EDC Surprises

Three days at a festival will leave most people zoned out. So, it’s fitting Laidback Luke played Zombie Nation’s infamous “Kernkraft 400”  — you know, famous by every sports event ever. Other things that surprised me this weekend:

  • A practical hurricane at the Speedway. 
  • No surprise Tiesto performance.  
  • Avicii getting at least a half an hour set on Sunday thanks to Armin van Buuren. 
  • The giant baby sculpture, “Omma,” not having its video projecting head attached. 
  • The Discovery Stage
  • The scarcity of the pastie. 
  • Hearing a Gotye remix only three times. 
  •  Porter Robinson rocking the main stage at just 19 years old. 
  • The amount of hate overheard after Saturday’s unfortunate weather event. 
  • The energy people still have after three full nights of dancing. 
  • Getting from the Speedway to the Strip in just 25 minutes Monday morning.
