As mentioned last week, this past weekend MetLife Stadium hosted the Electric Daisy Carnival for the first time. Needless to say, I’m still exhausted and trying to get over just how much fun it was. Nearly 45,000 people showed up each day in their best neon/daisy attire to dance and enjoy all 31 sets Friday-Sunday. There were four stages – three in the parking lot, one in the stadium – with different lineups from the best house music DJ’s. The event literally transported you from New Jersey to different world.
Since it was my first giant music festival, I didn’t know what to expect or how comfortable I would be in a large crowd but was pleasantly surprised by how well put together the entire event was. There were free carnival rides (had to go on the swings twice), free water stations, tons of good food and plenty of places to relax. For next years carnival, I definitely need to find a crazier outfit and bring along a whistle.
