It might be hard to understand from the outside, but the life of an EDM fan isn't as "kandi-coated" as it may seem. The amazing and welcoming world of electronic music and festival life has its high and its lows, but no matter how well you adapt to the scene, there are few obstacles that are more prevalent than those encountered while at a show.

From finding the right parking spot to dealing with dance floor creepers, here are 10 obstacles that every EDM faces when attending a show:

1. Finding a parking spot

2. Waiting in the cold to get inside the venue

3. Touchy-feely security

4. Deciding whether to use coat-check

5. Drinks being too expensive

6. Rude bartenders

7. Forgetting your earplugs

8. Dance floor creepers

9. Over-crowded dance floors

10. Losing your friends
