EDC withdrawals are in full force this week and so is my insomnia. Before returning to EDC after a two-year hiatus I really didn’t expect much to have changed, but as each night passed I fell further and further in love with the festival I took a break from. There are highs and lows of every festival, but the atmosphere of EDC has never lost its magic. The weekend took us all on a musical adventure with friends old and new. If you missed it here are some memorable highlights of the weekend!
Everyone agrees, EDC traffic is the most dreaded part of the festival. And getting over 400,000 people to one venue is no easy task for any festival, however, Insomniac is now taking steps to alleviate the festival traffic! Today, Insomniac announced a brand new feature for EDC Las Vegas attendees to travel to and from the festival at no cost, with ease!
The summer solstice is almost upon us! Colorado ravers, that means it’s time to gear up for 4 days of camping and music at Sonic Bloom! The 12th annual Sonic Bloom Festival will be held June 12-18 at the Hummingbird Ranch in Spanish Peaks Country.
Today, Insomniac revealed the most anticipated lineup of the 2017 festival season, featuring over 230 of the world’s leading dance music artists set to perform at the monumental 21st edition of Electric Daisy Carnival (EDC) in Las Vegas. From Friday, June 16 to Sunday, June 18, unforgettable sets will be heard from dusk till dawn across eight immersive stages and a parade of roaming art cars spread throughout Las Vegas Motor Speedway.
Embarking on its 18th year, Canada’s longest-running bass and psytrance music and arts festival, Motion Notion lifts the veil of transcendence this August 24th-28th. The event awakens the life force of the breathtaking forest surrounding historic Beaverfoot Lodge nestled in the mountains of Golden BC. Unveiling a pulsating lineup that perfectly aligns with the festival’s storied reputation for assembling some of the biggest names in electronic music alongside beloved emerging artists, Motion Notion prepares attendees for an auditory adventure of fantastical proportions.
Channeling the heartbeat of the Rocky Mountains is dubstep legend and Firepower label boss Datsik alongside psytrance powerhouse Avalon who will be on hand with plenty of otherworldly vibes. Straight out of Bristol and joining the ranks of 2017 headliners is OWSLA’s Koan Sound and fellow labelmates The M Machine, whose signature sound of melodic and upbeat underground house is sure to win the crowd’s hearts. Rounding out the bill’s top acts is Dim Mak’s own Dirtyphonics, who will deliver slamming drum & bass beats and the heaviest of basslines to the spellbinding grounds. Constructing an insanely eclectic sonic landscape to entice a vast community, Motion Notion shifts to embrace a more diverse musical lineup that features over 100 regional and international acts.
