This May, San Francisco is getting a two-day electronic dance music party of titanic proportions: I Love This City will bring huge names like Tiësto, Steve Aoki, Duck Sauce, James Murphy, the Crystal Method, and many more to the AT&T Park parking lot over Memorial Day weekend, May 25 and 26.

No doubt seeing to capitalize on the popularity (and profitability) of electronic dance music, the event will be produced by concert giant Live Nation, which books large Bay Area venues like Shoreline Amphitheater, Oracle Arena, HP Pavilion, and San Francisco's historic Fillmore. I Love This City is actually a two-city party -- on Saturday, May 26 and Sunday, May 27, a companion event will be held in San Diego, with Skrillex headlining.

A statement out today was notably vague on the finality of the S.F. lineup, holding a "special guest" slot open at the top of the bill for Friday's performance. So who will it be? Your guess is as good as ours, but check out the confirmed lineup for I Love This City S.F. after the jump:

Friday, May 25 Headliners

Duck Sauce

Special Guest

Steve Aoki


James Murphy (DJ Set)

Saturday, May 26 Headliners


Laidback Luke


Other performers confirmed for SF:

The Crystal Method

Kill the Noise


Felix Cartal

Dirtyphonics (Live)

Cookie Monsta

Holy Ghost!

Holy Fuck

Cut Chemist

Helicopter Showdown


Shit Robot


Picture Plane



Tickets for the 18+ I Love This City are currently $150 for a two-day pass and $250 for a two-day VIP pass. Single-day passes are not currently on sale, but look for future updates on All Shook Down.

Oh, and for good measure, here is a video of Steve Aoki throwing a cake at a female fan during Miami's Ultra Music Festival:

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
