Frisco, Texas (March 4, 2024) – Award-winning electronic DJ and production duo, The Chainsmokers, accompanied by special guest Surf Mesa, will ignite the stage with a monumental, full-scale production at Toyota Stadium in Frisco, Texas on Saturday, May 4. This electrifying concert will follow the 2024 National Soccer Hall of Fame induction ceremony taking place earlier in the day, where soccer legends Tim Howard, Francisco Marcos, Josh McKinney, and Tisha Venturini-Hoch will be honored.

The Chainsmokers have consistently elevated popular music by ceaselessly challenging it. The GRAMMY® Award-winning RIAA Diamond-certified duo—Drew Taggart and Alex Pall—have broken boundaries between pop, indie, electronic, alternative, and rock. By doing so, they have set the tempo for culture and proven inescapable, delivering some of the biggest songs in the world, hosting a historic multi-year Las Vegas residency, packing arenas on multiple continents, launching first-of-its-kind games in the metaverse, and selling tens of millions of singles along the way. Thus far, they have scored three Diamond singles, namely the Billboard Hot 100 #1 “Closer” [feat. Halsey], “Something Just Like This” [with Coldplay], and “Don’t Let Me Down” [feat. Daya]. The latter garnered a GRAMMY® Award for “Best Dance Recording.” 
As cultural arbiters and tastemakers, they’ve also fueled crossover success for collaborators as diverse as Lennon Stella (on “Takeaway” with Illenium) and Kelsea Ballerini (on “This Feeling”). Their 2017 full-length debut, Memories…Do Not Open, notably bowed at #1 on the Billboard 200 and paved the way for gold-certified albums Sick Boy [2018] and World War Joy [2019].
After four years of nonstop touring and music releases, the band took the time to rediscover themselves and spent two full years creating their musically evolved and very personal album, 2022’s So Far So Good. It marked their fourth #1 debut on the Billboard Top Dance/Electronic Albums Chart, notching praise from Pitchfork and more. In search of new creative lanes, 2023 saw them returning to their musical roots - leaning into different sonic textures and handpicking buzzing developing collaborators.
They launched their Summertime Friends release package in October, filled with collaborations spanning across dance, pop, and even Latin genres. The Chainsmokers continue to evolve as musicians and songwriters, bringing popular music with them into the future and on the road.


No matter how dark things get, Surf Mesa remains a dreamer. The 20-year-old songwriter and producer spent much of 2020 honing the escapist energy of the nostalgic electronic ballads he's been working toward since he got a copy of FL Studio in third grade. The Seattle artist makes "music for good feels," which made his music a breath of fresh air in a tough year. Both of his beloved 2020 singles — "ily (i love you baby)" featuring Emilee and "Somewhere" featuring Gus Dapperton — offer romance and refuge for tired minds, drenched in gossamer synth and fueled by insistent drums. And his latest, the delicate "Carried Away" with Madison Beer, continues in this windswept tradition, the sonic equivalent of staring into the sunset and imagining a better life more full of love. This placid mindset has clearly connected. "ily" was recently RIAA certified Platinum after almost 2 billion global streams and nearly four billion TikTok videos. The song hit #1 on Billboard's Dance/Electronic chart and #2 on Top 40 radio, and "Somewhere" is right behind it, landing on Spotify's hallowed New Music Friday out of the gate and garnering placements on dozens of playlists across platforms since.
His whirlwind rise also earned him remixing duty on Marshmello and Halsey's "Be Kind," and Shawn Mendes' "Wonder" — both fitting titles for Surf's heartwarming music to enter mainstream EDM and pop. By year's end, "ily" placed on Spotify and Amazon's top songs lists, setting him up for even bigger successes this year — VEVO has already named him a DSCVR Artist To Watch for 2021. And yet, after all this, he continues to make music at home alone, the same way he's worked since he was a kid holed up in his room making beats between Counter-Strike matches. He has humble aims: to make catchy, chill pop music and give others a way to "feel better about their day." Listening to Surf, it's hard not to.
