The first night of EDC Las Vegas 2019 was filled with some monumental sets, epic moments, and plenty of exploring!


Over the past week, Headliners from all over the world descended upon the city of Las Vegas for one of the biggest parties on the planet: Electric Daisy Carnival. Last night was the culmination of months of preparation and you could truly feel the (kinetic) energy in the air as EDC Las Vegas got underway.

Attendees who were staying at Camp EDC were lucky as those who were driving or shuttling did experience some delays in getting to the venue. We started our EDC Las Vegas experience off with Bill Nye the Science Guy who took some time to teach everyone at the Opening Ceremony about climate change, space and also reminded us that we are one race of humans who all share this planet.

From there, we were off to the races and headed over to the circuitGROUNDS to catch i_o open the festival with some epic originals and remixes. House and techno dominated our schedule for Friday as we also caught performances by ZHU as Blacklizt, Eric Prydz, deadmau5, and a solid b2b between Mason Maynard and Eli Brown among plenty others. Of course, we couldn’t pass up a once-in-a-lifetime b2b featuring dubstep legends Skream and Rusko.

Other highlights included exploring Downtown EDC which was full of hidden surprises, checking out the new art installations that have been added this year, and dancing to some art car sets. Oh, and that first-night fireworks display was also absolutely stunning so we hope you caught it!

There is plenty more in store to explore over the next two days, so stay tuned for the latest updates on all things EDCLV!

Sydney attributes her love for music from her mom, who insisted on playing The Foo Fighters and The White Stripes rather than Kiss FM whenever she drove carpool and agreed to allow Sydney to attend Coachella in the eighth grade as long as she could go with her. That first festival only greater affirmed Sydney’s passion for the scene, but it was not until 2013 when she attended Swedish House Mafia’s One Last Tour concert in Los Angeles that she discovered electronic music. She was hooked instantly and has since attended a total of 23 festivals, with countless concerts in between. Sydney’s favorite artists include RL Grime, Jauz, Jai Wolf, Louis The Child, Slander, Bearson and Big Gigantic but she is constantly on the look out for new music and artists to dance to. When she’s not scouring the internet for new tracks or grooving at a concert, Sydney studies Journalism and Biology full-time at the University of Oregon.
