5 Reasons EDM Shows Are Better Than Rock Concerts
2. No one yells out their requests, sincere or ironic.
If you go to a show, there's a good chance there's one song in particular you really want to hear. I assume because you're reading this you're awesome, which means you're not one of those people who endlessly screams that request at the band until they play it. You also never ask for "Freebird" either, right?
I've never heard anyone at a real EDM show yell out requests. No one yells out for the big single. No one jokingly yells for "Levels." Everyone lets the DJ do his or her job, and we're all better for it. [Right, OG Bobby Trill? -- ed.]
1. The people at EDM shows are really friendly.
"Peace, love, unity and respect" is totally cheesy, and yet I understand why so many dance fans take it to heart. I'd say roughly 93 percent of the people at these shows are super-friendly and welcoming; the rest are either reviewing the show or getting in to trouble because they can't hold their alcohol.
At most rock shows, it seems that everyone is spending their time listening to the music and silently cursing the people who are ruining the show for them. At most EDM shows people just want to give each other high fives and make sure everyone is having a good time. Totally cheesy? Perhaps, but extremely charming.
