There are two things we here at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa discovered this Labor Day that really go together.
Namely the music of Tiesto and our outdoor venue Festival Park.
This Labor Day Weekend, Tiesto returned to Festival Bark for a packed daytime concert that rocked the Atlantic City bay-side like never before and created a bit of EDM heaven in the sun, check out the video below to see the party.
Tiesto took a break from a long late summer series of gigs in Vegas to play Borgata’s Festival Park.
And he’s become a bit of a sage (the smart guy, not the spice) about EDM and its beginnings, of which he, of course, was a huge part.
“In the ’90s/early 2000s, there was this electronica explosion that captivated the world, and there was a nice presence in the USA,” Tiësto tells the Miami New Times. “But looking back, I’d be lying if I said I thought it would get this big.”
Surprised it exploded perhaps, but not that it found its audience here in the states.
“Young people always want to dance and have fun — there’s no better type of music for them. The potential for dance music was always there.”
“I’m having the time of my life, and I think that translates into my sets, he says.
And to anyone who thinks EDM is a bubble about to burst: “I’d take whomever felt that way and drop them off at EDC Las Vegas and see if they change their mind.”
Or, check out what happened live at Borgata Labor Day Weekend at Borgata’s Festival Park.
