Future-house pioneer Oliver Heldens recently tore it up at Lollapalooza 2021, which celebrated its 30th anniversary in early August as one of the United State’s first major festivals to take place after the COVID-19 pandemic. Heldens, dressed in a ghost-themed Pokémon button-up, spun for just over 57 minutes to a sea of reunited festival-goers. If you weren’t there to witness it, well, now you can.
The “Gecko” producer decided to gift his fans a high-definition, multi-camera broadcast of his set from Perry’s Stage. Throwing in everything from hit originals and remixes like “This Groove” and his “One Kiss” recasting, Heldens came to perform. Early on in the set, the DJ served up an appetizer in the form of Madcon’s “Beggin.” The connection between audience and DJ never once faltered, as Heldens at one point even left the decks to dance center-stage with the crowd. See it all unfold below.
