Alison Wonderland‘s performance at EDC Las Vegas was one of the festival’s top highlights of 2019. The Aussie beatsmith, who grabbed the runner up spot for Dancing Astronaut‘s top artist of the year in 2018, managed to squeeze in an extra performance at EDC this year, far from the larger-than-life main stage she commanded on the festival’s opening night.

Making her way to the Art Car for a secret strictly house set, the Run producer gave unsuspecting fans an encore performance glued together by floor-ready dance cuts. Best of all, the secret set was uploaded to Pornhub for everyone’s streaming pleasure. It had to live somewhere, right? The set comes as a highly recommended listen, though, you might want to hold off on clicking the link below while you’re at work or school. Enjoy.

STREAM NOW: San Holo pulls out the stops at EDC’s main stageSan Holo Album1 Announcement

Bitbird boss San Holo is guiding EDC into its final morning over at the Kinetic Field. The Dutch future bass pioneer is primed to bring the energy levels up via his unique blend of sentimental melodicism and a tight, thumping low-end. This set might err to the former of the two traits tonight; on May 17, Holo tweeted that his set would be the “most emotional” he’s ever played, and implied some teary moments were in store. It will likely include new music from his September 2018 LP, album1, in addition to newer cuts from Bitbird signees from the Gouldian Finch 3 compilation.

San Holo has been heavy on the album campaign trail since it released, scoring key performances at many iconic festivals—including EDC Las Vegas. He’s also been confirmed to play San Francisco’s Outside Lands in July.

Where hasn’t Diplo been lately? 2019 has seen peak public expansion of his musical palate, where he’s spun everything from deep house at Get Lost Miami, to country fusion at Stagecoach. The multi-platinum record holder returns to the electronic sound that lent to his breakout years ago for another headlining EDC set. He’ll be playing at the main stage, Kinetic Field, where he also headlined the year prior in 2018, and in 2017 alongside Alison Wonderland and JAUZ.

Diplo shocked fans at Coachella by swapping out his more popular bass get-up for house, leading fans to wonder what he has in store for his behemoth Las Vegas performance. Luckily, they can watch live as the action unfolds. Listen to see if he slips in some cuts off his latest EP, Higher Ground, or his new collaboration with Madonna and Quavo, “Future.”

The moment has finally arrived for Dillon Francis to stir EDC‘s Kinetic Field, with his iconic bass-laden, moombahton sound. His choice slot at the festival’s main stage comes after a series of huge developments on the career front. In the past six months alone, the Latin Grammy nominee went on an expansive national tour alongside Alison Wonderland, ventured further into television with a Fox deal for Gerald’s World, and packed out the Sahara Tent both weeks of Coachella.

Francis also confirmed that This Mixtape Is Fire 2 will make it to digital shelves sometime in May or June—thus, this notable EDC performance serves as a ripe testing ground for new music on the record. The mixtape’s debut was in 2015. It’s also likely he’ll inject his latest anthem with lovelytheband, “Chamge Your Mind,” somewhere in the mix. Listen closely for new dancefloor weapons until 4:14am.

Dillon’s is the stage’s penultimate performer, with Jamie Jones taking over afterward to close out.

High winds cause EDC stage shutdowns and evacuation confusion

High winds cause EDC stage shutdowns and evacuation confusionEdclv

Hazardous windy conditions have struck a blow on EDC Las Vegas once again. On Saturday night, May 18, the festival’s main stage Kintetic Field and the Dreamstate-hosted Quantum Valley were temporarily shut down due to high winds. Some of the advisory signs also told attendees to evacuate the premises when in reality this wasn’t needed, leading to widespread confusion and upset.

The shutdown didn’t persist through the rest of the night, and eventually both stages reopened. Insomniac also took to its social media platforms to advise guests they could re-enter; however, a large amount had already long exited the venue. Angry comments swelled on Twitter.

EDC Las Vegas has faced wind issues before. In 2012, its second year at the Speedway, the festival fully shut down and fans were barred from entry. Markus Schulz and Steve Aoki notably kept the party going, however, throwing impromptu sets at EDC’s pop-up stages for those that stayed behind.

Weekend Rewind: Anna Lunoe and Alison Wonderland claim EDC history as first female solo main-stage acts

Weekend Rewind: Anna Lunoe and Alison Wonderland claim EDC history as first female solo  main-stage actsEDC LV 2016 Kinetic Field

With another chapter of EDC Las Vegas underway, Dancing Astronaut looks back at a watershed moment in the festival’s 20+ years running: Anna Lunoe and Alison Wonderland taking the main stage for ransom in 2016. They were the first solo female acts to do so.

Lunoe, known for her unorthodox—looney, if you will—strain of house and club stylings, isn’t necessarily your run-of-the-mill main stage artist; she herself attested the notion in an interview with EDC organizers at Insomniac shortly following the momentous appearance. Nevertheless, the OWSLA-aligned, Australian-bred Lunoe dug deep into her HYPERHOUSE crates for what proved a scene-altering set under the Electric Sky, despite some minor sound interference from the festival’s audio techs letting the opening ceremony music bleed in. But Lunoe, sleep-deprived and still acclimating herself to brand new CDJs, bulldozed through the accidental interruption like the tireless talent she’s proven herself to be behind the decks for over a decade.

