It was the first show of its kind on Brown’s Island and the first top shelf EDM artist to play outdoors in Richmond ever.
It was the first show of its kind on Brown’s Island and the first top shelf EDM artist to play outdoors in Richmond ever. With close to 5000 people in attendance (paying $50-65 a pop) you get the feeling its not going to be the last time our fair city quakes from a bass drop.
So is our city ready for the EDM wave that has already overrun parts of the nation?
Are we ready for more of this? Here’s what local social media warriors had to say about the event:

Wanna feel old? Search twitter for local tweets about Skrillex. Fan tweets mixed in with most of RVA commenting on noise level #getoffmylawn

Melissa Chase sums up the other half …
@jackgoesforth says the 30 year old who just complained that Skrillex's music "is too damn loud!" before muttering "get off my damn lawn"…

Having to explain to the older people …
Skrillex is playing Brown's Island tonight!!! For those who don't know, Skrillex is like the "Richmond Folk Festival" of EDM
