In  Los Angeles, Floats are still old school and you're gonna need to do a little prep ahead of time. In order to Float, you'll need either a smartphone or an mp3 player, and definitely a set of headphones or earbuds.

The night before the Float, the DJs will post their mixes on the Facebook event page. Here's where you come in. You're gonna download the mixes. Yes, all three! You're going to upload them to your music listening device. Yes, all three of them! Yes, each one has a different title!

You are NOT, however, going to LISTEN to the music in advance, because that would SPOIL THE TRANSPORTATIVE MAGIC OF THE VIRGINAL LISTENING EXPERIENCE. Seriously, don't do it.

If you cannot download the music in advance, DON'T PANIC. They've got you covered. There'll also have links to lower bit rate versions of the tracks for you livestream. It's better if you download though. Trust us.
