EDC 2011 – Friday

Ok here we go, this will be my biggest post to date as I have uploaded two and a half gigs of EDM goodness in live-set format, all mixed together by your favorite DJs. The Electric Daisy Carnival has grown into the biggest party in North America, and this year’s Las Vegas celebration brought in more than 200,000 attendees over the three-day event last month. That’s pretty amazing by any of today’s concert standards, and Insomniac Events has outdone itself again through the detailed planning and execution of this monstrous party. Make sure you check out the links to the pictures and videos from the event because the production was pretty bad ass. Six stages featuring hundreds of performers and an unlimited supply of great DJ’s will always result in a good time. Unfortunately not everyone’s set was recorded, but I am sharing as many as I can get my hands on.  The music is split up into their respective days, so there is a separate post for Friday, Saturday, and Sunday’s shows. Big, BIG thanks to Razorator who ripped these sets from Sirius XM’s Electric Area channel. As always these tracklists are in constant need of updating, so any help with them would be much appreciated. Download links can be found at the bottom of each post.

Nocturnal Festival 2010

Last weekend I attended the annual Nocturnal Festival thrown by Insomniac Events. This year’s party was thrown at the NOS Events Center in San Bernardino, California and generally speaking, I was very impressed with the level of production. Everything was planned out very well and the night progressed smoothly with little to no complaints. One thing that I really liked was the setup of the stages. Insomniac did a great job utilizing the three massive tent-stages and two separate side-rooms to incorporate the 100+ artists/performers who  kept the party jumpin. The good thing about NOS is that it’s pretty roomy, so it never felt overcrowded, too hot, or suffocating like some other SoCal events. There was plenty of room to dance which was a nice attribute. The musical variety was very welcoming as my friends and I jumped from stage to stage, trying to catch a little bit of everyone’s performance. Alice’s Room was definitely the place to be due to its larger-than-life setup,  stunning visual effects, and the capacity of the crowd. I’d have to say my favorite set of the night was either Simon Patterson’s or Markus Schulz’s, but that’s probably due to my partiality towards trance. Simon played a handful of his own productions and kept the energy pretty high. Markus did a good job too and played a lot of tunes from his usual repertoire. I’m not sure if any of the sets from the night were recorded, but I will post some up if I can get my hands on a few of them. Overall I had a wonderful experience with an excellent group of friends, and I am very happy that Insomniac stepped up their game. Here are some videos from throughout the night, taken at different stages(remember to play in HD for better quality):

EDC 2010

It’s about that time of the year again, when the daisies have bloomed and the freaks come out at night… the annual Electric Daisy Carnival has arrived, and it has come full force. Spanning 2 days, this diversified music festival lasting 24 hours will unite over 140,000 people as they dance to a wide selection of electronic music. From drum n bass to dubstep to trance, attendees will be immersed in great tunes throughout the event as they jump to the different stages with various types of music. Of course there are also carnival rides, concession stands, and various forms of visual art to explore as well. Known as the biggest music festival outside of Europe, EDC is an experience that you can’t find anywhere else in this country, and it is for this reason I encourage you to check it out. If you aren’t a fan of electronic music or you are a borderline convert, I believe this event will change your mind. There’s just so much to see and so much good music to soak in that it will be hard not to have a great time.

On the downside, it is due to the growing popularity of this Insomniac party that the event does get a little too hectic at times. During peak hours at the big stages, there always seems to be a giant clusterfuck of patrons crammed onto the dancefloor, in the hallways, and all across the bleachers. At last year’s event, I was overwhelmed by the amount of pushing, congestion, and overall crowdedness to the point where it was hard to truly enjoy the music. It became annoying to move around and deal with all the kids laying on the ground, and I don’t figure it will get better this year. Insomniac claims to improve visitor mobility every year, but it’s hard to see the results.

Complaints aside, this year’s lineup is pretty damn solid (in terms of trance at least). Aly & Fila and Gareth Emery are high on my list of must-sees, and Above & Beyond and Armin always play a lot of crowd-pleasers. In my opinion, Neon Garden will be the place to be because it has the sweetest lineup. If I do end up going (plans have not been cemented yet), the big question would be… Armin or Simon Patterson for the closing set?

EDC 2009 Preview

The annual Electric Daisy Carnival is fast approaching, and I can’t say I’m not excited about the lineup this year. Compared to the last two years’, this year’s is pretty stacked. Also, I’m glad the event is at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum instead of being hosted by the crappy NOS Event Center in San Bernardino. The biggest thing I have to complain about is the overcrowding. Last year’s event boasted a headcount of over 75,000 people, making it the biggest dance event in North America. This makes me wonder how many people are going to be stuffed into this year’s two-day event. At least they expanded the venue to accomodate more people (check out the map below). Another thing that bothers me are the set-times for the DJs. I’m not attending Friday’s event, but the lineup for Kinetic Field looks horrible. Why would anybody want Paul Choke-n-fold to close instead of Aly & Fila or Eddie Halliwell??  Oakenfold is notorious for being coked up all the time and trainwrecking all night long. I remember back in 2007 at EDC he wrecked so bad I had to leave the stage.  I guess kids are too fucked up to notice anyway, so they keep bringing him back. Conversely, I have also heard that he has been getting better and has cleaned up his life a little bit, but that still doesn’t warrant Insomniac’s decision to place him as a closer. Aly & Fila should DEFINITELY be closing instead of spinning at 4 in the afternoon! Saturday’s lineup is not as bad, but I will be missing many of the DJ’s I have been looking forward to (Cosmic Gate, Yoji, and Sander van Doorn) due to another engagement. On the plus side, at least I won’t miss Markus Schulz and I will get a solid 4 hours from Sander tomorrow night down here in San Diego. Anyway, even though my expectations have now been dropped due to the lack of DJ interest, I guess it should still be a good party since a lot of my friends will be in attendance.  I wish everyone who’s going a safe and fun night! =)

p.s. I will bet anybody a thousand dollars PvD will spin For An Angel (2009 remix)
