The Chainsmokers headlined Corn Exchange the other night, bringing with them their very own mates ‘Digital Farm Animals’. Years ago most of us agreed that the Chainsmokers would die out as a one-hit-wonder after the hit single “#SELFIE.” But most of us were wrong.
Now, much more than creators of a humorous club-raver, The Chainsmokers are on their way to becoming one of the most well-known American electronic groups of modern time. They’re currently the third most streamed artist on Spotify in the world, and right here in the Mile High they’ve gone from a headlining set at O2 ABC in Glasgow with capacity of 1,300 last year to headlining a sold out Edinburgh Corn Exchange last night with capacity of 3,000 fans.
The Chainsmokers performed their hits throughout the their set including massive No.1 single “Closer”. Andrew Taggart and Alex Pall got up high on stage to perform their single to get the crowd going, the atmosphere was unreal… the crowds energy and engaging with them was unreal.
It was truly a large projected showcase of the electronic genre of music playing in a large hall which engaged with fans well. It’s safe to say that Edinburgh will remember such a performance from one of most upcoming great electronic groups to come from New York in USA.
