Tons of videos have surfaced since the year's barrage of stateside EDM fests, but only these two most recently released really cover the grounds of Chatahoochee Hills, Georgia in a cohesive way. As our electronic dance music correspondent, (EDM)ily knows, the first ever TomorrowWorld (the U.S. version of one of Europe's largest festivals, TomorrowLand) was, in a word, epic. Two "aftermovies" are now viewable here: the official video, and "Up All Night," produced by Dim Mak Records (DJ Steve Aoki's label). The former story happens in a "Book of Wisdom," taking its viewers to Dreamville, the campsite where concertgoers "dreamed" after the DJs were done. The latter gets a little grittier. (EDM)ily was all over TW, of course, and she can comment on which video more accurately illustrates the late September weekend. "TomorrowWorld was the most magical time of my life," she says. So the official video is a better representation of the festival? "Definitely. It really felt like a whole new world."
It all depends on your perspective, but as long as we're getting technical, editing out the POV puke and the $1,000 rock, paper, scissors match played between multimillionaire DJs from next year's TW coverage might be a little less embarrassing for the fans to watch, months after the party is over.
