Electric Daisy Carnival Line-Up: The Place to be if You Score Tickets!


Published on Tue, May 21, 2013 by Arielle Hansen
Electric Daisy Carnival

The 2013 Electric Daisy Carnival will be taking place at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway from June 21-23rd, marking the return of one of the best festivals of the entire summer. Over 200 acts will be performing over the three days of this pinnacle of electronic music concerts. This Las Vegas music festival will consist of the hottest DJ’s, music producers and artists that make up the electronic music scene. Casino Boy has decided that there are bad Vegas crowds, and good Vegas crowds. The bad crowds are all the fanny-pack sporting tourists who stampede the Vegas strip and Las Vegas hotels, while the good crowds are ready to party at the drop of a hat (who came up with that expression anyways?) Thankfully, this Vegas festival is definitely in the latter camp.

Who is Gonna Be There?
Eight of the top ten DJ’s as ranked by DJ Mag will be spinning tracks at EDC Las Vegas, including the top three: Armin Van Buuren, Tiesto and Avicci. Rounding up the top ten list and also appearing at the festival are big names like Hardwell, Dash Berlin, Above & Beyond, Afrojack and Grammy award-winning Skrillex. Other names that pop on the list of over 200 acts that will be bringing their rave-friendly music to the Las Vegas Motor Speedway are Calvin Harris, Empire of the Sun, Wolfgang Gartner and La Roux. Those are some of Casino Boy’s faves, but check out the full list below to see if one of your top picks will be making an appearance at the Electric Daisy Carnival Las Vegas.

About the Festival
This is the third annual EDC fest in Vegas, but the festival started in 1997 in LA, and has built up a huge buzz around it ever since. Even though it takes place in a few different cities across the country each summer, none can match the glitz and glam and ready to party atmosphere of Vegas. Over 300,000 people came to the Las Vegas Electric Daisy Carnival last year to this three-day dance party that is the very definition of sensory overload (which is just the way Casino Boy likes it.)

Ticket Info
Tickets to the EDC Vegas music festival are a hot find these days, as they have already sold out online, but feel free to scour the web in the usual places for sought after tickets at non-Cheapo friendly prices. Unfortunately, it looks like most will set you back at least $400, so unless Casino Boy sells a kidney, he won’t be partying alongside any of you lucky ducks who managed to score tickets this year. Check out other Vegas deals to save money on if you do end up shelling out the cash for a ticket.

Other News About the Festival
If the stellar music lineup and raging party atmosphere wasn’t enough to get you frantically searching the web for tickets, you should know that the festival is also known for the crazy carnival rides, seven stages of music, interactive art installations, performance artists that join in the crowd, and fans decked out head to toe in fluorescent rave gear to make for an additionally eye-popping experience.
