EDM music festival Something Wonderful was held the weekend of April 23 at Texas Motor Speedway, and it could be described as nothing less than something truly wonderful.

Disco Donnie gave everyone exactly what they were looking for: a great show in a location where weather problems wasn’t an issue. This weekend could have been hit-or-miss with Texas having some of the most unpredictable weather in the spring, but instead we were met with absolutely breathtaking weather with a slight breeze that soothed the massive crowds.

Most attending Something Wonderful got their tickets as a refund due to the past festival cancellations.

“I’m so happy that we will finally be able to get to go to our festival without the weather messing everything up,” Trisha Paree said, who came all the way from Oklahoma University for the show.

She got refund tickets to the show because she drove all the way to the first Wonderful only for a rain-check. She then drove to Houston to go to Something Wicked, and they ended up canceling that show too.

Walking into the festival, you could already note the major improvements from Wonderful’s first year. The main stage had a dome over it in case of any rain, and the police presence was not as staggering as the past Wonderful festival where it seemed to be riddled with police officers and drug dogs. The location this year was an amazing choice on Disco Donnie’s part. Food trucks with enough room for everyone to sit back and relax if need be were there with a sitting section, filled with beautiful lights, soft carpet and massive inflatables rainbows.

Another improvement people were looking for this year was Wonderful’s VIP section. Last year, they were allowing VIPs to the front of the stage then slowly letting everyone else who had bought general tickets in – one at a time.

“I’m so happy that they decided to not do what they did last year with the VIP. It was ridiculous last year because it wasn’t even really VIP. They were just letting the VIP in first, and then slowly letting us in. And if you needed the free water, you had to leave,” frequent raver Danie Johnson said. “It was a mess. I’m so happy with how they have it now. It’s just like the other events.”

The artists brought everything they had. DaDa Life brought in massive, inflatable bananas for the crowd to bounce around and Borgore blinded with a spectacular light show. Though Wonderful seemed have some difficulty with the muffled sound system, Tiesto hit the stage and seemed to have rectified the issue as he brought the house down with amazing visuals and a more-than-appropriate volume.

Overall, Something Wonderful fulfilled its promises to satisfy beyond belief and gave their customers a quality show. Customers who’ve attended Disco Donnie events like UNT accounting senior Ferdinand Hardly expressed their gratitude and excitement for the events to come.

“Wonderful was so amazing. I can’t wait to go to Wicked in October and then back for Wonderful again,” Hardly said. “Donnie truly gave me an experience and I’m happy I came because the wait was worth it.”
