Cheer and Trancing in Las Vegas: Electronic Daisy Carnival 2011
If you were in Las Vegas this past weekend, you undoubtedly heard the news (if you didn’t hear the noise) of the annual Electronic Daisy Festival; one of today’s most prominent displays of electronic, trance and house music.
This year marked the inaugural appearance of the festival in the sinful streets of Las Vegas, with other stops this year in Dallas, Orlando, Denver and even Puerto Rico.
This year’s festivities, which took place June 24-26th, featured hundreds of acts that catered to the ears of over 200,000 fans. With heavyweights Bassnectar, Major Lazer and DJ Tiesto in tow, performers large and small brought “an energy among the people there that for me was unmatched by any crowed I’ve partied with before,” according to one blogging attendee.
But now that the lights have dimmed, don’t think you can’t relive the action. (After all, that’s why they invented the intranet.)
You literary types can check-in at the EDC blog for a more in-depth look at what truly went down on the sacred grounds of this dance haven.
Here’s a glimpse at one of our favorite moments from the weekend, featuring David Guetta orchestrating an epic fireworks show with some heart-tweaking beats.
