DJ Paris Hilton is closing out the 2015 Big E with a performance on the Court of Honor Stage, sponsored by xfinity, Sunday, Oct. 4 at 8 p.m. The show is free with admission to The Big E.
Paris Hilton, the “It Girl” turned entrepreneur, has built an empire in the public spotlight. Since becoming a pioneer of reality TV with her hit show “The Simple Life,” she has done it all. From modeling and landing major acting roles to releasing a fragrance line and becoming a successful DJ, she is truly an unstoppable force in the entertainment industry.
Hilton released her self-titled debut album, Paris, in 2006. The album reached No. six on The Billboard 200 and sold over 600,000 copies worldwide. The album’s gold certified lead single, “Stars Are Blind,” became a worldwide hit, reaching the top ten in 17 countries. The song peaked at no. 18 on the Billboard Hot 100 and reached No. 1 on the US Hot Dance Club Songs chart.
Following a break from the music world, Hilton made her debut as a DJ in 2012. Her first single, “Good Time,” featuring rapper Lil Wayne, was released in 2013, followed by “Come Alive” the next year. The latest single, “High Off My Love,” was released in May. Her second studio album is due out soon.
“We take pride in the variety of music offered at The Big E every year,” John Juliano, Eastern States Exposition director of Special Events, said. “At the beginning of the Electronic Dance Music (EDM) boom, we had DJ Pauly D perform – a move that proved to be a big success, attracting thousands of fans to the Fair.”
“When searching for an EDM act for The Big E this year, Paris was an obvious choice. Paris Hilton is a household name and has established herself as a successful DJ, being a favorite in all of the top Las Vegas venues and around the world,” Juliano said.
The Big E takes place Sept. 18 – Oct. 4, 2015 in West Springfield, Mass. The 17-day event is the largest fair in the Northeast and the fifth largest fair in North America.
