KIIS-FM's Wango Tango
KIIS-FM stopped short of calling superstar Dutch DJ Tiësto the headliner of its 16th annual Wango Tango festival - he's merely "closing the show." However the venerable Top 40 station wants to spin it, clearly it has chosen to turn the otherwise safer-than-safe pop festival into an EDM dance party. Yes, Maroon 5 are back - for the third straight year - and yes, someone at KIIS still thinks we should care about OneRepublic. But look further down the bill and you'll find super-producer Calvin Harris, the man behind Rihanna's "We Found Love"; electro/dubstep upstart Zedd of "Clarity" fame; and New York duo The Chainsmokers, whose tongue-in-cheek club hit "Selfie" has been everywhere this year. Throw in Shakira's hip shaking and Kid Ink's EDM-flavored club rap, and this year's Wango Tango is basically a rave with a Paramore set in the middle of it.
