Where have all the neon, polyester flowers gone?
Or rather, were there any faux-flowers left in the Greater New York City area as thousands of gardlanded, flowered-out electronic music festival goers descended upon New Jersey’s MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J. for Electric Daisy Carnival New York.
I took a trip with the Italians and it was such an adventure, Charlie!
Saturday held 31 sets, across four stages, running continuously for 11-hours and the other two days were no different.
From Calvin Harris to Avicii to Alesso with some Afrojack in between, EDCNY was a psychedelic cocktail of House bliss under a skyline hovering over approximately 45,000 daisy-folk clad in neon tutus, faux-fur Snookie-esque legging-boots and hair colours not known to nature.
On that note, I do consider myself rather friendly.
And then there were these people…
… it was kind of like meeting real-life Japanese cartoon characters.
Larger-than-life LED video displays turned deejays into tiny baseball cap-clad elves on a stage and the scent of beer riddled in the air.
Though with no David Guetta in sight (*cough*cough*Vegas!*), his songs certainly made an appearance, like “Sunshine” in Avicii’s set.
Nothing was short on experience (except perhaps the ridiculous line I had to wait in for nachos,) as Electric Daisy was an artificial paradise inhabited by warm-blooded creatures gyrating to booming beats.
But! Alas, don’t forget to bring your own soap leaves from Crabtree & Evelyn, tote the Vera with hand sanitizer as a staple consumer commodity and a light sweater inside, wrap on your bikini, toss on your sneakers, stay H2O-hydrated and wear sunscreen, kiddos.
So glad I did
Backstage at Avicii…
… with the daisy people.
… and the mirror man.
Did you have any doubts?
Oh, EDC! Thanks for the memories
