Raving At My First Electric Daisy Carnival


electric-daisy-carnival-first

Few more weeks before another electric daisy carnival and I’m so excited. The songs from the carnival re-echo in my head. I have seen the lineup for 2017 and I am really thrilled, the lineup is so lit. First off I should say I am a follower of good music, I listen to a wide range of songs across different genres, I have attended rap, pop, rock, jazz and rap musical concerts but I had not been to the electric daisy carnival. My first electric daisy carnival experience was in 2016, I will share my experience shortly.

What Is The Electric Daisy Carnival About

The Electric Daisy Carnival, popularly referred to as EDC, is among the largest electronic dance music carnivals on the planet. Started in the early 1990’s, the carnival has grown in popularity and size, with attendance increasing every consecutive year. The mother of all EDC’s is organized in Las Vegas, all big electronic producers and DJ’s stage performances at all the venues across the US.

I first heard about the Electric Daisy Carnival when I was visiting my grandma at her home. She told me about her time in the 60’s attending massive concerts. I told her my favorite type of music was Electronic music and that’s when someone who was taking care of my grandma on behalf of http://activecareseniorcare.com told me about the Electric Daisy Carnival. I heard everything I had hoped from an electronic music festival and more. Here’s my story.

 

My First Electric Daisy Carnival Experience

MY first EDC experience was in 2016 held at Speedway, Vegas; it’s a three-day event running from sun-up to sun-down every day. It was quite hot at Vegas even in the evenings, with different stages offering varying kind of EDM song; there were five massive stages and a bunch of other little ones that could accommodate fifty people thereabout. Each stage had a different feel and look which was quite cool, I came in company of my friends as a newbie, and the stages had lots of stunning lights with attractive moving colours all around them. One of my highlights of the carnival is the firecracker show that lasted for about ten minutes, the sound engineers did an awesome job with the sound that sound from surrounding stages didn’t affect your experience.Read More »

The Best Part About Electronic Music Festivals!


electronic-music-festivals-best-part

Electronic music festivals are, in my opinion, the best type of festival you could ever spend your time at. There are so many things to love, from the atmosphere to the drinks, and especially the people! It would actually be hard for me to say what I think the best thing is, but I could definitely give you a list of the things I like best.

In the summer of 2016, I decided to go to my first electronic music festival. It was amazing! Electronic Dance Music boasts some of the best beats on this planet, and I loved every tune that came on. It’s pretty obvious that if you’re at an electronic music festival you probably love electronic music, but believe me when I say it’s just a different vibe altogether compared to anything you will have experienced. I know I felt that way. It made me chuckle thinking about the DJ at my usual club frantically trying to find the next house song that we’d feel forced to dance to. Electronic music festivals are so different, with all the different genres and songs they go through, there’s bound to be something for everyone.

Everyone In a Good Mood at Electronic Music Festivals So Make Friends!


good-mood-friends-electronic-music-festivals

I’ve been to a few electronic music festivals, and at every one of them, I’ve made heaps of friends, most of which I still talk to now. I love that; how the music can bring us closer together. It doesn’t even matter what genre you’re into, or which headline act you’ve come to see when you’re together, you’re together. If you’ve ever been to an electronic music festival you’ll know what I mean, and if you haven’t, I’ll try to explain it a little more in detail.

The electronic music covers a wide range of genres, from European Dance Music (my fave!) to Techno (tied favourite actually) to House (they’re all my favourites, damn!). With the genres come the people, and electronic music attracts people from all walks of life. This is a big thing that makes the festivals so great, everyone is so open, and they’ve all come to enjoy the music. The fact that electronic music is so prone to making everyone bust out their dance moves does help, and you’ll soon loosen up once the beat drops, if you haven’t already.

We Are FSTVL Might Have Been the Most Fun Show I Went To


electric music festival

I’ve been to many festivals in my time, heck I’ve been to three this year already, but the We Are FSTVL is on a different level altogether. Not only does it have amazing music, but it puts a lot of focus on having a good time, and you can downright take as much advantage as you’d like to ensure you have a memorable weekend.

The first thing that I fell in love with at We Are was the fact that it’s not only a massive festival, but it’s got a massive campsite to accompany it. Now one thing that struck me as awesome is how the place calls itself the ‘Airfield of Dreams’.  I can never forget that. It really is a place of dreams. A festival site with hot tubs? Honestly, that’s enough to persuade me to go to anything, never mind any of the other cool things it has compared to any other fest.

Electronic Music Festivals in the United Kingdom


Electronic music has always been my safe haven. I remember fondly the days when I was younger and my mother used to sneak me in. From the age of 14, I’ve always been to at least one Electronic music festival a year. As a 24 year old now, it continues to be one of the aspects of who I am.

When I was 14, my Mom thought I looked old enough to be able to get into Bang Face. If you are familiar with this event that’s been around since the Early 2000’s, you might know how abstract this event truly is. The people in attendance or usually slightly off the mainstream path, or at least they are when they are at the event. So many people are dressed up in colorful attire, with bracelets, colored hair, flashing lights on their body, and are ready to party. When I had arrived with Mom, I knew this would be an experience like I’ve never had before.
