Recently made available on Netflix, Under the Electric Sky, is a documentary of the 2013 Electric Daisy Carnival (EDC) held in Las Vegas. As an EDM fan that attends several shows each year that are unfortunately nowhere near the size of EDC, I have had a good amount of exposure to the US EDM scene. While I was familiar with most of the DJs, fashion and sights, I was still astounded by the sheer amount of production, lighting and people at EDC. There also honest about their subject using "normal", "strange" and even an oafish group of guys to guide you though the festival. Altogether, well-put together documentary of the people attending the show as well as a glimpse the actual festivities that take place.
