Electric Daisy Carnival has grown exponentially over the past fifteen years. Now hosted annually at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway as a three-day event, EDC is one of the nation’s largest music festivals, and North America’s largest dance music event with attendance and acclaim topping even the most well-known mainstream music festivals. The internationally acclaimed carnival-themed event features full-size carnival rides, art installations, hundreds of costume-clad performers, and the largest stage built in North America. From a single-day festival, EDC today is a weekend long, multidimensional entertainment experience that combines the world’s most renowned dance music talent with leading-edge production and sound design. After hosting more than 230,000 amazing fans during EDC Las Vegas 2011, the world’s top musical and artistic talent will return to the Las Vegas Motor Speedway for the 16th Annual Electric Daisy Carnival on June 8, 9 and 10, 2012.
The Electric Daisy Carnival is hitting the road once again in 2012, with some exciting new destinations added to the calendar. When the EDC 2012 Tour takes off, it will deliver the full Insomniac experience to additional major, eager markets across the country and overseas. Last year’s EDC tour dates showed dramatic growth in attendance and fan support across the nation, as well as internationally, winning Best International Festival at the 2011 Ibiza DJ Awards.
