Skrillex has had a very busy 2023 releasing two albums and a number of remixes already. He also filled in as a headliner during week 2 of Coachella after Frank Ocean pulled out and delivered a Boiler Room-style EDM set alongside fellow artists Fred Again… and Four Tet. Just a few days ago Skrillex debuted a new remix of Ice Spice and Nicki Minaj’s hit song “Princess Diana” which Nicki herself seemed to enjoy.
During his performance at a different festival over the weekend, Primavera Sound, he had to briefly pause in the middle due to a fire. The show was paused for over 10 minutes after one of the lights on the stage above where Skrillex was standing caught on fire. Festival organizers lower the light and put it out with a handheld fire extinguisher. Fans in attendance shared dozens of videos of the fire to social media as soon as it happened.
Skrillex’s Scary Situation
After a quiet 2022, Skrillex has seemingly been everywhere this year. His two new albums “Quest For Fire” and “Don’t Get Too Close” have very different sounds but feature a number of high-profile collaborators. Missy Elliott, Swae Lee, Kid Cudi, Chief Keef, Don Toliver, Yung Lean, Justin Bieber, and many more appear as features on various songs from either album. Alongside all of these collaborations he’s worked and performed with breakout garage producer Fred Again… and micro-house legend Four Tet. The trio have reportedly been living together in New York since sometime last year.
Skrillex and company served as a last-minute addition to weekend two of Coachella following Frank Ocean’s controversial headlining set. The show left fans disappointed after it started late and ended early. For weekend two, the ice skating rink which was meant for Frank’s show was repurposed for Skrillex’s replacement show. It was one of dozens of festival spots the EDM superstar has played in 2023. It followed a series of tweets he made earlier this year explaining the personal reasons behind his absence.
