PI Update: Sentinel Acknowledges Anniversary

A couple months late to the party, the Orlando Sentinel finally acknowledged the 10th Anniversary of the closing of Pleasure Island yesterday in an article posted in their paper. The article was written by Disney-beat writer and Theme Park Ranger Dewayne Bevil, someone who was in my opinion, a big PI fan.
You can read the entire article here.

PI Update: Electric Wonderland

With EDC Week now completed for another year, we return to our regularly scheduled  programming. Having published all the beautiful EDC lights, it reminded me of how "electric" Pleasure Island was too!
Of course Mannequins dominated the scene!
Club Motion always had an electric glow about it!
70's / 80's club 8TRAX was resplendent in its funky day glow look!
At the top of Hill Street, BET Soundstage Club always cast a distinguished light on the adjoining plaza.
While at the bottom of Hill Street, the Funmeister declared good times for all!
Electric times at PI.  Never more.

EDC Orlando - Day 2

With just a few hours of sleep completed, it was time to get up and do it again! Day 2 at Electric Daisy Carnival - Orlando!
As the gates opened and gathered crowds strolled in, first stop was the neonGARDEN stage for DJ Carlos Mendoza (USA).
House set as people trickled into the tent.
Then over to the circuitGROUNDS stage and seeing Damaged Goods (USA) for the first time.
The early crowd looking on.
The Boombox Art Car was already bouncing!
For DJ Sloth (USA).
Then up close and personal with the kineticFIELD main stage!
And a great House/Techno set from DJ Adin (NL).
Then over to the sandy shores of Corona Electric Beach.
Mermaid spotted!
While DJ duo NXWYXRK (USA) played the tunes!
There's always fun to be had at the beach!
Back to the tent for Blog-favorite DJ Kevin Knapp (USA / D).
More ass cheeks per capita than any other EDC I've been to!
Back over to the circuitGROUNDS which is located across Rio Grande Avenue from the rest of the festival.
For DJ Loudpvck (USA).
Delivering Heavy Bass!
You can never go wrong with Go Go girls!
Head-banging crowd quickly filling in the field.
More of the same from DJ Saymyname (USA).
Quick look at the rear of the house.
Spotted at kineticFIELD: The Z brothers DJ David Z (USA) & DJ Tony Z (USA).
Spotted backstage: Russ from Disco Donny & HTG.
Spotted at circuitGROUNDS: Pam & Frank
Spotted at VIP: High Security
Spotted at neonGARDEN: DJ Lola B (USA)
Spotted earning her 30 seconds of fame: Julia
Spotted on the skydeck: DJ Edgar V (USA)
Spotted in the stadium: Sarah K
The EDC kite team!
Very cool!
Lots of signs and totems!
Lots of flags too!
Looking south into McCracken Field which is home to the Boombox stage and lots of vendors.
About 5PM and kineticFIELD really beginning to fill in.
Tag team set from DJ Alok (BR) and DJ duo Nervo (AUS).
First time seeing the Nervo sisters' new hair styles!
The sun had set and now it was time for what everyone had gathered for!
Tiësto (NL)
Long separated from his Trance days, it was a pure EDM set with a lot of his newer hits.
I've seen many crowds over the years here at the EDC main stage (including for Tiësto) but this was as packed as I've ever seen it!
Another view from the Jumbotron inside Camping World Stadium.
After Tiësto there was a fireworks show and then DJ Kayzo (USA) and he went a bit more Hardstyle on us.
But a few minutes into his set it became noticeable that a fire was underway in the left fireworks pod!
And it became pretty large!
Very proud of the Orlando Fire Department though as they arrived within 5 minutes and had the fire out within another 5 minutes!
The two views above taken off the stadium's Jumbotron. Great work OFD!
Until the fire was out they asked everyone to vacate kineticFIELD so the other music areas got really crowded!
More Heavy Bass from DJ G-Buck at Corona Beach.
At the boombox, DJ Jessica Audiffred (MEX).
Her Dubstep / Bass set had the crowd in a frenzy!
When it was time to chill, there was the lake shore.
Grassy fields.
Cuddle huddles in the hammock.
Or just wander around in your tighty whiteys!
You could dress up.
Or dress down!
Into the tent for The Martinez Brothers (USA).
First time ever seeing them live!
The lasers were flying!
And their Tech House drops had everyone bouncing!
OK, one last visit to the main stage which had reopened!
EDM/House set from DJ Vini Vici (USA).
EDC is so beautiful at night!
DJ Kaskade (USA) would close out the night with his catalog of hits.
Insomniac reports their largest EDC Orlando ever with a 2-day attendance of 110,000.  It was pretty amazing and a good time was had by all!
