The Ambassador stage transformed into EDC-lite Sunday evening during Zedd’s hour-long show, which drew one of the largest crowds of the festival. It was unclear how the Strip headliner might draw at a festival catering more to rock and indie acts, but teens in Halloween costumes and ravewear grabbed their glowsticks and flocked en masse to the stage, where crowds were doused by confetti cannons for just the right Vegas nightclub touch. The Light resident played a refreshing mix of driving, bass-heavy electro house that drew passersby to the set during its last half hour. The set culminated in the Russian DJ’s summer smash “Clarity,” during which he cut out the vocals and let the crowd belt them out instead. Despite the song’s ubiquity, Sunday night’s fan edition managed to be one of the most chill-inducing of the festival.
