EDC Day 2, OMG!

What another awesome day at EDC! W started the day a little late, didn’t get past the gate till about ten but still managed to see a ton of headliners and have some fun.

On a tiny journalist news reporting note, there was a small isolated fire last night that involved a golf cart, which was probably caused by a short circuit. Firefighters responded to the scene quickly and were able to extinguish the flame before anyone could get hurt and too damper the mood of the revelers.

I did make a small time lapse that didn’t turn out to well due to the lighting condition. However if you’d like to view the time-lapse video, you can view it here.

When we got back to our hotel we checked out the Bamboo Pool here at the Cosmopolitan where we played around with the GoPro to get some cool and neat shots. Now I’m off to get some rest; it’s about noon and hasn’t slept since we got back.

EDC 2012

WHAT AN EXPERIENCE!

This was my first time ever attending an event of this magnitude! Great music, fireworks, lights, fire, lasers, friends, and wind, I loved it!

If you do not know what the Electric Daisy Carnival is, click here to see a trailer to the event.

Yes, I am STILL bummed out on  missing Steve Aoki performing with Blue Man Group, Tiesto, and Avicii (Avicii did perform on Sunday) but glad that Insomniac did the right thing by cancelling the event.

For those of you going through EDC withdrawals, here’s the set list from EDC: http://www.electricnation.net/edclv/

I’ll let my Instagram pics do the rest of the talking 🙂

Sadly that above was my last EDC pic of the whole 3 day event. I ended up selling my Sunday ticket to a buddy that drove down but didn’t have a ticket. We should had found one on CL so that we all could had enjoyed the experience together. My only regret for the weekend. I’ll post more pics and some videos up from my camera when I get a chance later this week… Or weekend since it’s Design Week here in the City. Until then, dance the night away 🙂

I Love This City!

I saw this advert on a MUNI street car while waiting for the 22 on Church and Market for I Love This City (ILTC) and I got excited all about it that I had to take the above picture with my HTC EVO. I have liked electronic dance music (EDM) for several years but only started going out of my way to see certain dj’s perform at places like Ruby Skye and Vessel because of my girlfriend, @VVH1T, which is a great positive thing that we both enjoy.

This past Monday ILTC released their Phase 2 line up which is sick! If you haven’t seen it, here it is for Friday and Saturday. I look forward to seeing folks such as Madeon, Tiesto, The Crystal Method, Steve Aoki, David Guetta, and many more! Madeon, wow! That kid is sick and one of THE people who I really want to see at ILTC. The sucky part about ILTC is that I already know that I wont be getting the days off since it Memorial Day weekend so I plan on going both days after work and trying to see as many folks that I can.

However if worst comes to worst, ILTC one day pass goes on sale today May 4th at 10AM PST. ILTC is a great event and even better warm up event to the upcoming Electric Daisy Carnival this June!

Back to the subject. ILTC! I’m super stoked for this event, the crowds, the energy, and the fun that I’ll be having with my friends and @VVH1T. Follow @ILTCFestival for more info.

For those of you going, I’ll see you all there!!
