Bounce Music Festival @ Mesa Amphitheatre

If you've attended a major music festival, club night, or dance party within the past 12 months, it's almost certain that you've heard "Spaceman" being blasting over the sound system. The otherworldly six-minute track, crafted by Dutch-house wunderkind Hardwell (pictured) earlier this year, has pretty much become the new "Levels," as its insanely popular and is bordering on overexposure due to its inclusion in countless DJ mixes. "Spaceman" has even been blended with any number of pop tracks (most famously with Gotye's "Someone I Used to Know") and is guaranteed to be a part of Hardwell's set at Mesa Amphitheatre, 263 North Center Street, when he swings through the Valley on Friday, October 26, as a part of the Bounce Music Festival. The 24-year-old is co-headlining the touring music festival with Eurodance ace Martin Solveig, who has a big-time club banger of his own ("The Night Out"). Turkish-born DJ/producer Deniz Koyu and Dutch remix king Dyro also are scheduled to perform at the six-hour EDM extravaganza. Gates open at 4 p.m. Admission is $35.
