Bingo Players at Soma

Dutch duo Bingo Players is bringing its Rattle and Roll North American tour right through San Diego, alongside Bassjackers and MAKJ. Bingo Players has been a heavy hitter in the electronic dance music genre with some of the biggest hits of 2011, such as “Rattle” and  “Cry (Just A Little),” the latter being used as a sample on Flo Rida’s hit, “I Cry.” Fans were shocked when Bingo Player’s own Paul Bäumer was diagnosed with cancer earlier this year. Though he has been sidelined from touring, his partner Maarten Hoogstraten will keep the energy going. As the expression goes, the show must go on. Bingo Players has been on tour nonstop from some of the largest North American festivals to traveling across the globe. You can’t miss the duo’s stop at Soma San Diego.
