Festival Description

North America’s largest electronic music experience ELECTRIC DAISY CARNIVAL (EDC) takes place in Las Vegas, Nevada. ELECTRIC DAISY CARNIVAL is a combination of innovative musical sets by top-tier electronic musicians from around the globe; spectacular large scale art installations by a selection of artists whose works have also shown at Coachella and/or Burning Man; extraordinary light and sound production; and an intensely surreal assortment of performers who create a carnival for the eyes and ears that is unparalleled by any other music festival. ELECTRIC DAISY CARNIVAL as one of the largest single day attended music festivals in the US.

EDC has scores of still-to-be-announced artists that will appear on multiple stages, along with a mind-blowing array of attractions, more full-size carnival rides than ever before, costumed performers, and a wide array of newly commissioned large-scale art installations. With five themed areas of music, art and festivities, this will be a truly special ELECTRIC DAISY CARNIVAL.

Festival Dates June 21 - 23, 2013
