EDC Vegas is supposed to be this unimaginable thrill from 8pm-6am of loud music, carnival rides, and lots of people sharing in the love. A few of my friends tried to politely and enthusiastically catch-up with me on EDC Vegas and it only became more and more frustrating that I couldn’t tell them what a perfect weekend it was! As most people who follow EDM know, the 2nd night was cancelled! Take this and add that my friends and I didn’t head out to the Speedway on Friday to catch-up on some much needed sleep instead, and you can imagine how frustrating it was!
…not to mention that we actually did try to go to the show on Saturday, waiting in line for 1.5 hours to get through the first two of three checkpoints after an 1 hour bus ride to get there. Then we were dumb, refused to stay on the bus that smelled like poo (really intensely… smelled of poo) which we waited for an hour to get on, and waited another hour before the 2nd bus departed thinking it’d only be 15 minutes. WHAT A NIGHT!
Anyway, the third night was a good time. Already bitter about the first two nights (which also of course was partially on us), by the time we walked into EDC Vegas we were blown away by the huge set-up! There were stages and lights everywhere with music coming from all different directions. Long after the fireworks (there were two sets on Sunday Night-Monday Morning, eventually the sun came up, the main acts went home, and we were about to collapse.
