What was your first electronic music event?

EDC Las Vegas 2017

What/who influenced you to attend your first event?

I went to Coachella in 2017. I really enjoyed the stages production there and had so much fun at some of the electronic music sets, so I knew I had to attend EDC Las Vegas.

I asked one of my friends if she wanted to go and she was down. She always wanted to go, but she didn’t have any friends that were into the electronic music scene. I didn’t either. Fortunately, after attending several events and meeting people online, I’ve made more friends who to go to these events.

What is one moment from an event that was special and why?
It’s so hard to say because I had such a blast the entire time at my first EDCLV and I’ve had quite a few special moments since then.
One special moment was when I sat on the bleachers for the first time and one of my favorite songs, “Get Free” by Major Lazer, was playing. There’s nothing like that view, especially seeing it for the first time, and I always get excited when my favorite songs come on.
What is your favorite festival or event?

So far my favorite event is EDC Las Vegas and I’m sure it will always have a special place in my heart.

What is your favorite electronic song and why?

“Thief” by Ookay. It’s such a beautiful song and it touches me every time I listen to it.

What do you feel your “Identity” is in the electronic music community?

Honestly, I haven’t really figured it out yet. I’m still discovering what I like most about the scene.

I’m just so thankful I found this community because I love electronic music and the way it brings people together from all over the world. I’ve met so many cool people from different cultures and backgrounds.
