The surprise guest joined them during their Friday night set at kineticFIELD, the largest stage at EDC Las Vegas. Wiz Khalifa is the latest addition to Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike’s growing list of A-List collaborations. EDC 2018 is the kickoff of the internationally acclaimed duo’s jammed packed summer schedule, including their second mind-blowing residency ‘Garden Of Madness’ at Ushuaïa Ibiza.

Its three stages will be immersed in the industrial backdrop of one of Los Angeles’ major produce markets and former home of American Apparel (whose slogan ‘Made In Downtown LA’ still is prominently displayed on one of ROW DTLA’s main buildings). The revitalized historic setting makes a unique location for LA’s only major music event happening in the city this summer.

Festival curator Gary Richards (aka DESTRUCTO) recently told Hilary Hughes of Billboard (5/18), “It isn’t on ’10’ the whole time. People can come and relax; they’re not wound up from beginning to end.” He adds, “All the cool people in my life, I know through music… ‘All My Friends’ really has a deep rooted meaning.”
The festival’s corresponding line-up announcement video highlights a play on 80’s classic TV show “The Golden Girls” featuring Anna Lunoe, DESTRUCTO, Jason Bentley, Wax Motif, Chris Lake, Justin Martin, Chris Lorenzo, Deux Twins and more, with Lunoe covering its theme song.
Outside festival grounds, fans can take in shopping, restaurants and incredible murals painted by local artists throughout the complex. More information can be found at https://rowdtla.com/

Following the release of their acclaimed album The Aviary, which stacked up over a billion streams in 2017, Grammy-nominated duo Galantis debut their new single “Spaceship” featuring Uffie today on Big Beat Records.
Of the collaboration, Galantis notes, “After The Aviary World Tour, we were so pumped to get back out there with new music for the dance floor. ‘Spaceship’ takes us to the core of Galantis and our love for dance music. We couldn’t be more excited to join forces with Uffie. The first time we heard ‘Pop The Glock,’ it blew our minds… and since then, Uffie’s music has always stuck with us.”
Uffie adds, “Spaceships and summer are like milk and cookies…it’s just so right! I am thrilled to collaborate with the very talented Galantis duo on a track I love so much. It leaves me pining for the dance floor every time.”
Galantis has confirmed select headline summer tour dates including major festival performances at Lollapalooza, Governors Ball, Electric Forest and Ultra Europe. See below for a complete list of tour dates.
Galantis is the Swedish production duo Christian Karlsson (also of Bloodshy & Avant and Miike Snow) and Linus Eklöw (Style of Eye). The group’s second album The Aviary debuted as a top 10 album in 23 countries and received widespread critical praise. The New Yorker proclaimed, “Galantis sends crowds soaring with reliably mammoth melodies,” while NYLON furthered, “Everything Galantis touches is gold.” Additionally, their debut album, Pharmacy, reached No. 1 on the Billboard Dance Chart and spawned hit singles “Peanut Butter Jelly” and “Runaway (U&I),” the latter of which is RIAA certified gold in seven countries and earned Grammy nominations for “Best Dance Recording” and “Best Remixed Recording” via the Kaskade remix.
Uffie is a Los Angeles-based songwriter, musician, and fashion designer. She first made international waves via Paris with her first single “Pop the Glock” in 2006. In 2010 she released her debut album Sex Dreams and Denim Jeans, featuring the likes of Pharrell Williams, to critical acclaim. Following her feature on Charli XCX’s “Babygirl,” she headlined the Viva Phoenix festival and performed at Hard Festival 2017. Uffie is currently working on her new album in Los Angeles with executive producer Ammar Malik, J Kash and Andrew Wells; the record’s first single set for summer 2018.

Currently preparing to make his debut at EDC Vegas this weekend, Elephante is set to delight fans far and wide by dropping his next single ‘Have It All’ as well as announcing the official release date for his sophomore EP all in one go.
Teaming up with the vocalist behind his huge hit ‘Catching On’, Nevve’s stunning vocals and Wu’s exquisite dance meets pop production once again prove to be a winning combination and is sure to be a huge addition to his live sets. To celebrate the pre-order of his upcoming EP, Elephante has put together the Glass Mansion: Prologue package featuring his sensational singles, ‘The In Between’ ft. Anjulie, ‘Come Back For You’ ft. Matluck and ‘Troubled’ ft. Deb’s Daughter – available on Spotify.
“Glass Mansion is about wanting more. It’s the dream that we’re chasing – whether it’s a career, art, a relationship – and the place we build in our heads that we think will ultimately make us happy. We spend all our time constructing and improving this imagined place, redecorating, buying furniture, planning the next addition. It’s never enough and yet we keep building anyway, because we hope that once it’s done we’ll finally be satisfied,” said Tim.
The news all fans have been waiting for ‘Glass Mansion’ promises to be yet another melodic masterwork from the talented hitmaker. Spanning nine exceptionally crafted radio-ready tracks, the countdown is well and truly on to June 15th.
Time continued, “This project is about realizing that no matter how beautiful and strong what we build is, it’s ultimately fragile and one stone could bring it all down. It’s about coming to peace with the fact that it all might never be finished, and that’s okay. It’s about realizing that our Glass Mansion isn’t the answer to all our problems, and it’s about the journey of finding grace and happiness in a half-built home.”
