Generation Wild Tour at LIV February 14

American kids are really crazy. We party way harder than the rest of the world.

"Especially now, 'cause electronic music is blowing up, like, huge in the States! And these kids go nuts about electronic music!" says 17-year-old rising Spanish electronic dance music star Danny Avila, the coheadliner of the Generation Wild Tour. "We're just trying to create a concept where everybody can, like, y'know, get wild about electronic music and just have fun."

Avila is hitting the road with his very good buddy and party role model Deniz Koyu, and they'll both be joined by wild upstarts dBerrie and Mikael Weermets.

"Everything is getting bigger in America!" exclaims Koyu, unable to hide his excitement. "It's 20 shows in 25 days. And then we also have photographer Kirill. He's doing all these really crazy pictures of crazy girls, of wild parties."

And if anyone can take a manic EDM throwdown to the next level, it's Kirill Was Here. The New York City-based party paparazzo is famous for his champagne facials. They're exactly what they sound like. He splashes expensive bubbly into the open, waiting mouths of young women and then snaps pics of the action.

"He's coming with us, and I'm superscared," Avila says. "I think I'm going to take, like, three weeks off after this tour. It's going to be crazy. You can imagine.

"I think at the end of the tour, I will have lots of stories," the 17-year-old DJ laughs. "Definitely."

Koyu agrees, snickering: "Champagne facials and everything that's a bit nasty. That's basically the idea of this tour. We're gonna go really wild and party hard. We are bringing the music, and it will be a special show."

"Expect four DJ sets full of energy," Avila adds. "We're definitely going to put our hearts and souls in it to make it a super night that everyone will always remember."

Oh yeah, especially because the photo evidence of all the bubbly-sucking antics and other beat-freaking misbehavior will live forever on the Internet.

The world will never forget Generation Wild.
