Electric Daisy Carnival Didn’t Kill Anyone In Vegas

I can enjoy electronic music, but I’m not moved by watching a DJ spin live.  I can listen to a CD or download a set and get the same feeling.  That said, almost every tweet I read about the Electronic Daisy Carnival (EDC) this past weekend was positive and it seems as if everyone attending had a fun time in Vegas.  What I noticed were lots of girls wearing neon tutu’s and I’m fine with that.

The mainstream media covering the event goes a different route.  Instead of focusing on the good time most people had much of the mainstream media coverage seemed to touch on the fact that nobody died at EDC as the most important thing from the weekend.  I would think focusing on the great time would make a much nicer story, but what do I know.  I’m a cynic.

This article from the Hollywood Press, not only produced the sweet picture above but talks mostly about the music at the festival and only touches on the minimal crime.  There’s a movie due out later this year that will feature EDC.  I’ll wait for netflix to pick it up and stream it.  It seems as if it will be fairly visually stimulating in the way that “Transformers” movies are.  Check the Hollywood Press if you want to know more.

    The MSM coverage of this event drove me NUTS. Every night on My News 3, they kept a running tally of the crimes (misdemeanors) that took place at the event. The number were low, but discussed as though they were all the event was about. They also kept a tally of fatalities, even though none ever happened!!!! They were salivating over the idea, and it made me sick.

      Thanks for making me feel kind of sane, Emily. I’m glad I noticed something real, not just imagined. It’s a shame, it seems as if most people had a great time here and also at the DMB Caravan in AC.
