#3 Zedd

If you’re looking for a set that is jam packed with high-energy singalong tracks, look no further. With multiple chart topping tracks (“Clarity”, “Stay the Night”, “I want you to know”) and a Top Dance/Electronic Album (True Colors), Zedd will provide you with a most radio-friendly performance.

#2 Matoma

Hailing from Norway, Matoma’s signature tropical house sounds will put a perfect ending to your summer. With notable tracks such as “False Alarm”, “Running Out”, and “Stick Around”, Matoma has really broken into the mainstream EDM scene. Check him out at the festival on Sunday.
