Lights All Night Dallas Event Review

Lights All Night Dallas Event Review

At the end of last year, I attended my first EDM festival; Dallas’s famous Lights All Night. I had a very good time closing out 2016 and ringing in 2017 at the event.

Not only was this my first EDM festival, this was my first musical festival where I would be working as a member of the press. I must admit, it was a bit nerve wracking. I was scheduled to interview multiple artists, and the fact that they were up-and-comers made it all the more stressful. I had spent the 24 hours prior to the festival’s opening night memorizing the questions I had drafted for them, but my mind was also filled with every possible anxious thought.

“What if I stutter a lot?” I asked myself. “What if I forget my questions? What if they become super famous and write about this interview in their tell-all books?”

I was later proven that I really had nothing to worry about.

The first artist I interviewed was PLS&TY. His team was very professional, punctual, and well-prepared to answer the questions. I may have uttered a few awkward pauses and stutters, but overall, it went very well for my first interview with a musician.


The rest of the interviews went rather smoothly, plus, I got some of the artists to give shout outs to Mix via social media.

The venue itself was fairly easy to get around. Luckily, since I was in VIP, I didn’t have to fight my way through crowds and long lines.

Everyone was dressed in their wildest clothes, including a couple who was wearing matching Deadmau5 heads.mix-247-edm-lights-all-night

Personally, I enjoyed sets from Dropshop, San Holo, and A$AP Ferg, but perhaps the highlight of the festival was up-and-comer, Kittens.

Kittens is one of the very few female DJs in the realm of EDM, specifically noting on her website, “It takes an equal part talent, finesse, sass, and balls for a woman to get the right kind of attention in the ever competitive industry of young DJs and producers”. Her set largely consisted of trap, hip-hop, and dubstep, which was the perfect way to open up and set the mood for night two.

Overall, I had a very positive experience at Lights All Night. I learned that ravers are the friendliest people one will ever meet. I learned the dos and don’ts of artist interviews, and I am looking forward to using what I’ve learned in my experience and applying that to delivering all sorts of cool event coverage to Mixnation.
