Kaskade Added to Something Wicked Festival

DJ and producer Kaskade has been added to the Something Wicked EDM festival October 27 at Sam Houston Race Park, promoters Disco Donnie and Nightculture announced on the festival's Web site Thursday afternoon. He replaces Tiesto, who canceled two weeks ago after injuring his back.

Having just returned from the biggest North American Tour of his career, Kaskade has recently moved back into the studio to start recording new music but will enthusiastically take time away for Disco Donnie to headline this unique new event.

Kaskade was just here in July on that tour, when he played at Bayou Music Center. Rocks Off's Taylor Moon wrote then

At one point the light board in the background showed buildings that were moving like crazy. They were twisting, bouncing and morphing. God only knows what the people who were hanging out with Lucy would see.

Regardless, the visuals of the show were magnificent. Everything was synced perfectly for each track Kaskade threw down. I must say at a certain point the laser effects within the show were stunning.
