Italian brothers Alessandro and Andrea Vinai are an EDM duo producing music since 2011. They released their debut single 'Hands Up' in 2013 and quickly gained the support of global top DJs like Tiesto and Showtek. 2014 saw the release of their dance anthem 'Raveology' as well as the rise of Vinai's signature sound known as Melbourne Bounce. That same year, they exploded onto music charts like Billboard and Beatport with three separate singles each claiming the #1 spot.
These brothers lit the spark that turned bounce EDM into a worldwide phenomenon, and for a raging all-night festival no sound could be more fitting.
The Swedish-born DJ and producer is known for fusing hip hop, dancehall, and electro into his own distinct hybrid sound. As the poster boy for Steve Aoki's Dim Mak Records imprint he has turned out massive hits like 'Bomb a Drop' and whipped crowds around the world into a frenzy with the festival mainstay 'Jump and Sweat'.
