If we have missed anything, please comment and let us know!
New York City
Justice’s performance at the Hammerstein Ballroom is the must-see event this week. Not usually in New York more than once a year, the duo is performing a second time after their February appearances. If their stellar mix almost 2 months ago is any indication, the New York crowd should be treated to an eclectic unique set from the French group. A welcome change of pace to the typical NYC scene, this is a can’t-miss event.

Hot off their new album release The Rules of Dada, the Swedish duo reloads on the decks of XS to lay smash after smash single of electro synths and hard beats on the Vegas property. We expect the return of the normal Dada after the Electric Zoo showing, as the artists now are able to showcase their full portfolio of dance music repertoire.

Mr. Harris makes an appearance in the Windy City at Studio Paris this weekend. While his more recent tunes trend towards top 40 pop, he may be returning to his roots, as evinced by the vocals in “Iron” with Nicky Romero. Go catch him and decide for yourself.
