Machine Gun Kelly added to Snowdown SIA lineupBy Ru Johnson | January 22nd, 2013 | No Comments »
Snowdown SIA, the entertainment portion of the SIA Snow Show, which brings thousands of enthusiasts to the Denver metro area, has added Machine Gun Kelly to its lineup. The event is on Feb. 2 at City Hall Amphitheatre and already boasts a lineup featuring Just Blaze and Bauuer.
The SIA industry event brings close to 20,000 visiting winter sports devotees to the Denver area to check the latest trends in snow culture, educational seminars, product presentations and more. This is the 42nd trade show and the fourth year the event has been held in Colorado.
DJ Largechild will be spinning on the “Got Bass” VIP stage while DJ Cavem Moetavation will hold down the hosting duties. The addition of MGK to the lineup ups the rap ante on the main stage. MGK most recently hinted at a possible collaboration with Eminem.
Machine Gun Kelly rose to fame in 2006 with the release of his mixtape “Stamp of Approval” and has since signed to Bad Boy and Interscope Records. The Cleveland MC is known for his outlandish stage presence and rapid-fire flow.
MGK will share the night with Bauuer and Just Blaze who are carving out their lane of “trap” music. They recently released the track “Higher.” The track features a line from Jay-Z’s song “You Don’t Know” (Blueprint II) and a thumping bassline.
