EDC: The Parking Lot Chronicles

EDC: The Parking Lot Chronicles

DSC_0722-2

So you and your friends made it. You have finally arrived at EDC. Now comes the longest walk you will ever take as a fan. Sure, it may only take five minutes, but that walk is the culmination of months of waiting, hours of traveling and is all that is keeping you from entering one of the greatest festivals on the planet. For some, the trip was only a few hours, but for others it took days. The parking lot at EDC can be the meeting spot for friends, the perfect spot for a dance party, or even a great place to make some last minute outfit changes. Whatever your story, however you got there, each fan in that parking lot is unique and has their own story. Insomniac took some time to talk to the fans and hear their side to those stories. Check it out!

Every journey has a beginning and an end. If you made it out to the Las Vegas Motor Speedway to celebrate with us Under the Electric Sky at EDC Las Vegas this year, chances are you had a unique story to tell. Every afternoon, from Friday to Sunday, we ventured out to the parking lot to capture all the energy and excitement you brought. These are just a few of the beautiful Headliners we had the pleasure of meeting.

Inspired by the short film cult classic ‘Heavy Metal Parking Lot,’ ‘EDM Parking Lot’ is a new series that captures those transitory yet magical moments between arriving at an Insomniac show and walking through the gates into the festival grounds. For our Headliners, this is the culmination of a journey that is weeks or possibly months in the making. “What are you most excited for?” “How far did you travel?” “Why are you so passionate about electronic dance music culture?” Every emotion is felt and expressed—from relief to disbelief—and our cameras are there to capture it all.
