EDC1 300x199 Electric Daisy Carnival (EDC)

Electric Daisy Carnival, also known as EDC, is the largest Electronic Dance Music Festival in the Western United States. The Music Festival has had a complicated past, moving its primary location from Los Angels (where EDC originated) to Las Vegas, Nevada during the second weekend of June. EDC has also become America’s first major touring EDM Music Festival. The Electric Daisy Carnival is hosted by the production company, Insomniac Events, and has toured in California, Colorado, Florida, Nevada, New Jersey, Texas, and Puerto Rico. 2012 proved to re-define Electric Daisy Carnival when the Music Festival sold out it’s main Las Vegas venue with over 250,000+ tickets sold.

Los Angels/Las Vegas Controversy

EDC originated in Los Angels in 1997 and expanded to various venues across LA along with it’s attendance numbers. As Electric Daisy Carnival grew, so did its notoriety as the largest EDM Music Festival outside of Europe. In 2010 Electric Daisy Carnival had multiple complications in the main host-city of Los Angels including a backlash from the city regarding rampent drug use, over capacity, and deaths when the festivals over-attendance caused rioting. The festival then moved to Las Vegas to a much larger venue, the Las Vegas Motor Speedway where EDC continues to define itself as the largest EDM Music Festival in the Americas.
