Since this is my first EDC Las Vegas outing May 17-19, I didn’t know Pasquale plays a game I’m going to call Name that Headliner Mix. Less than 24 hours before Insomniac Events drops the actual lineup, he plays a quickfire mix for each stage. With a mere five seconds of each artist’s track, you have to listen carefully and guess which artists will be at EDC this year.
It felt exactly like listening to “We Didn’t Start the Fire” by Billy Joel in History class and writing down as many historical events as you could catch. Without going to Reddit to double-check my answers (cause where’s the fun in that?!?), I’m just gonna tell you what I heard, and what several friends commented in the live stream. And shit dude, even the comments were hard to catch cause they were flying by!
Feel free to correct me, cause not only am I a little hard of hearing from too many nights

It went way too fast! I was so busy typing that I could barely catch any of the mainstage artist tracks! So without checking Reddit or listening to the stream a second time, who did you guys catch? Did you get any names I don’t have or disagree with any that I do? Cause I could totally be wrong! Lemme know!
