Downtown Los Angeles was the site of the Kx5 live performance this past Saturday, December 10. With more than 50,000 attendees, the first-ever headlining show at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum with electronic music act Kx5 (Kaskade and deadmau5) made history. In fact, Pollstar revealed that the show broke records landing it as the largest single-day concert event headlined by an electronic music artist ever in North America with Billboard confirming Kx5 at the Coliseum as the biggest ticketed global headliner dance event of 2022.
The two-plus hour set highlighted by Kx5 productions out now on mau5trap/Arkade including ‘When I Talk‘ with Elderbrook, ‘Avalanche‘ ft. James French, ‘Take Me High‘ and ‘Alive‘ featuring The Moth and The Flame (TMTF) as well as unreleased material. These songs and more were intertwined with special edits of each artist’s favorite selections including Kaskade’s newest ‘Dance With Me‘ with Justus, ‘Disarm You‘ & fan favorite, his collab with Skylar Grey ‘Room For Happiness‘ and deadau5 classics ‘The Veld‘, ‘Ghosts N Stuff‘ and the song that introduced Kaskade to mau5 ‘Faxing Berlin‘. The two artists closed the show with a surprise appearance from Hayla to perform their Top40 radio smash ‘Escape‘.
Over the course of the set, deadmau5 and Kaskade performed on pods that rotated and moved across the stage while fireworks and flames burst overhead. The triumphant live show from Kx5 has them joining a significant roster of musical acts to have headlined the Coliseum including the Rolling Stones, Pink Floyd, U2, Metallica, and Prince just to name a few. The show was a prestigious honor as part of the “Coliseum Forever” event series celebrating the 100th anniversary of the venue.
