The most important electronic music festival in Spain, Dreambeach, has announced today as the headliners of its 8th edition (Villaricos-Palomares, August 5-9) THE CHAINSMOKERS. The 2016 Grammy-winning American electronic pop and EDM duo for their unforgettable anthem ‘Don’t Let Me Down’, go on to be the highest paid DJs in the world, according to Forbes magazine.

THE CHAINSMOKERS are the promised replacement by the Dreambeach organisation after the cancellation of French artist DJ SNAKE. Apart from their sporadic appearances during the summer in Ushuaïa Ibiza, they rarely come to Spain.

In addition to the Grammy, they treasure multiple awards, including seven Billboard Music Awards and, most recently, the 2019 MTV Video Music Award for their song ‘Call you mine’, alongside Bebe Rexha. In the last five years they have accumulated numerous hits and number one, from their first great success éxito # Selfie ’to‘ Closer ’or‘ Something Just Like This ’, in which they collaborated with Coldplay.
This summer THE CHAINSMOKERS. will shine before 25,000 people on the spectacular Dreambeach mainstage, the same stage where other stars such as Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, Alesso, Alison Wonderland or DJ Diesel, the musical alias of Shaquille O’Neal, will parade.
The electronic macrofestival has already completed 80% of its main programming and continues to work on the artistic and technical preparations for its 8th edition. “In these difficult times, we want to encourage the dreamers and continue fighting so that we all have a wonderful summer,” said its artistic director, Gonçalo Miranda.
