Badass news for ravers: EDM as a cultural movement has reached an import milestone where it’s getting feature-length documentary films made about it. In an attempt to show the PLUR good side of the EDM festival scene (unlike the molly poppin’, pissing-on-passed-out-people bad side the media likes to obsess over), Insomnia teamed up with Focus Features to create Under the Electric Sky, a 3D documentary about the Electric Daisy Carnival experience during the 2013 festival:
Under the Electric Sky is an immersive 3D documentary that explores the allure of the EDM (electronic dance music)phenomenon as told through the experiences of six different groups among the nearly 350,000 festivalgoers attending the Electric Daisy Carnival (EDC) 2013 in Las Vegas. These moving personal stories are set against a soundtrack that includes globally renowned artists such as Afrojack, Above & Beyond, Armin Van Buren, Avicii, Hardwell, and Tiësto. The lights, lazers, art, and confetti from EDC make you feel like you’re a part of the experience.
The flick is a behind-the-scenes look at what it takes to throw one of the most insane EDM ragers on the planet. Look for it in theaters starting May 29th. The lineup for the 2014 edition of Electric Daisy Carnival will be unveiled on May 27.
