Valley View Casino Center
San Diego-based EDM promotion company LED took over California with three events in three different cities this Presidents Day weekend on Sunday February 16th. Celebrating their third anniversary in San Diego at the Valley View Casino Center, they also simultaneously launched their new Finger Lickin' party in LA at the Shrine Expo Hall and in San Francisco at Fort Mason.
Featuring their first venture in San Francisco, LED kicked off festival season in full force with artist like Laidback Luke, Showtek, Adventure Club, Ummet Ozcan, Firebeatz, Chuckie, TJR and more playing their sold out multiple events. It was as if all 20,000 of us were united for an evening of bangers and big room EDM in all different parts of California. Here's what caught our attention as we danced our asses off for seven hours straight in classy San Diego.

Not sure what it is about LED events, but the crowd has always been one of our favorites. It was packed at the Valley View Casino Center and we say this in a good way. From the thousands of people raging on the floor to the bleachers, the arena was filled with an illustrious array of neon colors as everyone shook their glow sticks in the air. The crowd was polite, appreciative of one another, and excited to get their rave on. The DJs feed off this incredible energy and went hard with their sets over the booming sound system.

We don't care what you think, but rave fashion is here to stay just like in any other scene and this weekend San Diego delivered. None of that hipster shit, we saw kandi sleeves, fluffies, masks, unicorns and everything in between. Dressing up is part of the fun of attending these EDM events in the first place, and we indulged in the fact that no one held back. From t-shirts donning their favorite artist logo to rave bras spelling out names, the costumes definitely added to the energy and overall experience of the event.
