We're running out of superlatives for EDC.

What more can be said of Insomniac's flagship festival brand at this point? It's long been a lynchpin of the electronic music community, but even though EDC is considered the apotheosis of dance music hedonism, its architects are seemingly hellbent on raising the bar year after year.

And after being on the ground at this year's festival in Orlando, it was clear the star of EDC's legend somehow got even brighter.

There was no ambiguity when it came to Insomniac's commitment to fan experiences. Tinker Field became an adult playground where ravers could frolic through swaths of giant mushrooms by day before they transformed into polychromatic art installations by night. Towering LED daises glittered beneath the night sky, which ultimately became a canvas for a dumbfounding drone show that brought the festival to a collective—and almost sedative—standstill.

Considering the festival's reputation as an arbiter of taste in Florida's music festival landscape—and its impact on the local economy—it's no wonder Insomniac annually gives its "headliners" a hero's welcome in Orlando. Despite its staggering lineup, EDC Orlando's most crucial cornerstone is its production.

Here are 22 images that encapsulate the stupefying sights of EDC Orlando 2022.
