Get out your crocheted bikini tops, fuzzy multicolored boots, and sealed bottles of water for the Electric Daisy Carnival, the annual EDM festival that drops the bass on the MetLife Stadium this Memorial Day weekend. As usual, EDC covers all the bas(s)es, bringing in industry vets like techno mastermind Carl Cox and global hotshot DJ Tiesto along with up-and-comers such as 19-year-old Martin Garrix, brothers-in-arms Cash Cash, and a live set from UK garage revival champions Rudimental. Complete with fireworks and amusement park rides, not to mention giant glowing owl decoys and at least one octopus float.
