The ‘50s are remembered as the breakthrough period for rock ‘n roll, the ‘80s for hip hop, and the ‘90s for alternative. Decades from now, music historians will look back at the 2010s as the golden age of EDM. Electronic music, and what a broad term that’s become, is experiencing a massive boom with droves of DJs, mixers and beat chemists constantly experimenting with their ever-expanding toolkits. Just in the last few years we have seen electropop, dubstep, post-dubstep, trap, tropical house and progressive house burst into the mainstream with EDM concerts proving to be a euphoric destination for the ears, the eyes, and the muscles. The genre is more explosive than it’s ever been, and the concerts are an experience you won’t want to miss. Find cheap concert tickets, discount concert tickets and last-minute concert tickets for your favorite artists at Ticket Liquidator, and get ready for a show you’ll always remember.
Electronic dance music is amid a renaissance with producers from around the world all learning the common language of tumultuous beats and exuberant synth riffs, causing new festivals on the dance circuit to spread like wildflowers. 2011 saw Miami’s Ultra Music Festival split off from the Winter Music Conference, expand from one to three days and create its own week of special events called Miami Music Week, not to mention its already impressive invasion of Ibiza, Korea and Brazil. Furthering its domination of the club festival circuit, the road to Ultrafest is now paved with the summer IDentity Festival, billed as the first ever electronic-ONLY touring festival. As if that weren’t enough (and it’s never enough,) rave-heads still have a host of festivals and special events to choose from, including Electric Daisy Carnival, NYC's Electric Zoo, DayGlow tour dates, Cosmic Opera, and the Detroit Electronic Music Festival.
For those who have never been to an EDM festival, it’s far more than the sum of individual concerts. A night at EDC or Electric Zoo is like crossing a retro-futuristic landscape, a dream one would have following a night spent in Tokyo, and a bash celebrating the culmination of all the kinetic energy mankind has ever created. Putting it into words only dilutes the reality. If you’re a fan of EDM, making it to one (or all) of the festivals is nothing short of a pilgrimage.
Many of the festival headliners share the bill on stages worldwide and have already seen their music proliferate into the mainstream. Avicii, Justice, Kaskade, Rusko, Steve Aoki, David Guetta, Deadmau5, Skrillex, Pretty Lights, Tiesto, Bassnectar, Above and Beyond and Armin van Buuren, are names that you may or may not be familiar with, but their catchy concoctions have probably already found their way into your ear canal. Catalyzing the exponential success of the electronic music scene is the use of sampling by Top 40 artists and knowing the value of giving their music some dance club affinity. Some of techno’s hottest DJs have also been tapped to produce records for titans in the industry, including Jay Z, Kanye West, Britney Spears, Usher, Katy Perry, Korn, Rihanna and many others. Even down-tempo, IDM and chillwave artists like Mercury Prize nominee James Blake, Postal Service collaborator DNTEL and Toro y Moi are getting mainstream attention that signals the rising popularity and staying power of electronic dance music.
