Sunset Events & Disco Donnie Presents are proud to announce that dance music veteran and Grammy Award winning artist, Skrillex, is the first of three main stage closers to be announced for Sunset Music Festival 2022. Fans earned this announcement, retweeting a teaser tweet from Sunset over 300 times in less than 2 hours to unlock this huge news. Skrillex will join the robust roster of 50+ artists to perform at Raymond James Stadium for the first 3-day edition of Sunset Music Festival (May 27-29).
Skrillex’s live shows have set the bar for live performance, known for delivering unparalleled energy and skill each time he steps behind the decks. He’s a global sensation who has headlined arenas and festivals all around the world, graced the covers of magazine heavyweights like Rolling Stone and Wired, and holds the record for most Grammys won by an EDM artist. His collaborations include Justin Bieber, Bruno Mars, FKA Twigs, Kid Cudi, Boys Noize, A$AP Rocky, and Diplo among countless others.
Beyond his obviously impressive career in electronic music, from Grammy Awards to Billboard Top 10 Hits to collaborations with the world’s biggest names… Skrillex’s name on the Sunset lineup means so much more to electronic fans. For many, Skrillex represents the beginning of their journey into the electronic music scene. Skrillex was a huge part of the growth of the electronic music scene from underground clubs and warehouses to arena tours and festivals. This performance will mark Skrillex's fourth time joining the Sunset Music Festival lineup. Previous years include 2015 (as Skrillex), 2016 (as Jack U), 2019 (as Dog Blood).
“In celebration of our first ten years of Sunset Music Festival and our expansion to a 3-day festival, we are honored to have Skrillex return to close the main stage. I can't wait for what's sure to be an extraordinary set.” - John Santoro, Sunset Events Founder

“2022 marks our first decade at Raymond James Stadium grounds and we’re so proud of our partnership with TSA and the city of Tampa. Sunset started as a small pop up in 2012 and fast forward to 2022, we now have our biggest Sunset ever, with 4 stages featuring large-scale production and one more day of dance music. Not only has our festival grown, but we have grown together with Tampa Bay - it is an international destination with the #1 growing housing market in the U.S. and the best beaches in the world.” - John Santoro
Sunset Music Festival was the first large-scale festival back in Florida since Covid. Thanks to the diligent work between Sunset Events, Disco Donnie Presents, and local healthcare officials, the festival was an enormous success, leaving fans buzzing with anticipation for the next installment.
