Big Name Boom at I Love This City Festival

This week, The Reader’s own Club Crawler gave a shout out to tomorrow’s I Love This City festival at Cricket Wireless Amphitheatre, which features some of the biggest names in popular electronic music crammed into an all-day extravaganza open to anyone 16 years and up with $25 - $75 (VIP) to spare.

The line-up speaks for itself, and it says, “Boooom E-tarded teens and boom chk drunk college kids wobble wobble getting dehydrated and kzew! thrashing around to boooom colossal dubstep anthems wob wob wob in Chula Vista vroomzow!

Which can be great fun, provided that's the kind of thing you're in to.

Here’s what performers J Devil (Jonathan Davis of Korn) and SOFI said in response to The Reader’s questions:


What do you love about San Diego?

J Devil: There’s great weather, and such a cool, laidback vibe. People are really easy-going and genuine down there. It’s also where I saw my first Super Bowl live!

SOFI: It feels like home....I know some great people there and have played and hung out at Voyeur a bunch. I love the Downtown/Gaslamp Quarter area with all of its restaurants and the beach is way nicer than LA. I’ve premiered my song “Bring Out the devil” during Skrillex’s set [February 2011] in San Diego...always good memories of this city!


What are you excited about for this festival?

J Devil: It’s a collection of some of the best EDM artists around today. I’m so excited to play with a lot of my friends and just have a blast

SOFI: To be playing it really!!! I’m just stoked to be performing. The line-up is super duper and I’m happy I get to be part of it.


Electronic Dance Music has been getting a lot of mainstream attention lately. What do you see in the future for the genre and yourself as a producer?

J Devil: I see it ever-evolving, turning into something completely different with each year. It will keep growing and changing, and doing new and exciting things.

SOFI: I don't like to think of myself as genre specific even though-yes right now I am making electronic music. I think it’s all a mash at this point and genres are crossing more than ever. I hear of “new” genres every day. At the end of the day one thing is for sure, music will evolve and change and repeat itself again...what matters is that it moves people.
