A staple in all electro lovers’ calendars, Electric Daisy Carnival (EDC) is a three-day music festival with the flagship event held in Las Vegas each year. This award-winning festival has been so successful that versions of the event now take place in all corners of the globe from Mexico and Japan to China, India and the UK.
Crowds adorned in an array of colour, glitter, light and make-up strut their way to the dancefloor where they can rave to their heart’s content for hours on end to some of the world’s greatest performers. Headline acts include top dance DJs such as Tiësto, Diplo, Major Lazer and Yellow Claw.
The festival has a welcoming atmosphere for the EDM community where dancers join together to move to the beat and while away the night listening to the sounds they love. Ravers are encouraged to look after the environment, themselves and each other while still ensuring they have a raucous time.
Each stage is decorated to the Nth degree, with luminous owl guardians on the kineticFIELD Stage, art installations surrounding the cosmicMEADOW and a variety of other scintillating styles for each and every arena.
‘The crazy, colourful event brings together music, lights, fire and fancy dress in a fun-filled fiesta to remember!’
As you would expect, Las Vegas certainly knows how to put on a show and the Electric Daisy Carnival is no different. Performers, pyrotechnics, rides and revelry all combine to make a truly unforgettable event. Dance your heart out, get high on life on carnival rides and marvel at fireworks as you enjoy the EDC spectacular.
The Electric Daisy Carnival in Las Vegas takes place at the Motor Speedway (7000 N. Las Vegas Blvd Las Vegas, NV 89115).
There are nine stages in total at the EDC so you’ll need to choose which performers you want to see and plan your stage schedule accordingly.
There are a number of ways to get to the Electric Daisy Carnival but the easiest option is probably to take one of the designated shuttles provided during the event. There are both Standard and Premium shuttles available that will run on a regular basis and provide comfortable travel, restroom breaks and water. These are the only charter option that has direct entry to the festival grounds.
It is possible to drive or take a taxi to the Electric Daisy Carnival but it may be easier not to have to think about your car when the temptation of a drink and dance is calling. There is a designated Uber zone for drop-offs and general parking is free so it’s something to think about.
If you really want to go all out for your festival extravaganza, you can choose to fly in to the Electric Daisy Carnival by luxury helicopter! Does it get much cooler than that?! Maverick Helicopters has partnered with EDC to offer VIP heli transfers right into the heart of the festival.
Four-night camping is available part of the Electric Daily Carnival meaning you don’t even need to leave the fiesta when the night is over! Both pre-set-up pod camping and RV spots are available so you can choose your festival home and relax. The Mesa, a central zone of fun, food and extra festival frolics is only accessible to camping guests and is where the party continues daily from Thursday afternoon to Monday evening!
