As for the electronic/techno/drum&bass/edm/trance/etc stuff you hear pumping out all over the playa, which has become my favourite music as of late August 2008, actually isn't "mainstream". You guys talking about "mainstream" as though the stuff on the playa is such? It's not, trust me. If you listen to mainstream you'll hear Nickelback (hometown boys and I happen to like them), Rihanna, Madonna, Justin Timberlake, and Britney Spears. The stuff you hear on playa is amazing because it's NOT mainstream. It comes from the clubs of the 70s, 80s, and 90s and has been updated and enhanced for the 00s. I found myself enjoying it like I'd never before. The lights, the colours, the open sky, the solid playa, everything went really well with it, for me. Hearing anything mainstream, including most oldies, felt really wrong. It was mainstream I was escaping from and I didn't want to bring it on playa.
I'm 33, and 2008 was my first. I'll turn 34 on the drive down to Black Rock City in 2009.
