Hailing from Sweden, Galantis, which includes "I Love It" co-writer/producer Linus Eklöw and Grammy winning producer Christian Karlsson, became a huge name in the EDM circuit with their 2014 hit "Runaway (U & I)", which reached platinum status in the States and gained a Grammy nomination for Best Dance Recording. With the release of their 2015 debut album Pharmacy, the duo continued to dish out hits such as "Gold Dust," "Peanut Butter Jelly," and "In My Head." The outfit have been praised for their performances at Coachella, Electric Daisy Carnival, and Ultra Japan.
Yesterday, the duo revealed plans to have some special headlining shows in the midst of several festival appearances. On March 11, the act will have a performance inside the Marquee Nightclub in Las Vegas. The following week, the duo will play at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium in San Francisco. They will head back to Europe for a performance inside London's 02 Academy Brixton (April 1), which will be followed up with two back to back performances inside New York City's Hammerstein Ballroom on April 6 & April 7. A performance on April 18 will be announced in the near future. Update: Galantis will be playing The Novo by Microsoft at LA Live in downtown Los Angeles. Click here for tickets.
