Cashmere Cat to play Dillo Day

Tyler Pager, Editor in Chief

EDM artist Cashmere Cat will perform as the penultimate act at Dillo Day, Mayfest announced Friday night.

Cashmere Cat is the fourth act announced for the annual music festival, which will be held on May 21.

Cashmere Cat, whose real name is Magnus August Høiberg, has worked with artists including Kanye West, Ariana Grande, Usher and Ludacris. The 27-year-old producer released his debut EP Mirror Maru in October 2012. He is expected to release his debut album in 2016.

Mayfest director of concerts Yumiko Mannarelli said Cashmere Cat’s collaboration with other artists and his upcoming album made him a good fit for the festival.

“We think, as a DJ, he will be really well received by the Northwestern community,” the Communication junior said. “We think that he offers more diversity to our lineup just because he has a very unique sound and has really pioneered a lot of new music in the electronic genre.”

The artist will join headliner ScHoolboy Q, Anderson .Paak and The Mowgli’s at this year’s festival.
