25 Struggles Only An EDM Fan Would Understand

As with any frivolous and energetic way of life, the EDM lifestyle comes with its fair share of merits and demerits. Although it can feel like the negative factors outweigh the positive ones at times, it’s imperative for every EDM fan to hold on to the memories that made them so dedicated in the first place. Laughter has a way of curing pain better than medicine, so it's vital for us to laugh at some of the unavoidable struggles every electronic dance music fan repeatedly has to deal with.

Here are just 25 of the struggles that EDM fans repeatedly encounter:

1. Getting through what seems like the longest school/work week before an event or festival
