Friday:

12:15 - LA Riots – Sahara Stage

- Get here early? You're in luck, as the Los Angeles based duo LA Riots are a great way to start any party. They've made a name for themselves through a series of banging remixes of tracks by artists like Justice, Chromeo, Nero, Tiesto, Weezer, and Laidback Luke.

1:15 - R3hab – Sahara Stage

- Right after, rising Dutch star R3hab takes the stage, bringing his signature band of bouncy Dutch beats to the valley. R3hab is signed to Afrojack's Wall Recordings and was mentored by the superstar, which resulted in a similar sound that R3hab has ran with and made his own. His track with Afrojack, 'Prutataaa', became an instant smash but he more than made a name for himself with the hit 'The Bottle Song' and bunch of huge remixes.

2:30 – Breakbot - Sahara Stage

- Breakbot is a prominent part of the French electro funk movement signed to Ed Banger labels, which is also the home to Justice He brings smooth a smooth, soulful sound to the dance floor with a throwback sound. Check out his track 'Baby I'm Yours' below.
