The artist, whose real name is Ryan Raddon, was the first club music artist to ever grab a space at the Los Angeles Convention Center.
It’s only fitting, since Kaskade was also the first EDM artist to headline a show at the Los Angeles Staples Center in 2012.
His May 7th show at the Convention Center was the biggest show of Raddon’s career, and drew in about 20,000 fans. Tickets to the performance sold out in under five minutes.
The venue has a 45-year history, and in addition to musical performances, is also home to E3, Anime Expo and the Primetime Emmy Awards’ Governers Ball.
Kaskade had just as much fun performing as fans did in the audience.

When asked in a recent interview if he ever thought EDM would become something big enough to be played at stadiums, Raddon replied, “Not at all. I always saw it and heard it as club music. I thought it could appeal to more people, that good songs would connect, but I never assumed it would happen on this level.”Read more to check out Kaskade’s pop-up shop:
