And thanks to EDC it’s happened. Dreams do come true at festivals. I’ve also gotten the chance to talk to Uncle Sam, countless butterflies, a dinosaur and even a polar bear riding a scooter (but that was at 7-11 post Wind Alolocaplyse). From furry boot covers to a full showgirl outfit, EDM fans make much of what they wear and put countless hours into being a part of the experience — unless of course you’re at the Kinetic Field VIP tables. In that case, standard club wear (Jeffrey Campbells and all) seems to be the uniform. Aren’t those uncomfortable for the 30-minute walk from the limo drop off to the main stage anyway?
A Peek at Life Is Beautiful 2017
Gorillaz are coming to Las Vegas for the first time ever. 2016’s Grammy winner for best new artist, Chance the Rapper, will return. English rockers Muse will bring their dizzying live show to the streets of Downtown. And that’s just the top of an eclectic bill that features more than 70 acts, along with comedy, interactive art installations, a group art exhibit featuring the work of Mark Ryden, Tara McPherson and Shepard Fairey and much more. Last year saw more than 137,000 attendees trod the festival footprint. Who’s ready for more?
