2x Grammy-nominated DJ/producer Steve Aoki is preparing to hit the road for his ‘Kolony’ Tour with special guest Desiigner. Set to kick off on February 10th in DC, the tour will hit cities such as Seattle, LA, Austin, Philadelphia, and more.

Today, Aoki announces a series of additional special guests – an eclectic roster of DJs big and small joining the tour, creating a mini-festival of sorts. Joining Desiigner on the large majority of dates will be Grandtheft, whose single “Easy Go (featuring Delaney Jane)” broke the Top 30 on Billboard’s Hot Dance / Electronic Songs Chart over 2017 and has since accumulated nearly 17 M on demand streams.  Multi-platinum DJ/producers Deorro, W&W and Quintino will join as special guests in select markets, fortifying these stacked bills. Finally, a selection of handpicked of Dim Mak artists including Bad Royale, Bok Nero, Max Styler, Party Pupils, QUIX and Ricky Remedy will round out the lineups, with additional support from Samahta. The tour will encapsulate the current sound of Dim Mak, with new music forthcoming on the label from a majority of these artists, including Deorro and Grandtheft.

Tickets for the 32-city run are available for purchase now at SteveAoki.com. For each ticket sold, $1 will be donated to the AOKI FOUNDATION, whose primary goal is supporting organizations in supporting brain science and research areas with a specific focus on regenerative medicine and brain preservation, as well as humanitarian crisis.
