“If I never come to this again, I simply wished to state that I did it,” stated Engle, standing in a tank top, denim shorts and a pair of all-white Nike Flying force 1 shoes outside the Kinetic Field phase throughout a set from DJ Will Sparks. “I’ll remember the brightness of the lights and particularly the feel of the bass from all these DJs.”

Their awestruck faces, illuminated by the flashing stage lights, appeared to verify their stated satisfaction of the festival. “We came to Las Vegas simply for this,” a shirtless Cielo stated in his native Portuguese. “Sure, the Strip is the most popular, and the shopping is terrific, however EDC is special.”

“There’s no place I ‘d rather be this weekend,” Alves included. “This is extraordinary.”

While electronic dance music is considered a niche industry in their homeland, Jing Yang, 19, Liu Fang, 18, and Kevin Liang, 19, stated they hope names like Tiësto and Armin Van Buuren soon become mainstream in China, as the DJs have in numerous other developed regions across the world.

For the time being, the chance to see such artists live is a rarity for the three Tianjin natives, who also went to EDC for the very first time this weekend. On Saturday, Yang, Fang and Liang– all wearing red T-shirts with a variety of glowsticks and “kandi” beads hung from their neck– danced outside the Circuit Premises stage throughout performance by DJ Oliver Heldens.

“We’ve traveled a long method to see this,” Yang said. “Now is our time to delight in.”
