This past weekend, EDC Las Vegas brought thousands of people from around the world together again at the Motor Speedway. Memories were made as both veterans and first-timers experienced a variety of DJs offered over the 3 days. Unfortunately, high winds put a hold on the festival on Saturday night. Event organizers closed the kineticField and Quantum Valley stages and attendees were told to evacuate and find shelter.
Fortunately, after a few hours, festival-goers were allowed re-entry into the area and both stages reopened. Even though the festival resumed normal activities, it would be impossible to make up for missed performances. Kaskade was one of the artists who were unable to perform due to the winds. Sadly, it wasn’t possible to reschedule his main stage set that weekend and fans would have to move on.
On Facebook, Kaskade voiced his frustration but stated that “it was the right call” to close the stage. Still, after weeks of preparation both mentally and music-wise, it was a big let-down. Like any athlete preparing for an event, Kaskade mentioned his rush of adrenaline and eagerness to get on the stage in Las Vegas. In the end, it was just not meant to be. Mother Nature is just a force impossible to combat, especially with outdoor events.
Fans still have a chance to see Kaskade play in Vegas, as he is a resident at KAOS, located in the Palms Casino. His next gig at KAOS is set for Saturday, May 25th! Moreover, he says he’s hoping that those who missed out at EDC will be able to make a show in the near future.
