What DJs Want... The World of DJ Riders Including the Overwhelming Steve Aoki's

In the future, if anyone ever says my DJ Rider is absurd, I will be more than happy to pull this post up! LOL. Recently, Steve Aoki's Rider (What he requires at performances) has been released, which made even my perfectly arched eyebrows rise. I mean.. "1/8 Oz of local grass, Large cheese pizza, 2 medium sized cakes that read DIM MAK???" Wait! There IS more, read the full rider below

Normally kept confidential, these are items from a few other of Dance Musics Biggest DJs:
