Steve Aoki smokes the crowd
Friday night, Chicago's biggest house party was at the UIC Pavilion, where Waka Flocka, Borgore, Pharrell, and Steve Aoki kicked off the Aokify America tour. Though diverse in genre, all four acts seemed to draw the same, high energy crowd which made for a good ol' fashioned rager.

Waka Flocka towered over the crowd, dreads swingin,' yell'n "squad."

Borgore kept the crowd jumpin' and chanting "cake."
Pharrell... Pharrell took the stage smooth as you'd think he would and brought the funk for a lil while.
And ultimately, Steve Aoki, notorious for throwing a hell of a party, threw a cake in your face, crowd rafting, co2 blasting par-tee. Yes at least three - willing, mind you - people took cakes to the dome while Aoki danced about the stage like he was an eight year old high as hell off some bite size snickers. Don't get me wrong, as would I. Someone just beg's for you to throw cake at their face? That's gong show. Sign me up, Steve.
Look closely, Steve Aoki is throwing cake at a fan, and it's pretty great.
From beginning to end, the party never stopped, and the artists supported each other along the way. Waka came out during Borgore's set (lookin forward to their collab), and everyone stood by the stage to see one another perform. The unique billing of this tour is sure to bring fans of both hip hop and edm together in a way rarely seen before, a trend we hope to see continue moving forward.
More of Steve Aoki being awesome.
