When Scottish electopop producer and vocalist Calvin Harris appeared in Scottsdale in January, he nearly caused a riot. Thousands of club kids and EDM fans jammed into the now-defunct Myst to watch the 28-year-old electronica wunderkind perform his hits -- including the blockbuster track "Feel So Close," which resulted in an off-the-chain reaction from the S.R.O. crowd.

Needless to say, Harris -- who's fandom has only gotten larger since then -- is likely to draw as big a crowd (if not bigger) when he performs at the latest Sound Wave Music Festival this fall at Big Surf in Tempe.
