Skrillex is spending February playing multiple nights in four major markets in the U.S. and Europe for another round of “Skrillex Takeovers.” The producer/DJ is bringing along a group of “diverse, unexpected” acts he’s hand-selected.
The 2014 trek follows the Takeover shows Skrillex put on two years ago in Los Angeles and New York City.
“I’m excited to do another round of Takeovers,” Skrillex said. “This time we chose four cities that I really think represent and support great art and rad artists: San Francisco, Brooklyn, Amsterdam, and Barcelona. I can’t wait to play some new stuff for you guys.”
The previous Takeovers boasted “rotating stages, people dressed as superheroes, costumed dancers, blindfolds, and an unprecedented roster of surprise guests.” An announcement promises the next shows are “only going to get better.”
