Deadmau5, who always wears a mouse head when he performs, is set to headline a summer music dance festival in December.

The Canadian electronic artist, whose real name is Joel Thomas Zimmerman, is set to headline Our:House Summerfest at Mt Smart Stadium on December 2.

The rest of the festival's line-up hasn't been released, but is set to include "world-renowned international electronic artists plus a few of the local favourites".

The event plans to turn the venue into "Auckland's biggest open-air nightclub with numerous stages and multiple zones".
