Danish electronic band WhoMadeWho is gearing up to headline the debut edition of DGTL USA on December 1st at the Brooklyn Navy Yard, promising an extraordinary live show featuring an innovative stage design and a diverse lineup of international artists.
WhoMadeWho, known for their dynamic blend of Indie, Disco, and Techno, has been a significant force in the electronic music scene for over two decades. The band, consisting of Tomas Høffding, Tomas Barfod, and Jeppe Kjellberg, has built a reputation for their electrifying fusion of sounds and legendary live performances, stretching from Circoloco to Coachella. Their recent album, UUUU, has received widespread critical acclaim, highlighting the emotive and transcendent nature of their music.
The DGTL USA lineup exemplifies the festival’s commitment to forward-thinking sonic curation. Alongside WhoMadeWho, the event will feature German deep house veteran Henrik Schwarz, known for his unique blend of classical and jazz elements in electronic music, and Irish DJ and producer Mano Le Tough, famed for his debut album Changing Days.
