I think we all remember the moment from EDC Las Vegas this year when Marshmello “revealed” himself to be Tiësto during his performance at cosmicMEADOW. Even today, some fans are convinced that Tiësto is Marshmello – and the rest of us allow them to continue believing that, because honestly it’s just amusing.

But what actually went into planning the whole charade? It was really pretty simple. Tiësto and Marshmello, along with the latter’s manager, Moe Shalizi, got in a trailer together and planned the whole thing out. They’d wear identical clothing and everything would match to make it as accurate and seemingly legitimate as possible.

Though obviously fake, it was one of the more entertaining moments of this year’s Electric Daisy Carnival experience. See it all happen below:

This episode of Tiësto’s In The Booth will air on FM (tonight) Monday, October 24 at 11pm.
