Who You Can’t Miss
Given that this is the main stage, the line-up is particularly strong, but…if we were forced with a gun to our heads to make some suggestions, they are…
Dirty South – If you haven’t yet heard Dirty South’s remix of Miike Snow’s track ‘Devil’s Work,’ you probably haven’t been listening to the radio, going to shows or seen the internet since February, when Dragan debuted the track at his Pacha show. His sound may be changing slightly from his signature ‘Phazing’ days, but he is still a pro on production and the young talents he is cultivating, including Michael Brun, are providing solid fodder for his sets.

Bassnectar – Right smack in the middle of his 30+ stop VAVA VOOM tour, Bassnectar aka Lorin Ashton is taking the show to the main stage of Electric Daisy Carnival New York. If you can you should definitely stop by his set. If it’s anything like the shows he’s been putting on over the past month, his track list is absolutely incredible featuring both new tunes off his VAVA VOOM album and classics such as ‘Wildstyle Method’. Plus, he’s got a really ridiculous light show to go with it!

Under the Radar Performer
Sunnery James & Ryan Marciano – This Dutch pair are the dynamic male duo of dance music. They never fail to deliver sexy, progressive beats that fall on another level from other straight floor banging DJs. Their remix of TiÃ«sto’s beloved ‘Lethal Industry’ is pretty breath taking in its deep buildup and delivery. Expect the same from every track Sunnery & Ryan deign to include in their set.

Who You Can Pass On
Afrojack – This may sound like blasphemy, but Afrojack’s peformance at Ultra was lackluster and not that crowd pleasing. Instead of putting up a track list of favorites, which is what a short set requires, he offered up 10 new tracks. For diehards this works, but a large festival setting is probably not the best testing ground for shiny new unheard tunes. Save that for the intimate clubs where everyone already loves you. Maybe Paris Hilton is messing with his performances? She does tend to bop and twirl about in sunglasses during his sets…pure distraction!
