Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike Debut “When I Grow Up”With Wiz Khalifa at EDC Las Vegas

Belgium super stars Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike were joined on stage by rap icon Wiz Khalifa at EDC Las Vegas 2018 for the debut performance of their upcoming single “When I Grow Up”. 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.

The Belgium-born Thivaios brothers have expanded globally as a top-draw live act after conquering Europe over the last decade. As recording artists, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike have collaborated with the likes of Gucci Mane, Ne-Yo, Diplo, David Guetta, Kiiara, legendary composer Hans Zimmer (for an official Pirates of the Caribbean track), and most recently Steve Aoki and Abigail Breslin (Oscar-nominated actress) for their momentous collaboration “We Are Legend.” The brothers have scored two No. 1s on Billboard’s “Dance Club Songs” chart and were the first-ever duo to be named No. 1 DJs in the world by DJ Mag’s annual Top 100 Poll.

Dj Khaled’s Not So Good, Very Bad Night at EDC Vegas

It should have been Dj Khaled’s time to get some good videos and photos for his Snapchat or Instagram. Instead, Dj Khaled, invited to perform on the last day of EDC Las Vegas this year, was booed off the stage after a set of sound issues, famous catch phrases, and short abrupt transitions from one 30 seconds of a track to another by his DJ.

 

The crowd could only take so much, erupting into a chorus of boos and aggravating grumbling.  Dj Khaled, dedicated to the show going on in spite of a bad crowd reaction, moved around on stage and mustered his best lines to try to win his audience over to no avail. Dj Khaled claimed on Instagram that his set had problems because of the sound crew and alleged that they cut his set short.

A video taken by Yo Swan shows Dj Khaled refusing to exit the stage when prompted. Instead of leaving, the DJ responds by playing “Jump Around” by House Of Pain.  If there had been no sound problems, there is no telling if the crowd would have eventually joined  Mr. Khaled all the way up and willingly put their hands in the air. The world may never know.
