As sun rises, EDC concludes another successful Las Vegas weekend
The outdoor music festival spanned three nights and drew an estimated crowd of 400,000.
"I mean, it's great because there's a lot more people. But it's a lot more mainstream. So, it's not really underground," says Angel Guiterrez, who has attended EDC for nine years.
EDC is held overnight on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. It begins each night at 8:30 p.m. and ends at 5:30 the next morning. On the last night, many people stay until the very end. And those who dance until EDC's final hour are caught up in a massive traffic jam as over 100,000 people share Las Vegas Boulevard to the Strip and Interstate 15.

"On the way there you feel like you're flying there, you know. You're, like, so hyped up. But, on the way back, that's the only part you're tired," says Efrain Esquivel.
More than 40 people were arrested for drug crimes at EDC, and more than 200 people needed medical help.
