1 / 5

Major Lazer

"Diplo came through and our played our event the very first we ever had it in the United States. he's a good friend and we're happy to have him back with Major Lazer. It's going to be spectacular. 

"I don't want to give a spoiler alert, but we had to set up the stage in a particular way because he's going to do something very exciting at the show."

2 / 5

Flume

"Big fan of Flume. He has an awesome song with Vince Staples who's also playing—"Smoke and Retribution"—so I'm going to try to be front row for that."

3 / 5

YG

"My third pick for Air + Style would be YG—he's awesome, a nice guy. I took him snowboarding up in Big Bear, he had a good time and he was pretty good! He skateboards so already had a one-up on it. Snowboarding's not the same as skating at all, but him and his whole crowd were up there so they had a good time.

"He's just the man—his energy, his whole deal. I actually haven't seen him perform so I'm pumped to see."

TV on the Radio

"A little mix of the rock and pop, but they've got such an amazing array of music. They have the older song, and the newer stuff, and I haven't seen them perform yet!"

5 / 5

Vince Staples

"Last but not least, Vince Staples. Awesome guy, I had the pleasure of meeting him. He's from L.A., really nice kid, and he's also just the man. He's great. And I haven't seen him perform yet so you gotta see him this year at Air + Style too."
