Electric Daisy Carnival is crazy, guys!

All weekend, we were scorching in the heat of the desert by day and trekking out to the Las Vegas Motor Speedway (16 miles north of the Strip) at night to experience the full-on sensory overload that is EDC.

The event has come a long way since its days as an underground dance party in the dank warehouses of downtown Los Angeles. Now in its 17th year, the festival is huge, loud, crowded, and totally epic.

1. The stage productions are massive
We're not talking about some truss and a few spotlights here. This year's stages were a full-on Wonka fantasyland, with the hardstyle heavy bassCON stage decked out in post-apocalyptic steampunk grandeur and the main Kinetic Field stage featuring a 100-foot tall owl with animated wings surrounded by giant mushrooms and daisies. The effect was larger than life, especially when combined with the hyper-agressive music being blasted at the crowd from each stage setup.
