Early concerts from EDC's Insomniac were warehouse raves that bordered on 'total chaos'

Young fans awed by the massive productions and installation art at this year's Electric Daisy Carnival might be surprised to learn that it wasn't always this grandiose.

In fact, the early shows from Pasquale Rotella's Insomniac firm were warehouse raves that bordered on "total chaos."

The firm's ramshackle '90s beginning is the subject of this clip from "Under the Electric Sky," the new documentary on Electric Daisy Carnival from Focus Features that opens in theaters June 27.

In this preview clip, KCRW's Jason Bentley helps recount the confusing, enticing means to get the address for a warehouse rave. Wondering if the cops would come give the night its giddy tension.

The film, directed by Dan Cutforth and Jane Lipsitz, gives a history of Insomniac and documents the 2013 event, with sets from headliners Kaskade (who contributed original music), Armin Van Buuren and more. It comes just days after the 2014 Electric Daisy Carnival, where acts such as Tieso, Avicii and Calvin Harris performed.

This year's show was marred by two deaths of attendees, however, though the fimmakers said its release will go on as planned. (For a review of the film, go here.)
