    Name: Jake
    Age: 27  
    Hometown: San Jose, CA
    Where do you see yourself in 20 years? Still raving. Maybe taking my kids to rave. I fell in love with the scene when I was 17 years old. This is my 10th Nocturnal, next year will be my 10th EDC, and it just keeps getting better and better. As long as the vibes are still here, I think it’s going to be phenomenal—it doesn’t matter how old or young. I remember at EDC 2013, I met a couple, and they were 52 and 56. Age is just a number. If you’re good vibes and good people, it’s great!
    Number of times you’ve been to Nocturnal? 10
    If you were DJing the festival, what’s one song you would play? “No One Knows Who We Are” by Kaskade, because I feel like that song really describes the scene. Unless you’re a part of the scene, you don’t know what it’s about. You constantly hear people bashing the scene; they only think it’s about drugs and alcohol. In reality, I’m a sober raver, and it’s not about that. It’s about the vibe and people.

    Kevin: Hopefully still listening to dance music. I’ve got 12 years going now.
    If you were DJing the festival, what’s one song you would play?
    Brennan: Otto Knows “Parachute”
    Kevin: Moksi “Brace Yourself”

     

    Name: Daniece
    Age: 22
    Hometown: Riverside, CA
    Where do you see yourself in 20 years? I see myself in another country, vacationing and enjoying life. I’d want to be in a beach environment, maybe Morocco or Puerto Rico.
