“There may be a recession on, but that doesn't
mean the people aren't dancing. This past
weekend, North America's largest dance music festival, Electric Daisy Carnival, packed in more
than 135,000 people over two days at the L.A. Coliseum and Expo Park, topping the producer's anticipated numbers by more than 30,000.
Proving again that dance music
