AN OUTDOOR BEACH PARTY ON JULY 15TH IN LONG BEACH, CA
TICKETS ON-SALE FRIDAY, JUNE 23RD
LOS ANGELES, CA – JUNE 14, 2017 – Six-time Grammy® nominated singer, songwriter and producer KASKADE today announced Sun Soaked — an outdoor beach party to take place on Saturday, July 15th in Long Beach, CA. Tickets will be available to the general public on Friday, June 23rd following an exclusive fan pre-sale on Wednesday, June 21st available to fans who sign up at www.kaskademusic.com.
Following the success of Kaskade’s history making performance last summer at the Los Angeles Convention Center (which sold out in record time, was the biggest solo headlining show of his career and was attended by nearly 25,000 people), Kaskade is returning to Southern California to bring his fans an even bigger and better experience via a massive outdoor beach party.
“Playing at the Los Angeles Convention Center last year to nearly 25 thousand fans was one of those nights that I just can’t get past. The connection with them that night was truly once-in-a-lifetime,” said Kaskade.
He added: “For a full year, I’ve been bouncing around ideas about how to elevate this experience. There’s not a bigger room in LA. So it’s not about going bigger, it’s about going better. In my experience, nothing beats a day at the beach… so dreaming up Sun Soaked was a natural progression. I’m moving this party to the beach and I expect it to be life changing. Or at the very least – you’ll get a tan that day.”
Multi GRAMMY® Award-nominated singer, songwriter, producer, remixer and musician, Kaskade is a titan in the dance music world, and a groundbreaking innovator in the music industry as a whole. Bending the curve by which his contemporaries measure themselves, Kaskade has an unprecedented string of “firsts”. He was the first DJ to land a Las Vegas residency, the first ever solo electronic dance artist to sell-out both Navy Pier in Chicago, and the Staples Center in Los Angeles, and the first dance artist to perform and sell out at the Los Angeles Convention Center in its 45-year history with a career-defining solo headline date in front of 30,000 fans. A three-time Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival veteran, Kaskade made history in 2015 where he was the only electronic musician to headline the festival and drew the two largest crowds in its storied sixteen-year existence.
Crowned by The New York Times as “the new face of electronic dance music,” Kaskade has been bridging the gap between old school music purists and a new generation of music lovers. Relentlessly touring the world and playing to tens of millions people around the globe, he has been in the trenches for over a decade, laying the groundwork for a titanic musical and cultural shift. With nine studio albums and six GRAMMY® nominations to his name, Kaskade’s global reach is ever-expanding. He has headlined every major North American festival, and was recently inducted into Pete tong’s Hall of fame, and sold out London’s The Steelyard on his most recent UK date. His single “Fakin It” was first premiered in the UK when Kaskade went back to back with Danny Howard on his primetime “Dance Anthems” slot on BBC Radio 1.
While Kaskade’s handwriting is all over the history of electronic music, his influence today is at an all-time high. His latest full-length album, Automatic [Warner Bros. Records/Arkade] claimed the #2 spot on the Billboard Dance /Electronic Albums Chart. Automatic commanded a Top 15 placement on the U.S. Digital Chart, as well as amassing over 50 million streams on Spotify in less than a year’s time. His live set from Ultra Music Festival 2016 has garnered over 2.3 million views in a matter of months. (Watch here) Kaskade currently holds down his reign in Las Vegas with a multi-venue long-term residency with the global hospitality company Hakkasan Group, and his social media reach continues to connect him with his audience in an authentic and powerful way. Rolling Stone asserts, “Kaskade represents an intensely positive side of dance music culture”, another cornerstone in the foundation that sets him apart.
