LAS VEGAS (KSNV & -- Mix in a supermoon, heart pounding music, glow sticks and techno dance and you have the perfect recipe for night 2 of the Electric Daisy Carnival. Opening night was a success. Not many ravers getting into trouble with the law, and officers are hoping the second night will go about the same.

Traffic started even before dusk and just grew steadily into the night, from cars, cabs, limos to even helicopters, bringing people to the speedway.

"Dance til dawn til the sun just have fun 'til the sun comes up, just havin' a good time," said party-goer Michael Balke.

That's the plan for him and and his friends. They've got their homemade bracelets on and they are ready for an experience.

"I'd have to say it's a movement. It's more of a culture in music that's rising in all the young," said Philip Coker.

They will be inside the Las Vegas Motor Speedway enjoying the pulsating music and carnival rides with at least 100,000 others.

"You see people in costumes. It's amazing because normally you don't get these kinds of things. It's like your imagination can go with the flow," said Coryn Simons who decorated herself with some jeweled flowers on her neckline.

"All it is, is listen to music, be free, go on rides, meet new people hopefully, and dance. and next thing you know it's seven in the morning," said Daniel Espinoza.

During the first night, according to law enforcement, only one DUI arrest and they say the traffic plan went pretty smoothly.

"We want them to have a great weekend so most importantly they have to follow the rules that are in place with the police officers that are on location, with the Highway Patrol troopers that are posted in different traffic positions.

Make sure you do follow their guidelines, because we're here to keep everyone safe so we can get traffic flowing in and out as efficiently as possible," said Nevada Highway Patrol Trooper Loy Hixson.

While officers try to keep it safe for everyone, party-goers will stay focused too.

"...feelin' good, having a good time bunch of friends and us hanging out, enjoying the music. it's a life changing experience for us," Michael Balke said.
