On November 8-9, Insomniac’s world famous dance music festival Electric Daisy Carnival took over Tinker Field in Orlando, Florida! On the road to EDC 2014 (which, after much speculation, has recently been revealed to take place once again at Motor Speedway in Las Vegas), EDC Orlando gave the star treatment to their “headliners”, or fans, with all the top quality production that could be found at even the largest of the EDC festivals. Despite only having 3 of the typical 6-7 stages, they were the 3 largest of the log: Kinetic Field, Circuit Grounds, and Neon Garden. Being only the third year running of EDC Orlando, over 30,000 fans flew in from across the globe for the two day spectacular, in order to see some of the biggest names in the industry at one of the greatest dance music festivals in the world!
Headlining EDC Orlando were superstars Calvin Harris and Kaskade, with support from other huge artists including Dada Life, Porter Robinson, Dash Berlin, New World Punx (Markus Schulz B2B Ferry Corsten), Martin Solveig, Gareth Emery, Krewella, and many more, between the Kinetic Field and bass heavy Circuit Grounds! Techno heads were treated to something special as well at the Neon Garden, where Richie Hawtin’s ENTER. experience took over on Friday once again (as it did at EDC Vegas and EDC NYC respectively), with support from Gaiser, Paco Osuna, and Cassy, and Saturday saw Hot Creations’ Jamie Jones, Art Department, Damian Lazarus, and more. Techno legends UMEK and John Digweed both had main stage gigs at the Kinetic Field as well.
Carnival rides, a huge variety of costumed performers and entertainers that floated through the venue and on the main stage, and interactive attractions such as The Pool, a dance floor of 100 light up circular platforms, as well as the new Kandi Shop, a 6 story high LED tower where fans could create their own special Kandi bracelets as a keepsake from EDC, all came together to provide one of the most magical experiences electronic music fans could have to date!
