MGK - who hit headlines recently with news that he would be playing Motley Crue drummer Tommy Lee in Netflix’s adaptation of the band’s biography ‘The Dirt’ - proved to be one of the most popular sets at Bay Dreams in early January.

“Undoubtedly one of the biggest draw cards of the night had to be MGK; fans chanting his name long before he arrived on stage… Arriving on stage in a red jacket and silver pants the hoards pressed against the barrier lost their collective minds as both MGK and his band of supremely talented musicians hit them with tracks such as ‘Golden God’, ‘At My Best’ and ‘Kiss The Sky’” - Ambient Light
