If someone would have told us two years ago that a marshmallow helmet-donning DJ would be the hottest thing in 2017, we would have never believed it.
While we still aren’t entirely sure who’s behind all of the aural confections—his true identity is rumored to be Chris Comstock (aka Dotcom)—Marshmello has quickly become one of the biggest names in EDM. Just this year alone, the masked crusader has performed at festivals like EDC and Coachella. He signed to Skrillex’s OWSLA label and has dropped plenty of candy-sweet earworms, like February’s “Chasing Colors” with Ookay and Noah Cyrus.
If that wasn’t enough, Marshmello’s somehow found time among all his jet-setting to put in work in the studio. Last week, the DJ and producer teased fans with a series of tweets about his recent collaborations with Blackbear, Khalid and Selena Gomez, and he also debuted an unreleased record with Demi Lovato at this year’s Coachella music festival.
Haven’t witnessed Marshmello live? Head to YouTube to watch his fully loaded set from this year’s Tomorrowland festival in Belgium for a taste, then go to straight to Intrigue on Thursday, followed by Encore Beach Club on Friday, for the real deal. The Wynn Nightlife resident flies to Canada for the Wayhome Music and Arts festival before returning to XS on Sunday for his last Vegas set until September.
Don’t think for one second that means Marshmello is taking a break. In between his Vegas runs, the DJ will embark on a European tour. And hopefully, he’ll drop some of those tasty treats he’s been mixing up along the way. Marshmello at Intrigue at Wynn, July 27; at Encore Beach Club, July 28; at XS at Encore, July 30.
