Meet EDM Identity Team Member Tim Goth in this week’s #IDSpotlight!
What was your first electronic music event?
My first electronic music event was also my first concert: deadmau5 @ Soldier Field, Chicago on July 2, 2010.
What/who influenced you to attend your first event?
Fellow EDM ID Editor Erin Cropper and her husband Ben.
What is one moment from an event that was special and why?
TomorrowWorld 2015 aka Mudfest. The venue was a complete and total mess but everyone made the most of it and saw some amazing music.
What is your favorite festival or event?
What is your favorite electronic song and why?
“Strobe” by deadmau5. The song is the quintessential deadmau5 track and it causes me to feel like I’m right back there at my first show experiencing it again for the first time. “Strobe” always has a way of calming my nerves and re-centering my being.
