Who You Can’t Miss

Quintino – Discovered initially by LBL at the age of 18, LBL knew he’d found a DJ/Producer who was here to stay. In 2009 Quintino solidified his musical stature with ‘Rap Das Armas’ a track made in collaboration with Cidinho & Doca. The parapapa tune gathered millions of hits on youtube and was widely popularized over in Europe. Quintino then began to make more EDM infused music with long time pal Afrojack and has produced several big time tunes. With tracks like ‘Epic’ and ‘Selecta’ alongside his most current release, ‘Circuits’, The man is all about good times and uplifting vibes. Who wouldn’t want to catch some of that.

Bobby Burns – The guy’s been spinning since the mid 90’s and with that much experience, you can imagine the guy can do a thing or two. He officially landed in on the scene back in 2007 with ‘From Holland’ the anthem for the dutch people that year (a pretty big deal if you think of the number of successful Dutch DJ’s). Perhaps his most familiar tune to listeners here in the states is ‘Ghettoblaster’, a collaboration with Afrojack.

Under The Radar Performer

Shermanology – The Sherman family has been able to bring something a bit different to the table. The trio has arguably the best overall musical talent of anyone playing at the festival. All of them can sing, and sing well and both brothers have training in playing multiple instruments. Shermanology will provide a different type of set with tons of live vocals. They’ll be sure to close out their set with their newest release ‘Can’t Stop Me’

Who To Pass On

R3hab – Don’t get me wrong here, R3hab is an excellent DJ but if you’re headed to EDC, we suggest R3hab not be you first destination. The guy kills it, he has a formulaic style that infuses his particular sound with a multitude of dance pop tunes and if that’s what you’re looking for R3hab is your guy, but we suggest catching someone like Richie Hawtin or Nero to close out your Electric Daisy Carnival

    can’t believe the only dj you didn’t talk about is also probably the best person playing this set this day. BASSJACKERS kills it live. He’s a solid DJ, they are great remixers, he takes a note from the man who makes this whole stage possible (afrojack) and looks a little too drunk while playing, and he keeps the crowd going the entire time. I could miss everyone else at this stage, but Bassjackers is one of the few people I cannot imagine missing no matter how many times I’ve seen him. clearly he’s even under your radar.

    Urantia2-Not sure, initially they had Afrojack on the bill but he’s closing out the mainstage. Wouldn’t be surprised if the guy popped up for several of the sets though. Maybe Paris Hilton will play her iPod?! Andrew- Bassjackers had a subpar set at E-Zoo but didn’t want to suggest passing on them because they’re an entertaining DUO (2 people). Clearly.

    I know they are a production duo, but one person is clearly more active behind the decks, that is why i said ‘he’s a solid DJ, they are great remixers’. sorry they didnt kill it at ezoo – it was almost a year ago though.
