Storyline

Beginning in 1997 with a few thousand revelers in Los Angeles, the Electric Daisy Carnival has become the largest dance music event in North America. Known for its over the top displays of pyrotechnics, world-class artists, costumed theatrical performers, interactive art installations, full scale carnival rides and state-of-the-art lighting and sound production, this year's festival attracted 345,000 attendees from June 21-23, 2013. Shot in IMAX 3D, the film will follow festivalgoers as they prepare for their journey to EDC Las Vegas and chronicle their unique experience throughout the three-day festival. Behind the scenes footage and interviews with key Insomniac team members will give new audiences the chance to discover what has made the Electric Daisy Carnival a global phenomenon.

User Reviews

 
Best dance documentary of all time
9 July 2014 | by brian-26-891932See 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.
