Fans of motorsports and electronic music alike will have the chance to experience an extremely rare performance this summer. 

Later this year, GRIDLIFE Midwest will return for another action-packed outing celebrating electronic music and adrenaline-fueled racing. While they've hosted some incredible artists in past iterations, organizers have outdone themselves by announcing a performance by French synthwave pioneer Kavinsky. According to a press release, it'll be his first in the U.S. in nine years.

The elusive "Nightcall" producer's persona and songs are inspired by high-speed driving and flashy cars, making him an extremely exciting and appropriate fit for this year's fest.

Alongside the rare performance, GRIDLIFE Midwest boasts a strong lineup, replete with electronic talent. Headlining the three-day event is none other than Kaskade, who will be joined by JOYRYDE, Blanke, Grabbitz, Wavedash and more. More artists are set to be announced in the near future.
