South African rap pioneers Die Antwoord are one of the world’s most provocative live acts. Every live performance from them is a singular spectacle, and the setting and occasion of Day Of The Dead, is sure to bring forth something beautiful and beguiling.
The live stage is rounded out by performances from Australia’s provocative dance headliners Knife Party, comprised of Pendulum superstars Rob Swire and Gareth McGrillen, the anonymous genre-busting producer Cashmere Cat, bass house legend Jack Beats, Latin vocalist Fuego, Deadbeats own 16-year old DJ DNMO, and LA club master Thee Mike B.
Stage Two features some of the best emerging and established names in house like Repopulate Mars frontman Lee Foss back-to-back with Chicago’s own Felix Da Housecat, a live set from keyboard wunderkind Rodriguez, and DIRTYBIRD’s own Shiba San, J.Phlip, Dateless, and OMNOM. LA’s Desert Hearts will be repped by the collectives young tech-house champions Lubelski and RYBO.
Located in Downtown LA, steps away from the Metro Gold Line and just a mile from Union Station, LA State Historic Park is a 34-acre grassy outdoor oasis in the city. The park recently underwent a multi-year multi-million dollar renovation.
See what I mean? You can’t go wrong with A LIVE Justice set, Shiba San, Dateless, Lee Foss B2B Felix Da Housecat (who this old school raver has still NEVER seen) and Die Antwoord. I might have to take a trip out to California. Who’s with me?
