Carl Cox is, simply put, one of the biggest DJs of all time. The English selector remains at the vanguard of dance music and club culture decades into his career, thanks to a relentless work ethic and a keen sense of knowing how to navigate the often divergent waters of accessibility and credibility. Cox’s sets are consistently rooted in the timeless sounds of house and techno music (reference 1997’s F.A.C.T. 2 mix) — and there is really no better place to experience real house and techno than outdoors on a big sound system, which is an opportunity you will have on Saturday when Cox and friends — Nic Fanciulli and Kölsch — take over downtown’s Grand Park.

Carl Cox performs at 4 p.m. on Saturday, February 29 at Grand Park.
