The Electric Daisy Carnival, more commonly known as EDC, is known for bringing million dollar DJs and outrageous fashion to Las Vegas every year. In 2016, more than 130,000 attendees descended onto Las Vegas Motor Speedway in just one day and this year is expected to get even crazier. While trends come and go, EDC attendees usually fall into a few types, so here's a rundown of 10 trendy types you'll see at EDC.
1. Guys with fidget spinners
2017 is the year of the fidget spinner and there's no doubt that this toy will make its festival debut at EDC. Whether users bring them to combat anxiety or keep the party going, expect to find lost fidget spinners on the floor.
2. Ravers from the 70s
If you want to talk about a real raver, look no further than Baddie Winkle. Known for her outrageous and show-stopping clothing, Baddie has been attending EDC for years and has no plans to stop. She's a great role model for bringing out your young side at any age.
3. Couples in matching costumes
It doesn't matter if you bring your bro or your bae to EDC: there's something about the desert that brings out couples in matching gear. Last year, someone got married at the Chapel of Future so who knows what this year will bring (maybe an onstage proposal during Afrojack's set?)
4. Furballs in all forms
Fur boots, fur vests, you name it - they got it. A huge part of EDM culture is neon-colored fur, so consider showing up in fur boots that look a little sweaty, but feel surprisingly comfortable.
5. Shirtless guys and girls
Whether it's the heat or the rage, EDC makes people take their clothes off. Expect to see shirtless guys, pantless girls, and everything in between.
6. Beaded barbies
They're colorful, plastic, and fun to wear. Beads have made a neon comeback to EDC in the form of bracelets and masks, but most people wear them to show off their master beading skills.
7. Fanboys in helmets and masks
Daft Punk, Marshmello, and deadmau5 are more known for their helmets than their music, so their most loyal fans usually take part and hide behind a mask. These people will definitely lose themselves in the music but also become huge fanboys at their favorite DJ's set.
8. Intergalactic divas
When the sun goes down, the EDC aliens come out. Some people have crazy costumes and makeup to match, but these are usually people that find themselves with melted faces at the end of the day.
9. Blinding rainbow fairies
What you wear is almost as important as who you see. EDC is about the magic of the night, which means bringing out rainbow unitards, fairy wings, and all the glitter you got.
With a crazy lineup including Zedd, Alesso, and Galantis, every attendee will find an artist they like. Here's to a shirtless, neon, and crazy EDC weekend!
