They say it’s the people who make the party—and by look of the crowd at EDC this past weekend, Mexico City is the place to be if you’re looking to get your boogie on properly. Many of the Headliners who stormed into the heart of the city this year brought with them a festival flair that straight screamed fiesta. And since we love nothing more than to show some love to those who go above and beyond with their self-expression, we roped in a few of them for some good old-fashioned Awesome People fun.
