Electric Daisy Carnival presented by Insomniac Events

The Electric Daisy Carnival in Las Vegas is officially sold out, and that’s no surprise since it’s the world’s biggest, baddest electronic music festival on the planet. If you went last year, and thought that was amazing, this time around it will be better than you’ve ever dreamed.

EDC, presented by Insomniac Events, will hit the Las Vegas Motor Speedway from June 8-10, and it’s estimated to draw in 345,000 attendees. A majority of the attendees are going out of their way to attend one of the largest parties on the planet, as more than 80% of the attendees will be coming from out of town.  The music festival will be a thrilling mix of 30 full-sized carnival rides, six stages with some of the best artists in electronic music, 500 theatrical performers and plenty of interactive art installations for your entertainment. This event is sold out for a reason: it’s the party to be at for music lovers.

“This is the first time Electric Daisy Carnival has sold out this far in advance and to our largest audience yet,” said Pasquale Rotella, CEO and founder of Insomniac. “I am excited to see that the fans have adjusted to our new home in Las Vegas and grateful for the support the city has contributed to make this event a continued success. I encourage the attendees to explore all Las Vegas has to offer throughout EDC Week as their energy is a key attribute toward the overall experience. I consider the fans our biggest headliners and cannot wait to see everyone come together under the desert sky.”

The weekend of June 8-10 is going to wreck some wallets, but the events in Las Vegas will eclipse all other parties. In addition to having the events of EDC, Manny Pacquiao and Timothy Bradley will be facing off in the ring on June 9 at the MGM Grand.

What should you expect at EDC? Well, the 1,000-acre Las Vegas Motor Speedway will be transformed into an interactive carnival and audio-visual experience. There will be 7 grand stages for the amazing lists of artists, such as Kaskade, Steve Aoki and Headhunterz. Plenty of theatrical performers will be there as well, including fire twirlers, aerialists, dancers and there will also be a special performance by the Blue Man Group. All these facets of EDC will be accompanied by state-of-the-art sound production and lighting.

Although EDC tickets are sold out on the main website, there are still tickets floating around if you look hard enough on online marketplaces. So don’t be the guy that says, “maybe next year.”
