  • Performance Guest Announcement: Mystery Skulls

    Luis Dubuc was looking for a change of pace when he started his dance/electro-soul act, Mystery Skulls in 2011. And what started off as a new passion project quickly turned into something larger than life.

    Fans were quickly enchanted by the upbeat, groovy sounds Mystery Skulls was producing. As fans grew rabid for more content, Luis continued to produce new and exciting music that they could lose themselves in. The result is an impressive discography that has amassed over 100 million streams and nearly 550,000 monthly listeners on Spotify alone.

    Back to Life (2019) and Now or Never (2020), the latest two full length albums from Mystery Skulls have shown that there’s no limit to the project’s success. Having self-produced and self-released both albums, Luis poured himself into each album and the fans immediately connected with that. This landed both albums at #1 on the iTunes Electronic charts, surpassing legendary acts like The Chemicals Brothers and Moby.

    Following the release of Back to Life, Mystery Skulls hit the road, aiming to reach as many fans as possible, selling out shows throughout North America and the UK. Luis is passionate about creating powerful moments of joy and release for fans through his live sets, and because of that he has been able to take Mystery Skulls to a wide array of events from the Voodoo Music and Arts Experience, to opening for Busta Rhymes at the Cannes Film Festival, and the ESPN X-Games.

    Every live set is a chance to let go. Mystery Skulls adds a layer of intrigue to each performance with his backlit set, leaving him a shadowy, pulsating figure in the night. The anonymity translates onto his diverse set of fans, leading them to feel free to lose themselves on the dance floor for the evening.

    The future is limitless and Mystery Skulls is taking advantage of every second of it. Join in on
    the adventure!
