React Presents announced today that Grammy Award winning DJ and producer Afrojack will make history in Chicago on Saturday, July 5th, as the first electronic dance music artist to ever perform outdoors at the East End of Navy Pier! Over 6,000 fans will revel in some of the biggest hits in dance music, including "Take Over Control," "Titanium," and "Ten Feet Tall," with the beautiful Chicago skyline as a backdrop!

Tickets on sale on Friday, May 2nd, at Noon CST at Clubtix.com.

After playing the MID and some of the largest theaters in Chicago, Afrojack headlined the inaugural Spring Awakening Music Festival in 2012, and North Coast Music Festival 2013. At only 26, he has played a large role in the worldwide explosion and popularity of dance music, with The Hollywood Reporter recently calling him “a global icon” set “to conquer the world." A talented artist, Afrojack is versatile and creative with his sound whether creating club hits or producing and remixing for the likes of Beyoncé, Pitbull, David Guetta, or Madonna. In 2011, he co-wrote and produced "Give Me Everything" for Pitbull and Ne-Yo, which has sold more than 5 million copies worldwide.

Starting off in his hometown of Spijkenisse, Nick van de Wall, aka Afrojack, quickly made a name for himself with a slew of hard-hitting underground releases, before exploding on the music scene in 2011 with the release of "Take Over Control," an instant worldwide club and chart hit, the single reached platinum status in the U.S. Afrojack then went onto develop his own imprint in the production world with his label Wall Recordings.

2014 is set to be another milestone year for Afrojack with the release of his second single "Ten Feet Tall" and his debut album entitled "Forget The World" on May 19th, 2014, on Def Jam Recordings.

Navy Pier is known for its spectacular fireworks shows throughout the summer, and over Independence Day Weekend, Navy Pier's Fireworks display will be bigger and better to celebrate the weekend! [from React Presents Afrojack press release]
