Tiesto @ Home Depot Center, 10/8/11
With the prevalence and rise of events such as the Electronic Daisy Carnival, electronic dance music has started to finally reach a true audience here in North America. Massive tours from the likes of Deadmau5 and Daft Punk have trailblazed the scene and brought an entire new audience to the genre.
Capitalizing on this trend, the "World's Biggest DJ" as proclaimed by DJ Magazine, Tiesto performed last Saturday at the Home Depot Center in what was billed as "the Largest Single DJ Event in North American History." 26,000 people danced and shuffled (don't ask, it's what the kids are into), to the sounds of the Dutch DJ as he provided a massive two and a half hour set, complete with pyro and impressive light show. Opening in support were Diplo, Dada Life and Porter Robinson.
