10 THINGS TO KNOW BEFORE YOUR FIRST EDC
The inaugural EC Las Vegas is just around the corner, and with the rescheduled date this year, it will take place in mid-October for the first time. It’s unlike anything else to be under the Electric Sky, and whether you’re new to the scene or not, you may rest confident in the knowledge that the event will be a warm, inclusive environment that will make you feel at ease regardless of who you are. Here are ten things to consider before attending your first EDC Las Vegas from a veteran raver.
1. WEAR COMFY SHOES
EDC is a marathon, not a sprint. Wearing comfortable shoes will allow you to see more of the event and dance all night beneath the Electric Sky without having to worry about blisters or tired feet. If you’re wearing new shoes to an event, try breaking them in for a few weeks before hand. Choose comfy shoes that are also fashionable. Platforms or sneakers are excellent for walking and standing throughout the day. Don’t be scared to take a rest and sit for a while, but keep in mind that if your feet are hurting at the Speedway, you’ll be too far away from any store to get new shoes.
2. DON’T LOSE YOUR WRISTBAND
Treat your wristband like gold. Don’t put it on too soon, and make sure you have it with you when you come to Las Vegas for EDC week. It’s thrilling to receive your ticket in the mail, but putting it on too soon may result in you breaking it before the festival even begins.
3. BUDGET FOR A RIDE BACK TO VEGAS
Do you plan to stay on or near the Strip? Many veterans know the agony of waiting for a shuttle at the end of the night (or morning) to get back to their hotel. Instead of taking the shuttle, rent a taxi or Uber/Lyft back to your hotel. The costs vary, but if you carpool with a few of your buddies, the price will go down. Although it’s possible to avoid the Las Vegas Strip entirely, doing so may save time. For example, downtown Las Vegas, where the shuttle lines are considerably shorter, is a good alternative.
4. DRESS COMFORTABLY
Once again, EDC is a long-term event. You’ll be outdoors for hours on end, far from your hotel. Consider how you can stay cool and fashionable while staying comfy when creating your EDC outfits. There’s nothing worse than being uncomfortable for the whole night at a music festival, so shop ahead for clothes that are nice and comfy, and double-check the temperature before you finalize your appearance to ensure you’re not too cold or too hot.

5. PLAN YOUR MEET UP SPOT IN ADVANCE
The Speedway’s cell service is already bad, but when you add thousands of people all attempting to stay in touch with their pals or upload to Instagram, the connection might be even more tenuous. Make sure you don’t need your phone when you go to the event by preparing ahead of time. Send any vital information and make any essential calls before leaving for the event, and arrange meetups ahead of time by selecting a time and location within the park.
6. STAY HEALTHY AND HYDRATED
Dancing all night in the desert will deplete your energy reserves. At the festival, make sure to drink a lot of water and eat a healthy meal. Stay hydrated while you’re at the festival and while you recuperate in your hotel the next day by eating a nutritious dinner and drinking lots of water. TIt’s essential to take care of yourself while on vacation, and it’ll make a huge difference between having a good time the whole festival and becoming burnt out and weary at the end—or worse, getting sick!
7. ONLY BRING THE CARDS YOU REALLY NEED
Only bring the ones you truly need to the festival if you have multiple bank cards or credit cards. If you lose your bag or wallet and have everything in it, this can be a catastrophe because you’ll have to go the rest of the weekend depending on Venmo payments to friends whenever you want to buy anything. Instead of taking your entire wallet, take one form of payment and your identification with you while leaving the rest in the hotel safe.
8. PACK A FESTIVAL BAG
There are plenty of blogs full of suggestions for what to bring when you go to EDC in Las Vegas, but be sure to bring a festival bottle or a hydration pack with you throughout the event so that you’re never caught off guard. We recommend bringing a face mask, earplugs, unwrapped chapstick, and gum, as well as some extra toilet paper just in case.It’s also a good idea to bring sunglasses with you on your return trip to the hotel once the sun rises.
9. MAKE THE SCHEDULE YOUR LOCK SCREEN
Make it your lock screen on your phone to have access to the entire weekend’s program all weekend long. We recommend focusing on sets you don’t want to miss, but Encourage exploring new areas. You may still enjoy the thrill of discovery and musical campsites at EDC Las Vegas. With so much to explore, it’s easy to get distracted by all that is going on during the Electric Daisy Carnival weekend – and you don’t want to miss any of it! Make sure to discover sets from artists you wouldn’t normally listen to. You may just fall in love with some new music!
10. MAKE SURE YOUR PHONE IS FULLY CHARGED BEFORE LEAVING

What Louis Tomlinson Thinks About A Possible One Direction Reunion
After breaking out in the media with hits such as “What Makes You Beautiful,” “Story Of My Life,” “Best Song Ever,” and more, 1D took the world by storm (via Digital Spy). However, in 2015, the boy band shocked their devoted followers when they announced that they will be taking a break. According to E! News, the group shocked their fans by announcing that they would go on hiatus in 2015. After Zayn Malik announced his intentions to leave 1D, the band decided to disband in order to focus on their own solo projects.
“They are great friends and fully support one another,” a source said of the group. “They are very aware that they are able to work on their own stuff as well as remain together. This is an exciting time for them creatively and as a group.” However, it appears that at least one member of One Direction was in opposition to the split.
