Best dance documentary of all time
9 July 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"EDC: Under the Electric Sky" captures why people go to parties and why I became a DJ. Everyone has their own "why" and when we all come together as one, to laugh, dance and celebrate, magic happens.

A connection between common strangers woven together by music, love, good energy and respect. Whether you have been to EDC every year or have never heard of it, see this movie!

Everyone has something they can relate to in this film. If you don't understand why we go, see this movie and you'll know. House music is something felt more than heard. Same thing with this film, see it but "feel" it too and you will understand the message.
