Follow the Crowd

RECEIVED Thu., April 20, 2017

Dear Editor,
    I met the author of "Euphoria’s Urban Upsurge" [Daily Music, April 10] in the VIP section on Friday of Euphoria Fest and enjoyed the conversation very much. We talked about what I thought the festival had to offer in the way of talent, and how Euphoria has managed to bring in some very high-quality headliners in EDM and the fest-related hip-hop, trip-hop, reggae, and rap mix. It's gotten a bit bigger and better every year, but it's far from blown out.
    So why would Kevin only write about what he didn't like? Dude, if you went to Euphoria to see hip-hop and rap, you wasted your time. Hip-hop and rap have their place at Euphoria, and if you understood what Euphoria is about you would have had a much better time. Alesso? Zeds Dead? Oliver Heldens? Frikin Pretty Lights Live?! No …? Disco Biscuits, Dumpstaphunk, Papadosio? You obviously didn't know what you were doing. Next time, follow the people.
