Day One Revisited
Day one of Electric Forest reminded me of jumping into a lake feet first, you don’t know what the water temperature is going to be, only you know it’s going to be awesome. When Leksy and I first got to the festival, we were taken back at the sheer size of the festival grounds and by the absolutely amazing food that lined the venue’s perimeter. After getting a big bowl of Thai food, we decided to head out to watch Borgore wreck the crowd. I have seen Borgore before, but not like this, at his stage I witnessed several thousand people jumping around, dancing, yelling and primarily smiling, as he dropped his brand new tracks. Just look at the pictures, and you’ll understand.
After the sonic destruction left behind by Borgore’s set, we settled down for a bit and checked out some of the vendors. One of which, Stolen Sunday, contained very unique clothing, which lead to a purchase by Leksy. After scoping out some other vendors as I bought some pizza, and quickly headed back to the Ranch Stage to prepare for Wolfgang Gartner, an artist I have never seen live. When he stepped up onto the stage, the crowd went wild. He began his set with The Champ, if I’m not mistaken, and then it began. One of the unforgettable set’s of Electric Forest, at one of the most unique settings in the world. Below is one of his new remixes, along with the photos Leksy and I took from Day 1.
Some Wolfgang Gartner to listen to as you browse the photos.
