• Awesome People We Met on Day 2 of EDC Mexico 2017

    There you have it, Headliners. EDC Mexico 2017 was a hit yet again. We can always count on our international Headliners to bring their A game, and this year was nothing short of awesome, thanks to all the awesome people who came along for the ride.

    Get to know these Awesome People from day two of EDC Mexico.

    Name: Subi
    Age: 25
    Hometown: China, but living in Los Angeles now.
    Is this your first time coming to EDC Mexico? Yes, my first time.
    What’s one thing you wish everyone knew about Mexico? This is my very first time in Mexico—ever. I’m looking forward to experiencing the culture.
    How would you describe EDC to your friends who have never had the opportunity to come? I haven’t been to many Insomniac events in the US (I’ve been to EDC Vegas and Escape), but I feel like Mexico is one of a kind—especially this wasteLAND stage. I’ve never seen it before; it’s very urban, and I like the vibe. People are just going crazy here for trap and drum & bass. I love it. It feels different from the shows I’ve been to, because I feel like Mexico really brings its own culture, and I really like how the Mexican culture is blended into EDC here. I mean, Vegas is massive, but I really wanted to try something different. I feel like people here don’t dress up as much, but it’s new—only the fourth year—so I think the fans here will learn, and you’ll see more dressing up in the future.
