Skrillex Announces 2014 String of 'Takeovers' in Brooklyn, San Francisco
Skrillex introduced his concept of 'takeovers' -- multi-day jaunts in large cities during which the EDM artist and a score of supporting characters play various venues -- with sets in Los Angeles and New York in 2012. For 2014, he'll reintroduce multiple takeovers across the world, including stays in Brooklyn and San Francisco.
According to Radio.com, Skrillex -- real name Sonny Moore -- will kick off the mini-tour this winter, with six different shows in as many days in San Francisco Feb. 3-8. Each California show will feature support from rapper A$AP Rocky, as well as Seven Lions, Jack Beats and Alvin Risk, among others.
Two days later, Skrillex and co. will conquer Brooklyn, N.Y., with five shows stretching from Feb. 10 to a Valentine's Day (Feb. 14) show inside what's being billed as nothing more than a "secret warehouse." Just Blaze and Lunice are among the acts featured.
Additional takeovers will take place in Amsterdam (Feb. 19-23) and Barcelona (Feb. 26-March 1).
A full list of American dates and performers -- with more to be announced on the latter front -- are listed below.
