Headliners, you did it! You made it through another full weekend of EDC Las Vegas!

We’ve had a blast here at EDC Las Vegas 2017, an amazing three-day adventure into a world of music, love, good vibes and imagination. It’s always tough to kiss EDC goodbye, but we know we’ll always reunite on the dancefloor again next year.

For now, we bid farewell to another year Under the Electric Sky with some more awesome people. See you next year!

What’s the most memorable thing you’ve seen/witnessed this weekend? Kygo’s set last night was unbelievable. I’ve seen him a bunch of times. He’s one of my favorites, and this was his first time here, obviously. I knew it was going to be good, but I don’t think anything could have prepared me for how perfect it was. I loved that he had that couple come up onstage, and the guy proposed to his girl at the end of the set. The whole thing was amazing.
Best festival pro tip you’d give to someone doing this for the first time: It would be to come with an open mind and an open heart, and know that everybody here is here for the same reason. We’re all here because we love this music and we love the culture, and we all just want to experience this together. Just be open-minded and loving and have the best time of your life, because that’s what EDC is to me. It’s home.
