Incase you missed all the epic that happened this past Saturday night… I went ahead and did you a solid – Here are two amazing clips from the SNL Season Finale. Andy Samberg came in to close out the hosting duties for the season and he brought along some of his friends. Pharrell gave him a hand with a new digital short named “HUGS” and Lil Jon was able to help them ‘Turn Up To Death!’ w/ a new video about the life a DJ lives behind the decks with a video called “When Will The Bass Drop?” – Check them out below and let us know what you think!

From MTV.com:
While a late evening shower may have dampened the ground at the launch of Boom, Belgium’s Tomorrowland Festival, the magic of the day wasn’t hindered by it in the very least. If anything, the 60,000 fans in attendance Friday probably welcomed the cool down.

Banging sets by Joachim Garraud & Clockwork, coupled with the ecstatic raging of a few thousand fans, turned Steve Aoki’s tented Dim Mak stage into a sauna. Of course, when rapper Lil Jon walked out and “Welcomed all the ladies and gentlemen” to Tomorrowland, before launching into “Turbulence,” mayhem ensued. And speaking of raging – notable in Aoki’s set – festival goers were treated to a brand spanking new bomber of a collab with Knife Party. Fittingly, when we left Dim Mak for the day, Indonesian rising star Angger Dimas (who revealed to MTV News that a brand new Boys Will Be Boys track with Tiësto is coming soon) had just launched into “Internet Friends.”

ABOUT DIM MAK RECORDS & TOURING/EVENTS:

In just the past few years, Dim Mak has created its touring department in the same tradition of spanning genres and doing what feels right. In the US, Dim Mak has partnered with festivals such as Hard, Neighborhood, and Pacific in Los Angeles as well as produced its own stage at Insomniac’s 2010 Electric Daisy Carnival featuring Armand Van Helden, Travis Barker and Atrak, Steve Aoki, and more. Internationally, Dim Mak has quickly become a global force in the festival circuit including stages at Beatpatrol in Vienna, Get Loaded in London, Playground in Jakarta as well as We Love Sounds/Winterland Soundsystem across Australia in 2010 and most recently Future Music Australia 2011. This summer Dim Mak continues that tradition at the upcoming Optimus Festival in Lisbon, Tomorrowland in Belgium and Beatpatrol again as well as the first nationally touring Electronic music festival in the US, IDENTITY.
