Las Vegas Motor Speedway is turned into the neon carnival of your dreams June 19th through the 21rst for Electric Daisy Carnival, the famed dance music festival that drew in close to more than 400,000 people last year in Sin City. Featuring world wide DJ and EDM acts such as Alesso and Benny Benassi, the trailer for this year’s festival just came out and yeah, it kinda makes me want to go dance in a corner by myself like no one’s watching. Really.
With eight stages, one of them the largest in North America, and an entire carnival setup complete with roller coasters and spinny rides, the festival is massive. You know, meaning there’s a lot of room for activities. And yeah, the majority of people who weren’t into Coachella because of things like sweaty crowds, constant dancing, and DJs, probably won’t be into EDC either, but the girls in the video will easily convince you otherwise.
And if you were digging the track that was playing during the trailer, Adventure Club is the brains behind it. For the first time ever, EDC has an official anthem so if you’re going, you’ll probably be hearing this song a lot. ‘Scuse me, gonna go dance in my cubicle now.
The 2015 EDC lineup was “decoded” about an hour ago (whatever the hell that means.) From Calvin Harris to Flosstradamus, check out this year’s acts.
