Snails performed his first United States Concert in 2014; he quickly became a staple of music festivals and a name recognized by EDM fans across the world. Today, Snails continually releases online tracks, throws his own yearly Sluggtopia concert, and even plans to release a comic book called THE SLUGGERNAUT by the end of 2019.
