3. Benny Benassi

Why you can’t miss him: Benny Benassi is a legend. A pioneer in electronic music. With a career spanning over 30 years, he is widely regarded as one of the most internationally respected and w treasured artists in the music industry.

This Israeli duo has a career spanning almost 20 years and they aren’t afraid to employ acoustic guitars, complex synthesized basses, and a sick multimedia backdrop.

1. Justice

Why you can’t miss them: There is no doubt that the French have been killing electronic music for decades. From Daft Punk, to M83, Telopopmusik, Phoenix, and of course, Justice.  This Grammy-nominated duo’s style combines cut up bass lines with a compressed and distorted synth sound. Their live shows are captivating, and their remixes of already beloved songs bring something new to the table. They are innovators that create an inimitable sound that is entirely their own by utilizing rock tones and disco-inspired vocals and it is unparalleled.
