Eight things we learned from Illenium’s Reddit AMA

Coloradoan producer href="http://www.dancingastronaut.com/tag/illenium/" >Illenium has been making a name for himself over the past few years with his innovative style of melodic beats, massive collaborations and his debut album, Ashes. This summer, he seems to be on almost every major festival lineup, with stops at  href="http://dancingastronaut.com/tag/bonnaroo/" >Bonnaroo, href="http://dancingastronaut.com/tag/electric-forest/" >Electric Forest, href="http://dancingastronaut.com/tag/edc/" >EDC, href="http://www.dancingastronaut.com/tag/firefly/" >Firefly, and more.
