As we mentioned in our Top Upcoming Summer Music Festivals, it was worth the short trip to Kitchener for Day 2 on a cold rainy day to see Benny Benassi and Diplo on Sunday, May 31st, 2015 for the first Ever After Fest.

The rain was unrelenting throughout most of the day and EDM fans wore ponchos and rain boots yet were in good spirits as young, hardcore music fans are.

But finally during Benny Benassi’s set in the midst of the rain let up and instead, it rained confetti paper hearts (from our friends at Air Magic FX).
