Steve Aoki is one of the most recognizable faces in EDM, literally. In a genre in which people are more often known by an alias and rarely recognized, this producer/label-owner/businessman is a true superstar. Although his beats bang and he's worked with everyone from Rivers Cuomo to LMFAO to Kid Cudi in the studio, it's live where Aoki dominates. His shows turn the stimulation knob up to 11, and he can be seen jumping off trampolines, showering the audience with Champagne, and tossing cakes. Real birthday cakes. His Aokify America Tour, featuring rapper Waka Flocka and dubstep monster Borgore, is one of his biggest to date -- if you're going to be up front, don't wear anything you want to keep clean. With Borgore, Waka Flocka. 18+.
