Lollapalooza Spotlight: Kaskade
Ryan Raddon (aka Kaskade) will be one of the headliners of this year’s Lollapalooza festival. He will be performing in front of thousands of fellow Chicago natives as well as thousands more international fans who will be travelling to “The Windy City” for this year’s festival. Kaskade is a globally renowned producer having performed thousands of venues around the world. In fact his first residency was Smartbar here in Chicago’s own Wrigleyville neighborhood, maybe you’ve seen him perform there as he holds it dear to his heart (occasionally Raddon will return and perform a set at the small northside venue). From tiny neighborhood basement club to 250,000 fans at Electric Daisy Carnival, Kaskade’s music is recognized everywhere he goes.
Kaskade headlined Coachella 2012 opposite stage of experimental rock legends Radiohead. He also headlined Ultra Music Festival 2012 and Electric Daisy Carnival 2012. It is safe to say it has been a busy year for the DJ/Producer. Kaskade has done collaborations with several other artists/producers including Joel Zimmerman (aka Deadmau5), Tiesto, Skrillex, and many more. His music falls under the category of progressive house or electro house, a genre that has experienced a massive resurgence other the last 5 years.
Kaskade will perform at Lollapalooza on Sunday August 5th
