Illenium kicked off his 3 day takeover at Terminal 5 strong. The whole Awake 2.0 squad came to support him including Dabin, Said the Sky, Trivecta and Far Out.
The best part about this lineup is the artists’ use of live instruments that made it such a unique electronic music experience. Besides this the artists really connected and even performed altogether during Illenium‘s set, with Dabin and Trivecta on guitar.
They brought so much energy that by the end of the night Dabin smashed his guitar into pieces. It made it even more enjoyable to be there because they were having just as much fun.
The crowd had just as much fun singing all of Illenium‘s classics at the top of their lungs like “Crawl out of Love,” “Needed You,” and “Take you Down.” These emotional songs had everyone in their feels and headbanging to it by the end. It was a much needed emotional release.
To make the night even better, Illenium announced that he would be returning to New York next year at Madison Square Garden! And it was just revealed today that he will be headlining Ultra Music Festival this year. There is so much more to come from Illenium in 2019.
