Iconic Trance DJ Paul Oakenfold Electrifies The Stage
The Pueblo of Santa Ana, N.M. – June 16, 2016

The Pueblo of Santa Ana, N.M. – June 16, 2016 – Santa Ana Star Casino, New Mexico’s Best Bet, welcomes trance music icon Paul Oakenfold to The Stage on Saturday, June 25. The show begins at 9 p.m.

“There are few musicians who have genuinely changed music the way that Paul Oakenfold has changed electronic dance music (EDM) throughout his career,” said Santa Ana Star Casino Marketing Operations Manager Jeff Jacot. “He played a major role in bringing the genre from obscurity to the forefront of the global music scene, and now he’s bringing his legendary trance sounds to The Stage in a full production complete with our a state-of-the-art light show, Co2 jets, confetti cannons and more.”

Widely considered a pioneer and icon of DJ culture, Paul Oakenfold has been making music for more than three decades. His career began in the late ‘70s when he was a funk DJ in London’s Covent Garden, but his groundbreaking approach to music has since led him to headline landmark music festivals, score Hollywood blockbusters, collaborate with worldwide music legends and serve as a resident DJ at the most prominent nightclubs from Las Vegas to Ibiza. Although he is best-known as a master of trance music, Oakenfold integrates influences that range from Chicago’s acid house and India’s Goa trance. The three-time Grammy-nominated DJ and producer was awarded the top honor of DJ Mag’s “Top 100 DJs” two years in a row.

Tickets to Paul Oakenfold’s performance at The Stage at Santa Ana Star Casino cost $25 and can be purchased online at Guests must be 21 years old or older to attend. For more information, please call (505) 771-5680.