Another culturally disruptive (for the better) Aussie and classically trained cellist, by the name of Alison Wonderland, further solidified the long-time-coming female ferocity sweeping over EDC, taking the main stage under her more-than-adept wing that Sunday. The melodic/experimental trap talent’s indelible legacy amongst women in dance music is still ever-blossoming. In 2018, she took home the highest paycheck in Coachella history to be issued to a female DJ, following her Sahara Tent performance, which amassed over 20,000 awe-stricken spectators. An outspoken advocate for mental health, Wonderland also secured an auspicious cover story this year for Billboard, wherein she traced her often tumultuous rise to EDM superstardom, and accredited music as her most vital vessel for forging human connection.

Here’s to these two torrentially talented tastemakers—as well as all the other convention-confronting women in dance music carving out a path for the often-overlooked female talent across the globe. Though the path is still largely untrodden, as Wonderland this year serves as the only female act on the main stage roster. The EDC Vegas side stages want for naught, however, as some of the most in-demand women in dance music (and acts in general), including REZZ, TOKiMONSTA, and Amelie Lens are effectively offsetting the overwhelmingly male 2019 makeup.

He continues by delving into areas of nostalgia with timeless tunes such as Cajmere‘s “Percolater”, and Camelphat‘s intoxicating remix of Calvin Harris‘ “I’m Not Alone”, and dives deeper into the immersive melodies of Anjunadeep 10 select “Prospect” by Nox Vahn and Marsh.

EDC Las Vegas has cemented its legacy into the landscape of electronic music festivals across the world, curating a distinctly unique excitement for its arrival. From the preceding week-long, pool party festivities that make up EDC Week, to the recent undertaking of Camp EDC, the festival’s newly introduced campgrounds, Las Vegas transforms its atypical glitzy, nightclub fronted atmosphere into the ultimate glitter-speckled, gaudy outfit-approved haven for EDC attendees during the month of May.

The festival’s 2018 edition saw the birth of their camping program, which brought in thousands of fervent attendees impatiently awaiting to kick off their weekend festivities. After a successful inaugural run, this new amenity will return for 2019’s upcoming weekend. Campers will be privy to a handful of exclusive activities such as the campground pre-party and daytime parties, health and wellness workshops and communal endeavors. Insomniac has tailored the campground experience with their headliners at the helm for its second year, attesting to Insomniac’s ongoing commitment toward self improvement in the events space. In preparation of Camp EDC’s second round over the May 16-20 weekend, Dancing Astronaut has composed the ultimate Camp EDC survival guide – fit with tips, tricks, and experienced knowledge on how to make the most of your EDC experience.

Glam up your campsite

Your campsite will become your temporary weekend home—so make it feel like it!  Not only do you get to show off some wicked site design skills, but personalizing your campsite will make it easier for your friends to locate your site. Come bearing your flashiest flags, totem poles or inflatables to decorate. Make a checklist to ensure no camping essentials are forgotten at home. If you’re missing anything, check out the on-site general store for those last-minute necessities.

Snap a picture of your campsite number

Much like navigating a maze, getting back to your campsite can be difficult to steer through after dancing till dawn. After hauling all of your camping essentials onto your site, be sure to snap a few pics of your site number and your tent to keep handy. Rather than waiting for the festival shuttles to head back to the strip, take comfort in the fact that sleep is just a few steps away.

Take disco naps to keep you dancing 

Arguably the biggest perk of staying in Camp EDC is that your bed is always a few minutes away. Whether you’re cooling down under the Cascada tent or holing up in your Shiftpod, take advantage of the napping opportunities to keep you energized throughout the weekend.

Snack smarter

Between exclusive campsite sets from Joyryde and Justin Martin, to interrupting your mid-day nap to join in goat yoga—catching a bite to eat might not be the first thing that comes to mind. Be sure to stay hydrated and eat while you can in-between your daily activities to keep you fueled for a night under the electric sky. If you’re looking to crush some cravings, Camp EDC is welcoming over 15 gourmet food vendors on the grounds to satisfy all appetites.

Bring extra supplies

Those who have attended the inaugural edition of Camp EDC are no stranger to the scorching sunlight that beams upon the campgrounds. Come packed with essentials like hydration packs, sunscreen and ear plugs. In this case, having more is better than having less. Pro tip: sharing and caring with your neighbors is a surefire way to lock in some festival friends for life.

Arrive early and stay late 

Checking into the campgrounds isn’t a walk in the park when thousands of other campers have the same idea in mind. Rather than attempting to weasel your way into the campgrounds with everyone else while the entrance line is at its peak, arrive for the check-in open time on the day of your arrival. Your crew, and your future self will thank you.

Disconnect and connect with those around you 

Cellular service on the campgrounds may be spotty, allowing you to take the time to get to know the people around you. If you really need to utilize your network, keep an eye out for accessible areas where the wifi is flowing. Areas like the Carnival Square in the festival grounds is prepped with free wifi, food and fun all weekend long.
