Rather a lot went down over the weekend – Alison Wonderland remixed God is a Woman proper after the primary stage caught on fireplace. Dillon Francis teased a collab with AW and Illenium debuted a brand new Halsey remix. If you have been there, it was a whirlwind of exercise and new music.

EDC Orlando is particular as a result of it’s a smaller model of the epic occasion that goes down in Las Vegas yearly. It has carnival rides, loads of distributors, meals and naturally a wide range of music to select from. The ambiance is one thing completely magical below all the lights and decorations round Tinker Field. Insomniac actually does not maintain again relating to levels and creating an ambiance.

Day 1

Day one was stuffed with bouncing round from Kinetic Field to Circuit Grounds. I all the time like to seek out new artist from listening to their reside units, so I discovered myself at Circuit Grounds for a really very long time catching units from Boogie T b2b Squnto, Midnight T, Moody Good and extra. From there I went to Kinetic Field and was capable of expertise Dillion Francis for the primary time and witness the epic collab reveal with Alison Wonderland.

I had the chance to expertise the EDC VIP expertise as properly. At Kinetic Field and Circuit Grounds, they’ve their very own standing space proper subsequent to the stage in addition to viewing decks which lets you look over the entire crowd. The VIP grounds have been stuffed with kandi making stations, air-conditioned loos and extra.

Of course, there was no higher solution to finish out day 1 than catching Bassnectar at Circuit Grounds. There has been numerous debate about this set, however it rocked my world identical to all the time.

Day 2

Sadly, EDC Orlando is simply two days lengthy, so you actually should benefit from it. Day 2 consisted of me actually bouncing round levels to catch everybody I may. Nervo b2b Alok actually pulled via and confirmed us what they’re made from whereas Tiesto helped us ring within the night time together with his sundown slot.

Let’s not overlook the notorious fireplace that began throughout Kayzo’s set. Luckily, everybody and the whole lot was okay and the subsequent set was capable of begin proper on time. Alison Wonderland rocked us all by opening her set enjoying her cello – exhibiting simply how numerous of an artist she actually is.

Thankfully, Alison Wonderland and Vini Vici switched set occasions, so I used to be capable of catch all of Illenium’s set. He saved his regular calm-but-going-hard vibe all through his set which introduced down the home.

One of my favourite components over the weekend was strolling via the Neon Garden and having the ability to actually see all the lights and shows across the pageant. Neon Garden has a extra relaxed, chill vibe in comparison with remainder of the pageant and makes escape from all of the craziness. It permits for a great place to take a break and eat and hydrate – one thing that’s all the time inspired at each pageant.

All in all, my first EDC was magical and superb. I believe I’ll all the time be shocked by how good and giving everyone seems to be at festivals. There actually is not anything prefer it. I am unable to wait to return to the Electric Sky subsequent 12 months.
