View Full Version : MAIN STAGE EDM CLOSER PROSPECTS & PREDICTIONS (2013)

I foresee two nights of Main Stage EDM Closers this year

Deadmau5 (this will happen)
Daft Punk (crossing my fingers)
Eric Prydz (EPIC show would likely blow any of these out of the water but doubt it's feasibility due to overseas logistical nightmare + probably wouldn't even fit on
main stage?!) (could see as Sahara closer but deserves and would destroy on main with or without EPIC show)
Skrillex (I'm less excited about Skrill Jaxx on Main than the above 3 but could see it happen)

*Prodigy (don't see it happening unless/until they have a new/successful album to promote)
*Underworld (not nearly relevant enough)
*Pretty Lights (not there yet but possible in year or two IMO)
*Bassnectar (same as PL)
*Armin Van Buuren (I realize he continues to be 'crowned #1 DJ in the world' almost every year but it doesn't feel right, I'd be shocked if he closed the Main)

Am I missing anyone???

N.B. This is not a wish list, be realistic. :-)

Past Main EDM Closers:

2010 - Tiesto
2011 - Chemical Brothers
2012 - Swedish House Mafia
2013 - ???

The only way there will be two main stage EDM closing acts is if one of them is Daft Punk. Out of your list the only other two acts I could see closing the main stage are Deadmau5 and Skirllex.

In my opinion, the only two that would close out main the the same way of years past would be Deadmau5 and possibly Skrillex(unfortunately).

Daft Punk would headline if they play and I don't feel like getting in a headline vs. closing a stage argument. Unfortunately I doubt this will happen this year. Obviously I would love to be wrong.

I think the rest of the acts you posted would be closing the sahara against the mainstage edm act(s). I think pretty lights is probably the only other one I think that could possibly have enough main stream appeal to warrant the spot.

He lives in LA now, so no logistical nightmare and his EPIC stage isn't "too big" for the main stage

The more people read the idea of a board member fucking a kid, the more it emphasizes how hilariously awesome those x amount of pages were. Pretty simple.

Fatboy Slim with the setup he had for his show at the AMEX would be worthy of closing the main stage.

Watched his set on the UMF live stream from Ultra last year. Surprisingly, I'd be okay with this if he brought all the 3D stuff.

Me too. His set was pretty horrible that year. I think it had something to do with the insanely high winds.

Not a question of liking or not.. it's his ability to 'close the main stage' which isn't happening.
