Ansel Elgort has lined up one of his biggest gigs yet as a dance DJ by joining the bill for New York City’s Pier of Fear event this weekend.
The Fault in Our Stars actor recently revealed he has been secretly building up his resume as an electronic music producer for several years under the moniker Ansolo, and now he is preparing to perform alongside the likes of top DJs Nicky Romero, Dirty South and Don Diablo on Saturday (November 1), when he will help close out the two-night dance party at Pier 94 in Manhattan in front of nearly 10,000 revelers.
Eddie Dean, founder of event organizers RPM Presents and president of club hotspot Pacha New York, tells press, “The first time I heard him (Ansolo) at Pacha, I thought he was a talented DJ.
“It wasn’t until the next day when my daughters asked why I didn’t tell them he was playing, did I realize Ansel also acted! Had no idea he was an actor – just a good DJ!”
