Winner: Electronic Daisy Carnival
The Electric Daisy Carnival that takes place every year in the Las Vegas summer heat is a highly anticipated music festival by teens and adults alike. Taking place on Jun. 20 this year, EDC is a three-day dusk to dawn festival of bass drops and neon-colored strobe lights.
“EDC looks fun because of the lights and all of the costumes that people wear,” senior Jerico Avenido said
“I actually appreciate the music and I won’t just go for the fun and the costumes. All of my favorite DJs are usually at EDC so I am excited to be of age,” junior June Santos said.
“I am going to try to go to EDC this year, but mostly for the costumes because I think that costumes are my niche and I am excited to make my own,” senior Alexis Kenney said.
Winner: Life is Beautiful
The Life is Beautiful festival offers a better choice of music ranging from alternative rock to folk. EDC is one of those festivals to put on your bucket list for the flamboyant costumes and atmosphere full of energy, but the Life is Beautiful festival is more fitting to teens. The festival held in October is full of opportunities to hear a different sound while attracting all types of music lovers.
