Watch Lil Nas X make a surprise appearance during Diplo’s EDC performance

Electric Daisy Carnival finally made its return to Las Vegas following numerous pandemic-related delays over the last year. While some things change, mainly swapping the summer swelter for an October run this year, others, thankfully never do. The usual swell of talent took over the Speedway for a blockbuster weekend of performances and special guest appearances, marking some of the most notable moments of the year, and while EDC’s comeback certainly held a special atmosphere with everyone finally back together again, the event was largely business as usual bringing a larger-than-life production to reality, jam-packed with highlights all weekend. One such high note was Diplo‘s cosmicMEADOW performance on Saturday night (October 23), when he invited Lil Nas X on stage to rekindle a live “Old Town Road” reunion.

The 22-year-old hitmaker performed a medley of charters including his record-breaking debut single, the Jack Harlow-assisted “Industry Baby” and pearl clutchers’ nightmare, “Montero (Call Me By Your Name).” No stranger to the well-placed surprise guest appearance, Diplo has brought out the likes of Justin Bieber, Keisza, Diddy, and many more over the years, adding a raucous surprise performance by Lil Nas X to those ranks as EDC makes a memorable return to Las Vegas. Watch a recap below.
