hits it on the nail here. Really describes the culture of electro music well!:
“It’s about the experience…Today’s kids know everybody. The era of going to the show and standing in the corner alone, knowing only the band, are done. Via social networks, every kid in your town knows every other one. And these festivals are giant networking parties, where they get to mingle and have a good time. And it’s all about the good time. Sure, the music is an element of the mix, but if you could go to the show with only ten of your best bros, you wouldn’t. Nobody wants a legendary DJ to play for ten people like the oldsters hire Elton and the classic rockers for privates, that’s a dead scene.
They want to be party with thousands, they want to feel the energy, electronic music is not about being exclusive, but inclusive!…what’s important is the scene. The inclusivity referenced above. Now performer and audience are in it together
