Armin Van Buuren, Ultra Music Festival

This weekend thousands upon thousands of young people descended upon Bayfront Park in Miami for yet another year of the Ultra Music Festival.

For those of you who, say, don't follow the whereabouts of our country's raver community, this is one of the biggest EDM fests of the year. That means three straight days of heart-thudding bass, seizure-inducing lazers, and enough neon clothing to outfit a small country. 

While many concert-goers are no doubt unique, well-meaning individuals who do not make us cringe, there was also quite the opposite crowd. For whatever reason, music festivals seem to attract some of our nation's most obnoxious youths, most of whom have an affinity for, say, wearing american flag-print fanny packs and throwing up the shocker during a selfie.

If you did not spend your weekend head-banging and fist-pumping your way through Miami, you're probably wondering just who turned out for this year's event. Ahead is a small selection of the most cringe-worthy types who turned out, so you can be glad that you're not 22 for once. 

All the youths who were so moved by the music that they can barely continue on:

Bros. Just...bros.
