LISTEN TO CARMACKS EDC SET WHILE YOU READ THIS POST
We went to the Encore Beach Club for my dad Diplo, it was cool. But I was over it after the first 10 minutes bc of the shitty bouncers, and the 72 thousand people bunched up in the pool. I told Jenna and all of them to leave me at the black jack table while she ventured off with Joey lol. I couldn't stand the dry heat ahahah.
First off I'd like to give props to the EDC coordinators for making the decision of starting the festival at 5pm each day because it was too fucking hot in Vegas to even comprehend with anything. I can't even believe we attended a pool party during the day before we left for the actual festival. But then again... I did the same thing in Miami for Ultra so yes, I can believe it. I only went to EDC Saturday because I'm clearly a grandma and couldn't handle 3 days of 72 hour days in the desert. And also because sweet baby Aaron, Turtle, and Djemba were playing that day, might I add it was the best line-up out of the 3 days. Hands down this Vegas trip was probably one of my favorite Vegas trips I've ever had, because all my friends were in Vegas raging and we were all pretty much ditching the clubs to gamble.
Anyway, we started SaturDAY with the SYMBOLS pool party Kastle threw at the Downtown Grand hotel and it was tight, it was v low key compared to the other Vegas pool parties, but I liked this one because there weren't a lot of people in the pool, so ya gurl damn near was hittin backstrokes in the water while dancing to Jersey Club music and twirling in my drake bucket hat. (which I solely gave to Trippy Turtle at EDC, due to being so drunk lol.) We had to leave the pool party early to head to the festival and it was the most stressful thing ever. Aaron had to get his artist pass, the entire process was so annoying because the workers at the Cosmo sucked at their jobs. Whatever... bottom line everyone was good and clear once we finally stepped foot into the car and started heading to the festival
Aaron had the most packed crowd at that 7up stage. I started to shed a tear. Jk. But forreal it was wall to wall, stage to ferris wheeeeeeeel packed. It was beautiful. Also the 7up stage was super tight because it had a mezzanine floor, while none of the other stages had one. So Djemba, Falcs, and I were watching his set upstairs while swigging out of a Jameson bottle.
