June 21, EDC Las Vegas Day 1

It's been a while since Madi and I have been on the road. It's only been since Summer Camp actually, but that was three weeks ago, which is a pretty long time for us.

Yesterday we arrived in the infamous Las Vegas to take on EDC. Our stupid shenanigans started right back up again and it was quite a crazy road trip. To mention a few obstacles that we ran into on the drive here; First, there was a fully inflated tire in the middle of the road and yes, we ran right over it and almost died! Maybe saying we almost died is a tad bit exaggerated, but we sure did almost swerve off the road. Next, we drove away from the gas pump without taking the pump out of the car and ripped the pump from the station as we drove away. Not only did we rip the pump off but I also spilled gasoline all down my arm while attempting to put it back! Just had a few "bumps in the road" and they all happened in Utah… how peculiar.

We drove straight through the night and got to Vegas in the early hours of the morning; too early to even check into our room so we had to drag our tired selves around Vegas to kill some time. We have successfully switched our sleep cycles from semi-normal to nocturnal. EDC vegas starts at 7pm and ends at 5am, so we've had to sleep during the day and festival during the night.


EDC day 1, where do I even start? It's one of the most incredible things I have ever seen. Production wise, it is exceptionally well done and it's hard to believe that it's even real life while you're in there. I basically just walked around all day wide eyed saying to myself "this is nuts." There is just so much going on that I found my self pretty overwhelmed at first. From the art-cars, fireworks shows, pyrotechnic effects, outrageous outfits, rides, music and so much more; there is never a dull moment at EDC. The extravagant stages are a show of their own. Sometimes it was even hard to just dance because I was so concentrated at looking at the stages! From water fountains, fire, light shows, and just the stage design in general; they alone, are amazing pieces of art.

One of the best sets of the night was hands down Armin van Buuren. He KILLED IT. The entire stage was vibing with his every move. Not to mention he played a cool remix of "Let It Go" from Frozen, which was a cool twist! Diplo was rowdy as well, getting the entire crowd twerking to "Express Yourself" and "Flap Your Wings." My personal favorite was Borgore. Mostly because I'm all about the grimey bass filled sets and his awesome samples, that are almost impossible not to dance to.

The night ended with a sunrise and by the time we got back to the hotel the sky was already completely light, hence why I say we are nocturnal now. That was only day 1 though and we've still got 2 more days in store!

May 23, Summer Camp Music Festival

We woke up bright and early to leave Traverse City to make the drive down to SCAMP. We had a bit of a caravan, my two best friends from home tagged along with us! The drive actually seemed short compared to the 20+ hour drive to Alabama and back!

The worst part about the drive was my friends got pulled over for being to close to the car ahead of them and got COMPLETELY searched by the K-9 units! They didn't have anything illegal on them, so they were fine and free to go, but talk about a serious invasion of privacy. The cops here are desperate to catch people with drugs.


We finally got to the festival, and then waited another 20 minutes to park, which was super fun. Then we got to make the trek into the festival grounds to find our campsite! It was a bit of a walk, but not too bad! People are camped out EVERYWHERE here, in the field, in the woods, and everywhere inbetween, completely packed tent-to-tent.

We ended up camping in the field, right by the Moonshine stage! Prime location for sure. Our neighbors are super friendly too! They're from Nashville and Chicago!


After we set up camp we made our way to the first few sets of the night, Bro Safari, Robotic Pirate Monkey, and Beats Antique! Beats threw and absolutely mesmerizing set, and Zoe Jakes was spot on so cool changing costumes a total of 6 times throughout the performance!

We were pretty exhausted from traveling, so we called it a night after we saw EOTO. Since it was a really nice night we decided to hike into the woods and camp! Best decision ever. Way more comfortable than sleeping on the ground. Walking through the woods at scamp at night also has a very cool vibe, almost like you're walking through a circus. It was definitely a great way to start the weekend!



Peace and Love,
