Fisher to Headline Camp EDC

EDC Las Vegas 2019 is heading our way but first, it’s time to announce who will be kicking off the Camp EDC party. Grammy-nominated producer, Fisher, along with LatmunLittle FritterMason Maynard, and Melé will hit the decks during this campers-only festivity. Taking place on Thursday, May 16 at 8 pm, groove to Fisher’s Catch & Release party. At Camp EDC, you will experience new activities and improved amenities to the grounds.

For the 2nd year in EDCLV history, attendees can enjoy their home away from home at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway. Camp EDC returns for a convenient four-night stay directly next to your largest West Coast dance music festival. Enjoy this extended kickoff party after hours, performed exclusively for camping Headliners.

What’s the camping experience about?

This is the ultimate, immersive camping experience, guys. Now with a revised entrance plan, additional staff and entrance lanes make for a quick and easy arrival into Camp. Extended check-in times, a stronger power grid, and more bathrooms/showers add to the improved site layout. No more getting lost or confused!

Inside the Mesa (the bustling hub of entertainment and amenities) lie dynamic new structures plus a new lineup of activities for campers to enjoy all weekend long.   Insomniac is bringing back the Oasis Pool so drink, listen to special guest DJ sets, and feel the tropical vibes all day long. More information on the official Camp EDC pool-party lineups TBA.

Moon Glow, Desert Rose Premier, or RV? You decide. All tent camping options come fully closed, lockable, and dust-controlled. Nestle in your ShiftPod2 structure with comfortable artificial grass flooring, air conditioning, and interior lighting. 4-port USB strips come included for your charging needs. Interested yet? Packages for Camp EDC are available for purchase here.

Don’t forget that all campers are required to have an EDC LV pass in addition to their camping pass. Get your ticket here now and we’ll see you all under the Electric Sky!

The Marquee SkyDeck Bottle Service returns to EDC Vegas 2018

“Go big or go home” is the mantra that many take when attending major festivals like EDC Las Vegas, and if you’re a Headliner looking to celebrate in style then Insomniac definitely has you covered. Partnering up with the TAO Group to bring the Marquee SkyDeck experience to EDC Las Vegas once again, this extravagant Las Vegas experience is one that you should consider if you can afford it.

If you’re already suffering from serious FOMO and want to grab tickets to EDM’s biggest stage before it’s too late, we’ve got you covered:

Marquee SkyDeck EDC Las Vegas

Hosted at the kineticFIELD, this year’s edition of Marquee SkyDeck is set to double its size and offer plenty of amenities for those who spend the extra dough. Private tables with expansive views of the main stage, access to all VIP areas of the festival, private transportation from check-in directly to your table, and air-conditioned restrooms are just some of the perks included.

EDC 2018 Announcements and Changes

Already missing the adrenaline rush under the electric sky? Well, you’ll still have to wait a bit for the next EDC but it will be one month shorter than usual. Headlining a number of changes for the acclaimed best EDM music festival in the world, the event dates will be pushed a month earlier to May 18-20, 2017. While this may mean bad news for high school and college students who will be having their finals, it is music to the ears of other ravers. An earlier date allows for a more forgiving climate in the hot deserts of sin city. On top of that, the opening ceremony will be extended by one hour each day, meaning more time getting turnt and vibe out before the main events.

An recently constructed additional lane in the immediate area of the Speedway will alleviate traffic in and out of the area. If that is still not good enough for you, EDC 2018 will actually allow camping and RVs to stay overnight on site!

Tents available for rent:

  • Air-conditioned GA tents decked out with dust-control canvas walls, comfortable artificial grass, and electrical outlets for up to six attendees 
  • Air-conditioned Premier tent complete with dust-control canvas walls, comfortable artificial grass, twin or queen-sized beds, linens, pillows, towels, tables, chairs, and lights for up to two or four attendees

For RVs, you can either drive your own to the site or rent one fully equipped with linens and pillows, courtesy of Insomniac.

EDC prices may be going up every year but hey, it’s one of those magical things in life that you really shouldn’t miss. Tickets for EDC Las Vegas 2018 go on sale Thursday, September. 28 at 12 p.m. PT at electricdaisycarnival.com.

For now, you can watch this trailer by Insomniac to get a glimpse of what to expect.

EDC 2017 Tips and Tricks

Looking to have a fantastic weekend under the electric sky at EDC Las Vegas? Follow these tips from a veteran headliner!

Whether you’re attending EDC Las Vegas for the first time or returning to the Las Vegas Motor Speedway to dance all night once again, we know that you’ll want to optimize your experience. Over the years many of the die-hard headliners who have been in attendance have given their best EDC Las Vegas Tips to members of their rave families and others in the community, to provide the best weekend of their life.

As active contributors to the r/ElectricDaisyCarnival Subreddit and Facebook Group, we have seen our fair share of what works and what doesn’t. Simple things like essential items to bring, or what to do in Las Vegas or on the festival grounds have been refined as new ideas and experiences come to life. The EDC Las Vegas Tips & Tricks below come from years of experience attending the event and hopefully will help you have an awesome experience too.

EDC Las Vegas Tips & Tricks


Call your bank/credit card companies before you leave and hit the bank or ATM before you leave home.

Let them know you will be traveling to Vegas to avoid holds on your account. Cash is also king for tips on the strip or if you plan on gambling, and the ATM fees are generally very high both inside the festival and on the strip itself.

Credit and debit cards could also possibly be hit or miss if the speedway’s internet network isn’t too reliable. Don’t be stuck without a way to pay for something you need!

Be vigilant on the Strip.

