Insomniac Hits The British Capital: EDC London (In Photos)

Today was a historic day for the British capital as over 30 musical acts and a sold-out crowd descended upon Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park to realize Pasquale Rotella's vision for "Insomniac International." Fans at the London stop on the road to Las Vegas had the special opportunity of riding a zip line over the crowd of 50,000 in addition to taking in the usual eye candy that comes with any EDC stop such as Poet Kinetics' famed 100-foot "Electric Daisy."

EDC Vegas Comes To A Close: Night Three Photo Recap

The country's biggest weekend for dance music came to a close this morning after the sun rose over the Las Vegas Motor Speedway. The "Nightowl Experience," the brainchild of Pasquale Rotella, saw over 80,000 people gathered at kineticFIELD to partake in audio-visual overload. As hundreds of performers gathered at the sides of Mother Owl, thousands of glowing beach balls dropped from the sky as the crowd became covered with a sea of spider webs. After watching the weekend's celebration from afar, a lot of people are already counting down to EDC 2014. Check out these great photos from the event's closing night.

20 Reasons Why It's Not Too Late To Go To Electric Forest

I cannot begin to describe how excited we all are to embark on our return journey to Rothbury next weekend to celebrate the third annual Electric Forest festival. Since coming back from last year, I've been a sort of missionary for the festival trying to get as many people as possible to go so they too can take part in the most revitalizing experience I have ever had. It's never too late to celebrate summertime in America, and I encourage you all to join no matter if it's this week. Here's a short list of my reasons Electric Forest beats any festival, with some of our pictures from last year.

In Photos: Night Two at EDC Vegas

Last night saw another sold-out crowd of 115,000 people descend upon the Las Vegas Motor Speedway to see over 75 dance music acts. For the Saturday night festivities, EDC went all out for a parade of over 50 clowns and lollipop girls from the CircuitGrounds stage through the massive complex. Night two also saw more of a chance for festivalgoers to interact with the art installations that were around them, from Poet Kinetic's trademark Electric Daisy sculpture, a 100 foot tall moving flower, to Soma, a 50 foot long interactive fire display made by the Flaming Lotus Girls. Take a peek with us into last night's rainbow gala.
