“The Greatest DJ of All Time,” as voted by readers of Mix magazine, is considered by many to be the Godfather of EDM. Tiësto was the first DJ to play live on stage at an Olympic Games, and also headlined the Global Citizen Festival in New York’s Central Park.

Fans will also be treated to a number of other internationally acclaimed DJs, including KSMHR, AC Slater, Sub-Zero Project, and Martin Horger.
