June 10: EDC 2012 Day 3

Delta Heavy had me jumpin' a few times when I was walking by.

EDC 2012, Take 2.

Determined to make it a better night, we went in hard. The lineup itself wasn't as good as Fridays or Saturdays, but you gotta make due with what you got. Unfortunately, I can't say that I LOVED any of the DJs. DirtyPhonics was probably my favorite of the night followed by Ferry Corsten and Bingo Players. One thing I did make sure of was that I took a lot more pictures. And I also ventured off on my own occasionally to explore the grounds myself. I should do that more often... On to the pictures!

Car shot!

Default with the Besties!


Sib shot!

Q-Dance Stage was crazy.

But it wasn't as cool as the ones in the trailers.

My twin.

The Spire of Fire is alive!

Blue Light Saber


Damn it Maddie...

The Final Verdict
Being there was awesome. But all the trouble of driving out to Vegas, driving out to the festival grounds, driving back to the hotel, and then driving back to SoCal, it didn't seem completely worth it. Even if we flew out to Vegas, we would either have to deal with driving a rental to and from the grounds, or dealing with some shady shuttle service.

Having said that, if someone else wants to plan an EDC trip for me next year, I'll consider it!

June 09: EDC 2012 Day 2

Man what a terrible day. Everything that could have gone right, didn't. I couldn't get Yeezy 2s online. It took over 2 hours to get to EDC from the strip. As soon as we get into EDC, we get the news that Pacquiao lost in a bullshit split decision.

Then things start to look up. We start to meet up with some other groups. We got a good feel of the grounds. Calvin Harris was KILLING IT! And we were about to see Avicii and Tiesto next. But then the winds pick up, and they end EDC around 12:30am. We wait around until 2am hoping that the DJs will come back on. Then we hop in the car to leave, but we're stuck in the parking lot for over 4 hours. FUCK.

Oh well. It was still quite the... experience I guess.. -__-

Gate A (because Gate S was closed right before we got in...)

We're in!

Martin Solveig!

Eh. He was alright. Better at Coachella for suresies.


Meeting by the Spire of Fire!

Which was off because of the high winds...

Get down bro.


Rallying back at the Spire while things got shut down.

Yeah it was pretty windy...

And now its over...

Sorry. No pictures of the 4.5-hour car ride back.
