Considering that the operative word in EDM is "dance," it shouldn't come as any surprise that a helluva lot of movement tends to happen whenever tracks from the genre get played. It doesn't matter if it's happening at a club, in your car, or even in the shower, when the beats start flowing, people start moving.

And that proves to be especially true at EDM massives such as the most recent Wet Electric festival where thousands are induced to dance by the sounds being laid down.
