Steve Aoki: The cake-throwing EDM superstar spun Saturday night before heading out to Los Angeles to spin on Sunday and then back on the East Coast to spin at the closing of Revel in Atlantic City. Holy frequent flyer miles, Batman.

Big Daddy Kane: Made in America has made it a habit to dust off some old school hip-hop icons for its shows. In 2012, they had Run DMC and in 2013 it was Public Enemy. This year they brought in one of New York’s finest – Big Daddy Kane. The man behind ‘Ain’t No Half-Steppin’ thrilled the crowd at Made in America.

======================================================================================================================================================================
Cherub: Cherub, comprised of Jordan Kelley and Jason Huber, broke onto the scene with their hit “Doses and Mimosas” and took the afternoon crowd of MIA by storm.

======================================================================================================================================================================

Chromeo: Speaking of duos that broke out in 2014, Chromeo killed it this year scoring countless commercials and television trailers. For those in the know, Chromeo has been the electronically funky heroes to their nights out.

======================================================================================================================================================================
City and Colour The band our photog for the night wanted to shoot more than anyone. Lead singer Dallas Green (not to be confused with the former New York Yankees manager) killed it as one of the top bands at Made in America Day 1.
