Speaking of classic sounds and party music, the ultimate EDM party DJ takes on Kinetic Field at 9 p.m. on Day 1 of EDC Orlando. It's none other than Steve Aoki! Grab a front row spot and take the risks of being covered in cake all afternoon!

As the first EDM artist many of us ravers ever listened to, Deadmau5 is going to make quite the impact on his Florida fans on Friday. With a whole new production and some new music, Deadmau5 will combine the classics we all love with his new sounds to give us one hell of a performance! 

Circuit Grounds

This masked DJ duo from Atlanta, GA is one that will give you the energy you'll need to make it through the rest of the night. With a heavy bass and trap sound, you'll be head banging from the jump at EDC Orlando 2019. Check out their sound below if you like a lot of bass in your pre-EDC playlist! 

CRAY - 4:25 p.m. - 5:25 p.m. 

If you love dark and eerie sounds, Cray is an artist you'll want to know. As one of the most stylish and interesting artists in the EDM realm, she will knock your socks off with her live singing as well.

Party Favor - 7:40 p.m. - 8:40 p.m. 

Party Favor will be taking center stage at 7:40 p.m. so get ready to party! With upbeat, fun and revitalizing songs off of their most recent album 'Layers' that came out in early 2019. Some of my favorite songs from the album are "Be Ok" and "Wasabi", so I look forward to hearing them and feeling the energy they creative live. Check them out below and your ears can thank me later! 

SLANDER - 8:40 p.m. - 9:40 p.m. 

Ahh, one of everybody's favorites will take the stage again at EDC Orlando this year and we're so very thankful for it. If you're a big Slander fan, you're likely excited to see them perform solo after their tour with NGHTMRE this year. Though we all love a GUD VIBRATIONS set at every festival, it will be amazing to hear the SLANDER sound shine as these friends play their biggest hits at EDC Orlando. 

Jauz - 9:40 p.m. - 10:40 p.m. 

Shark Squad, get ready because Jauz is back at EDC for the first time since 2017 and he's got a lot of new music to share. Since his last time playing EDC Orlando, he has come out with new music form his album "The Wise and The Wicked" that came out in 2018. We will also be lucky to hear "Diamonds" featuring Kiiara, which has been one of the most unique songs he's ever released. Listen to it below! 

DJ Snake - 10:50 p.m. - 12 a.m. 

Headliners, we are so blessed to be seeing DJ Snake grace the Circuit Grounds stage to close out Day 1. As one of the most talented producers of our generation, he has worked with household names we all know and love like Cardi B, Lady Gaga, Selena Gomez and more. Some of his biggest hits this year were "Taki Taki" and every song for his album "Carte Blanche". 

Day 2

Kinetic Field

Salvatore Ganacci - 5:00 p.m. - 6:05 p.m.

If you love DJ's who know how to properly entertain a crowd, Salvatore Ganacci is someone you'll need to experience. He became extremely well-known form his meme-able hit "Horse" earlier this year. He also rose to fame after he danced through his entire set at Tomorrowland 2018. Check out that Emmy-winning performance below! 

San Holo - 7:16 p.m. - 8:20 p.m. 

Another DJ with killer live performances is San Holo. He plays the guitar along to some of my favorite EDM tunes like his most well-known biz of Dr. Dre's "The Next Esipode", which is one of the best mixes of that song EVER. Check it out below to capture the San Holo vibe before his performance on Saturday. 

Afrojack - 8:23 p.m. - 9:37 p.m.

Afrojack is one of those artists that helped create the EDM industry and he has continued to keep the magic alive since the early 2000s. His quick-mix style is a tribute to his talents as he explained at WMC 2019, "I feel like if I don't mix more than 40 songs during my hour long sets, I'm just not doing my job". Check out one of his biggest hits below! 

REZZ - 9:40 p.m. - 10:30 p.m.

Dark and eerie are powerhouse female Dj Rezz's middle names. This year, Rezz has taken her live production to a whole new level and when you're a one of her sets, you can feel yourself traveling through the journey with her. She has a way of capturing the audience and bringing them into her world. Check out one of my favorite Rezz songs below!

