Alright, so last night I had the pleasure of being able to catch the one and only Avicii for the first time and let me tell you his performance was unbelievable. While unfortunately for me I had to go to the show solo, the grandmaster himself made it a worthwhile venture. This was the second all ages EDM event i’ve been to and it certainly showed with the average age being around 18. This however did not affect my experience obviously as the turnout was great and crowd participation was at an all time high. The opener DJ Paige surprised me as he threw together an impressive set to get the crowd warmed up. Then came Avicii himself, absolutely blowing the crowd away with bass heavy house beats coupled with his new visuals and lightshow. It was an absolutely amazing set throwing together everything from Alesso, R3hab, Swedish House Mafia, and of course his own already known tracks along with some new bangers. Of course he had to drop the infamous “Levels” and coupled it with Gotye’s “Somebody That I Used To Know”, which if the crowd wasn’t already pumped to the max, they were now. Catch that around 11:50 below, followed by the ever popular, “Antidote” by Swedish House Mafia. Finally he ended with Cazzette &Ash’s ‘That Shit Cray’ Remix of “Ni**as in Paris”, which was absolutely epic and blew my fucking mind. Check that around 23:00 in the video. Definitely an all around amazing show put together by Midnite Society. I’m happy to see the influx of EDM into CT. Hopefully I can see some more shows around my school here at Sacred Heart. Rage on my friends.
