Above & Beyond Talk EDM at Lollapalooza’s Toyota Soundwave Tent

Above and Beyond Lollapalooza Spin Toyota Soundwave Tent Festival

On Friday, August 1, SPIN welcomed CHVRCHES, Joywave, the Kooks, and Rudimental into the Toyota Soundwave tent at Lollapalooza in Chicago’s Grant Park. When Above & Beyond stopped by for a visit, the DJ duo chatted about the rise of EDM in America and how that popularity has translated into more opportunities for musicians globally.

“It’s good for us, we’re kind of benefitting from that,” Above & Beyond member Tony McGuinness said during the interview. “I think obviously there’s a great opportunity to get your music into the mainstream,” he added, “but I think those cycles tend to be a lot shorter than the cycles underground music tends to work on.”
