Identity Festival Preview: We Talk With Steve Aoki, Nervo, Figo, Jessie And The Toy Boys and Others
By Catherine Downes
Identity Festival recently kicked off its 20-city tour of the United States, and it comes to Hollywood Palladium this Sunday.
LA Weekly talked to many of the biggest name performers and asked them a simple question:
Why should anyone come to see your set?
“If you know my music and you like my music, that’s the number one reason, because everything else is all based around that. I’m playing all my records, I’m playing a lot of new songs. And now, specifically, on this tour, I’m doing my new live show. And this live show is such a big deal that I can’t really bring it out on any other shows. So the only time you can actually see this live show is on this tour. My bus alone is full of technicians; I got visual, I got production, [I got] structural technicians. It’s like a big ordeal. I spent a lot of time and money to make sure the end outcome is epic.” – Steve Aoki
