The massive Electric Daisy Carnival kicked off this week in Vegas and will continue to rage through Sunday. Headliners Afrojack, Tiesto, Above & Beyond, Calvin Harris, Madeon, Armin van Buuren, Bloody Beetroots and former Swedish House Mafia member Steve Angelo brought out the masses and we do mean masses: 345,000 tickets for the event were snapped up.

The Electric Daisy Carnival used to be a Los Angeles event until 2010 when a 15-year-old who OD'ed on ecstasy collapsed on the dance floor and city leaders pretty much ran the event out of town. The carnival seems to have found a mostly happy home in Sin City for fans of EDM, glow-in-the-dark everything and girls not wearing very much.
