Steve Aoki released a statement earlier this morning that will forever change festival performances by Steve Aoki. Today, Steve announced an end to festival cake throwing that he is iconic for. No longer can you go to Ultra or EDC on some dude's shoulders in the hopes of being hit in the face with diabetes and bass. Steve has better plans for his cake arsenal and he is strategically planning how to throw his cakes at his loyal fans. Read more in his personal statement below.
"To start the New Year I’m making some new changes and have decided I'll no longer be caking fans at most festivals. There might be an exception here or there but for the most part I'll be saving the CAKE for my headline shows, keeping it exclusive for the die hard fans. So if you want to get caked, come to one of my headline shows like the Neon Future Experience that is happening across the USA and Canada in Feb/March, or at my upcoming Manchester and London shows, or in Vegas and Ibiza. And to show my love to all the fans around the world that love the cake I wrote a song especially for YOU, properly titled CAKEFACE! It's up now and free to download at soundcloud.com/steveaoki. Love you to infinity and back. Now let's go forward into the neon future!!"
Steve isn't getting rid of the cake entirely. He just wants to keep his icing as something special between him and his loyal fans, which is beautiful. I am all for going to a Steve Aoki show and being caked in an intimate setting. You can listen to his new single "CAKEFACE!" below.
