The identity of Lollapalooza’s secret act “Kausea” has been revealed

on July 25, 2014, 7:31pm

One of the more intriguing acts appearing on this year’s Lollapalooza lineup has no presence on Facebook and Twitter, nor does it register any search results on Google. Yet “Kausea” is set to play a prime Sunday night slot on the Palladia stage, right before Skrillex. Some have speculated the mystery act to be Metallica, who’ve been known to deliver surprise performances under nondescript monikers. Others predicted it to be an EDM act affiliated with Skrillex, such as Zedd or Porter Robinson. A few have even gone as far to believe it’s Daft Punk.

Tonight, we finally received the answer, and — sorry, it’s not Metallica, Zedd, or Daft Punk. Rather, Kausea is none other than Ethan Kath, one-half of Crystal Castles.

Crystal Castles originally started as Kath’s solo project in 2003, and he continues to maintain a healthy schedule of solo DJ sets. Below, you can watch a fan-shot video of a performance of his from 2011.
