He’s the man behind Dim Mak Records, responsible for launching the careers of some of the most influential acts of the past decade including: Bloc Party, Bloody Beetroots, Klaxons and MSTRKRFT, to name a few. Since founding his label he’s stepped into the limelight himself as a DJ, artist and producer remixing the likes of Michael Jackson, The Killers, Robin Thicke, Lenny Kravitz, Drake and more. Cutting loose on stages across the US, Europe and around the globe, Steve Aoki is now making his way to Wollongong on Saturday, November 26th to rip up the decks in a 90min set at MTV Beats and Eats.
Joining Aoki on the MTV Beats & Eats stage will be platinum selling, EMA award winner, Savage, Gold Coast producer PACES and Kiwi sensation MAALA with more international and local acts to be announced soon.
In addition to the main stage performances, DJ and chef, DJ Cutloose, will be simultaneously dishing up killer beats and mouthwatering eats in the Smith’s Chips Summer BBQ area throughout the day. MTV Beats & Eats, proudly presented by Smith’s Chips, will host main-stage performances, delicious food stalls and bars and a whole bunch of exciting activities you would only expect from MTV.
