With Steve Aoki‘s rapid rise to fame and recent dominion over the EDM scene and beyond, it was only a matter of time before he received his very own feature film. Lucky for dance music fans in the New York area, that day is quickly approaching. On April 15 at the Beacon Theatre, a new documentary centered on the life and pursuits of Aoki will be premiered at the esteemed Tribeca Film Festival. I’ll Sleep When I’m Dead will follow his timeline from the very beginning, when Aoki remembers his father founding the popular restaurant chain Benihana, until the near-present when we played his biggest career showcase at New York’s Madison Square Garden.
The exclusive screening will be followed by a live conversation with Aoki, when he will proceed to play a live performance to lucky fans and movie goers. During the same event, he will also sit down as one of the judges on the festival’s new Tribeca Snapchat Shorts competition alongside DJ Khaled, Jessica Alba and Steve Buscemi (of all people).
I’ll Sleep When I’m Dead was directed by Justin Krook and produced by Matthew Weaver, Matt Colon and David Gelb.