Everyone is trying to hustle, be wary of offers that are too good to be true. Watch out for promoters on the street who are just trying to fill their quota and aren’t actually giving you free access to nightclubs. Street performers will expect tips if you take pictures!

Hit up a Vegas buffet at least one day.

There are plenty of amazing buffets around the strip and many of them are worth their price of admission. Make sure to check Yelp! for reviews, and there are even discounts available if you play MyVegas or are a member of the casino’s club.

Stay comfortable throughout the weekend.

Stretch in your hotel room before leaving for the festival each day. Your muscles will thank you in the morning and you won’t cramp up as easy in the heat!

Wear comfy shoes or get insoles to replace the “stock” insoles that come with your shoes. Also, consider investing in a pack of moleskin if your feet are prone to blisters from rubbing against your socks. Your feet will thank you!

Get to the festival early each day.

Stop by the merchandise tent first thing because items sell out fast. If you want to ride the rides, get there early or risk missing sets while standing in line! Some rides you will be waiting for an hour or more at peak times, so choose the ones you want to ride the most quickly!

Consider a mobile charging locker to store your merchandise and other items in!

If you bring all of your sealed items in on the first day (wipes, chapstick, cigarettes, gum, tampons, etc), you can keep them all in your locker overnight and not have to worry about getting three of each sealed item to bring in every single day.

Remember to hide your lock from people who may peer over your shoulder or look at your combination wristband and try to get into your locker. Remain vigilant inside the festival!

Time-stamp your texts! If you have a large crew and need to split up to see different sets, plan a meeting spot!

There will be cell service congestion. Stamping your texts will help your friends know whenever you truly sent a message!

When planning a meeting spot, make sure to pick a location that is stationary like the locker area, the cooling area, or one of the buildings in EDC Town. Don’t be one of those people who tried to meet “under the daisy” that ended up getting moved a few years back.

Bring an external battery pack!

If you are someone who likes to take a lot of photo and video you’ll need the extra juice. These will definitely make sure that you can get ahold of your friends and take some epic shots.

Don’t forget to hydrate!

After you get your merchandise and put it in your locker, your next stop should be one of the four free water stands to fill up your hydration pack or water bottle. It’s very important to remain hydrated, especially while the sun is still out and bearing down on you! If you tip some of the vendors, they will give you ice if the warm water turns you off.

Tired of water? Buy a smoothie or a lemonade. They are a nice change of pace from warm hydrant water. The fresh fruit smoothies are absolutely delicious too!

If you need to eat something, consider the food trucks instead of the concession stands.

The food trucks have their company name out there and on the line when compared to the generic concession stand items, the quality of the food is unparalleled. Don’t make the same mistake as I did last year and get a raw onion sandwich masked as a “cheese steak”.

Bring earplugs! Tinnitus sucks!

This goes without saying, but get more information on great options for ear protection here. Seriously, protect your damn eardrums okay?

Wear sunscreen!

Remember, if you are staying up all night the sun is up at 5AM and starts beaming down on you almost immediately. If you’re attending a pool party, you should be applying sunscreen before heading out each day too.

EDC is a marathon, not a sprint.

If you are going to drink alcohol, do so in moderation and stay hydrated! For every alcoholic drink you have, you should drink 8-16oz of water next to keep your body functioning well.

Emergen-C packets are a lifesaver. Take one before the festival every night in order to help you recover from the night before and prepare for the festival ahead.

Don’t forget to take some time to take it all in.

Look up and enjoy the fireworks! Head to the top of the stairs to get that insane view of the entire speedway. Send a postcard to your house from the EDC Town Post Office too.

Don’t forget about the EDC Parade down Rainbow Road every night. You should at least try to check it out one time out of the three nights you are there!

Follow your favorite artists on social media.

You’ll be the first to know if they may show up unannounced (pls Kaskade), or if they are doing any surprise sets on one of the art cars or somewhere hidden.

If you are feeling at all dehydrated or anything else medical related, visit one of the medical tents.

The medical staff is super friendly and you WILL NOT get in trouble for seeking medical treatment, no matter your condition. If you can’t make it to the medical tent, look for a Ground Control staff member to assist you or any of your friends! Look out for your fellow ravers. If you see something, say something! This will keep everyone safe and having a good time.

If you are going to do drugs, and especially MDMA, test it before you take it, please.

Do not buy drugs at the festival. Seriously, just don’t do it. Not only do you risk getting bunk goods, but undercover cops are all over too. If you plan on partaking in festivities, please be safe. Test everything you plan on taking because the cost of a test kit is far less than a trip to the hospital. You can even use an Amazon Locker to get your kits sent to Las Vegas safely!

Bring baby wipes with you.

As it is common with all festivals the porta-potties will run out of toilet paper. It’s just a fact of the festival scene and many times they don’t get resupplied either. You will thank me if you get caught in this situation.

Hand fans can keep you seriously cool!

Crowds inside the festival can get pretty hot and people will love you. These are inexpensive and a great way to make new friends.

Wear a bandana inside the festival.

Tie it around your neck for each night you are out there. Put it over your mouth and nose when the dust gets to be too much. Your lungs will thank you, plus you get to look like a bandit. It’s a win-win situation.

Trains of people are going to happen, so use them to your advantage.

Become the caboose to go into or out of the crowds and use your manners! Excuse me and thank you go a long way when navigating the crowd!

Bring good vibes, leave the judgment at the gates, and most of all, enjoy yourself and smile!

EDC Las Vegas is a glorious wonderland of fun. Bring the good vibes with you, and you’ll get them in return. If you follow these tips you will have a great time, I promise!

Oh, and don’t forget to call your Dad on Father’s Day before you head out for night 3!
