Wet Electric: A Field Guide to This Weekend's Event

It's time to drop a little knowledge on y'all: According to the eggheads of acoustic science, sound waves tend to travel much more efficiently through water than through air. And the practical upshot of this particular factoid? If you somehow wind up underwater at either of the this weekend's two Wet Electric pool parties -- either after taking a trip down a waterslide or after getting dunked by a frenemy -- you won't miss a single second of all the club bangers, and remixes being blasted.

And believe us, there will be a lot of music to soak up during both editions of the two-day festival.
