Illenium makes history at Sofi Stadium in Los Angeles

Will Fisher
The SoFi Stadium, having a capacity of 70,000 attendees, sold out the first night of the Trilogy show and introduced a second night of the show due to popular demand.

This past weekend, Illenium performed his iconic Trilogy show at the SoFi Stadium in Los Angeles.

The electronic dance artist whose defining career started all the way back in 2008 performed two different nights, with openers Netsky and Trivecta leading into three separate set performances by Illenium himself. The show also broke an unintended record in the dance world, reported by Illenium to be the largest laser show at a dance concert ever performed. 

This event isn’t the only time Illenium has made waves in the EDM scene, with major festival performances at Lost Lands, EDC, Lollapalooza, Electric Forest and even hosting his own festival Ember Shores in Cancun. 

Illenium has collaborated with many big names in the music industry such as The Chainsmokers, Excision, Sueco, Jon Bellion and many more both within his own albums and on stand-alone singles. His growth has led to an audience that constantly pushes his sound into the spotlight, leading him in 2023 to break the record for the most tickets sold for a single electronic music headliner ever in the U.S. during his show at Empower Stadium in Denver, Colorado.

The Trilogy show follows Illenium’s recent tour run commemorating his new album self titled “Illenium,” on which he brought out a variety of support such as bands like I Prevail and All Time Low alongside huge electronic names such as Sullivan King, Svdden Death, William Black and Said the Sky. 

This tour run also included a stop at Cleveland’s own Jacobs Pavilion, bringing along artists IMANU and Said the Sky to open up for Illenium’s live performance. 

However, previous Trilogy shows have highlighted Illenium’s older albums, combining both his newer songs with his older ones. The show at Sofi Stadium followed a similar format, with the first two sets by Illenium once again showing love to his older albums followed by a live performance similar to that of his live tour show.

Illenium also brought out a number of surprise special guests during his show to perform his songs. Two of these guest appearances were none other than Chris Motionless of Motionless in White and Avril Lavinge, who performed live versions of their respective tracks “Nothing Ever After” and “Eyes Wide Shut” from his “Illenium” album. 

But to the surprise of many, Seven Lions made an appearance to debut a new song collaboration between himself and Illenium. Seven Lions, much like Illenium, has carved out his audience in the electronic scene, merging genres of melodic dubstep and trance to create his own signature sound. The two have previously collaborated on songs such as “Rush Over Me” and “Beautiful Strangers,” but the debut of their unreleased song “Not Even Love” has once again reignited the love of their sound combination amongst their fans.

While this weekend’s Trilogy show may have come to a close, the joy that Illenium has sparked with so many fans continues to burn bright. If anything, the Sofi Stadium show has proven that Illenium is a frontline force in EDM with nothing holding back the artistic style and musical talent he’s cultivated for his brand. 

With his Trilogy shows continuing to build momentum, there’s no doubt that Illenium will blow the minds of fans across the world with his next Trilogy appearance, along with enticing new fans to dive deep into his discography.
