January 3rd, 2013
On December 31st, 2012 Prime Studios ended the year in style at the Denver Convention Center for Decadence. With a line up that included Wolfgang Gartner, Krewella, ATB, Mimosa, Flosstradamus, and Rudee we knew we were in for a treat. As soon as we arrived at the Convention Center we were able to get right inside and out of the cold. There was a side stage set up so while people were waiting for coat check and security they could start dancing. We dropped our coats at coat check then breezed through security in a matter of minutes.
We headed upstairs where the stages were set up a little before 8, just in time to catch the end of Jontron on the Global Dance stage. As we walked in there was a red carpet where you could stop and take picture with Discoman and Discogirl. The red carpet set off the high class feel for the night. As we walked farther into the Global Dance stage we saw the giant multi-colored chandelier hanger from the ceiling adding to the high class feel of the night. All around people were dressed in their New Year's best. We were surrounded by guys in suits and ladies in classy dresses.
At 8:15 Wolfgang Gartner got on stage and the crowd's energy started to grow. Throughout his entire set he got the crowed up and jumping to his hits. About half way through we popped over to the other side to check out Paul Basic on the Global Dub stage. There was just was many people at the Global Dub stage rocking out to some whomps. That side was decorated with a blanket of lights on the ceiling instead of a chandelier. We headed back to the Global Dance stage to finish out Wolfgang's epic set and listen to Ecoteck. All throughout Ecotek's set more and more people continued to pack into the Dance side waiting for Krewella to come on and play their set. As soon as 11:00 hit and they took the stage the crowd went wild. There was so much energy that the floor was shaking when everyone jumped. Krewella maintained the energy jumping on stage, all while singing their hit songs like Alive.
At midnight there was the countdown to 2013 and right at 12:00 huge white balloons dropped from the ceilings in both stages to ring in the New Year. Everyone was so happy, and it seemed as though everyone got some kind of New Years kiss. On the Dance stage ATB immediately got on the decks and led attendees into 2013 by playing his hit "Ecstasy" in an awesome remix while on the Dub stage Mimosa dropped the bass hard!!!
ATB, Rudee, and Zeds Dead did an amazing job maintaining the energy and closing out the night. Ms. Ez's performers added another level of awesomeness to the event. They included stilters, sexy Go-Go dances, and talented trick bikers that amused and awed the crowed all night. Overall there were lots of people bringing great vibes to 2013. The year has only just begun at if this is how it starts we can't wait to see what the other 364 days of 2013 will bring to this EDM community!
