Shiba San is a force to be reckoned with. After producing hip-hop music for 15 years, this mysterious Frenchman wowed the world with his debut track, 'Okay.' It was not soon after that Shiba San started dominating the house music scene, pumping out massive tune after tune and becoming part of the venerated Dirtybird family in the process.
Support acts: Tim Baresko, Something Spicy.
Thursday, March 21 | The Knitting Factory | Tickets
Over the last few years, Ekali has become an absolute force to be reckoned with. His bass and melodic-infused music has captivated audiences across the globe and earned him an impressive pedigree with official remixes for Jack Ü, What So Not, and Gallant. Ekali and opener 1788-L were booked to originally perform last October, but the show was moved due to the fire at the Knitting Factory.
Support act: 1788-L
