Major Lazer shows are unlike anything else you'll see at an EDM fest.

The Diplo-led crew's performances are an enthralling orgy of confetti-spraying machine guns, hyper-sexual dancing, and human-sized hamster balls, all set to a peculiar mixture of dancehall, dubstep, pop, and every other genre the always-restless Diplo feels like throwing in the mix.

Leading this circus when they take the stage at Ultra Music Festival for the second consecutive weekend will be Carol City native Walshy Fire, who replaced diminutive daggering don Skerrit Bwoy as the group's MC last year.
