EDC Orlando - Day 1

After many months of preparation, Electric Daisy Carnival - Orlando finally arrived! Let's take a look around Day 1.
The kineticFIELD main stage dominates the event!
DJ Acraze (USA) opened the show.
The backside of the main stage shows just how massive it is.
There are 5 stages of music at EDC-Orlando and one of the most fun ones is Corona Electric Beach.
Not many people yet for DJ Tegi (USA) out of Miami doing House.
Another fun one is the Boombox Art Car stage!
