or cursing his alter ego, DJ Hanzel, Dillon Francis kept the crowd smiling and dancing late into the night. His final send off of fireworks and rainbows burned an ultraviolet image into the collective conscience of the festival.
4. DJ Hanzel
Personally, I thought DJ Hanzel won the title of “Best Dillon Francis Performance” at Imagine Music Festival 2016. Perhaps it was the novelty of seeing a construct of social media brought to life, or perhaps it was the flawlessly executed deep house set. Either way, DJ Hanzel proved that he is not a gimmick.
3. Beats Antique
Although Beats Antique doesn’t technically fall under our umbrella of coverage, it would be a tremendous disservice to not mention their jaw-dropping performance.
As the band spins a carnival of world music using a variety of instruments, dancer Zoe Jakes moves in sync with the music creating an intimate atmosphere with a speakeasy vibe.
2. Adventure Club
Adventure Club continues to bolster their reputation for grandiose, melodic performances with another set featuring their signature sound. There are only a handful of artists who can tap into the full spectrum of musical emotion. Adventure Club will leave you weeping if you let them.
1. Steve Angello
Seeing a member of Swedish House Mafia perform live is always a treat. Angello delivered one of the only house performances of the weekend, and because of that, it was a special one. The entire festival gathered to dance,
sing, and hold each other as Angello reminded Georgia why EDM became popular in the first place. Although Angello performed on Friday, many clung to the memory of his performance throughout the weekend and beyond.
