    Almost 400 noise complaints from people living in the area complaining of the noise, windows and floors rattling. Calling it the loudest event they've ever heard at the coliseum, ever.

    Fucking babies. You live by an airport and you want to complain about noise. Cry more.

    Really hope they come back next year and this wasn't a one time thing with Insomniac, me and my friends had a great time enjoying the typical Insomniac production.

Meaning we won't have to deal with the morning commute traffic like EDC. Outside of parking in the worst spot possible of the actual parking lot, I'm sure leaving will be a breeze.
    I totally know what you mean. It's like, "why do they have the festival end at the same time as the Saturday morning rush hour?" The Saturday morning traffic on the 15 South into Vegas has to be the worst stretch of highway in North America. If only they could figure out a solution to this, the festival would be soooo much better.

    Orbital was so good. Enjoyed Mord Fustang a lot. Overall it was a lot of fun, they had some serious issues with actually having decent signage so people could know that Will Call was inside and with the water refill station not being able to handle everyone. Would attend again.

    I fucking hate events that go past 2am. I want to drive home with all the drunk drivers and cops when leaving a rave.

    I don't live by an airport, and it was shaking out house 6 miles south with the speakers pointed west. There were actually about 10x more complaints than the 400 you quoted. Promoter screwed himself by acting like a shithead when the news interviewed him. Have fun with your future 11:59 curfew.

    You just earned yourself a complaint phone call.

    Dirty South > AVICII > Alesso seemed to be in the sweet spot for the worst of it. Inflicting that on the public is unforgivable.

    Avicii surprisingly played some electro and a lot of songs he doesn't usually play in his "live" shows. I was only there for 30 mins of his set but other people were saying it stayed like that throughout it.

    Eh, I had fun, but it wasn't the greatest. It felt completely fucking empty until 9:30-10, and even when it was totally full you could tell they had built the tents expecting more people to show up. It was cold and I stupidly left my sweater in the car, which limited my ability to watch full sets on the better but depressingly small stage. It was kind of bs they didn't make that one a tent.

    The first stage with Alesso was way too quiet and I couldn't hear shit from the back (I think because it was next to the smaller stage), and then the other stage was so fucking loud that my ears were still ringing last night, which has never happened to me. Most importantly though the sound quality was shit which really pissed me off.

    Decorations were cool but not "experience" worthy. The same shit we've seen at every other event but on a smaller scale, and weird acid-looking things on the ceiling doesn't really add anything to an event. Lazers were fucking awesome though. And Avicii surprised me by actually putting together a pretty diverse set and throwing some different sounds in there.
