Kaskade responds following cancelled EDC Las Vegas set

Well, what a weekend it was in Las Vegas, right? Electric Daisy Carnival rolled back into town and took ‘Sin City’ to a whole new level, as some of the world’s biggest, best, and boldest DJs pushed the boat out for the onlooking crowds. With the likes of Tiësto, Armin van Buuren, Salvatore Ganacci, Martin Garrix, and many more hot names taking to Nevada, you’d expect there to be nothing to complain about for anyone who got to attend the colossal festival. However, though it was out of their control, many were disappointed as weather conditions saw the temporary closure of some stages during Saturday night, which led to legendary DJ and producer Kaskade missing out on playing for the worldwide crowd. The American has now given his thoughts on the unfortunate, yet correct decision from EDC.

As winds picked up at around 40mph, the decision was made to close the kineticFIELD following Tiësto’s set on the very same stage, just before Kaskade’s performance. Unfortuantely, the performance could not be rearranged and the set was missed entirely. Though the American holds a residency at the new KAOS Las Vegas day and night club, the EDC faithful missed out on the opportunity to see him take to EDC’s main stage, armed with new music and fresh material. In a statement, Kaskade explained:

Sadly it was not meant to be. Weeks of preparation in finalizing new music….
That rush of adrenaline right before I go on…
The anticipation…

…I am sure it was not easy to close the stage but it was the right call. If I missed you out there I hope to see you again soon!

Safety first on this occasion, which proved to be the correct decision for the duration whilst the winds made kineticFIELD unsafe. However, you can be sure that Kaskade will be back and bigger than ever! Check out the full post below.
