Last year American DJ and record producer Diplo came to Islamabad and rocked the usually quiet capital with a jolt of energy
Obviously, Pakistanis were excited as he did his own rendition of Imran Khan’s ‘Amplifier’ and of course, played the much famous ‘Lean on’.
Not only did fans had a great time, Diplo too enjoyed his stay in Pakistan very much as was evident with his Insta
I spent 24 hours in Islamabad… Meeting young musicians, new fans, students, embassy folks, parents, artists, security guards, cricket players & bootleggers… I drank a lot of tea ate some amazing food and smoked part of a hash brick that looked like it could kill a small elephant. A few hours later I played a concert in the city in a beautiful amphitheater in a park for so many awesome kids that knew all the music. I couldn't believe it.. At the end of the show everyone backstage gave me hugs and hi fives and told me it was a good time but it didn't feel normal. I almost felt like crying because here we all were at the end of the show with our peace signs in the air at the end of the concert doing something that might be arbitrary for us … On any Saturday night.. We do it every weekend and we don't realize it's a privilege.. For these kids from Islamabad Lahore or Karachi or the countryside this is the first time they have ever done that and it might not happen again for a long time. But tonight everyone danced and sang together and wished for a better future and maybe it might make it easier for it to happen. Thanks so much for inviting me ??✌️
In fact, he loved Pakistan so much that he has decided to come back and bring the house down once again

Diplo is scheduled to perform in Islamabad sometime in February 2018. The ‘artist will perform with Pakistan’s very own Adil Omar and Talal Qureshi with the event being organized by TMWRK.
Earlier, US-based EDM duo Krewella also announced their visit to Pakistan this month but they just postponed their performance
“Pakistan Krew. Our show in December has been postponed until further notice. We’re SO sorry that we won’t be able to see you this year. please stay tuned for updates. Shukria! Jahan & Yasmine” read a statement from their official page.
Nonetheless, Pakistanis are glad that Diplo is coming once again
This is going to be exciting! ??
