Some of the things we’ll remember forever about EDC Las Vegas 2014 include the massive kineticFIELD, the largest stage ever constructed in North America which towered over the crowd at 440 feet wide and 80 feet tall. The cathedral structure featured stained glass, a giant pipe organ and not just one but two enormous owls with outstretched wings which kept a watchful eye on the crowd from both sides of the massive altar where headliners prayed and danced to their favorite DJs. All eyes were fixated the on DJ booth located in mouth of the one-eyed cyclops bassCON stage which was surrounded by brightly lit graffiti-stained steel containers and junkyard automobiles. circuitGROUNDS was ginormous, almost twice the size this year than last year, breaking the record as the largest clear-span structure in the world. The fiery looking Mayan Warrior art car made its first appearance after its debut at EDC Mexico. A couple of our favorite things returned to EDC Las Vegas this year including the Electric Daisy, Dancetronauts, BoomBox and the Wide Awake Art Car.

But one thing is for sure, nothing will top the surreal experience of being under the electric sky at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway which was lit up from dusk-till-dawn with colorful lights of more than 30 carnival rides, five ferris wheels, 20 large-scale art installations, three nights of fireworks plus special effect stage lighting including streams of fire, vivid LED lighting and lasers.

Here are some the best moments that we captured in pictures.
