Euphoria Music & Camping Festival went big in 2015 booking Pretty Lights to headline the event. Even though rain was in the forecast that didn’t stop people from showing up. There must have been 10,000 Euphorians having fun at the festival.

At about 11:30pm on Saturday Pretty Lights (AKA DJ/producer Derek Vincent Smith) took the stage.

DJ/producer Derek Vincent Smith sings along.

The Euphoria Tribe got a good dose of lighting, lasers, and video technology. Combine that with Pretty Lights doing his thing on a high fidelity sound system and you’ve got the Euphoria experience.

It was hard to avoid this tall VIP who was in the photo pit with a GoPro. I embraced it and came away satisfied.

Women cried. The bros were like, yeeeaah bruh… And, everyone everywhere seemed to be in good spirits—laughing, dancing, jumping, and enjoying.

It’s all good at Euphoria Music & Camping Festival 2015.

Derek took to the mic to let everyone know he was on another level. As spun as he may have been he delivered like a boss.
