Das Energi Brings Two Days Of Fiery Electronic Music To SLC’s The Great Saltair [Photos]
Thousands of electronic music fans celebrated at Salt Lake City, UT’s The Great Saltair over the weekend for the annual Das Energi Festival.
Presented by V2 Presents, this year’s lineup represented some of the scene’s most iconic electronic acts, including headlining sets by Claude Vonstroke, Troyboi, Illenium, Ganja White Night, Kaskade, LSDream, and more over the course of the two days.
Fans were able to explore the historic venue’s landscape, set up for a full exploratory experience of music. Energi Field and Galactic Flats stages were hosted outside the scenic salt flats, featuring Das Energi’s pulsating bass, kaleidoscopic lights and lasers, and stimulating art installations. Venturing inside the venue, the Synergy Station dove attendees into the “Roots of the Rave,” which saw rotating sets of rave scene artists and showcased the culture of the venue. Complete with handmade costumed and curated, artful looks, V2 Performers enthralled and entranced attendees throughout the venue for a fully immersive experience.
