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.

  1. These festivals are a scourge to LA. 1756 Naud is ONE BLOCK from a residential neighborhood. These “raves” pound our homes with noise for hours. This weekend, residents have to give up 18 HOURS of their weekend. This music makes it unbearable to be in our homes. Los Angeles is very corrupt, I wouldn’t be surprised if Pasquale Rotella is engaged in bribes again because that’s the only way these types of events get permitted so close to people’s homes. Our complaints are ignored and we are going to take legal action vs. the city. Hundreds of hardworking people get their weekends taken away just so a bunch of tourists can come pay a corporation to dance.. lame.
