Thread: MAIN STAGE EDM CLOSER PROSPECTS & PREDICTIONS (2013)

  1. #1

    Default 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

    Rest Of The World EDM Headliners does not equal American EDM Headliners. The only place I ever hear anyone talk about that guy is this board.

    Yeah, that's what the "new" tent is, a tent dedicated solely to shit that absolutely no one outside of this board has ever heard of nor would ever tolerate listening to for more than two minutes. Curated by My Bloody Valentine.
