Five time #1 DJ in the world, Armin van Buuren, is bringing his five hour Armin Only Intense world tour to North America for the first time ever, starting April 11th at Madison Square Garden in New York City. The one-of-a-kind show will be conducted from behind a 76-foot DJ booth by Armin van Buuren himself, along with a myriad of acrobats, dancers, singers, and live musicians like Miri Ben-Ari to help push the powerful visuals, pyrotechnics, and theatrics over the top.
The Worlds Apart Tour could not be a more fitting title for an artist like Seven Lions, whose electronic productions can range anywhere from as bright as the sun, to as spine tingling and mysterious as the dark side of the moon. With each and every track he makes, Seven Lions explores a new and different corner of the musical galaxy, showcasing how creative and imaginative his brand of beautiful bass music is.

Skrillex is bringing the Mothership Tour back this summer, and thanks to the wonderfully innovative--albeit a little nutty-- people at Red Bull, this year's revamped tour will bring a fresh new vibe to this bass-crazy Alien Ride. With support from Dillon Francis, DJ Snake, What So Not, and Milo & Otis joining the tour's lineup, the music will be just as big as Skrillex's new stage production.
