Sam Feldt - Ever After Music Festival

Sam Feldt


Ever After Music Festival, the new EDM music event, brought a fantasy fairy tale experience and some of the top DJs and artists in the world. Talk And Co hit the two-day festival. It was headlined by Zeds Dead and Diplo and included performances by Tommy Trash, Sam Feldt, Grandtheft, Syndey Blu, Benny Benassi, and Toronto’s very own Manzone and Strong. It was the first year for Ever After Music Festival. It was held on the weekend of May 30 – 31, in Kitchener, Ontario, at Bingemans Big Splash Waterpark.

Flosstradamus - Ever After Music Festival



Thousands of people braved the cold and wet weather to be there. The event included top-rate performances, great visual and sound effects, and a ferris wheel. Some of the highlights: sets from Flostradamus, Sam Feldt, Diplo, Woka Flocka, Keys N Krates, and DJ Snake. On Saturday, Sam Feldt dominated the crowd by playing favorites such as Show Me Love, Rihanna’s Four Five Seconds, M83’s Midnight City, and Sunlight by The Magician feat. Years & Years. DJ Snake, the Grammy-nominated French producer and artist, didn’t disappoint, playing an unforgettable bass-heavy set. The second day brought Caked Up. Special guest Waka Flocka Flame kept everyone energized, jumping in and joining the crowd.

Diplo, the crowd favorite, closed off the second night of the festival. He played a mix of his original songs, remixes of hip hop tracks such as Drake’s Know Yourself, and popular hits such as Where Are Ü Now and Lean On as part of his collaborative projects with Jack Ü and Major Lazer respectively. A Diplo show wouldn’t be complete without some ass shaking, and girls who could bust a move were invited on stage to twerk.

Despite the heavy rain and thunderstorms, the party went on all weekend. From black garbage bags to colourful ponchos, festival-goers came prepared to dance to the sounds of dubstep, house, and drum and bass. While there were some cringeworthy moments, such as Rezz announcing to the crowd, “I want to see all the innocent girls turn to fucking whores right now,” there were plenty of memorable sets to be enjoyed by all. As the festival drew to a close on Sunday night, the sky cleared and the crowd sang along to Whitney Houston’s I Will Always Love You, ending the festival on a high note. Overall, the event was very well organized, and the waterpark was the perfect venue for an outdoor festival this size. The Ever After Music Festival delivered on exactly what it promised.
