VELD Music Festival 2014 08/03/14 - Downsview Park - Toronto, ON, CAN
Coming into this festival, I had no clue what to expect. I had only ever attended one true electronic dance music show before in 2013, but I had never attended a festival, let alone shot or reviewed one. Coming from the more "Warped Tour" scene, and even just being an avid concert goer, there were a lot of similarities, but there were also a lot of big differences, the crowd for example was surprisingly a lot more friendly, (sometimes a little too much) and this was the first event where I had heard the same song played more than once, by different artists nonetheless, although to give them credit they were mostly original remixed versions. It's very easy to get caught up in the excitement and energy of VELD, and I have learned why it is these events draw in such a large crowd.
