By anyone's standards, 2013 was a great year for electronic music. Heavy hitters like Avicii and Calvin Harris went mainstream, show attendance swelled, and everyone in the industry raked in the $$$. For some, it was a better than good year – it was their ‘breakthrough year' where they were vaulted into being top billed talent at the major shows – sometimes pulling more fans than other longtimers and household names. We like to give praise where it is due. So whether it was amazing management, great PR, perfect production skills, or just really mindblowingly good luck, congratulations to all these producers for killing it in 2013.
