While Skrillex rocked huge crowds at this year’s Bonnaroo festival as part of the annual “Superjam,” the DJ/producer also entertained a much smaller audience with an impromptu back-to-back sunrise DJ set with Phoenix’s DJ Mija.
“After SUPERJAM a few of us went back to the tour bus to unload our gear. A little less than an hour later, [Skrillex] drove up in a golf cart with a few friends and we set out on an adventure,” writes “Drew” on NestHQ.com. “We were headed to the silent disco only to find that it had closed, but we felt bass thumping and followed the feels. We drove up to a Burning Man art car called ‘kalliope’ with 1000 plus people dancing as the sun came up. We made our way up to the dj booth where we met a girl named ‘Mija’ who said she was about to start her set and asked if Sonny wanted to B2B. At 5:45 am they started playing and this is what happened.”
Skrillex still has a pair of dates left on his current Mothership Tour, with the show landing in Boston on July 29 before wrapping up the following night in Portland, ME, on July 30.
