DJ Steve Aoki to play Harrisburg’s Riverfront Park this summer

Come June, you may be dancing in the park.

That’s the latest word from Harrisburg University’s ambitious concert series.

This morning, HU announced its second Riverfront Park concert of the summer, one that may have you kicking off your shoes to bust some moves.

Two-time Grammy-nominated DJ Steve Aoki will hit the stage on June 26, along with supporting artist Deorro.

This is the second Riverfront Park concert announced by HU recently. Last week, the university said that Icelandic band Of Monsters and Men will play on June 4.

Aoki burst on to the dance/electronic scene while still in college in the mid-1990s, soon establishing his own record label, events/lifestyle company and apparel line. In addition to his own records, he’s worked with such acts as the Chainsmokers, Bloc Party, the Bloody Beetroots, the Gossip and the Kills.

Aoki tours relentlessly, playing hundreds of dates a year, a schedule chronicled in Netflix’s 2016 documentary, “I’ll Sleep When I’m Dead.” His most recent studio album, “Neon Future III,” was released in late 2018.

He’ll be joined on stage by opener Deorro, a Los Angeles-based DJ whose song, “Five Hours,” peaked at No. 1 on Billboard’s dance/mix airplay chart.

Tickets for Aoki and Deorro go on sale at 10 a.m. on Friday. For more information or to buy tickets for HU Concert Series shows, visit the concert series website.
