By the numbers when the 2014 Electric Daisy Carnival wrapped its three nights at dawn today at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, crowds had totaled 400,000 fans from 40 countries and all 50 states for performances by more than 200 of today’s most popular and underground DJs.
The Circuit Grounds stage, home to DJs Afrojack, Avicii and Calvin Harris, among others, this year, expanded to nearly twice its size in length, breaking the record as the largest clear-span structure in the world. Measuring 400 feet long, the stage also featured more than 750 lighting fixtures and 10,500 square feet of video panels that descended from the stage’s dome ceiling.
Some 70 legal weddings took place over the course of the three-day festival, more than five times the amount from last year. If the post-EDC blues are already setting in, you can relive the magic and catch a screening of the 3D documentary “Under the Electric Sky” as it hits select theaters here and throughout the southwest this Friday.
Our contributing videographer Richard Corey, who was there on my behalf, reported: “The most popular area was the charging cell phone stations. Many of the female hotties were in such sexy outfits that I was reminded of the Adult Video News Expo — awesome and outrageous. I heard that around 70 percent of the people attending EDC were from California.”
