2012 was the year that the EDM scene completely blew up in Los Angeles. You would think that moving Electric Daisy Carnival to Las Vegas would put a significant dent in it, but instead it has helped it mature. A few years ago, Los Angeles was building a huge festival scene for EDM artists, but the clubs were the ones suffering. Finding decent 21 and up clubs in LA with the top talent in dance music was a difficult venture until 2012. One of the venues that changed all of that last year was Exchange LA and their weekly Insomniac sponsored events. While some venues have started to slow down this Spring on the EDM scene (where have you gone Greystone Manor?), Exchange keeps on going. Bringing in Ferry Corsten for Awakening next Friday shows the world that Exchange takes their place in the Los Angeles EDM scene seriously. We preview the best EDM show in LA this Spring here.
All the talk in town is about the upcoming Swedish House Mafia shows at a huge park across from Dodgers Stadium. If the idea of an 18 and up EDM show at an outside park in that part of town doesn’t sound like your idea of a good time, you are not alone. Staples center has also been busy booking EDM acts, with sold out Kaskade shows last year and an upcoming Tiesto performance. For a single act, trading the club experience for an NBA arena is never a good thing. So what’s the best trance show in LA this Spring? It’s the Dutch producer and DJ behind some of the deepest and most iconic trance tunes of the last decade touching down in downtown for a club show. You can still get tickets to see Ferry Corsten next Friday at Exchange LA. This show won’t be the “FULL ON” show concept where Ferry DJs from inside a massive 3D cube, but it will be another night of deep trance tunes and classics such as the iconic “Punk” and the new burner “Loops & Tings” that he produced with Markus Schulz. This is the best EDM show that has been announced in LA this Spring, and you still have a chance to be there.
