On a mission to spread happiness while taking American dance music to the next level, the two wunderkinds of Louis the Child have been spreading glitzy, electronic bliss through stadium-ready anthems like “It’s Strange,” their collaboration with Icona Pop “Weekend,” and “Fire.” With more than 50 million Spotify streams, it’s obvious they are succeeding. Billboard calls their most recent release, “Love is Alive (featuring Elohim),” which really allows their versatility and emotional range to shine, “soft and soothing. Louis the Child’s set is scheduled to begin at 8 p.m.
