Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike Host Biggest Solo DJ Show in Germany but Everyone Hates Them

How is it that some of the least liked people in EDM are still selling out enormous shows? People seem to always be complaining about Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, but they’ve just broken the record for the biggest solo DJ show in Germany.

The duo announced they’d be playing at the Veltins Arena earlier this year, and within 24 hours of tickets going on sale, they managed to sell over 30,000 seats. Not long after that, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike sold out the venue completely, drawing in 45,000 people.

How are Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike so popular?

That is a lot of people. How is that possible when people always seem to be whining about the duo?

Here are a few reasons why they’ve been notoriously unpopular:

  • They won the number one spot on DJ Mag’s Top DJs list by using shady marketing tactics
  • Their video for “The Hum” plays into the stereotype of EDM being about misogyny and general gross behavior
  • They play Nickelback covers at their shows. Enough said.
  • Some people have alleged that 90% of their tracks are ghost produced

Really, it’s the DJ Mag issue that has annoyed people the most. Apparently they had gorgeous women going around festivals with iPads to coerce people into voting for them. Even Hardwell bashed Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike for their shady tactics in 2015.

3Lau originally tweeted, “Maybe people’s opinions will finally change – put the top 3 in the studio, let’s see if the #1 DJ duo can give the best production tip.” Hardwell scathingly joined in, saying, “Come and get it! Let them bring their iPads so they can make notes.”


Yikes. Nonetheless, fans are still going crazy over the duo, especially in Europe, so even if their stuff is being ghost produced, it’s at the very least going over well with ticket-purchasers and making them a ton of money.
