Reception[edit]

EDC 2013: Under the Electric Sky received mixed reviews from critics. Justin Lowe in his review for The Hollywood Reporter praised the film by saying that "Colorful 3D eye candy provides minimal cinematic nourishment."[8] Katie Hasty of HitFix, praised the film by saying that "For electronic and dance music lovers, that storyline may hit the spot, especially with the non-stop throb and the colorful scenery. There is no competing version, which is “Under the Electric Sky’s” triumph, and also its problem."[9] Dennis Harvey in his review for Variety said that "Those who suspect that EDM is possibly the most vapid form of 'alternative' music will have their suspicions confirmed by this 3D documentary."[10]
