    I was talking with my friend about Pacquiao agreeing with Mayweather's term for the fight. The fight might go down if Mayweather agrees, but that's another debate. If it does we were thinking about going.

    Then my friend brought up that we should go to edc. From the videos online, it looks crazy. Essentially 3 days of 7 pm to 5 am in thizzle mode. Its a lot of uns uns uns.

    How is standing in the crowd with so many people? I saw tables are available. Is it worth it? We won't be drinking alcohol that's for sure. How's the crowd? Is the traffic there and back crazy? Can you only get tickets for 3 nights, not 1 or 2 nights?

    There is potential death if we decide to go lol.

    Watch the movie:

    Under the Electric Sky (available on Netflix)

    http://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/edc_2013_under_the_electric_sky/?search=electric%20sky

    It shows EDC 2013 and the stories of 5 individuals/couples/groups that attend.

    It made me understand 2 things

    1)It's a gigantic rave party
    2)I'm 35 years too old and 40 lbs. overweight to go

    I'm mildly agoraphobic, so the crowds would be too much for me.

    I have been in LV during the last 2 EDCs.

    That being said, I do enjoy watching the cute young girls in bikinis and furry leggings returning from EDC each morning.

    You can only get tickets for all three nights, and this year is sold out. However, tickets will show up on Craigslist. The closer to EDC, the price will slowly drop.

    Yes, it is 3 days of massive thizzle. Some of the stages are wall to wall people, but there are areas that are less crowded if you need to take a break. Typically, it is only 3 day packages, but you can usually find people breaking up their days or EDC will sell 1 day passes as well.

    Tables are not worth it unless you want to spend a crap load of coin. Make sure you have a shuttle pass (They have their own route they can take through the military base) unless you have something setup with your hotel for limo or chopper service.

    ^This!!!
    Traffic will be insane!

    From following cab drives on Twitter I have NO desire to go to Vegas on a big boxing weekend. It's appalling the amount of women they end up taking to the airport early due to being groped wherever they go. Boxing doesn't bring in the most upstanding clientele.

    For 2014 the gate was 400,000 over 3 days. That is an average of 134,000 per day.
