The stars shone in the sky and his eyes alike.
David Guetta recalls that night as if were last night. “I remember everything it about,” the superstar DJ-producer says. “No, really.”
June 25, 2011.
It was the first night of Electric Daisy Carnival’s first time in Las Vegas. Guetta, one of EDM’s biggest acts then and now, was there.
“I do many shows, so I don’t remember all of them, but this one was very, very special,” the 51-year-old Parisian says. “I remember the feeling of being completely blown away by the energy and the size of the event. I remember hitting some golf cart and going on a race with my friends. We had a lot of fun at that show.”
It’s been eight years, but Guetta is finally making his EDC return this weekend, one of more than 250 acts soundtracking the dusk-till-dawn electronic dance music fantasia to the delight of more than 450,000 smiley faces at Las Vegas Motor Speedway over three days.
