One of the artists who has been a perennial powerhouse in the dance music scene for over a decade is none other than our favorite mouse, deadmau5. Constantly evolving his sound and exploring new realms, he has continued to blow away crowds with his live performances and techno alter ego TESTPILOT.

Riding a wave of success stemming from the brand new Cube V3 that debuted at Ultra Miami earlier this year, he’s also brought some serious heat to festivals like Escape: Psycho Circus as well. Expect a set that will have you dancing along with his signature tunes and some commentary from him as well as he takes over EDC Orlando with a flock of his followers in tow.

One of the best house artists in the scene right now is making her way to Orlando for the upcoming edition of EDC. That’s right, South Africa’s own Nora En Pure will be gracing the stage to give us all another amazing performance that will leave crowds entirely entranced.

After releasing her stunning EP Homebound last month that was met with plenty of praise, we can’t wait to see what sort of sonic journey she’ll be guiding us on during her set at the circuitGROUNDS on Sunday. We are confident Nora will hold true to all the buzz and her performance at EDC Orlando will be another epic success.

While there are definitely some powerhouse artists in the house music realm on this list, Yotto is one who we also couldn’t help but include. After dropping his album Hyperfall last year, he double-downed in 2019 with even more stunning performances, seasonal mixes, and even launched his very own imprint dubbed Odd One Out.

Anjuna Family members from near and far will be flocking to his set to catch him and there is no doubt in our mind that he’ll be providing some of the sweetest sounds to listen to this year at Tinker Field. Don’t sleep on his set at EDC Orlando, it’s sure to be one of the best of the weekend!

Christopher, or Brown Bear as his Festival Family and most of his friends call him, got his humble beginnings in the dance music scene when he was a child from none other than his mother. The weekends were filled with dance music from the 80’s and 90’s like La Bouche’s “Be My Lover” and Corona’s “Rhythm of the Night”. In 2010 his friends showed him a video from Bonnaroo of Pretty Light’s “I Know the Truth” and he immediately dived on in. Since then he has attended every live music festival from Spirit of Suwannee’s, Purple Hatters Ball (Jam Bands), to Let It Roll Drum & Bass Festival in the Czech Republic. Chris has an eclectic palate for music; from Shpongle and Bassnectar to Oliver Heldens and Porter Robinson, he vibes with it all. He has traveled from coast to coast and around the world looking what he calls The Bear Necessities of Life; the simple things that make you smile, or you find visually moving. This pursuit and travels inspired Bearlosophy, his photographic journal of all his adventures. He aspires to travel the world taking photos for non-profit organizations or to work for one of the top EDM photography teams like aLIVE Coverage.
