A club DJ is one thing. A radio DJ is another. And serving as the DJ for a music festival like iHeartRadio is a different animal altogether.
“For me it’s such a huge look,” says Prostyle, who’s held the gig since the festival launched in Las Vegas five years ago. “It’s such a unique show to be part of. All the biggest artists in every genre are going to be performing. I do a lot of big events, but it’s always something specific—a hip-hop concert or a Top 40 event or an EDM festival. This one touches everybody, and they are bringing out the legends like only iHeart could do.”
Indeed, the performers for this year’s fest—September 23 and 24 at T-Mobile Arena—include U2, Britney Spears, Sting, Ariana Grande, Usher and Pitbull.
Prostyle, a SKAM Artist DJ who will also touch down at Daylight and Tao Beach this weekend, hosts one of the most popular shows on Power 105.1 in New York City, and he’s excited to be back in Sin City. “As soon as people land in Vegas they go kinda crazy, and I love that energy. The party scene in Vegas is my favorite, and the clubs are always fully loaded.”
Expect to see Prostyle hit the Strip more frequently, since he’s working on new music with artists like Jeremih, Ne-Yo, Sean Paul and Daddy Yankee. His full-spectrum sound is another reason why he’s the man for such diverse gigs.
“I think I just represent what iHeart brings to the table, which is a cross of all types of music,” he says. “I’ve never been the type of DJ stuck in one lane. Hip-hop, R&B, island music, old-school classics, EDM ... I like to mix it up, and I’m always dealing with a mixed crowd.” Prostyle at Daylight at Mandalay Bay, September 23; at Tao Beach at Venetian, September 24.
