Skrillex will headline this summer’s South West Four Weekender.
The DJ, who released his new EP ‘Bangarang’ in February, will headline the festival’s closing night, with Chase and Status confirmed to close the show on the opening night.
This is a look back at his first days in the music business -- the embarrassing days.
Dubstep DJ Skrillex has said that he doesn’t care if people hate him. “And, all due respect to all those artists, but that’s not what I do. My performances are different because you’re captivated more by everything around you rather than just staring at something…
Sonny John Moore (born January 15 1988), professionally referred to by a stage name, "Skrillex" is a big-name American electro house/dubstep producer from LA, California.
“They actually asked us to be on that as well,” said Moore.
But if you look at their profiles, they’re so young.” In the interview Skrillex also explained how he turned down the chance to perform with Foo Fighters and Deadmau5 at the Grammy Awards ceremony last month in Los Angeles.
He told Rolling Stone that their relationship had blossomed after he sent her an unsolicited email.
He began his first tour as a solo artist in late 2007.
After recruiting a new band lineup, Moore joined the Alternative Press Tour to support bands such as All Time Low and The Rocket Summer, and appeared on the cover of Alternative Press' annual "100 Bands You Need to Know" issue.
After performing on several successful tours, two being the Vans Warped Tour and Dead by Dawn tour, they began recording their second album, Heroine with producer Ross Robinson. With high record sales once again, the band found themselves part of many successful tours, until Moore started suffering vocal problems, causing the band to resign from several tours.
