If you've only ever raved and raged with Ultra Music Festival while totally naked and home alone with your laptop, a 12-inch glowstick, and the fest's live YouTube stream, then it's fucking time to physically visit Bayfront Park.
Just think of everything that you're missing by staying cloistered in your little private party room, uhntz-uhntz-ing vicariously via the web: You've never met Elvin the Ecstatic All-American Elephant (see above) and you've never seen a girl take 30 minutes to realize that her boob just fell out of her bikini top (see the cut) and you've never stomp-danced to New Order, Benny Benassi, Afrojack, Miike Snow, Pretty Lights, Kraftwerk, and Skrillex in the same beat-freaking night.
These are the top twenty photos from Day One of Ultra Music Festival 2012. And this is what you're missing.
