An estimated crowd of more than 7,000 people came to the Global Dance Festival at Tempe Beach Park this past weekend, most of whom were dressed both warmly and colorfully for the outdoor electronic music massive -- including hordes of attendees in outrageous and over-the-top costumes. Others went with skimpier attire, cold weather be damned.

But no matter what they were (or weren't) wearing, everyone in attendance at the festival was in the mood to go wild and get down to EDM served up by the likes of Steve Aoki, Adventure Club, Crizzly, and Morgan Page, which probably helped everyone stay warm.

We spent the entire evening chronicling the festival and kept a running tally of our favorite partiers that we saw along the way. Here's our rundown.
