Despite record-breaking temperatures, 2017’s much-anticipated EDC Vegas run was once again a success. The massive event has drawn over 100,000 people a day to the Las Vegas Motor Speedway for years now, and 2017 was no different. The stage design was impressively over the top, the production was stellar and, most importantly, the music was great. About half of the sets were uploaded to SoundCloud over the weekend, featuring a host of performances from artists across the board.
As for our favorites over at TSIS, Friday night saw a special b2b set featuring Audien and 3LAU, two producers with a similar signature vibe that came together seamlessly onstage. The two kept it interesting, switching between heavy originals like SAYMYNAME’s “Turn Up Da Bass” and lighter, euphoric tracks like Audien’s “One More Weekend.” San Holo’s Friday night set also impressed, tying in hip-hop and rap remixes with various euphoric originals to create a truly captivating performance.
On Saturday the always unique Mr. Carmack switched things up with a tastefully experimental set, pulling the crowd in with light, atmospheric synths before taking things deeper and deeper throughout the rest of his performance. Never one to conform to the status quo, the artist provided an interesting departure from some of the other producers in the mix.
Sunday also saw an insane b2b performance, this time from bass powerhouses Jauz, Diplo and Alison Wonderland. The set was infectiously heavy from the first note, starting strong with an intense trap remix of Skrillex and Habstrakt’s popular single “Chicken Soup” and keeping the energy high from there.
Although these were some of our favorites, EDC had something for everyone this year. Check out the sets below and enjoy!
