Festivalist Q & A remix

Festivalist ’12: Hangout Music Fest – Big Gigantic Interview

Ever since discovering Big Gigantic prior to last year’s Hangout and sneaking into their late night performance with Pretty Lights, I’ve been following the duo’s every move. Somehow, I was able to interview Dominic Lalli and Jeremy Salken live and in person at the 3rd edition of Hangout. Below is an excerpt of our conversation:

You both are from Colorado and there are a lot of great acts from the state making diverse music. Jam bands, electronic acts like you and Pretty Lights and indie acts like Tennis. How does that diversity influence your sound?

(Jeremy) I think that adds to the community vibe with what everyone puts out. Its great to have all these different influences and everything flows from each other. You always hear someone put out something new and interesting. The Colorado scene in general has great camaraderie with everyone and trying to set the bar as high as possible.

Head to Atlanta Music Guide to read the rest of the interview where we discuss EDM, Big Gigantic’s first headlining slot at Red Rocks, Bonnaroo and more.
