I went to my first Electric Daisy Carnival last year and I had so much fun I made sure I made my way back this year! I just got back from Europe on Wednesday and was so happy that EDC was waiting for me on the weekend. EDC is such a huge party, there’s really nothing else to compare. And this year’s crowd blew last year’s crowd out of the water. You should have seen the crowd that Deadmau5 drew Friday night. The dude is a certified star now. The numbers are in and there were apparently 85,000 concert goers on Friday, and Saturday actually sold out with 100,000 crazy partiers attending EDC, making Saturday the largest attended music festival in America! If you were there, it was pretty obvious.
EDC takes place at the L.A. Coliseum and the grounds surrounding it. The main stage is on the football field of the Coliseum, the home to the USC Trojans (and formerly the LA Raiders). The whole field, as well as the bleachers, were filled with crazy ravers. It is by far the biggest stage I have ever seen. You would think Led Zeppelin or The Beatles were performing. Swedish House Mafia said they had never seen anything like it and I actually believe them. It was breathtaking. In addition to the enormous crowd, was an enormous line-up that also included MSTRKRFT, Moby, Basement Jaxx, Will.I.Am, Duck Sauce, and so on and so on. It was really an unreal event, I can’t even imagine how big it will get next year.
