RPM’s June Festival: EDC

RPM is hyped for Electric Daisy Carnival in Las Vegas this June…

Here at KZSC we represent every genre of music and talk imaginable. This year’s Electric Daisy Carnival (EDC) brings together some of the biggest and best names in electronic music and represents the various styles that electronic encompasses. And this year, the 21st annual festival’s message is “All Are Welcome Here,” a statement that we at KZSC strongly believe in.

EDC is one of North America’s largest dance music festivals. The festival begins during the second week in June in the venues and nightclubs of Las Vegas and concludes at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway. The final event is an audiovisual experience in the desert June 16 to the 18th. Feel the energy and excitement build in the official EDC Las Vegas 2017 Announcement Video, here.

The lineup was revealed today 4/27 at 6:30pm, so stay tuned for some lineup artwork!

Wobbleland Round 3

For the last three years, I have been honored to attend one of San Jose’s biggest bass festivals of the year Wobbleland. Every year Vital Events brings us bigger surprises and this year was no different. The bass festival extended this year to take over three days during President’s Day Weekend. The excitement started on Friday with KRANE and Alexander Lewis, Rezz, Ekali, and Snails. The whole weekend sold out, but as always there was plenty of room to dance at the City National Civic.

Saturday’s highlights included Zomboy and PARTY FAVOR and Sunday’s best included dubstep-heavy Dastik and JOYRIDE. The friendlyness of the crowd and the ease of getting water only tops off how much effort Vital puts into putting on this event.

Here are some day one recaps, including my personal favorite the dark bass-heavy DJ Rezz.

KZSC at the Santa Cruz Music Festival

Over President’s weekend, 10 KZSC staff members took to the streets of downtown Santa Cruz to interview and document the musical festival for our listeners. Throughout the day, we aired interviews and updates for those of you who could not make it down to the event. We at KZSC are very thankful to have had the opportunity to partner with SCMF and play a role in supporting our local artists.

The festival included over 250 artists, a majority of which were local to Santa Cruz! The whole event was very well done and brought so many people to downtown and to local businesses. The best part of the festival was that over half of the venues participating in the event were free and open to the public. We got a chance to chat with Half Stack, the Devil Sliders, Partywave, SO$AY, CVRSE, The Coffis Brothers, Alwa Gordon, The M Machine, Louis the Child and Zion I over the weekend. Then the KZSC crew got to enjoy the music around us at all the venues and many restaurants downtown! My personal favorite act was seeing the M Machine DJ Motiv on Sunday night.

We hope everyone enjoyed their weekend and we are looking forward to next year!
