Major Lazer at Aragon Ballroom

July 28, 2016
Diplo, Jillionaire, Walshy Fire

Since their formation in 2008, Major Lazer has become one of the most exciting and eclectic names in electronic music. When a group features hot DJs like Diplo, Jillionaire, and Walshy Fire, you know the music is going to be sick as hell. The group have released 3 studio albums, 3 EPs, 4 mix albums, 5 mix tapes, and 18 singles in the span of their career. Their 2015 effort, Peace is the Mission, was an even bigger success for the band as it reached no. 3 on the Independent Albums Chart and no. 1 on the US Dance/Electronic Albums Chart. The group are even going beyond music, with their 2015 animated series Major Lazer on FXX. They’re currently working on their next record, Music is the Weapon, which has no official release date. Now, you have the chance to check out Major Lazer when they play at the Aargon Ballroom on July 28th as part of the Lollapalooza after party series. Towkio and Slumberjack are also slated to appear.

Time: 7:00 pm

Tickets: Get ‘Em
