In a recent Rolling Stone feature, Deadmau5, Steve Aoki and Moby, amongst other artists, shared their wildest and craziest fan stories. From a guy dressed up in a ten foot tree costume in Toronto to a guy lighting up a flare in Glasgow in the middle of a crowd, these stories are pretty nuts. I’m sure you guys have some pretty crazy stories to tell as well, so you should share them with us in the comment section below!

Deadmau5

I was at a festival in Glasgow when a guy set off a giant flare right in the middle of the crowd. I looked out, and everyone parted like it was the Red Sea, and there was one guy standing alone with this giant flare burning. After a minute, he threw it towards the front and I said, ‘Oh shit.’ Thankfully no one was hurt.

Moby

The first time I played in Toronto, which would’ve been ’90, ’91 or ’92, it was at a late-night rave. A man dressed as a ten-foot tall tree ran on stage and started wrestling with me. And of course, because it’s a rave, there’s no security, and I think people thought it was part of the show, but it was just this man on ecstasy losing his mind, dressed up as a ten-foot tree who kind of tackled me. So there I was literally wrestling in so far as you can wrestle someone dressed up in a ten-foot tree costume at three o’clock in the morning in front of an audience out of their mind at a rave in Toronto.

Steve Aoki

In 2012, on the Deadmeat tour, there was a fan at one of my shows who climbed up on the roof and hung upside down just to get close enough to give me a high five in my DJ booth that was 20 feet above the ground.
