20 years, 20 cities.

Pushing full steam ahead, Dim Mak is bringing the party to its own 20th Anniversary Stage at Electric Zoo: Wild Island this Saturday, September 3rd over Labor Day Weekend with sets from label head Steve Aoki, 3LAU, Rain Man, SBCR aka The Bloody Beetroots, ETC! ETC!, WatchTheDuckand Max Styler. Following the show, the festivities continue at Space Ibiza for the official Dim Mak Electric Zoo After Party, where special surprise guest DJs will spin til 4AM.
Tune into Sirius XM’s Electric Area channel this Saturday beginning at 2PM PST / 5PM EST for a live broadcast of the show and then again on Labor Day for a full rebroadcast alongside interviews starting at 8 AM PST / 11 AM EST.
The Dim Mak crew has had quite an eventful summer since Billboard first announced the stage in conjunction with the release of Bright Lights and 3LAU’s “Runaway” remix package. Rain Man’s chart-topping single “Bring Back The Summer (feat. OLY)” hit #1 on the Mediabase Dance Chart and he released the official music video (view here). It isn’t the only video buzzing right now, as Aoki recently released his Netflix documentary, I’ll Sleep When I’m Dead. Additionally, Aoki’s club-oriented EP 4OKI, which saw him team up with Dim Mak cohorts Autoerotique, MORTEN, Shaun Frank, and Reid Stefan, peaked at #5 on iTunes Dance releases. The EP, alongside its stunning visuals, drew praise from The Wall Street Journal, Harper’s Bazaar, Nasty Gal and Billboard, who called the EP cuts Aoki’s “most daring musical offerings in years.” Reflecting on 20 years of Dim Mak, Aoki is honored to bring the label to Electric Zoo this year:
“New York has always held a special place in my heart, and it makes me proud to bring our Dim Mak 20th Anniversary to the EZoo stage. I started Dim Mak Records in my college dorm room in 1996 as a punk/hardcore label, and since then have evolved the roster to include different sounds from artists from all over the world. Can’t wait to bring our madness to the Electric Zoo x New York family!” – Steve Aoki
Join Aoki, 3LAU, SBCR, Rain Man, ETC! ETC!, Watch The Duck, and Max Styler on Saturday, September 3rd at Electric Zoo in New York as they bring Dim Mak to New York City for a night to remember.
