Sea Dance Festival will be hitting Jaz Beach in Montenegro once again this summer; with the Grammy Award winning DJ Skrillex set to headline the weekend.
Last year, Skrillex performed at Sea Dance’s larger counterpart Exit Festival, which both make up the Exit Adventure. The performance Skrillex put in was regarded as one of the festivals highlights, with the DJ even choosing to alter his tour schedule and close the dance arena. This year however, it will be Sea Dance that Sonny Moore will be taking to, with his performance due on the main stage on the opening day of the festival.
The DJ and producer has a total of 8 Grammy Awards and has been charted in Forbes for being one of the highest paid DJs on the planet. Having started as a guitarist for the American rock band From First To Last, elements of this music have been brought to his dance singles, resulting in a super trashy dubstep and break beat sound. A number of these have become worldwide hits, with Bangarang and Scary Monsters And Nice Sprites being two of his most charted.
Skrillex will be joining a lengthy line up of DJs and live artists who will be playing at the best medium sized festival in Europe on what has been voted ‘Europe’s Best Beach’. Also on the line up so far are Hurts, Andy C, Lost Frequencies, My Nu Leng, Sub Focus, MD ID and Zomboy, however there are many more artists to be announced over the coming weeks.
