Note: Once again this year, Rocks Off is proud to share our L.A. sister blog West Coast Sound's coverage of this weekend's Electric Daisy Carnival in Las Vegas.

So much of this stuff
Saturday night 115,000 ravers, kandi kids, bros, babes and other assorted fun-lovers turned out for the second evening of Electric Daisy Carnival in Las Vegas. The city-sized electronic music megaparty started at dusk and featured sets by 75 artists including Avicii, Carl Cox, Tiësto, Wolfgang Gartner, Empire of the Sun and Major Lazer. The air temperature was damn near perfect, the crowd was loose but not rowdy, and the light-up art installations, fireworks, parade, stilt performers and carnival rides were all legitimately dazzling.

Keep Cool, Dance Hard: A Houston Look At EDC: Vegas Day 1

It was an epic party that went all damn night, straight on 'til morning. By the time the full moon was setting, the sun was rising and Dutch hardstyle producer Headhunterz was closing the Kinetic Field stage, a mainstage area that fits 80,000 people, the festival grounds were a bit of a mess. A rave-ey mess!

Here are some of the more notable items found on the ground this morning at dawn.

Shreds of ravaged blue tutu.

Empty bag of drugs.

Countless glowsticks.

Health and wellness items.

Menacing paper mask on a stick.

Decimated bottle of Jäger.

So many broken pairs of sunglasses.

Empty bag of drugs.

Do not be fooled; there were no babies at this party.

Additional health and wellness materials.

Discarded kooky accessories.

Empty bag of drugs.

Once-delicate flower crown.

Plastic daisy.

Free money.

Actual drugs.

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
