There are only a handful of mega-festivals that are so well-known and so established that they are household names. Luckily for us, during festival season we get to enjoy back-to-back months of these festivals. As we move closer to June, we move closer to my favorite event in all of EDM- EDC Las Vegas.
Electric Daisy Carnival (commonly abbreviated as EDC) is the brainchild of Insomniac Events, one of the biggest event organizers in the EDM industry. EDC is now global, having festivals in Mexico, Tokyo, India, Brazil and the UK. EDC takes place in multiple states and cities across the country and has thrown down in Florida, New York, Texas and Colorado. EDC Las Vegas is Insomniac’s flagship festival and the most popular of the EDC series. And for one weekend every June, EDC takes over Las Vegas, with the festival running from dusk till dawn at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway.
EDC will run from Friday, June 16th to Sunday, June 19th. While the official lineup has not yet been released, the absolutely stacked EDC Week lineup hints at a lineup that will be just as good. EDC commands world-class talent and some of the best have taken the stage at Kineticfield, Cosmicmeadow, Circuitgrounds, Neongarden, Basspod and others.
While the weekend festival is the highlight of the neon weekend in Las Vegas, Insomniac also sponsors EDC Week- a weeklong party before, during and after EDC. EDC Week is open for attendees and for those who aren’t able to attend the festival itself, and has curated a lineup that includes top talent like Martin Garrix, Hardwell, Gareth Emery and others.
Traditionally, EDC does not drop its lineup until late May, only two or three weeks before the actual festival. As EDC draws closer, we’ll be doing a lot of counting down. Counting down until EDC drops the lineup, time slots and mainstage design, and of course- until the festival itself.
However, the weeks leading up to EDC shouldn’t be spent idle. EDC is an extravaganza and attendees will be decked out from tip to toe with neon colors, kandi of all designs, and eye-catching rave wear. Whether this is your first time celebrating under the electric sky, or you’ve danced until dawn before, we want you to have the best possible experience. We’ve curated a collection specific to EDC, featuring all your essentials, EDM clothing, and must-haves to have the best week(end) of your life. From glow accessories to colorful tops and themed outfits, we have something for everyone. Come check out our EDC LV Collection and find your perfect outfit.
