Following his show-stopping performance at Milwaukee’s Summerfest last June, the entertaining, uber-talented and cake throwing Steve Aoki returned to Wisconsin and brought his Kolony Tour to The Rave in Milwaukee, WI.
Joined by a huge cast of EMD acts, including Grandtheft, Deorro and Bad Royale, and GOOD Music‘s Desiigner, Steve Aoki brought the party to Milwaukee on a cold Wednesday night.
Soon after doors opened, the music started as the EDM openers, complete with Aoki’s friends and collaborators, got the crowd moving from the very beginning. Energy levels really turned up though, as the ‘Panda’ MC, Desiigner, hit the stage. Performing a number of records from his debut project, New English, the Kanye West-signed rapper brought his wild stage presence to the opening set.
After a brief set change, it was time for Steve Aoki to greet his Wisconsin fans. From start to finish Aoki performed some of his best tracks and remixes, and most importantly he took control of the night, ensuring that every fan left sweaty, out of energy, without their voice and some covered in cake.
Since his memorable Summerfest performance, less than a year ago, Aoki has showed his new found love for Milwaukee on social media a number of times. That love was more than apparent tonight, and you can surely bet that after his past two crazy performances, Milwaukee will be a staple in Steve Aoki tours in the future.
