Electronica’s biggest outdoor house party kicked off Friday night as the Electric Daisy Carnival touched down on the East Coast at the MetLife Stadium.

Many music lovers were torn as another three-day music festival rocked out on the Jersey Shore for Bamboozle but it didn’t stop thousands of trance and house stans from bouncing back and forth between three stages to see their beloved DJs perform.

With over 80 artists on the set list, dubstep enthusiasts will be treated to the sounds of British tempo-pusher Fatboy Slim (Friday), Rihanna collaborator Calvin Harris (Saturday) and mainstream mover Afrojack (Sunday) among many others.

Carnival rides, bizarre art exhibitions and fireworks will also add to the electric feel of the event. The spectators will also be a sight to see as the standard uniform for the festival includes neon bright costumes and skimpy outfits. “It’s a cross between a music festival, a Cirque du Soleil show, a carnival and a Halloween party,” said Pasquale Rotella, Insomniac’s chief executive to the New York Times. “It’s the best people-watching in the world.”
