Diplo is no stranger to Burning Man, having played there for years both as a solo artist and even once with Skrillex as Jack Ü. This year, he’s got a busy, busy schedule on the Playa with constant sets Wednesday thru Friday, for blocks of about 12 hours at a time at multiple sites.
Between an afro house set at Robot Heart, a trap set at Camp Questionmark, and a deep house set at the Solriser art car, the one we’re still most excited to hear about after the fact is that back-to-back set with Flume on Friday.
Diplo and Flume aren’t typically artists who run in the same circles, so this combo one-two punch is pretty significantly left field. Nonetheless, Diplo is a bit of a DJ chameleon and has the skills to insert himself into any genre or situation and make it work.
The curiosity is killing us, and we’re praying that set gets recorded.
