“IDENTITY” // THIS SUMMER’S TRAVELING ELECTRONIC MUSIC FESTIVAL ANNOUNCES THE HOLLYWOOD PALLADIUM AS THE NEW VENUE FOR LOS ANGELES METRO AREA SHOW SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 4

IDENTITY, presented by SKULLCANDY, will be relocating to the heart of Hollywood to take over the Palladium! Fans have communicated that the San Bernardino venue is too far out for the holiday weekend commute and traffic expected. The festival is excited to be in the thick of Hollywood for IDENTITY in its inaugural year.

Still happening Sunday, September 4, the show will feature performances inside and around the historic venue from Pretty Lights, Steve Aoki, Etienne de Crecy, Booka Shade, Pete Tong, Jessie and The Toy Boys, The Crystal Method and more. IDENTITY will be using for the festival area the main Palladium stage as the Skullcandy Main stage and the entire Palladium parking lot for the Rockstar Dim Mak stage. The Advent Stage is TBD at this time.

Steve Aoki Interview with Miami New Times

Tim Gauthier

Miami New Times managed to get Steve on the phone for a Q&A while on tour for Identity Festival…Steve gives some insight on his live show, the Dim Mak stage, and the Dim Mak pop-up shop.

“Oh, yeah. On this tour, I’m debuting my live show. And I’ve been working on it for the last three or four months. It’s just structurally and visually awesome. The lighting and what I brought to the stage is something unique that I can only do on a tour like Identity.”

Dim Mak’s Touring/Events Highlighted In Pollstar’s IDENTITY Festival Feature

Tim Gauthier

Below are some excerpts from the Pollstar write up.

Yes, that’s right. Dim Mak as in Dim Mak Records & Touring/Events, the company launched by Aoki in 1996 when he was a student at University of California Santa Barbara. While Aoki’s name was included in the original lineup announcement, the addition of Dim Mak is a recent development.

“The lineup for the festival is amazing and I’m excited to have a Dim Mak stage on the Identity tour,” Aoki said in a statement. “We have done festival stages mainly outside of America and this will be a crucial tour for Dim Mak to be traveling across over 20 cities in the U.S.”

ABOUT DIM MAK RECORDS & TOURING/EVENTS:

Launched in 1996, by then UCSB student Steve Aoki, with a 7 inch from obscure SoCal hardcore ensemble Stickfigurecarousel, Dim Mak has since put out over 200 releases and broken artists from Bloc Party to The Kills, Battles, The Gossip, Klaxons, The Bloody Beetroots, MSTRKRFT and more. 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.
