Though this year will be our first, the organizers tell us that the ethereal side of electronic music is alive and well in this utopia, re-envisioned last year with a completely new, open-air stage design and programming that flexes all areas of the genre.
One of the main stages, known as Kinetic Field or kineticFIELD has manifested as a cathedral for sonic worship; a crystal village inhabited by owl guardians; a temple of sacred sounds; the open arms of mother Gaia; and the epicenter of universal love. Always in motion yet true to its eternal nature, kineticFIELD now reveals its most natural state.
EDC attendees are known for their creative attire and culture of “Kandhi.” A form of gift giving items that are hand made prior to the event. You will also see Funkdafied Freaks—the dancers, stilters, aerialists, circus performers, and other whimsical characters at EDC. Decked out in over-the-top costumes crafted specially for the event the atmosphere is enchanting.
