If you’re not an avid follower of dance music but are tuned into popular culture at all you’ve likely experienced music touched by the hands of John Digweed.
Originally hailing from England but having clearly arrived on the global scene nearly a decade ago, John has long since cemented his name in the pages of dance music history. His list of achievements is groundbreaking to say the least.
Highlights would be the first proper dj mix compilation (“Renaissance”, done with Sasha), being the first British dj to hold a residency at what was then the world’s most well known club in NYC (Twilo, also with Sasha) as well as having remixed tracks by Danny Tenaglia, Underworld and New Order. Digweed is one of those artists YOU have to see at whichever club or festival he’s playing, which one of the reasons we were excited for EDC but we recently found out some bad news regarding his EDC appearance.
It’s a big heartbreak when an artist has to peace out of a festival, and it pains us to share that John Digweed will not be at EDC due to personal reasons. The DJ didn’t give too many details, so it’s best to give him some space until matters are settled. Though the show must go on, the heavy lineup for EDC Vegas 2018 guarantees there will be a slew of world-class DJs who can do justice to his time slot.
Read Digweed’s statement below and let us know who you may want to see play longer(or if you want another DJ altogether) on out twitter @GlobaldanceElec.
I am so sorry that I had to pull out of this years @EDC_LasVegas for personal reasons, I hope you understand that family always has to come first even when it is one of your favourite festivals in the world. I will miss being there immensely! pic.twitter.com/wTHJTx8ltm
