Dj Khaled’s Not So Good, Very Bad Night at EDC Vegas

It should have been Dj Khaled’s time to get some good videos and photos for his Snapchat or Instagram. Instead, Dj Khaled, invited to perform on the last day of EDC Las Vegas this year, was booed off the stage after a set of sound issues, famous catch phrases, and short abrupt transitions from one 30 seconds of a track to another by his DJ.   The crowd could only take so much, erupting into a chorus of boos and aggravating grumbling.  Dj Khaled, dedicated to the show going on in spite of a bad crowd reaction, moved around on stage and mustered his best lines to try to win his audience over to no avail. Dj Khaled claimed on Instagram that his set had problems because of the sound crew and alleged that they cut his set short.
A video taken by Yo Swan shows Dj Khaled refusing to exit the stage when prompted. Instead of leaving, the DJ responds by playing “Jump Around” by House Of Pain.  If there had been no sound problems, there is no telling if the crowd would have eventually joined  Mr. Khaled all the way up and willingly put their hands in the air. The world may never know.

Snapchat Discovered the Power of One of Its Most Popular Features at an EDM Festival

Snapchat co-founders realized the power of Snapchat’s Live Stories feature at EDC Las Vegas, which is one of the largest EDM festivals. “I remember Evan and myself were actually out in EDC Las Vegas when we launched this product, and so we were half expecting to see nothing,” Snap co-founder and Chief Technology Officer Bobby Murphy said in the company’s roadshow video. “Instead we saw the most amazing content covering an event that we’ve ever seen.” Snapchat launched Live Stories at EDC in 2014. The company realized that if they could create a digital geographic demarcation aka geofence” around a certain area, they could get users to post videos and photos from the music festival. When a user snaps a picture or a video from the zone, they get an option to include their content in a community-sourced public channel.     Photo Source: Insomniac
