State of Emergency: Ingrosso and Alesso To Play BJC
The creators of DAYGLOW announced last night that the world’s largest paint party would be making a trip to Happy Valley in April, but that’s not the only bomb they dropped. Just a few days before State Patty’s Day, on Thursday, February 23rd, they’ll be presenting State of Emergency at the Bryce Jordan Center, featuring superstar DJs Sebastian Ingrosso and Alesso.
Ingrosso, one of the biggest names in the world of electronic dance music, is one third of supergroup Swedish House Mafia, where he collaborates with Axwell and Steve Angello. The popular Swedish producer was ranked 26th best in the world on the 2011 DJ Mag’s Top 100 DJ list. If you want a taste what he might play in a few weeks, check out his recently premiered podcast, Refune Radio.
Alesso might not have the prominence as Ingrosso, who he’ll likely be opening for, but there’s no doubt that the young producer is quickly generating buzz amongst electronic fans. With remixes of worldwide hits such as Party Rock Anthem, Save The World, and Titanium in 2011, as well as a collab with Ingrosso on Calling, Alesso is turning heads. Expect a high-energy set from the up-and-comer. Toss in DAYGLOW’s usual lights, lasers, and LED screens, and this is guaranteed to be a night you’ll never forget.
Tickets will go on sale this Wednesday at 10 a.m., available “at all Penn State outlets” and on TicketMaster, according to the event’s Facebook page. Stay posted for more information on tickets.
