Over the weekend, the grandiose Electric Daisy Carnival made its way to Mexico City to what became the largest dance music festival in Mexico's history! 80,000 EDM lovers filled the Autodromo (speedway) Hermanos Rodriguez over their holiday weekend from Saturday to Sunday.

From babies, kids, teenagers, to parents and even old school techno loving grandpas - everyone wanted to experience what El Carnaval de la Margarita Eléctrica (EDC) is all about.
