Atlantic City Beach
(Philadelphia/Atlantic City) April 16, 2018 – EDM/pop duo The Chainsmokers – who were just crowned the No. 1 DJs of the year on the Billboard Dance 100 – have been added to the 2018 Atlantic City BeachFest Concert Series, taking place on Sunday, July 29 on the Atlantic City Beach with special guest BAZZI. This will be the only area appearance for the duo, who have been busy in 2018 with a European tour, Vegas residency, a headlining performance at the 2018 Ultra Music Festival and a series of newly released music that’s climbing the Dance and Pop music charts.
The Grammy winning group, comprised of Alex Pall and Drew Taggart, are set to bring their non-stop, high-energy, explosive performance to the beach. Fans can expect to hear all their favorite songs, like the chart-topping hits “Closer,” “Paris,” “Don’t Let Me Down,” “Something Just Like This,” “Roses” & more!
“We are so excited for our show in Atlantic City on July 29th. We can’t think of a better place to be during the summer,” said The Chainsmokers. “As New Yorkers we always used to come down to AC this time of year and the vibes and weather was just perfect. Back then, we were playing in front of a few hundred people if that so to be returning now and have the chance to do our show properly in front of tens of thousands of people is pretty surreal. We are going to be bringing a show AC has never seen before and look forward to sharing this really special moment with families, fans and people just coming to have a great weekend away!”
Tickets go on sale to the general public on Friday, April 20 at noon. Tickets will be available at Ticketmaster.com, Ticketmaster Outlets or by-phone at 800-745-3000.

Comprised of Alex Pall and Drew Taggart, their signature sound deftly reaches across indie, progressive and pop realms.

In 2016, the group catapulted to worldwide stardom with 3 certified multi-platinum hits. “Roses”, featuring Rozes, from their Gold certified debut EP Bouquet, was a 4X platinum smash that shot to #1 on Billboard’s Top Dance/Electronic Albums chart. “Don’t Let Me Down” featuring Daya, included on duo’s second platinum selling EP titled Collage, went 4x platinum and was a top 5 Billboard Hot 100 hit. “Closer”, featuring Halsey was also included on the Collage EP and went 7X platinum, going on to became the longest running #1 single of 2016 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.
In April of 2017, the group released their debut album via Disruptor/Columbia Records titled “Memories…Do Not Open.” The album debuted at No. 1 in the U.S. on the Billboard 200 chart with total consumption of 221,000 units and produced the global, 2X platinum certified smash “Paris,” which debuted at #7, marking the duo’s highest first week entrance on the Billboard Hot 100 chart to date. The 2X platinum certified “Something Just Like This,” features Coldplay front man Chris Martins on vocals, and peaked in the top 5 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. The track most recently earned the group a 2018 Grammy nomination for “Best Pop Duo/Group Performance,” as well as three 2018 iHeart Music Award nominations for “Song of the Year,” “Best Collaboration,” and “Dance Song of the Year.”