Before the break, Tomlinson told The Guardian that he was feeling optimistic about the band. “In the last year of One Direction, I was probably the most confident I ever was,” he said. “And then it was: ‘OK, hiatus!'” He acknowledged that he struggled against it, but ultimately lost.
Since then, One Direction has yet to record any new music. The group’s future, on the other hand, appears promising.
Did Louis Tomlinson hint at a possible 1D reunion?
According to Cheat Sheet, since announcing the group’s hiatus in 2015, One Direction members have been working on their solo careers and other activities like beginning families. Louis Tomlinson recently spoke out about a possible reunion and left fans wondering if there could be hope for the group in the future, despite Harry Styles, Niall Horan, Liam Payne, and Zayn Malik all remaining quiet on the subject of a reunion.
In 2021, Tomlinson took part in the WIRED Google autocomplete challenge, answering queries about himself that fans most search for on the internet. He went through his tattoos, color of his hair, eye color, and more before finally getting to One Direction. When asked about the group he replied, “Good time in my life. Hopefully, we come back.” The return of an iconic logo inspired fans to believe that perhaps, just maybe, the band was reuniting. Fans also noticed that when Tomlinson referred to 1D as the band he “is” in before correcting himself to say “was,” he made a minor slip of the tongue.
Could Harry’s comments be hinting at a One Direction reunion? Despite the fact that it appears improbable for now, fans have not stopped hoping for the group to reunite and create new music in the future.
This Is How Elton John Got His Name
Elton John is one of the most famous names in modern music, with his distinctive appearance and voice, as well as instantly-recognizable songs. It’s difficult to find many individuals who haven’t heard Elton John, better known as “The Rocketman,” thanks to his signature song of the same name. In fact, the Elton John biopic film released in 2019 was called “Rocketman” because the word is so easily identifiable with John (via IMDb).
However, prior to his career as “The Rocketman” and even before he earned the moniker “Elton John,” he was known by a different name. He actually went by his birth name, Reginald Kenneth Dwight, and dropped out of school at the age of 17 to pursue a music career (via Biography). He eventually changed his name because he was becoming more successful, however even the film documenting his life didn’t get his change of name right.
Elton John chose a new name on the fly
The film “Rocketman” tells audiences that Reginald Kenneth Dwight changed his name to Elton John after meeting John Lennon, the famous Beatle. Lennon, on the other hand, had nothing to do with how Elton John got his name. Another singer known as John also existed.
According to a 1991 interview with Rowan Atkinson, Reginald Dwight was a member of the group “Bluesology” and decided to go it alone, hence the name change. He said he chose the name Elton after a saxophone player in the group because he wanted to branch out on his own. In a 1990 interview conducted after the release of his CD box set entitled “To Be Continued…”
“I was in Bluesology, and we were coming back from a Long John Baldry gig somewhere, and we got a bus from London airport to London and someone said, ‘We’ve made it now, so what are you going to call yourself?'” John said (via The Wrap). “The saxophone player in the band was called Elton Dean, a very good jazz sax player, and the only other Elton I could think of was Elton Hayes, who recorded the song ‘The Owl and the Pussycat.’ So I took ‘Elton’ from Elton Dean and ‘John’ from Long John Baldry. I wanted to choose a name that nobody had, and it was as quick as that.”
Fans Think Britney Spears Is Pregnant According to Them
When Britney Spears updated her Instagram Story, she may have started a rumour about herself. The singer and her partner Sam Asghari are relaxing on Maui, Hawaii at present. While posing for photos with her adoring public, Spears revealed that lately she hasn’t felt too well (via Fox News).
“I think I have a small bug … the only thing that is similar to this feeling is when I was pregnant…” the star wrote as a caption to the clip. She continued, “it’s the nausea that is the worst … It’s like I can’t wake up so I go to the gym trying to wake my system up !!!”
Spears continued her post by writing, “It’s like clockwork … I break my first sweat then I go to the bathroom and throw up… it’s absolutely horrible but then I stay at the gym because I don’t want to go home and lay sick in bed …. I keep going and [at] night I go dancing and my system starts to get clarity … Dude … this has been going on for a month and if someone has this you’re not alone !!!”
Following her return to Instagram, fans immediately started speculating about whether she is expecting again, with one user writing, “She’s pregnant again.” “Awwww baby on the way.” “Morning sickness my dear,” echoed another fan.
More Spears fans were reacting to her tweet about pregnancy on Twitter.
She has confirmed that she wants to conceive again
The celebrity’s message about being sick for a month caused Twitter to go wild. “Britney girl…your nausea has lasted for a month and the only other time you felt like this was when you were pregnant???? who’s gonna tell her?” asked one fan. “I think it’s time to get a pregnancy test PLS,” someone else tweeted.
The rumor mill was still in operation, with another individual adding, “Girls Britney is pregnant. Throwing up every morning for a month…. And she even said herself she’s never felt like this except when pregnant….”
Although she enjoyed her first title, Spears is still determined to have another kid. As the whole world heard during her conservatorship hearing as she tried to terminate it, Spears, who is a mother of two adolescent sons, wants to conceive another child. “I want to be able to get married and have a baby. I was told right now in the conservatorship, I’m not able to get married or have a baby. I have an IUD inside of myself right now so I don’t get pregnant,” the pop star testified. “I wanted to take the IUD out so I could start trying to have another baby. But this so-called team won’t let me go to the doctor to take it out because they don’t want me to have any more children,” she said (via Billboard).
