Excision is no stranger to high-profile back-to-back sets, but this one ought to throw his fans through a loop. The highly regarded DJ/producer has revealed that he will share a time slot with none other than Illenium at the 2019 editions of Global Dance Festival and Lost Lands Festival.
"So stoked to be doing TWO back to back sets with Illenium this summer," Excision (real name Jeff Abel) wrote in a tweet. "Global Dance and Lost Lands are gonna be insane!"
Abel launched Lost Lands in 2017, and has billed such bass music mainstays as Zeds Dead, Seven Lions and 12th Planet for both previous editions. Illenium (real name Nicholas D. Miller) is a hometown hero of Denver, where Global Dance Festival takes place annually.
The remainder of the Global Dance Festival lineup is slated for announcement today at noon MST. For more information or to purchase tickets, visit the event website.
