder Tchami teams up with masked DJ Malaa to bring house fans a set that’s sure to be unforgettable. The pair are set to perform at 12:15 Sunday night at Cosmic Meadow.
The DJ-producer is already well known for his dance floor ready hits like “Bap U” and “Booty Loose”, as well as his unique remixes for other DJ’s like Dillon Francis. The DJ, who’s increasingly become a well-known name among EDM fans, is scheduled to perform late Friday night at the Cosmic Meadow stage.
Known for their massive big room hits, W&W is sure to be a crowd favorite when they perform at Kinetic Field at 9:30 Saturday night.
Over the past few years, Deorro has become a pioneer of the Melbourne-bounce genre. His track “Five Hours” took the world by storm when it was released in 2014. The vocal version of the track, featuring Chris Brown, has accumulated an impressive 260 million views on YouTube. He will be performing on Friday from 9:30-10:40 PM at the Kinetic Field stage.
David Guetta was one of the very first DJs to successfully merge the EDM and pop genres. Teaming up with a-list pop artists like Sia and Justin Bieber, he’s spent the better part of ten years crafting hit after hit. He will perform at the Kinetic Field stage Friday night from 12:00 to 1:30.
