Perched atop a hulking space-age LED booth, Scottish DJ/producer only took to the mic occasionally during a hit-packed headline performance, which included recent releases "This is What You Came For" and "How Deep is Your Love" alongside more classic material like "We Found Love" and "Feel So Close."

With fans braving the rain high up in the Nikon at Jones Beach Theater's grandstands singing along to every song, the moment recalled Axwell & Ingrosso's memorable headlining performance last year. As a flurry of pyrotechnics signaled his set's end, the Hot 100 Stage faithful made their approval known in a shower of cheers.
