The Missed Connections Of Electric Daisy Carnival
For those on the European continent who may not be aware, Electric Daisy Carnival is the largest electronic music festival in the US.
With a history that dates back to 1997 and spinoffs from Brazil to the UK, Electric Daisy Carnival (EDC) is nothing short of an international dance music monster. The flagship festival currently goes down in Las Vegas, Nevada (after having to move from its Southern California birthplace due to narcotics incidents) over 3 days in June. During its annual tenure, EDC turns Sin City awash with brightly coloured ravers, kandi kids, and spirit animals (yes, there’s a smattering of underground music as well…this year featured names like: Art Department, Breach, Dubfire, Eats Everything, Eelke Kleijn, Loco Dice, Pan-Pot, Soul Clap, and more). With all those hormones things are bound to get a little…desperate.
Fortunately, there is the online database for all things creepy that is Craigslist. With a quick glance through its Missed Connections and Casual Encounters sections, the picture of the contemporary US raver-in-heat comes through. We’ve highlighted a handful of our favourites below (picture witheld). For even more EDC related love connections, find them here and here.
