Watch This: Above & Beyond enlist an elderly couple to push the button at EDC Vegas
To “push the button” at an Above & Beyond show is a rite of passage for any dance music reveler. It’s one of the most honorable, yet emotionally-driven moments in dance music as fans try their hand at creating attention-grabbing signs and flags that will ultimately win them the coveted opportunity to stand before their fellow fans on stage. And, of course, to drop the beat during the group’s timeless ballad, “Sun & Moon.”
In 2015, for example, Breaking Bad’s Bryan Cranston made headlines after pushing the button at Insomniac’s flagship festival, EDC Vegas.
This year, Above & Beyond pre-selected a young fan’s grandparents to “push the button” at EDC Vegas following a moving message. Read the fan’s message below, and watch the video above.
“I am currently going to attend Electric Daisy Carnival (EDC) Las Vegas with my brother and grandparents, and I’ll keep this short and sweet. My grandmother turns 75 years old Friday, June 17th, and my grandpa will be 84 years old during the time as well. I’m trying to give them the best experience that they can have while they are there at EDC, and would love for my grandparents to push the button. We have to keep the edm scene going for as long as we can and this would really help to prove that the age difference has no affect in a place like EDC, and everyone loves everyone.”
