The Isla Del Sol Fest plunges show-goers into a weekend of electronic dance music, cold beer, waves, and beach sand. On Saturday, Dutch trance mastermind Armin van Buuren takes the stage at Schlitterbahn Waterpark, showing how he earned a top-three position in DJ Magazine’s Top 100 poll for eight consecutive years with effortlessly melodic remixes. Ryan Raddon assumes his alter ego on Sunday, stepping into the role of Kaskade, winner of DJ Times's Best American DJ 2011 poll. Called the "new face of electronic dance music" by the New York Times, Kaskade obliterates self-consciousness with skull-rattling bass, freeing legs and arms to flail freely to the beat. Swedish electrohouse duo Dada Life lives up to its handle at Monday's VIP-only party, transforming turntables into anarchic noise machines that drop deliriously fuzzy beats to the dismay of stuffily reactionary metronomes. As VIPs lose themselves in the rhythm, waves lick the sandy shores of Clayton’s Resort beach, and a pool and sundeck enable crowds to test their dance steps in multiple terrains.
