Iconic Colorado jam band and annual Electric Forest headliners, The String Cheese Incident, took to The Ranch stage on Friday for their first of three performances of the weekend with a giant surprise up their sleeves for the night’s encore. After the quintet spent a staggering 3 hours jamming on stage, the band brought out a very special guest; the multi-talented, half-maned, Skrillex, to play two covers of The Doors on guitar to wrap up their performance. Just before taking the stage for his own headlining set at the Forest, Skrillex, who collaborated with The Doors for “Breakn’ A Sweat,” energetically joined The String Cheese Incident in delivering top-notch covers of “Break on Through (To The Other Side)” and “LA Woman.”
Despite having a solidified and highly successful music career, Skrillex never ceases to amaze his fans; he continues to prove to be not only a world renown electronic artist, but as a grab bag full of musical surprises. This weekend’s guitar and vocal performance further illustrates how the once lead singer of emo-punk band, From First To Last, turned electronic superhero isn’t afraid to flex his diverse musical muscles time and time again, using a multitude of mediums. Check out Skrillex’s surprise appearance during The String Cheese Incident’s encore at this year’s Electric Forest below!