Circuit Grounds

Blunts & Blondes - 6:00 p.m. - 7:00 p.m. 

Pay tribute to one of Tampa's favorite hometown boys, Blunts & Blondes as he brings high energy and big sounds to Circuit Grounds at 6 p.m. on day 2 of the festival.

Svdden Death - 9:00 p.m. - 10:00 p.m. 

EDC invited a lot of the dark artists this year and we assume it's because they understand the vibes we're into in 2019. So, Svdden Death is bringing his all new eerie production to the stage! You'll hear hits like "Bohemith" and "Caught in the Mosh" so be ready to get rowdy! 

Black Tiger Sex Machine - 10:00 p.m. - 11:00 p.m. 

 After I saw BTSM at Frequency Burst in 2018, I've been a huge fan! Not only do they put out encouraging words to the EDM community daily on their twitter, but they have a unique sound and live performance that is all their own. The face of BTSM, Julian, is quite the character and I know we all look forward to seeing their newest set! Check out their song, "King Cobra" below to get a taste of what's to come! 

Excision - 11:00 p.m. - 12:00 p.m. 

Calling all headbangers to Circuit Grounds! Are you ready to rumble? You better be! After a big year at Lost Lands in Ohio, Excision is likely bringing his Lost Lands performance to EDC Orlando, or at least something close to it. So get ready to rumble, throw your elbows and hold up your X's to close out day 2 of EDC Orlando. 

Day 3

Kinetic Field

Nitti Gritti - 2:20 p.m. - 3:19 p.m.

Miami native. Nitti Gritti, is bringing Kinetic Field to life to start off day 3 of EDC Orlando. Recently, Nitti Gritti has found fame on TikTok by creating beats from random things he finds during the day.

After a big year playing Lollapalooza's all over the world, RL Grime is bringing lots of energy to Kinetic Field on Day 3 of EDC Orlando.  I recently saw him at Buku last March and let me tell you, he gets the crowd involved in every set he plays. He had the entire crowd singing "We Will Rock You" back to him at Buku, and you could just feel the good vibes in the air. He creates an atmosphere you'll be lucky to experience at EDC. 

Alison Wonderland - 9:31 p.m. - 10:43 p.m.

Ladies and Gentlemen, welcome the queen of EDM to Kinetic Field! Alison Wonderland is here to bring you into her world and make you forget about everything you worry about every day at EDC. She always makes me feel like being me is more than enough, just by displaying her full self on stage every time. There's nothing like seeing a barefoot 5'1" badass women cultivating the crowd because the crowd can feel that she is putting her all into the performance. I'm telling you, if there's one set to see and feel, it's Alison Wonderland. 

Diplo - 10:46 p.m. - 12 a.m.

Many call him Daddy Diplo, but lately he prefers Thomas Wesley. We all know he's the father of party music, and quite honestly, creating a party in every atmosphere so expect a show. After an interesting year of trying out country music and extravagant country style, we don't know exactly what to expect from this set. However, we do know it's going to be a once-in-a-lifetime experience so let's welcome Thomas Wesley to EDC with open arms! 

Circuit Grounds

Wax Motif - 4:15 p.m. - 5:20 p.m.

Wax Motif has been making upbeat sounds since 2008 and I promise that you'll want your dancing shoes for this set.

If you're a fan of hip hop sounds mixed with the upbeat dance music most EDM lovers enjoy, Jonas Blue, will give you the vibes you're looking for on Day 3 of EDC. Not only does he mix hip hop into his music, but he also has a unique way of bringing people in the crowd together. If I know one thing, his music makes me feel thankful to have the moments that are created through EDM music. Whether its hugging my friends, or hugging a complete stranger Jonas Blue makes me feel appreciative for the love and compassion in the crowd at EDC. 

Nora En Pure - 6:20 p.m. - 7:20 p.m.

Female DJ's are taking over the EDM Industry this year, so EDC welcomes another kick-ass producer, Nora En Pure to Circuit Grounds on day 3 this year. She first received recognition for her 2013 single "Come With Me".
