Their debut album, “Atlas”, peaked at number 1 in Australia, while their second album topped the Australian Dance Charts. Since then, this upbeat dance group has been working on new music and performing their top hits at live shows all over the world. You might recognize songs like “Innerbloom,” “Underwater” and “No Place” during their set. Flume has a remix of “Innerbloom” that he will likely play during his set, so you’ll be hearing Rüfüs Du Sol songs all weekend!

The Chainsmokers – 8:30 p.m. – 10 p.m. 

Since their first song “#selfie” came out in 2014, it’s hard to turn on the radio without hearing from The Chainsmokers! Drew Taggart and Alex Pall have taken over the mainstream side of EDM with songs like “Closer”, “Kanye“, “Roses” and “Don’t Let Me Down”. Their live performances are always BIG. Expect to see a lot of pyrotechnics as the beats drop. Be on the lookout for special guests.
