Admission is very reasonable, and hotels are fairly inexpensive.

Has anyone here gone before?

I haven't heard many reviews yet. A coworker attended so I will get the low down from her on Monday. I have heard that there were zero arrests.

DJ Shadow was unreal. No shadowsphere , hejust destroyed with a man that was so locked in I got that feeling where the music just takes over your whole mind/body and you feel euphoric. Everything I wanted from something at edc but never got. I'm a Shadow fan for life now.

This was my second launch.However it has never been this large. This thing is moving in the right direction. The people behind it seem to be very passionate on doing this right and I had a great time. hometown heros !!! into grouplove was fantastic. Then Joy Formidable into Shadow. Throw in some fashion shows + chromeo, a good amount of vendors, decent art stuff, it felt like a micro lolla with the park/city atmosphere.

good job launch ! Had to be daunting throwing this for the first time but the turnout looked strong.
I was glad to see the bands put in passionate performances. Seemed like everyone wanted to be there.

I've seen Bassnectar about 8 times. My favorite performance was in Sac because the crowd was so awesome and everyone was dancing. Kudos to Sac for getting more performers there.

Get cheap room for fifty bucks twenty minute walk to venue . Can get a cheap VIP package for 150 compared to the 250 package they offer on the launch site haha. It's not a fancy hotel like the 250 but it works.

Imagine dragons are well on their way to being headliners at major festivals . Like them or not they are piling up the hits.

Can't stop thinking of that blonde redhead set. It's what radiohead would have been If they kept the bends style . So dark and beautiful guitar music.

I heard from multiple friends that Imagine Dragons were awful.

Blonde Redhead were the best of the day, no doubt. I was also somewhat surprised with how much I liked Washed Out's set, (better than when I saw him/them at OL last year). The Cults and Surfer Blood were also solid. P.O.S. and Doomtree were fun.

I heard from multiple friends that Imagine Dragons were awful.

Friends that already disliked them, or disappointed fans?

I hope GV has the sense to not book them next year.

They had a good crowd response when they did play. I'd say they'll be in killers territory in the next year. It's coming , there's no doubt about it.
