[EN IMAGES] FEQ: A burning public for Marshmello

With his lasers, visual effects, hits, big sound and thundering low frequencies pounding through the bodies, Marshmello won an adoring audience during his passage on the Plains yesterday.

Audiences familiar with his repertoire had a royal blast to the strains of rhythms that the marshmallow-headed man used, often syncopated and powerful.

The 30-year-old DJ from Philadelphia appeared on stage at around 10:15 p.m. with footage of Marshmello wearing an astronaut costume during a spacewalk.

In two counts and three moves, plumes of smoke and a blast of confetti were fired. It was gone. And for a good hour and a half of electro and space sounds that are presented with high intensity and in a spectacular way.

“Are you ready Quebec?” Marshmello would allocate to one and the other, often climbing onto the structure on which his working tools were installed.

While Back in timeTheir fans solidly hopped on the Plains. While here with mechanted the people, just like with success happy and at other times. Marshmello managed to maintain an energy level of 10 throughout the evening.

Like any good self-respecting DJ, Christopher Comstock provokes adrenaline rushes, including with excerpts from Seven Nations Army White Stripes, We like to party Vengaboys and smells like Teen Spirit of nirvana.

He dispensed with the syncopated rhythms, which were gradually becoming a little superfluous, in the last part of his show with a good version of numbersingle he released in June Be polite with the voice of Halsey and come go. It felt good to hear some sustained tunes after all that noise before ending with a series of firecrackers exploding.

As tradition dictates, beach items were plentiful in the crowd during this electro party, including colorful pool noodles, beach balls, flying sharks and… a male inflatable doll.

Oliver is on fire

Flames, smoke, laser beams are all well and good, but to have fun, electro nights need to consist primarily of good beats.

What Oliver Heldens understood before the arrival of Marshmello. Good “beats”, he had a large amount in his computer.

The DJ from the Netherlands leaned against his single Koala bear with a few bars of Madonna, a version ofI was made to love you of kiss and the freak Chic that creates a charged club atmosphere. He set the plains on fire. It even danced in the company tents and in the VIP area. It’s good to say. That could be.

We even got a remixed and faster version of Another brick in the wall part 2 by Pink Floyd, A beautiful story of Fugain and its Grand Bazaar and Disenchanted by Mylène Farmer to put an end to her performance. What else can I say. Oliver Heldens shot clean on the plains.

“You’re amazing. I love you Quebec,” he started from behind his gear. Let’s say the 27-year-old DJ from Rotterdam who set the bar high for Marshmello.

Pascal Asselin, known as Millimetrik, DJ from Quebec City, had a great time performing on the main Plaines stage at 7pm to open the evening.

Intense, epic and unforgettable are the three words that came out of his mouth when asked to summarize his 35-minute stint on the boards.

“I’d often dreamed of performing on the Plains and told myself that it couldn’t be done and that I was too small for it,” he said in a backstage interview after his performance.

Millimetrik had already bought his pass for the festival when program director Louis Bellavance asked him to be there.

“I didn’t want to miss Rage Against the Machine,” he said, now wishing it were possible.

Accompanied by drummer Jean-Michel Perrier and two dancers, Millimetrik offered several tracks from his album sun drenched started last year. Dominic Pelletier and Liana Bureau came to sing a couple of tracks, the biggest of their career, in front of a good crowd.

“Here is our home. You have no idea how good it feels to be in your town and on that damn stage there,” he said at the start of his board visit.

We could see a Quebec flag in front of the stage and we felt a nice “vibe” building along the way The child of fire.

MIllimetrik began his performance with lots of drums and electronic percussion. A nod to his past as a drummer. What a summery entry, dynamic and with a great sound.

“I had all sorts of thoughts while preparing for this show. I’ve decided to go with my color and be myself. What I do is lighter house with percussion. 10 or 15 years ago, when I was younger, I would have done it like everyone else. I’m not saying this to brag, but I’ve been incorporating drum sounds into my music for 10 years. I believe in it,” he said.

With the cancellation of the performance of Australian Alison Wonderland due to illness, fans of “Beats” by Oliver Lee and James Carter from the British duo Snakehips were spoiled.

We noticed Party Up (Up Here) by DMX, September of Earth Wind and Fire and the achievements do not go and All my friends.
