Downtown Los Angeles looked like a circus freak fest this past weekend as thousands decked out in candy, neon-colored attire and extravagant makeup crowded the streets, making their way to the two-day party known as the Electronic Daisy Carnival (EDC). Over 185,000 people packed into the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum and Exposition Park this year, according to an event rep, making it the country’s largest attended music festival per day. The bash boasted over 150 of the world’s most popular deejays, including Deadmau5, Kaskade, Benny Benassi, and Armin van Buuren. Even hip-hop moguls graced the electronica world, as will.i.am mixed on the main stage on Saturday night and Lil Jon hosted both nights from several stages. With inventive art installations, free carnival rides, state-of-the-art sound and lighting, and imaginative characters, dancers, and individuals roaming the grounds, EDC was an indisputable must-see, one-of-a-kind experience.
