Top DJ and EDM performers headed to San Diego in January include Tiësto, Purity Ring, MitiS, 3LAU and Sikdope.

1.6 WeAreTreo


Trevor Shawn, Ace Future and Spencer Regan just remixed Drake’s “Fake Love” after gaining traction with their take on Twenty One Pilots’ “Ride.” The L.A. trio will make it back-to-back Fridays in San Diego after playing INFINITY NYE here last week.


1.12. Purity Ring

 @ Bang,

Canadian electronic duo Megan James and Corin Roddick last released a studio album in 2015. So maybe, just maybe, there’s a chance they’ll tease some upcoming new music in this DJ set. One can hope.

1.13 Tiësto


The legendary Dutch DJ founded AFTR:HRS Records this year, just remixed DJ Snake and Justin Bieber’s “Let Me Love You,” and has been through San Diego a few times in the past few months. It just never gets old.

1.14 Spag Heddy

@ Bassmnt,

The Spanish DJ’s remix of The Chainsmokers’ “Don’t Let Me Down Feat. Daya” is approaching 2 million plays on Soundcloud, while his song “Permanent” has over 10 million of them on DubstepGutter.

1.14 DJ Ruckus


Full disclosure: This is the dude who went straight-up street fighter (away from the club so they could really throw down, no less) with Tyson Beckford over Australian model Shanina Shaik this year. Dude’s not bad, but really, we want to see round two.

1.19 Felix Jaehn

@ Bang,

The 22-year-old German house DJ and producer scored a big hit this year with “Bonfire feat. Alma.” He makes a stop at Bang Bang as part of his 2017 North American Tour.

1.20 Bingo Players


Dutch DJ/producer Maarten Hoogstraten continues on under the moniker he once shared with collaborator/co-founder of Hysteria Records, Paul Bäumer. Since Bäumer’s death in 2013, Hoogstraten has released a handful of singles and remixed the likes of Gorgon City and Hardwell. He appears as part of the duo’s 10th anniversary tour.

1.20 MitiS

@ Bassmnt,

Classically trained as a pianist, Philadelphia-based DJ Joseph Torre released his dubstep EP, “Foundations,” earlier this year. His latest single, “Frameworks,” is out now.

1.21 DJ 4B

@ Bassmnt,

The New Jersey-based DJ has released tracks on Diplo’s Mad Decent and Steve Aoki’s Dim Mak Records. In conjunction with Conspire Studios, he just released a music video for his track “Juice.”

1.26 Helena Legend + Kennedy Jones


The British-born, Australia-raised, L.A.-based DJ just released her three-track “No Explanations Part 1" last month and teams here with the bearded Los Angeles DJ responsible for recent remixes of Calvin Harris and Rilan.

1.27 3LAU


New York-born, Vegas-based DJ Justin Blau uses a 3 for the B in his stage name (still goes by Blau), but don’t hold that against him. He’s remixed everyone from Zedd and The Chainsmokers to Adele and Shawn Mendes, and he gives all kinds of money to charity.

1.27 Sikdope

@ Bassmnt,

Fresh off of a winter tour with Marshmello and Ookay, the Polish DJ/producer recently remixed his 2014 track with Borgore, “Unicorn Zombie Apocalypse."      

1.28 Joe Maz

@ Parq,

Billboard panel reporting member and creator of remixes for artists ranging from Kanye and Coldplay to Daft Punk and Maroon 5, the Miami-based DJ continues his Parq residency.

1.28 Manufactured Superstars


The Denver-based DJ duo of Brad Roulier and Shawn Sabo have been known to dress up in spacesuits and play with a gigantic teddy bear on stage. They’ve hosted artists such as Cee-Lo, The Crystal Method, and Lil Jon at their hometown “Superstar Saturdays” shows.
