Four of the world's best EDM DJs are hitting up Echostage for a once-in-a-lifetime experience for any music lover. W&W, the acclaimed Dutch duo will return to DC, spinning on a stage shared by Sunnery James and Ryan Marciano for the night.
Named one of DJ Mag's Top 100 (number 14), W&W have played at festivals at Madison Square Garden, Tomorrowland, and Electric Zoo. Additionally, the legendary techno team is the first ever dance music act to perform at a Major League Baseball stadium (Philadelphia Phillies' Citizen's Bank Ball Park).
This track is monstrous, and that's not just because of the title. W&W, a beastly duo in their own right, have managed to pack all the fantasy and mystery of the of the fabled abominable snowman, along with with the sheer, wild ferocity of a Yeti into their first release of 2014.
Reaching #14 on the DJ Mag Top 100 poll, W&W rode a crushing wave of success throughout 2013. With 'Bigfoot,' out today on Mainstage Music, and already shaking things up this winter, it's looking like the devastating duo will be leaving crater-sized footprints in their wake as they continue trample the competition this year.
