It's the end of an era. Steve Aoki announced today on social media that he will no longer be caking fans...at least at festivals...with "an exception here or there". In order to keep riots from starting, he also released a wild-natured free download, "Cake Face", commemorating the indulgence.
I remember the first time I saw Steve Aoki throw a cake into the crowd. The sweet deliciousness plastering people's faces. I thought, that's EDM. That's where I need to be. It's a sad day, especially if your New Years resolution was to get caked.
Since the cake throws will still occur at his headline shows, you can still make it happen. There's no telling how this will affect his smaller shows, or what kind of cake-crazed cult following will be created, but one thing is for sure - he's not just going to stand up there and sit still. What will be next?
