We’d like to thank everyone that came out to the Dim Mak Stage at the 5th Annual Sunset Strip Music Festival two weeks ago. If you didn’t get the chance to make it out here is a wrap up of what went down on that glorious Saturday night.
We had our very own Dim Mak stage at the Roxy, featuring sets by some of our favorites including Clockwork, PeaceTreaty, Yung Skeeter and Bones. Along with performances on our stage, Steve Aoki’s headlining set was full of surprises including popping bottles with Lil Jon, girls crowd rafting, and special guest appearances by Travis Barker, Will.I.Am, and Miss Palmer. If that wasn’t enough Steve ended the show by diving into a 2,000 lb cake, dedicated to his 1 million fans on Facebook. We understand this madness sounds too good to be true, so here are a few photos of the madness and we also made sure to post all the pictures of the event on our official Facebook page for all you non-believers at home.

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.”
If you haven’t been keeping up with Army of the Universe this past summer, don’t worry, here’s a refresher.

In most recent news, their unreleased track, Take Control was featured in the Adidas/ A.C. Milan jersey commercial. For a limited time only, Army of Universe has made the featured track available for free download on their Facebook page.
Now, if you’re wondering what’s next for these guys, they are continuing with the momentum with a surprise performance alongside Steve Aoki on his European Tour this summer.
