NGHTMRE B4 XMAS Tour
w/ Valentino Khan & Justin Caruso
NGHTMRE’s rise to the top has been a dream to say the least. Some say he arrived the day Skrillex played his single “Street” on the main stage at Ultra Music Festival in 2015 – dance music’s premiere event. The record would go on to be one of the biggest trap song that summer, and lead Tyler Marenyi to become the darling of Diplo’s Mad Decent imprint, an international festival superstar, and a resident DJ at Las Vegas’ famed Hakkasan. His 2016 collaborations with Zeds Dead, Dillon Francis, and Flux Pavilion helped catapult him all across the world, playing Tomorrowland in Belgium, Storm Festival in Shanghai, Looptopia in Taiwan, and World DJ Fest in Seoul. Tyler also embarked on the 34-city “Gud Vibrations” bus tour with best friends Derek and Scott of Slander that winter, selling out venues such as the Skyway Theatre in Minneapolis, the Rex Theater in Pittsburgh, Rams Head Live in Baltimore, and The Ogden Theatre in Denver. NGHTMRE’s name continues to make waves in 2017, starting with a headline tour through Australia and New Zealand. As summer approaches, he can be found at both stateside and international installations of Lollapalooza and EDC, as well as C3 and Insomniac’s brand new Middlelands festival. Finally, Tyler plans to release a new EP with Mad Decent, a project that aims to take a turn from his usual bangers and explore different sonic territory. If you want to support someone who is at the forefront of creativity in electronic music, NGHTMRE is the name you want to follow.
