Attending multi-city dance fest Electric Daisy Carnival means taking part in a culture. Unlike rock-focused events like Coachella and Lollapalooza, EDC brings an entire underground lifestyle out into the daylight — and this year, onto the MetLife Stadium parking lot in New Jersey. Thousands of young people turned up even when heavy rain poured down, wearing Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle costumes, waving glow sticks and sharing the PLUR handshakeAhead are the 25 best things — DJs, sculptures, even tattoos — that Rolling Stone came across after two days dancing under the Jersey skies. By Nick Murray, Julianne Escobedo Shepherd and Brittany Spanos

This Spider-Man Tattoo

Sure, people were sporting some sick/cute/weird/goofy costumes they were going to discard when they returned to their regular, post-EDC lives. Some things, like tattoos, are permanent. Which is why this dude’s ink of a cross being held (straddled, perhaps?) by your friendly, neighborhood Spider-Man wins for best ink of the weekend. Props to him for being creative, and double props for wearing such a unique piece of art so proudly on his arm. B.S.
