1st EDC (Electronic Daisy Carnival) Memorial Day weekend - JOLIET

Overall:
#1 - I need a few reliable coordinators that would be willing to use Google Huddle or the meetup site to coordinate things..

So where do I begin with EDC. First of be ready for an experience if you have never been ! The crowd does have a heavy amount of raging 'bros', kid in full rave gear, remember this is an 18yr+ event. When you purchases ticket pay attention to the camping options and payment plan to make things more economical. I have a feeling that like EDC Vegas logistics will be an issue. I assume a crowd of[masked]k people heading to Joliet will lead to a lot of traffic but I could be wrong. Multiple stages and genres of music will be covered so there should be something for everyone. The lines ups have not been announced but I would expect big names with Trance, Prog/Electro house to show up. You should be allowed to bring empty water bottles to fill inside the venue, make sure to pack sun screen, all your meds and comfy clothes

If you do decide to camp it would be nice if you could stick together for security and fun! They will have carnivals , amazing lights, sound system, art pieces etc. that will make it an amazing experience. Consider taking an extra day of work to recover if you go all three days as it will be exhausting. In addition pay attention to any mobile apps they may release so you can build your own calendar of events.

I will try to update this as I have more info!

    It was Euphoric...it was Epic... and it was Electric! There was magic in the air. People became instant friends for life. It changed people's lives forever. This was definitely a Memorial Weekend.

    Useful Tips:
    - Fully charge your phone before you go and take an extended battery if you have it. There will not be enough towers for all the people trying to txt and find their friends and constantly trying to look to connect to towers will drain your battery fast. Go into airplane mode to conserve battery when you are not using it. and type in the TIME of your text message so friends know when you sent it, since there is at least a 10m delay during peak use. Stay of social media/data heavy apps/ photo or video modes to save battery

      - Find a central meetup spot when you first get there with your friends. Have a meetup spot for between sets and end of the night. Txt and phone may or may not work because of the cell tower capacity issue. Also at each stage, try to stick to one spot so all your friends who go to that stage can always find each other as you move around between shows.
      - Drink sufficient water and take care of your medical needs. Pack ear plugs so you don't go deaf :) Be safe and have fun!

    Hey guys does anybody want to meet over the weekend or early next week before all the festivals? Cell signals / logistics may make it hard to meet at the festival. I can organize a little CTF social if you will at a bar.. Give me an idea of what days/time and neighborhoods (wicker park, loop, lincoln park) in the city work for people. I think Sun - Wed next week is ideal,maybe some bar with good drink/food specials :D

    Recently joined the group, definitely gonna be hitting up this massive event. Unfortunately I won't arrive until the 25th....EDC's website says they are going to have single day passes available at a later date. Anyone know if there are limits on how many you can buy? Ideally I'd buy two single day passes
