After writing about the Electronic Daisy Carnival last week with never having experienced it, I wanted to do a follow up. EDC took place this past weekend on Friday and Saturday, November 8th and 9th. This became my second EDM (electronic dance music) event that I have attended. However, it appears nothing will be able to top what I had the privilege of experiencing at the Electronic Daisy Carnival over the weekend. It was the most amazing festival I have ever attended, full of good vibes, crazy good music, artfully creative light and laser shows, and wonderful people. Never have I experienced a place where nearly everyone is there for the same reason: to create lasting memories through a once-in-a-lifetime experience via music.
In my last discussion, I mentioned how I was worried that people who were drinking and/or doing drugs would ruin my time, but I couldn’t have been anymore wrong. Yeah, festival attendees were drinking and smoking, but I didn’t have a single issue with it. Obviously having smoke blown in your face isn’t ideal, but it could’ve been much worse.
The festival was said to have around 50,000 attendees. Just hearing that makes it seem entirely crazy, but it somehow made it all the better. EDC featured 3 stages: Neon Gardens (electro/techno music), Circuit Grounds (dubstep/EDM), & my personal favorite, Kinetic Field (dubstep/EDM). Kinetic Field had the most amazing light and laser show I have ever experienced. I was completely awestruck, managing to make my way all the way to the front row, and I’m already counting down the days until I get to experience it all over again. Let the good vibes roll.
