To say the least, 2018 was a huge year for EDM, especially festival music. EDM festivals are continiuing to grow at an alarming rate, proving the nay-sayers wrong that EDM is just a trend. Sets are getting gnarlier, crazier, and even more bass. Production is getting better and better and the improvements are not going to stop anytime soon. I think it is safe to say, EDM festivals are here to stay.
The major EDM festivals in the United States are Ultra Miami, EDC Las Vegas, Electric Forest, Camp Bisco, and EDC Orlando. There are several more but these are the main ones today. And in 2018, they did it BIG! Here are the Top 10 Festival sets from 2018:
