On Saturday, June 1, Skrillex and Fred again.. electrified over 25,000 fans who showed up at San Francisco‘s Civic Center Plaza to see an unforgettable set from the two EDM stars. Though the plans had been in the works for a few months, Skrillex and Fred again.. had announced the event the weekend prior, with the former even uploading a post on X to confirm the San Francisco super-rave. Both EDM maestros then uploaded Instagram Story clips that included Ticketmaster links for the event, which went on sale at 12 p.m. on Tuesday, May 28th.

The tickets quickly sold out and in a matter of time, even local and national news outlets such as ABC7 discussed the must-see event and the impact it would bring to the San Francisco entertainment scene. Here is the summary of one of the most-anticipated live events in San Francisco’s vibrant entertainment history.

Skrillex And Fred again.. Produced Unforgettable Events At The Civic Center Plaza

When June 1st arrived, the event organizers and city officials (and staff) readied for the large turnout that would fill up the plaza in a matter of minutes. Although the event officially kicked off at 6:30 p.m. and ended at 10 p.m., to properly adhere to San Francisco’s curfew regulations regarding outdoor music events. Even way before 6:30 p.m., large crowds filled up the Civic Center Plaza and anticipated an event where it would take some time for anyone to get through the crowds and back onto an open space. Around the whole event area were plenty of food trucks, drink booths, and even the merch booth (later sold out of items) for the fans to bring home to their fans and family a memorable piece of merchandise from the event.

When Skrillex and Fred again.. came onto the decks, the fans roared wildly in excitement and they knew that, no pun intended in relation to Skrillex’s awesome collaborative track with Boys Noise, it was going to be a fine day. Both artists played world-class bangers including ‘Peekaboo‘, ‘Badders‘, ‘Pepper‘, and the Sonny’s latest track that he produced alongside Hamdi and Taichu, Push. The EDM stars themselves made incredible moments such as hyping up the fans by standing next to the decks and turning up the heat even more than it already had been. Towards the end of the event, Fred again.. even brought out Anderson .Paak to perform their latest track, ‘places to be’ and the crowd got even more excited when they saw the latter arrive on stage.

Final words

The event was a success and most definitely brought back a lot of vibrancy to the city of San Francisco. The strobe lights, the mesmerizing visuals shown in the backdrop of City Hall behind the stage, the top-quality music, and the genuine vibes of the crowd even attracted a crowd of curious locals and tourists who did not plan on attending the event, recorded clips and also danced to the beats and rhythms that Skrillex and Fred again.. provided. At the moment of this writing, Fred again.. is going to perform the last of his three-date shows at Stanford‘s Frost Amphitheater later today. He had already performed on June 4 and 5 and if anyone is interested in attending his event tonight, here is the link to purchase tickets for it.
