With artists like Kaskade, AfroJack, and DJ Shadow; the Identity Festival is going to be the concert experience of the year! The festival is on tour now taking on twenty different cities between now and early September. According to sources, Kaskade wasn’t just another performer at the festival; he actually helped in making this vision become a reality.
He told Allison Stewart of the Washington Post “They came to me early on, and I loved the idea, just the fact that it was such a huge idea, big in scope and size. I’m like, “I’m sold. I want to be in, but I want to make sure we get cool people involved, and I don’t 100% trust you guys. Here’s a list of the top 50 guys in my mind. Let’s try to get as many of them involved as possible.” This is Live Nation’s first foray into electronic music and I just wanted to make sure they understood the scene, the genre and where we were coming from. It’s just the controller I am, I guess.”
We’re glad that Kaskade too charge because Live Nation wouldn’t have been able to conceptualize the types of acts that were needed at an electronic music festival without him. And the great thing is that some of the festival tickets are priced as low as $30. Before you check out this party; make sure you check out our party too.
