Concert Report: Electric Daisy Carnival Orlando - Day 2

A few hours of sleep and than back out to the Orlando Citrus Bowl for Day 2 of Electric Daisy Carnival - Orlando!
When I parked my car across the street from the stadium I was hearing this amazing music set emanating from the Neon Garden stage so I had to go check it out!
It was coming from Cocodrills (USA). Wow!
An early crowd already on hand for this Miami-based duo.
Only got the final 10 minutes before the Kidnap Kid (GB) took over.
People dancing to his House music set!
It's November in Orlando and temps were in the upper 80's so I had to seek some coolness so I finally made it over to the cavernous Circuit Grounds stage!
Was really here for the shade but got to hear a good Bass & Electrohouse set from No Mana (USA).
The up-and-coming DJ/Producer is from California.
After a frosty cold beverage, headed back out into daylight and the Kinetic Field main stage from DJ Drezo (USA).
Another California-based DJ, he was delivering a EDM/House set.
You can never go wrong with Go Go girls!
OK, back to the shade for Orlando's very own DJ DallasK (USA)!
The first half of his set was Bass-oriented before he finally began putting out some good EDM hits! He had played here at EDC-Orlando back in 2012 when he was just a "local".
Wearing an Orlando City Lions jersey, DallasK is from Windermere and went to West Orange High School.
Set included Calvin Harris' "How Deep Is Your Love" & Eric Prydz "Generate".  Both those DJ's played their songs here at EDC on Friday night!
Dance floor was filling up fast!
No shortage of scenery in the place!
Ending his set with his massive hit collaboration with Adventure Club (CDN), "Crash 2.0".
Coming over to pose for the Blog!
With 3 stages of music outside the Orlando Citrus Bowl, people were always streaming around!
Daisy girls!
Heading back to the main stage!
As you can see, already pretty crowded down there and it was only 5PM.
EDM set from DJ Dannic (NL).
Dutch DJ's ruled EDC-Orlando this year!
Another one, DJ Quintino (NL) taking control at 6PM!
One of the DJ's out of Afrojack's (NL) stable, he had also played here at EDC-Orlando in 2012.
Day turned into night during his set!
Big crowd waiting for Audien (USA)!
Playing the song that probably brought him into fame, "Leaving You".
EDC-Orlando packed!  They've tried EDC's in Denver, Dallas, Chicago, etc over the years but domestically only Las Vegas, New York & Orlando remain.
Audien also playing most of his recent hits!
Dancing in tutus in VIP!
Remaining at the mainstage for DJ duo Blasterjaxx (NL)!
They would do an entirely EDM/Dance hit set!
Including one of our favorites from Mannequins, part of Faithless (GB) "Insomnia"!
Between after-dark sets at the mainstage, this guy would introduce fireworks under the theme of "Water! Earth! Fire! Air!"
Carnage (USA) wrecking the place!
And leaving us in a state of carnage!
Headed back to the Neon Garden for DJ duo Gorgon City (GB)!
Their Deep House set had such an Old Skool vibe to it including the use of live vocalists!
I think this is an emerging trend in the electronic music world as what is old is new again!
Young crowd but really getting into this old vibe!
Electronica from Gorgon City!
Packed as far as the eye could see here too!
OMG, up next here was DJ duo Get Real (USA), a collaborative effort between DJ's Claude Vonstroke and Green Velvet!
That look you get when listening to real Techno!
Bouncing to a Techno version of Tiga's (CDN) "Let's Go Dancing All Night Dancing"!
One more stop at the Circuit Grounds stage for Seven Lions (USA).
Between the darkness and smoke, all we would see is his long hair, lol!
Absolutely packed well-beyond the ceiling area!  Loud & epic set!  Playing his hit "Strangers"!
And then back to the main stage for headliner DJ Kaskade (USA)!
OMG, are there any songs this guy had that didn't become megahits?
Opening with "Disarm You" and "Breathe" (with Project 46 (CDN)) and then going through his amazing set of Dance hits!
Just an amazing experience right here in O-Town! Incredible weather!
A good time was had by all!
