Australian DJ Dirty South visited North America for two months recently, and he wrapped up his tour at Los Angeles' Hollywood Palladium with a massive, sold-out show over Thanksgiving weekend. Here, Dirty South gives a behind-the-scenes look into the bittersweet exhilaration of his closing gig, one that marked the five-year anniversary of his first Los Angeles appearance.

Dirty South's live show expanded beyond just audio with dancers and performers themed around his track "City of Dreams." "It's based on a dreamcatcher," Dirty South tells Rolling Stone, noting the hit song's artwork. And after five years, he's built a special bond with the City of Angels. "Since [my first L.A. show], every L.A. show was been incredible," he says. "The crowd just really get into it. They know the music; they love to rage."
