FRI & SAT | ADVENTURE CLUB at OGDEN THEATRE | 1/10-1/11 Christian Srigley and Leighton James burst onto the scene around 2009 and haven't stopped putting out big tracks since. With a Flight Facilities remix of "Crave You" and a collaborative track with Krewella called "Rise and Fall," Adventure Club has become a household name among the club-goers and major festival fans.
SAT | DESTRUCTO at BETA | 1/25/14 HARD Events founder and twenty-year veteran DJ Gary Richards -- also known as Destructo on festival bills -- has been putting on electronic-music parties under the HARD moniker since 2007. Richards has developed a following by successfully curating programs that cater to a variety of tastes; there's always something for everyone, whether it's the heavy-bass aficionado or the chilled-out groovehound who salivates at the sound of downtempo melodies.
THURS | BT at BETA | 1/9/14 BT (Brian Transeau to his parents, wife and friends) helped push trance to its lushest, most symphonic and bombastic heights; his tracks are among the most recognizable and iconic in the genre. Outside of being possibly the world's top trance producer, he's also produced some pretty well-known pop hits and branched out within the dance world to embrace breakbeats, electro and other styles. In the studio, he's known as a total perfectionist, to the point of developing his own software to get the results he's after. It's not all buttons and knobs, though: BT was classically trained, and his tracks are as musical as they are technical. -- Cory Casciato
