Get your glow sticks out. Because Pop Secret wanted to celebrate EDC, America's most famous electronic dance music festival, the only way they knew how: By throwing a rave for popcorn, in a microwave. Hence, the name MicroRave. They did some serious engineering to make this happen, too, not the least of which was adding a disco ball, strobe lights and glow sticks.

The only thing that would have been cooler is if they had an actual life-sized installation of the MicroRave at EDC where kids could dance in it among the raver kernels. Maybe next year...
