Skrillex goes big for first major festival performance of the year at Ultra Abu Dhabi [FULL SET]

Music

Skrillex truly hit the ground running in 2023, announcing two albums, releasing a string of singles, dropping both albums 24 hours apart, selling out Madison Square Garden with Fred again.. and Four Tet with 3 days’ notice — he set his intentions and knocked them all out of the park.

But even before all that, Skrillex was announced for a slew of festival appearances. The first of them happened this past weekend for the latest new Ultra Worldwide event in Abu Dhabi, along with ILLENIUM, Calvin Harris, NGHTMRE, and more. For his first major festival performance of the year, we get our first real taste of what a new, modern Skrillex set entails. First off, he’s got tons of new music, so there are a huge amount of originals and edits in his set from this new wave of releases.

That being said, he still throws in a lot of classics like “Agen Wida” with JOYRYDE, “Scary Monsters And Nice Sprites,” “Bangarang,” and even some Jack Ü and Dog Blood. He also drops some heaters from the likes of Juelz and W IN K, Hamdi, Knock2, Jon Casey, and RUVLO. And he, of course, still closes with his iconic “Cinema” remix.

Check out the full set below and scroll down for the tracklist.
