The Event
‘Steve Aoki live in Nepal’ is the biggest EDM event in Nepal till date. We are expecting a good turnout as the artist doesn't need any introduction being in the world top seven and Guinness record holder. There is no doubt that he is one of the DJs in the scene today. 

Ticket Details
The tickets are available in various KTMCTY outlets in Dubar Marg, Thamel, Jawlakhel, Boudha and Chuchhepati. Interested ones can also call at 9803137169 / 9801034345 / 9801074430 for the tickets. 

Reason for inviting Steve
Steve Aoki has always been my personal favorite, while our main partner Team 61LIVE from Hong Kong has been working closely with Steve and his management around the globe for a long time now. So, we thought it would be great to have him in Nepal. 

His response to invitation 
Steve and his team are very excited to visit Nepal as it’s their first time here. He is also the first DJ from DJ MAG TOP 10 to perform in Nepal. It’s going to be a magical experience for the EDM lover. 

Challenges in bringing Steve to Nepal
The past two months have been challenging for us as only a limited population of our country know about international artists and DJs. We made tremendous efforts to educate people about the artist and to meet the artist’s technical requirements. I am making sure that everything falls in place on time. But, we are confident that the stress is going to be worth our effort at the end of the day. 

About other DJs 
We also have great talents within Nepal when it comes to DJs. It was a tough process for the team to short list the DJs. But we are happy to have talented DJs like DJ Rabbit, DJ Finzok, DJ Bkicool, DJ Norchen, DJ Phuchhey, DJ Punit, DJ Krayon, DJ Redmus and DJ Suren. 

Your Expectation
Steve Aoki is known for his energetic performances with some great remixes. With one of the best venues in town, Club Déjà Vu, we are hopeful to give the attendees the experience of their lifetime with good management, easy access to bar and ticket counters, and of course a great show.
