This year’s EDC Las Vegas came and went in the blink of an eye. Once again, the Las Vegas Motor Speedway was transformed into a raver’s wonderland, decorated with more lights than you can imagine, carnival rides, immersive art installations, and over 200 artists performing across 8 stages and multiple art cars. Needless to say, the weekend was over way too soon.
If you’re like me and still reminiscing over some of the most incredible sets you’ve ever seen, then read on to recap some of the best of the weekend. Keep in mind, many artists have not yet released their official sets, but until they do, they’ll live on in our memories.
Many think of Illenium as a feelsy future bass DJ who brings his audience to tears. While this is partially true, he has also been known to THROW DOWN. This year he played a DJ set at Circuit Grounds and he did not hold back with the down and dirty dubstep, all while throwing in a few of his softer crowd favorites. This man is a master of versatility, and that’s what makes his sets so exciting.
Chris Lake is always a good time. This year he played at Cosmic Meadow, which had a cool redesign, making it bigger and brighter than previous years. The space filled up fast for his set, but luckily the Motor Speedway grounds always leave room to dance.
Slander never fail to keep the crowd going wild throughout their entire set and this year’s set at Circuit Grounds was no different. They played some of their crowd favorites, including “Gud Vibrations,” “Love Again,” and “Superhuman,” as well as sampled from some of the heaviest bass music around, ensuring no neck was left unharmed.
Ms. Wonderland blessed the main stage this year and blew us away with nonstop bangers. She sampled from a diverse range of artists, including Ariana Grande, Missy Elliot, Porter Robinson, Deadmau5, and more, resulting in a high energy set from start to finish. Catch her at our own Goldrush Festival this September.
Space mom was a top contender for me this year, and her sets are made for the unique stage design at Circuit Grounds. With her trippy visuals and hypnotizing bass sound, she stole my soul for the weekend.
It’s hard to choose only five sets from this year’s EDC Las Vegas, when there were so many other top contenders. Above and Beyond, Zhu, Tchami X Malaa’s No Redemption, and Skrillex’s surprise set all come in as close seconds.
