Throw it back to 2013's festival season...
Welcome to the first part of EDM.com’s Throwback Thursday weekly series. Every week, we’ll dedicate a post to throwing it back to some of your favorite moments in dance music history. The first throwback post will include some of the most memorable and talked about performances during last year's festival season.
In the spirit of Ultra Music Festival, we've decided to include some sets from 2013's Ultra. We're also throwing it back to some highlights from Coachella, TomorrowWorld, Electric Daisy Carnival Las Vegas, and HARD Day of the Dead.
Who could forget Porter Robinson opening up with "The Seconds” on Ultra Music Festival's main stage last year? The producer started off mellow, then sent a wave of dominating bass over the crowd, playing tracks from artists like Helvetic Nerds, W&W, M83, Wolfgang Gartner, and much more. Fast forward to the original mix of "Say My Name," and you'll understand why we still still listen to this gem of a set.
Whether you're a Swedish House Mafia fan or not, the trio's final performance during weekend two of Ultra Music Festival is a tearjerker. Enjoy their final performance from the second weekend of Ultra 2013.
Festivals become even better when you have the Major Lazer crew to pump up any crowd. Coachella 2013 was quite a show for Diplo, Walshy Fire and Jillionaire. The group played numerous festival favorites, including "The Lion," "Original Don," and "Mashup The Dance." Throw it back to the biggest partiers in dance music and get ready for this year's Coachella.
Let's not forget when Dillon Francis and DJ Snake premiered "Get Low" at the first-ever TomorrowWorld. Dillon Francis and the crowd were pretty excited about the fireworks over at the Mad Decent Stage.
Who could forget about the owl stage at EDC Las Vegas? Dash Berlin provided the crowd with a fantastic show during his sunrise set on the third day of the festival. Who's going this year?
We'll end with one of the most talked about producers in the scene right now: Skrillex. With the release of his new album, Recess, he's on fire and will keep the momentum going with the Mothership Tour next month. Watch as Skrillex starts off his HARD Day Of The Dead set with "All Is Fair In Love And Brostep," his new album's opening track.
