Canadian DJ ill.Gates is not a newcomer to the EDM scene. He's been playing shows since the mid 1990s when the phrase EDM didn't exist and it certainly wasn't dominating the pop charts. Known for having a diverse style, ill.Gates playing everything from electro house to hip-hop and dubstep.
"I'm so happy to bring a higher caliber electronic artist to the grand valley," show promoter Cody Jacobs said. "Ill.gates is huge! He makes music with some of the biggest cats in the game, Bassnectar, r/d, Mimosa... The list goes on. "
"With bigger names comes more responsibilities. We are continuing to step up the production quality with every show to ensure an awesome experience. For concert goers, buying presale tickets is becoming a must. Artist deposits are expensive and shows will sell out. Buying your tickets at the door will soon be a fad of the past for Grand Junction live music heads."
It is too late to purchase your ticket in advance however prices are still reasonable. Tickets for ill.Gates are $12 and only $5 for students with a valid ID. This is an 18 and up event.
