    1. You do not know who Shaquille O’Neal is?

      The lineup is aimed at 18-30 year olds…. would be kinda weird if you are outside that demographic and knew who they were…

    2. Not necessarily weird, JJ (I admit to being a bit out of that range but am a huge fan of EDM and know all those acts), LOL. Solid line-up even if they’ve had better ones in the past. Kaskade will always be a favorite.

  1. Shaq was scheduled to headline another party at Pan Am Plaza, but it got cancelled rather last minute. It would’ve been a great send off for the plaza before becoming the Signia.
