I'm going to keep this short and sweet. With the kickoff of the 2012 edition of Electric Daisy Carnival in Las Vegas coming up tonight, the only thing on my mind is making sure I wake up in time to make my 7 AM flight out
of LaGuardia en route to Sin City. The EDMLounge team is waiting for me and I certainly cannot wait to meet up with them!
Now, we've heard it all. "This is the year of EDM." "EDM is bigger than ever." "Jay-Z wants to cash in on the EDM craze." In all honestly, it's all very true. Hell, your mother probably listens to EDM. But how significant is a festival like EDC Las Vegas? With around 350,000 tickets sold over 3 days in the largest party city in the world, this festival is certainly going to satisfy each and every beautiful person in attendance. And if you're like me, you're going to plan out each day to ensure you absolute will not miss your favorite DJs.
Here's where you'll find me Saturday night at the Speedway:
8:20 - 8:50 PM Sander van Doorn
9:45 - 11 PM Jochen Miller
11:00 - 11:45 PM Rank 1
11:45 - 1:00 AM Markus Schulz
8:50 - 9:50 PM Nicky Romero
2:30 - 4:00 AM Tiësto
4:00 - 5:30 AM Steve Aoki with Blue Man Group <----- GOING TO BE CRAZY!!!
circuitGROUNDS (ASOT Stage)
1:00 - 3:00am Armin van Buuren
4:15 - 5:30am W&W
I really love Saturday because, coming off Friday's insane house, progressive, and electro acts (Kaskade, Angello, Ingrosso, Hardwell, Morillo, SJ&RM, AN21, etc) this day is set for a super beautiful and euphoric ASOT. My heart is beating and my skin is tingling just thinking about it. Drink LOTS of water, take your vitamins and try, yes, please just try, to eat something during the weekend because we all know no one is getting any rest.
Here's the full Saturday lineup
