New Years Eve is understood for being the final day of the 12 months. It can also be recognized for being an evening filled with festivities, and superb reveals. For an ideal instance of this, look no additional than LED‘s OMFG. Over the course of three days, San Diego was graced with performances from headlining artists corresponding to Kaskade, Illenium, San Holo, and Porter Robinson.
OMFG occurred on the newly topped “Pechanga Arena San Diego”. The Pechanga Arena is positioned within the seaside group of Point Loma, in San Diego. The area venue holds a capability of 16,100. Being an indoor area, the venue hosted one big dancefloor, with a close to 360° seating space.
I’ve attended a number of LED occasions held right here, and in all honesty this was fairly presumably one of the best one but. In years previous, the expertise right here has been affected by each uncomfortable temperatures, and poor acoustics. LED appeared to maintain each of those points in test because the venue was a cool, attendee-friendly house, with higher than common sound high quality.
If I have been to have one gripe, it might in all probability be having the dancefloor closed off by safety guards midway by every evening. This left quite a few followers caught within the stands, being pressured to observe the present from afar. I assume that is what occurs when you’ve a offered out occasion, I blame the lineup.
In years previous, the New Years Eve occasion was held over two days. This years occasion noticed LED prolong the occasion into a 3 day spectacle because the the preliminary two days offered out virtually immediately. In the top, all three days offered out, leaving hopefuls scrambling to search out tickets within the lead as much as the occasion.
The first day set the bar excessive, as newcomers Lokii, Fangs, & Mitis all introduced the warmth. The evening continued on with Slumberjack taking management, main us right into a Manilla Killa set. The finest a part of the evening was simply the particular two-hour Kaskade set. He later turned over the decks to the veteran DJ duo in Tritonal, who put their seal on an already superb evening.
Dabin, Bonnie x Clyde, & Luca Lush all got here able to play, as they set the stage for these taking part in after them, in addition to the attendees who acquired there at the beginning of the evening. Said The Sky made certain to deliver the feels, which was simply one of the best primer for Illenium. Going ahead, Boombox Cartel introduced the home down, leaving simply sufficient vitality for the gang to lose it to SAYMYNAME.
What was in all probability my favourite evening of OMFG was this one, as there have been a number of artist I had but to expertise on the schedule. Yetep, Gammer, and Valentino Khan all introduced the fireplace that they’re recognized for, nevertheless it wasn’t till San Holo took the stage that issues slowed down a bit. 1788-L adopted, tearing up the dancefloor together with his signature type of bass music, main the best way for an epic Ekali set. Porter Robinson closed off OMFG, and I used to be truthfully stunned that everybody in attendance nonetheless had vitality to maintain going. It was straightforward to see that a majority of the gang was there for him, oh Porter.
Kaskade is well among the best within the recreation, and the truth that the gang acquired to expertise a particular two-hour set is superb. A real DJ in each sense of the phrase, Kaskade introduced his A-game, and saved the vibe going properly into the evening.
Ekali has been everywhere in the information in terms of the world of Dance Music. I lastly acquired the possibility to test him out, and now I can perceive why. The man is aware of the way to throwdown a correct set, and maintain the vibe alive. His edit of Martin Garrix‘s ‘Scared To Be Lonely‘ had time feeling nonetheless there for a minute.
Ringing within the new 12 months with San Holo needs to be my favourite second of the entire weekend. As of late, he’s actually switched issues up fairly a bit. He performed the entire tracks that we’ve come to know and love from him. What I loved was that his set contained most of, if not all, of the tracks from ‘album1‘. It was very awe-inspiring to see him whip out his guitar and play his melodies dwell as properly.
LED‘s OMFG is predicted to return on the tail finish of 2019, so make sure you be looking out. For extra occasions, make sure you take a look at My Life Everyday, have a contented 2019!
