Featuring performances from award winners ILLENIUM, Los Angeles' own Moby - the recipient of the evening's Lifetime Achievement Award, the first US performance of Orbital in over 5 years, a live set from favorites Autograf, and let's not forget - food trucks galore and so much more - this was an unforgettable night for all in attendance.
