Electric Daisy Carnival NYC: What You Need to Know – kinecticFIELD (Saturday)
EDC Saturday is by far the biggest and most star studded day of all. Although each stage will feature the best of their respective genres, the kineticFIELD will play host to some of the biggest names in the industry and likely draw massive crowds.

Who You Canâ€™t Miss
Basically every artist passing through the kineticFIELD is a must see, but if we had to choose…
Avicii – For young Tim Bergling, 2011 was one of the most historic years a DJ has ever had. By now, we all know ‘Levels’ will never die. Aside from that now classic anthem, the Swede’s latest release ‘Silhouettes’ and recent collaborations with Nicky Romero (Nicktim), David Guetta (Sunshine), and Madonna (Girl Gone Wild Remix), should highlight what should be the set of the weekend. Avicii is a bona fide worldwide super star and someone who is not to be missed, so expect EVERYONE to catch him closing out day 2.
Sebastian Ingrosso – Not to be overlooked without his fellow mafia mates by his side, this third of the globally acclaimed trio can still throw down a monster set. Also the head of Refune Records, his army of producers have delivered a couple of the key songs of 2012, so far. Besides ‘Calling,’ watch out for the festival-drops of ‘Million Voices‘ and ‘The Legend.’
Under the Radar Performer
Chris Lake – Newcomers to the scene may not recognize the name, but Chris Lake has been a pioneer in the EDM world for more than a decade. Although he is yet to release a track in 2012, the veteran Scotsman is still in the thick of the music, simultaneously running two labels, Rising Music and Rising Trax.
Michael Woods – Much like Chris Lake, for the untrained eye (ears?), Michael Woods is an easy name to overlook. The British producer has a storied history in the industry and delivered one of the absolutely best sets at EZF in September 2011 (relive that here).
Who You Can Pass On
Calvin Harris – No discredit here, but for us this may be the best opportunity to skip the main stage and check out another stage. With recent pop crossover hits like ‘We Found Love’ and ‘Feel So Close’, this will surely be one of the most crowded and Top 40 filled sets of the day. There is no doubt Harris will deliver an awesome performance, but if you are looking for a set true to more pure EDM, there will be better options out there.
What We Want to Hear
Alesso & Sebastian Ingrosso – Calling (Lose My Mind)
Chris Lake & Marco Lys – Cross The Line (Main Club Mix)
Mark Knight, Tiesto, Dino – Beautiful World (Michael Woods Remix)
