The one and only…Electric Daisy Carnival 2010

For those house, progressive, electronic, and trance music lovers anxiously awaiting one of the biggest national music festivals, the week of the Electric Daisy Carnival is upon us! Friday June 25 and Saturday June 26 the Colliseum in downtown Los Angeles will be exploding with 5 stages, carnival rides, food, people dressed up in what I like to call “Halloween-like” costumes (yeah – you know why), and most importantly – some of the most prominent and talented DJs in the world. Last year’s EDC was definitely an experience to be had (I still can’t get over people’s outfits – or should I say costumes). Luckily for my group of friends, we had purchased VIP tickets and didn’t have to be crushed in a sea of crazies. I had such an amazing time last year and still have my souvenir “MUSIC IS MY DRUG” t-shirt! I can’t wait until Friday!

Some of the top headliners:

Friday

Deadmau5, Swedish House Mafia, Kaskade, Chuckie, Dirty South, Afrojack, DJ Sets: Moby, Basement Jaxx, BT (Live)

Saturday

Armin Van Buuren, Above & Beyond, Benny Benassi, Will.I.Am, Laidback Luke, Afrojack, Bart B More, Dada Life, Sasha, Fedde Le Grand, Roger Sanchez, James Zabiela, Chuckie, Avicii, Boys Noize, DJ Set: Groove Armada

EDC Set Times

“The fun starts beneath the sun and see the stars when it’s done” -EDC

Save Me.

“The only way to truly Love is to let go of what you are afraid to lose and Trust that what’s meant to be will stay.”

I do have to admit, that life is a little scary sometimes. Actually, it’s REALLY scary. We have this idea of how our lives are meant to be…who should be in them, how we work, where we play… but realistically, we really have no idea. Things can be taken from us as fast as surprises can be thrown into the mix. How are we supposed to stay grounded & guided? We fight for things & people we believe in, we try each & every day to learn something new, & we eventually figure out to think with our heads & our hearts together. Sadly, life doesn’t come with a rulebook or remote control. We can’t go to Chapter 8 to read about “How to fix a broken heart” & we can’t press rewind to turn back time & fix our mistakes. But we have NOW..the present, to say the things we never said, to speak up for how we feel, to take control…so that we will hopefully live a life with minimal regrets & burned bridges. Going into the future, what we don’t know is scary, but we do know how our lives are now & no matter what, we can save ourselves & whatever else we would regret losing in the future.

Morgan Page – Fight for You  (Sultan & Ned Shepard Mix)

“So what do you want and what are you thinking?/Isn’t it about time you stuck up for me?/But what you can’t see is we’re under siege/And I only fight because I believe/Not gonna share you no/I’d fight for you”

Agnes & LMFAO – Release Me (Party Rock Remix)

“I say release me /’Cause I’m not able to/Convince myself /That I’m better off without you”

David Guetta – Gettin’ Over (Sidney Samson Remix)

“Wish I could spin my world into reverse just to have you back again, there’s no gettin’ over, there’s just no gettin’ over you”

Ben Preston ft. Susie – Remember Me

“Will you remember me, like I remember you”

Moby – Wait for Me (Laidback Luke)

“I’m gonna ask you to look away/I love my hands, but it hurts to pray/Life I have isn’t what I’ve seen/The sky is not blue and the field’s not green/Wait for me”

Moonbeam – Openhearted

“You know I care what’s deep inside/Any hurt you choose to hide/But you should know how I feel/You should know that I like you/I want to be openhearted/Why can’t you see/You gotta be open or we’ll never get started”
