Orlando 2023: A Mesmerizing Journey into the World of Electronic Dance Music and Joyful Energy

By Maha Chaudhry

If you have ever experienced EDC (Electronic Daisy Carnival), then you know what a vibrant and magical experience it can be, and 2023 was no exception. Last month, artists and DJs from all over the globe graced the stage with beats that were sure to get you dancing and celebrating the moment. 

The three-day event, first debuting in Orlando in 2011, has been a hit ever since. Hundreds, if, not thousands of attendees nationwide make their way to Orlando every year in November to attend a festival full of electronic dance music, illuminous grounds, a carnival ambiance and joyful energy. 

The lineup varies every year, but one thing is for certain, you will likely find yourself at the right place, at the right time. With over five stages to choose from, Tinker Field, the venue that hosts EDC every year, gives you plenty room and options to roam around and find your exact spot of preference. 

While you’re on festival grounds, you can indulge in a variety of flavors, shine under the neon lights, and ride through joys of a Ferris wheel and other nostalgia. The attention to detail is immaculate from the stages to walkways and everything in between. For an enhanced experience you can upgrade to VIP, there you have more exclusive options for food and beverages as well as the option of a Skydeck and more. 

Some of the hits from 2023 in the official EDC Orlando 2023 playlist include:

Atmosphere – FISHER, Kita Alexander

Where You Are – Zedd Remix, John Summit, Hayla, Zedd

Brighter – Kaskade, Emmit Fenn

Bad Memories– Meduza, James Carter, Elley Duhe, FAST Boy

The Kinetic Stage, the main stage, presented headliners such as ALOK, Deadmau5, Armin Van Buuren and the Chainsmokers just to name a few. For every fan in the audience, that was a treat come true. From the “OGs” of edm to the up and coming, there was a set for everyone. 

Though the festival has showcased in Orlando for over 12 years now, every year you can expect to find something different and exciting. The festival itself symbolizes inclusivity, where all are welcome and loved. So many unique elements bring EDC to life – The stages, the performers, the art, rides,  the people, and the pyrotechnics. According to the EDC experience, “Imagination and positive energy are the currency of this place.” 

Stay tuned for next year, the official dates are November 8, 9 and 10, 2024.
