Day 1

Day one was full bouncing round from Kinetic Field to Circuit Grounds. I at all times like to seek out new artist from listening to their stay 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 in a position to 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 effectively. 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 full 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 quite a bit debate about this set, nevertheless it rocked my world similar to at all times.

Day 2

Sadly, EDC Orlando is just two days lengthy, so you actually need to take advantage of it. Day 2 consisted me actually bouncing round levels to catch everybody I might. Nervo b2b Alok actually pulled by way of and confirmed us what they're made whereas Tiesto helped us ring within the evening along with his sundown slot.

Let's not neglect the notorious fireplace that began throughout Kayzo's set. Luckily, everybody and every part was okay and the subsequent set was in a position to begin proper on time. Alison Wonderland rocked us all by opening her set enjoying her cello – displaying simply how numerous an artist she actually is.

Thankfully, Alison Wonderland and Vini Vici switched set occasions, so I used to be in a position to catch all Illenium's set. He stored his standard calm-but-going-hard vibe all through his set which introduced down the home.

One my favourite elements over the weekend was strolling by way of the Neon Garden and with the ability to actually see all the lights and shows across the pageant. Neon Garden has a extra relaxed, chill vibe in comparison with relaxation the pageant and makes a great escape from all of the craziness. It permits for a great spot to take a break and eat and hydrate – one thing that's at all times inspired at each pageant.

All in all, my first EDC was magical and superb. I believe I'll at all times 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 yr.
