The Chainsmokers’ stunning 2016/17 achievements include a just-won GRAMMY Award in the Best Dance Recording category, for their catchy, worldwide hit ‘Don’t Let Me Down featuring Daya'. Their tsunami-sized mega-hit “Closer” held down the #1 spot for three consecutive months – making it the biggest and longest-running #1 hit of 2016. Their three signature singles of 2016 have all been certified multi-platinum; “Roses” featuring Rozes (3X), “Don’t Let Me Down” featuring Daya (4X) and “Closer” featuring Halsey (4X). The duo has been topping the global streaming charts on a weekly basis for almost a year, with an incredible half a billion Spotify streams and YouTube views for “Closer,” alone.
They clocked a three-month reign at the top of the Digital Sales, Streaming Songs, and Hot Dance/Electronic chart, the first artist to top the Hot Dance/Electronic chart for 10 or more consecutive weeks with 3 #1 songs (comprising the above-mentioned hits), landing all three on the Top Ten of the coveted Hot 100 singles chart in 2016. Nominated for multiple Billboard, Teen Choice, MTV Video, American Music and GRAMMY Awards, they recently snared their first AMA win for Favorite Artist/Electronic Dance Music, and just last Sunday, February 12, 2017, they won a GRAMMY Award in the Best Dance Recording category. Their current Top 10 hit “Paris” is flying up the charts, being played in heavy rotation at radio stations nationwide.
The 2017 California Mid-State Fair runs July 19 through July 30. This year’s theme is “Come One, Come All…”
