The Stage Welcomes Dillon Francis
The Pueblo of Santa Ana, N.M. – July 1, 2015

The Pueblo of Santa Ana, N.M. – July 1, 2015 – Santa Ana Star Casino, New Mexico’s Best Bet, welcomes electronic dance music (EDM) superstar Dillon Francis to The Stage on Friday, July 10. Doors open at 9 p.m.

Dillon Francis grew up in Los Angeles, Calif., with aspirations of pursuing a career in art. After briefly training as a photographer, he interned with EDM producer Cory Enemy and began producing his own music. Inspired by the emergence of moombahton—a fusion of house music and reggaeton—his fresh sound caught the attention of fellow American producer Diplo, and together the two released “Que Que” in 2011. Quickly rising to fame with bass-heavy dancefloor hits including “Masta Blasta,” “Money Makin” and “Without You,” Francis became the first moombahton artist to reach No. 1 on Beatport’s “Top Five Releases” chart, and he was named an “Artist to Watch” by MTV’s Clubland in 2013. Today, Dillon Francis headlines stages at the world’s most prestigious music festivals including Camp Bisco, Electric Daisy Carnival, Coachella, Tomorrow World, Electric Zoo and Ultra Music Festival. The “Get Low” producer released his first official studio album, “Money Sucks, Friends Rule” in 2014 and continues to tour frequently while maintaining residencies at Las Vegas hot spots including XS Nightclub, Surrender and Encore Beach Club.  

Tickets to Dillon Francis’s performance at The Stage at Santa Ana Star Casino range between $25 and $40. VIP tickets are also available for $100 each and include exclusive access to the Sky Level VIP lounge and VIP bar, complimentary specialty-themed cocktails from 9 p.m. to 11 p.m., expedited entrance into the nightclub and more. Tickets can be purchased online at www.thestageatthestar.com. Attendees must be 21 years old or older. For more information, please call (505) 771-5680.
