After performing in major music festivals such as Coachella, Bonnaroo, Lollapalooza and Ultra Music Festival, headliner Big Gigantic has proven that their shows are not the typical live performance, but

rather a full audio-sensory experience. Created by the duo Dominic Lalli and Jeremy Salken, Big Gigantic constantly evolves their stage setup and lighting tricks to excite audiences and set the energetic tone for shows. Kicking off their career in 2009 with three albums in the span of three years, Big Gigantic has continued to create music and play live shows all over the world.


Canadian electronic and hip-hop music group Keys N Krates formed in 2008 and have since put out six EPs and one album. The trio has made their mark in the music industry with their bass-centric tunes and energetic sets. Their debut album, Cura, consists of nine songs and features Grammy Award nominee Tory Lanez, Ambré Perkins and up and coming 070 Shake. This year, the group embarked on their third major headlining tour “Cura World Tour” spanning across the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Germany and more.
