More of an Infomercial than a documentary

Right off the bat you see that the "documentary" is made by Insomniac, the same people who host EDC. It follows a few groups of concert goers to the Electric Daisy Carnival in 2013. It starts off entertaining and visually spectacular, but soon digresses into what seems like a promo piece. Approximately 350,000 people show up to this event and it's pretty much just about the positives about the event (which I am sure it mostly is).

Other than a little puff piece about EMTs helping people in need, there is no coverage of the economics, sanitation effort, parking, traffic, food, actual security, event erection, and teardown, local public opinion, actual injuries, drug/alcohol overdoses, legal hurdles, logistical challenges, etc.

Where they lose me is when the Texas girl gets picked out of the crowd of vast people to get up on stage with her beloved DJs Above and Beyond, and gets to participate in some token gesture of pushing a button starting the music up again. This was clearly scripted.

Overall it's an enjoyable watch, but fairly repetitive. Watch the 20 minute 2012 Tomorrowland official video on youtube (which is fun), if you want that video to last for 85mins, then this is the flick for you.

Honest, uplifting documentary

It was quite surprising the group of people that Insomniac chose to follow for this event - not going for sexy & stylish, but the real, raw, silly, and the sometimes foolish to truly capture the diversity of people drawn to events like EDC. It was very refreshing in a documentary.

I've seen many documentaries where the influence of the camera is very felt in the final product - one can imagine that we are not witnessing actual real life but something deeply influenced by a camera there to watch it all. I don't get that feeling at all in this documentary. It's an authentic look at these people's lives and what events like EDC and the music means to them.

Great documentary that tells the real story!

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.
