Opening with a galvanizing performance of his iconic hit “Turbulence,” Steve Aoki erupted the sold-out venue into buoyant revelry as flames propelled on stage before the elated audience, further emphasizing the track’s pulverizing beat.  Lining the venue from wall to wall, thousands of colorful, buoyant fans celebrated with Aoki as he delivered a brazen, interactive set, which featured some of his most iconic releases, new IDs, and tracks off  his album Paragon released that day.

Known for his showmanship on stage, Aoki was was clearly not performing “for” the crowd, but was performing “with” them, in cohesion. The energy that he exuded on stage set forth an instantaneous matched reaction in the audience, which can only be described as contagious. Brimming with high-energy, Aoki unleashed festival favorites , “No Beef,” “Boneless,” and his famous remixes,  “Pursuit of Happiness” for Kid Cudi and “Mic Drop” for BTS

Jordan Grace joined Aoki on stage in a surprise live vocal performance of “Save My Soul,” Aoki’s recent collaborative release with Afrojack under the joint moniker Afroki. The performance became another focal point of Aoki’s command over his audience as it kicked off with stirring angelic vocals by Grace and rapidly transformed into reverberating, heavy techno-leaning beats within seconds.

While some DJs tend to distance themselves from performing older music, Steve Aoki’s set had a nostalgic and endearing quality to it by reviving some of dance music’s most coveted classics. These included, “Runaway (U&I) by Galantis, “A Million Voices” by Otto Knows, and “Better Off Alone” by Alice Deejay to name a few. This further engaged the audience as the lyrics were belted out in unison while Aoki intermixed the vocals with other productions to make them sound revitalized and original.

To conclude the festivities in true Aoki fashion, the artist unleashed a myriad of sheet cakes to hurl at the crowd as people began pointing to their faces chanting, “Cake Me”  while others emerged on top of shoulders with signs and T-shirts with messages for the artist to “cake.” Further uniting the crowd, the artist smashed at least 10 sheet cakes into the faces of the audience with those being hit jumping up and down with glee while others were seen laughing as they cleaned icing off each other’s faces.  This clearly became the memorable moment of the night and redefined a boring answer to the question, “What did you do over the weekend?” 

Steve Aoki’s Heavenly Hell Tour is scheduled to take over a number of cities around the world as he previews releases of his album Paragon. The artist will also be bringing along fellow Dim Mak artists, Callie Reiff, Deorro, Nostalgix, Pickle, Cheyenne Giles, Yetep, Ookay, Henry Fong, and Wolfgang Gartner, to join him on select stops. “Heavenly Hell ” received its name from the vibrant first single featured on the album, Paragon with three-time, Grammy award-winning hitmaker NE-YO.  For additional information on the tour, please visit Aoki’s official website.
