Beyond Wonderland Bay Area took over the Shoreline Amphitheater this weekend with a stacked lineup of talent. Everyone from Avicii, to David Guetta, to Dash Berlin took over the fantastically designed stages for the awe-inspiring two-day event. It came as no surprise that acts such as Hardwell, Calvin Harris and Arty were the talk of the festival, yet amid the Beatport chart-toppers and festival mainstays were three artists of lesser mainstream appeal who delivered some of the best and most underrated sets of the weekend.
There was no shortage of New Year’s Eve events to choose from this year, but when the two day lineup for LED’s OMFG in San Diego was released, there was no question where I was going to spend my final days of 2012. With a behemoth lineup consisting of Jack Beats, Nervo, Calvin Harris, Nero, Dillon Francis, Hardwell, Zedd, Laidback Luke and more, OMFG boasted an astounding array of talent over its two day spread. While I would happily recount my experiences from all of these tremendous artists, no words can I spare from my descriptions of Nero and Hardwell’s sets. Click past the break for a full recap of both artists’ performances.
