It started off as a simple enough request, “Will you come to the Odesza concert with me? They’re my favorite EDM DJs.”

Another staple of the EDM / rave scene seems to be glittery makeup or glittery skin. This one comes in multiple colors to match whatever color scheme you're going for.
Lastly, due to the clear bag policy, I highly recommend this bag that will stay close to you all night.
