For some, it’s not just about the music. It’s the whole package of experiencing ecstasy without the ecstasy for one sweet moment.
To my understanding, EDM isn’t just about the crazy tunes and the sick beats. It’s practically breeding a new youth culture movement we have yet to see and experience. I’m not a big fan of the music or the festivals myself, but I do have mad respect for the people who do take their time to go to these kind of parties. These people are seriously badass for enduring many hours of constant raving, and dancing to upbeat songs while only having short breaks in between sets. Also, I love the vibe of how you can just be yourself around the music and people, especially in festivals. There is no judgement whatsoever on how you dance or what you wear and I think that’s important when you like a certain type of music.
There should be a sense of belongingness.
Imagine yourself in a huge crowd of people surrounded with complete strangers. You might not know each other, but you all know that you’re in one place for one reason: to experience happiness. And then the first song comes on. There are little to no words in it, but then does it really have to have lyrics for it to induce emotions from people? Next thing you know, you’re colliding with sweaty bodies, jumping up and down without a care in the world, because well, you’re in complete bliss. You forget all your problems and worries for a while, because you’re too busy having fun with people who share the same love for the music as you.
This moment is your own little escape from the harsh realities awaiting to face you afterwards, so do yourself a favor and dance your heart out because these kinds of moments don’t last forever.
Now do you understand the big deal about EDM?
