House Music All Day: Day Trip’s 2nd Annual Festival Was a Lush, Glistening Oasis – EDM.com
House music is really good for you.
Researchers argue that the ideal human tempo is 120 BPM, which happens to be the sweet spot for house music. Born in the clubs of Chicago in the 1980s, it’s no surprise that the genre is now breaking into the mainstream. After Drake and Beyonce each released their own house-inspired records earlier this month, it looks like house music is the soundtrack of the summer.
Insomniac’s Day Trip is one of those brands that elevates house music. Established in 2018 with the simple mantra of “House Music All Day Long”, Day Trip is now known for its epic parties featuring aquariums, palm trees and house music from all walks of life.
Day Trip recently celebrated its 2nd annual festival on the sunny shores of Southern California. Taking place June 25-26 at LA County’s historic Queen Mary Waterfront Venue, the event saw FISHER, Chris Lorenzo, Lane 8, MK and many more tropical-themed stages adorned with disco balls.
Bordered by the Pacific Ocean, the place has been transformed into a lush and sparkling oasis.

The festival had two main stages, Deep End and High Tide, as well as a smaller stage, Shoreline. Each was decorated with disco balls of all shapes and sizes, casting radiant sparkles over the crowd.
While High Tide and Shoreline featured an assortment of numerous mirrored balls covering the frames, Deep End displayed a huge disco ball at least 10 feet in diameter.
Just like last year, Day Trip’s colorful fishbowl cocktails were a hit. “Did you really go on Day Trip if you didn’t have a fishbowl?” a Twitter user facetiously interrogates.
A video of the crowd piling up empty fish bowls, which you can watch below, has even gone near viral.
After years of wanting to hold a waterfront festival, this year’s venue was a huge win for Day Trip. Overall the event was a huge success. House leaders headed into the weekend hoping for groovy music, sunshine and good times – and Day Trip delivered.
Day Trip Festival is now set to land in Seattle on August 7. Find more information here.
