This release comes shortly after Skrillex hosted two epic headlining sets at Las Vegas’s XS Nightclub during Insomniac’s Electric Daisy Carnival week and weekend, which lasted from June 17-23. The first set which took place on Sunday June 22, Skrillex took over the decks with a special rendition of the venue’s ‘Night Swim.’ Guests indulged in a grandiose pool party which featured playful water fights under the Las Vegas sky and created the perfect backdrop for revelers to end a memorable weekend.

For the EDC travelers who decided to stay an extra night into Monday June 23, XS Nightclub featured a very special set of performances to close the weekend out with an unbeatable grand finale. Featuring back-to-back sets from dance-music legends, Skrillex, Diplo, and RL Grime, the venue welcomed more than 10,500 fans that night, which was just short of its record set over Memorial Day Weekend.
