 Under the Electric Sky cast reunites in 2014.

Fans won’t have to wait until June 27th to get a glimpse of Live Nation’s Insomniac Events’ Electric Daisy Carnival documentary “Under the Electric Sky.”

In a clip provided exclusively to Billboard, attendees can instantly relive a particularly anthemic moment from Tiësto’s Kinetic Field set last year, as well as obtain a preview of the film’s impressive cinematography and unique insight into North America’s largest dance music festival.

Watch the clip exclusively on CODE:“I love to play music for other people,” Tiësto says. “When I’m onstage and you see this massive crowd, it’s like there’s so much energy. It’s like I’m flying. you know? It’s one of the best feelings you can have as a human being.”

Featured at Sundance Film Festival in January, the full-length 3D film was directed by Dan Cutforth and Jane Lipsitz and contains an original score courtesy of Kaskade. The film documents EDC’s 2013 edition in Las Vegas, including performances by such marquee artists as Fatboy Slim, Armin Van Buuren, and Avicii, as well as narratives from festivalgoers and Insomniac CEO Pasquale Rotella.

"It's about the experience and the most important element is the crowd," says Rotella, an executive producer of the documentary. "You go to connect. That's something that's difficult to understand if you come from pop, rock, hip-hop or rock. For us it was a no-brainer. I consider [the audience] the headliners. Everything is important, but the fans just a little bit more."

While already being shown in limited screenings, “Under the Electric Sky” will begin to see widespread release starting June 27th. Fans interested in attending an announced screening can purchase tickets at Under the Electric Sky.
