EDGE's celebration of the season was a rousing success

This was the year of redemption. Last year, event headliner Aaron Godson’s set was cut short by a burst of rain that fried the soundsystem and sent the crowd of 700+ revelers home early. This year, the event was blessed by near-perfect weather, a turnout of more than 900 happy party-goers (even though the line for booze tickets got a bit epic at times), and Godson’s triumphant return to the stage.
