Nothing good comes from raves, except love.
Do Buddhists date? Buddhists do everything they want. They don't go to raves, do they?

Festival passes, shuttle passes, and premier parking passes are all available for purchase. A layaway option is also provided at checkout.

Always smile because you never know who's checking you out and deciding yeah or nah.

Now that you've spent all that money, how are you supposed to make it all worthwhile by meeting someone?

Cool girls hit on guys, but our society says, "It's a 'man's job' to approach women." And going trans or gay won't make it any easier, so here's The Guy's Guide to Girls written by Girls from Vice!

First, guys, here's what girls say: "We're not asking for Jane Austen [author of old-timey relationship novels]; we just want to be wooed, and we want you to be cool about it for once."

Spend too much time on the Internet and you'll end up thinking young men today fall into one of two camps -- hypersensitive puppy dogs trying to fund-raise their way to true love or guys who think "flirting" means getting sh-tfaced and screaming rape threats down a traffic cone at girls in the street.

Is "speed dating" the way to go?

Dude, check this out. I've been reading the Bro Bible. Why are they listening to him?
Sex? I'm a Buddhist looking for love!
While this picture isn't 100 percent accurate, it does seem that too many guys have adopted either the love formula or the Bro Bible as their seduction template, and frankly either of those approaches is as erotic to girls as the idea of getting f-nger-b-nged in a Jacuzzi by the Elephant Man.

Of course, girls know boys aren't all dumbasses. But the truth is, boys these days have really dropped their flirt game. Finding a woman to love you tender isn't about throwing a burlap sack over her head and tossing her on the back of a truck. It's also not about slithering up with some awful PUA [pick up artist] lines and trying to bully f-ck her.

We're not asking for Jane Austen; we just want to be wooed, and we want you to be cool about it. [So first, relax.]

Dating in the post-Tinder age is a romantic, political, and legal minefield, so here's a guide to help you through the painful business of chatting up girls, that is, talking smoothly to the ladies who get hit on daily and sniff out a bad approach like bad BO.

Don't pretend you haven't spent every last bathroom break this month hungrily trawling through girls' Tinder bikini pictures. Women know you're not "new" to the whole dating-app game.

The evidence doesn't suggest you find it particularly "weird." The only weird thing about it is the 15 minutes you just spent on a perfect stranger from Happn's LinkedIn page. (Hi! We can see when you do that, by the way!) We're all desperate and shallow and lonely, so let's not pretend otherwise....

Brown Latina beauties get all the men!
A lot of boys have become so used to copy-and-pasting "You still up?" to your 47 Tinder matches that you've forgotten how to talk to women in person.

Remember, there are some times where girls just don't want to be talked to -- if we look like we are already on a walk of shame, for example, or outside an abortion clinic.

Other than that, we're really fine with getting wooed anywhere. In fact, no matter how cynical the girl, it's really pleasant to think that someone still wants to b-ng us when we're applying Chapstick to our nose on a subway platform while contemplating cheesecake.

I thought you wanted to see a  pic of my...
Approaching a girl in an unlikely situation takes balls. Girls really like balls. Not to look at. Don't show us your balls. Don't text us your balls. Do talk to us (about things other than your balls and the size of your balls). What we think of dick pics.

In an ideal world, us single gals would walk around with a vial of "tears of solitude" around our necks, or wear our loneliness as a decorative brooch.

But unfortunately, you're going to have to go through the exhausting game of BS badminton that is finding out whether we're single.

House parties are particularly fraught for this reason: There's a good chance you could be trying it on with a girl while sitting next to her boyfriend, on his own bed. It might sound elementary, but the quickest way round that is to just ask her whom she came with. "Hey, who you here with?" and a smile ought to do it. More

How will I get to the show?
For easy travel to EDC, take an official EDC Shuttle. (Unofficial shuttles from third-party services might not be as expensive convenient). Shuttle passes, premier parking passes, and other money-drains can be added to cart during checkout process, or go here.
