On the outskirts of town at the Motor Speedway, Electric Daisy Carnival is pure, condensed Vegas. There is a VIP Ferris wheel. Helicopters shuttle in high rollers. The 134,000-strong crowd is soaked in MDMA and spray tan. Every millionaire DJ that plays the laser-riddled nightclubs on the Strip is here. EDC introduced EDM as a Day-Glo spectacle for the masses in America, and its lineups in recent years have certainly lived up to the hype: Tiësto, Calvin Harris, Avicii and Steve Aoki, among hundreds of others. Once you let the neon and bass wash over you, it is the time of your life.
