The dubstep DJ was able to laugh the incident off as he celebrated his 25th birthday.
Skrillex set his hair on fire while blowing out the candles on his birthday cake.
The dubstep producer, who turned 25 on 15th January, was fortunately unharmed and laughed off the incident, which took place earlier this week.
He had been in the middle of a DJ set when his friends surprised him with the cake in the booth.
On his first attempt to blow out the candles, the tips of the DJ's long black hair ignited, but he was quickly able to put out the flames.
Skrillex – real name Sonny John Moore – then held his hair back when he made his second - and more successful - attempt to blow out the candles.
You can watch a video of the incident below:
Skrillex is due to play a gig in Canada later this month before hitting the road again in March.
