It took 40 years after Woodstock, but we've finally got the first stateside electronic music festival on our hands — a two-day zoo of styles (house, techno, trance, electro, indie) based on European summer festivals that plays host to more than 50 live acts and DJs on four stages. Today welcomes French DJ David Guetta, Lindstrom, ATB, plus DJ sets by James Murphy & Pat Mahoney, Al Doyle (dude from Hot Chip), Andy Butler (of Hercules & Love Affair), Audion (Matthew Dear), Junior Boys and more.
