As Electric Daisy Carnival unfurls in Mexico, we can’t help but dream about the next EDC in Vegas. However, if you’re thinking, “What the heck is Electric Daisy Carnival?” Well, let us explain.
Electric Daisy Carnival — also referred by its abbreviation “EDC” — is a three-day festival filled with a wide array of electronic music, debauchery and art. DJs of all calibers perform, and it’s a weekend where the Las Vegas Motor Speedway turns into a festival of unity, self-expression and love.
During a time when the Covid-19 pandemic ripped apart normalcy, Electric Daisy Carnival was one of the events that suffered. The festival organizers canceled the three-day long festival. However in October 2021, the festival resumed back at the Motor Speedway, and the event attracted thousands of people from across the globe.
Many of those who attended said it was almost like a family reunion after a turbulent year, and “ravers” missed the pulsating music, craziness of the festival and the community.
Whether you’re 21 or 51, EDC is a festival that can cater to everyone. The festival’s theme is a carnival one, and amusement rides dot the festival grounds. Cutting–edge stage productions and interactive art installations makes the festival much more than simply a “musical” one.
There’s also the option of camping near the concert grounds with your “rave“ family, which many people believe is part of the overall “experience.” Couples can even get married at the festival with an official ceremony.
People from across the world plan and prepare for this multi–sensory carnival experience, which is less than 100 days away! Kaskade, Diplo, The Chainsmokers, and Subtronics were just a few of the many trailblazing acts from last year’s Electric Daisy Carnival.
Are you excited for this year’s? Because we definitely are. If you’re not then here are 7 set-moments that have been stuck with us ever since last year’s EDC.
WARNING: These may give you serious FOMO.
