Although it has been just over a month since Heineken’s Escapade Festival made its way to Ottawa for the sixth year in a row, Laidback Luke has just made his epic b2b set with Yellow Claw available for your listening pleasure via Soundcloud. After playing an hour and a half long set of his own, Laidback Luke surprised concert-goers by staying on stage with Yellow Claw and spinning with them to close out the festival on the night of June 28th. The set is full of awesome trap beats, mean drops, unreleased material, IDs that have taken festivals by storm all year long, and classics by the two artists that have made you lose your minds during sets past. Check out the brutally fantastic set below and listen as two of your favorite artists decimate the eardrums of these Canadians:
Escapade Festival housed a number of legendary acts this year as well as a number of industry up and comers. Among this year’s line-up was Armin van Buuren, Carl Cox, Knife Party, Marcus Schulz, Ferry Corsten, Jauz, Hook N Sling, Dyro, and many more. Escapade prides itself on being Ottawa’s only annual electronic music festival. This year was a big step forward for Escapade with the festival receiving its first ever title-sponsor from none other than Heineken.
Tom Vella, Regional Director of Heineken Canada states that, “At Heineken, we have been involved with some of the biggest festivals and events throughout the world so we are thrilled to work with the Escapade team to bring a truly first-class experience to music lovers on Canada’s birthday.” It will be exciting to see how the festival grows in the years to come with the support of such a huge sponsor. If a back to back set with Laidback Luke and Yellow Claw is any indicator of the path the festival will be headed, my curiosity is piqued.
If this set gets you pumped, don’t miss both of these artists as they come to Phoenix for each of their respective shows in September. You can catch Laidback Luke on Labor Day Weekend at Release Pool Party and Yellow Claw at Mad Decent Block Party on September 18th!
