KICK ASS CHICAS KICK ASS
JUNE 24-26TH 2011. LAS VEGAS MOTOR SPEEDWAY
Kick Ass Chica’s, Jennie Cañas, 19, college student from Dallas, Texas, and Cynthia Tello, Art Director for Hudson Jeans, attend the 15th Annual Electric Daisy Carnival held for the first time in Las Vegas.
Electric Daisy Carnival had previously been held in Los Angeles, but due to the uprising of frequent irresponsible party goer’s the City of LA put a ban on the music event. Insomniac the promoters for EDC moved the event to the emerging electronic capital of the world, Las Vegas. Which, is understandable considering it is no clandestine rumor that Vegas is fast replacing Ibiza as the destination for electronic music.
EDC was headlined with such world renowned DJ’s as Tiesto, Paul Oakenfold, David Guetta, Afro Jack, and Swedish House Mafia. Now, granted you can more frequently catch any of these big names any night throughout the year in Las Vegas, yet what made EDC so special were these artists together performing along side each other over 3 nights. This combined with stunning visuals from hundreds of LED screens, especially on the Main Stage in the Kinetic Field, amazing puppetry, costumes, installation art, and a nightly 20 min firework show made for a musical and visual moment in time….3 NIGHTS IN A ROW.
According to our Kick Ass Chica’s who attended the event, Miss Cynthia Tello suggests, “Conditions were a little rough the first night. It left us skeptical on how the rest of the weekend would flow, but by night two everything came together seamlessly. In the end the music made it all worth it.” Miss Jennie Cañas sums it up best when asked for her opinion on EDC’s first run in Vegas, “After the first night was over and morning struck I was ready for it to be night again. The last and final night was bitter sweet and it was a damn good time.” In other words…..” A great time was had by all….”
