A lot of DJ’s expressed themselves via social media. Artists like Kayzo, Party Favor, Armin Van Buuren, Krewella, Steve Aoki, Hardwell, Calvin Harris, Deadmau5, Alesso, 3lau, Marshmello, Owsla, Martin Garrix to name a few. Many others expressed their reactions as well. Each one of these producers have performed and some even live in Vegas. It’s heartbreaking to see the city Las Vegas covered in grief.
