It seems that recently the mass media has been on a personal vendetta against our electronic music scene. After every major event you can almost guarantee that there will be an article depicting all the terrible things that happened at that event (EDC LV for example). Obviously, this attack on our music scene seems unfair because no other major concerts, that host different genres, are under this type of scrutiny (look up what happened in Pittsburgh after a Luke Bryan concert). Although the negative press is inherently unfair, the response on the part of EDM concert organizers and promoters has been unbelievably positive and something to be highlighted.
On July 3rd
, The 3D Experience w/ Sultan and Ned Shepard will be taking place in NYC at Stage 48. Before we dive into how this partying experience is going to be safer and better, it would be a disservice to not mention how phenomenal Sultan and Ned Shepard are. This DJing duo has been wrecking the scene for a very long time. With their infectious energy and positive vibes, there is no doubt you will be thoroughly impressed with their set. (I have seen these guys twice and both times were phenomenal).
Just get a taste of what I mean with the video below:
The major organizers of this event have taken it upon themselves to promote a safe and fun environment and these are the types of things that should make us proud of our scene. Here is a personal blurb from the event organizers and one of the main sponsors Detox Water:
"It's an unfortunate reality that accidents happen in today's world. Festival related incidents cast a dark cloud across what are supposed to be a positive and extraordinary musical experiences. While such tragic occurrences are still very rare in nature, we here at Electric Candy Land Events, Epic Entertainment and Area Event are constantly looking for ways to support and promote partying safe.
With that in mind, we are pleased to present our exclusive partnership with Detox Water. Detox Water harnesses the natural cleansing properties of aloe vera in a drink that delivers the antioxidant, anti-aging, anti-inflammatory, immune-stimulating and gastro-protective benefits for which aloe vera is well known.

Dancing for hours on end at your favorite EDM shows and festivals is a quick way to become dangerously de-hydrated. Proper hydration is vital to maintaining your energy and wits as you move and groove. Detox Water is under 40 calories and will keep you feeling fresh until the wee hours of the morning. So the only question that remains is.... What better way to provide re-fueling and refreshing energy to your body other than with Detox Water? "
As events continue to get bigger and happen with more frequency, hopefully we will begin to see more and more of these types of partnerships in the future. These partnerships will allow us to continue having the shows that we love without the scrutiny that we have been experiencing and we all know that is something we really need!
Start your July 4th weekend off with a Bang!
