The cellphone service struggle is known all too well by today’s festival attendees. It has been nearly impossible to use cell service or WiFi to reliably communicate amongst the throngs of fellow music lovers all trying to access the same network. Luckily, Open Garden answered our prayers earlier this year with FireChat, the free crowd messaging application that allows users to instantly send messages and photos to others who are nearby, even if no cellular service or internet connection is available.

Starting today, users will also be able to follow their favorite people on FireChat, see when they come online, and instantly join them in massive live chatrooms capable of handling thousands of unique participants. We at Your EDM are proud to announce that we have partnered with FireChat, and you can follow us and join our conversations by grabbing the application from the App Store or Google Play and joining our official FireChat chatroom, “Your EDM Family“. We can’t wait for EDC Las Vegas 2015, where FireChat will make group communication possible amongst our entire family group without the need for an active cell network.

Make sure to download the app and follow @YourEDM for future festival meet up information and more!
