Electric Daisy Carnival (EDC) Las Vegas in an electronic music festival in the United States. Now one of the world's largest and most renowned, the festival draws crowds of almost half a million over the course of three days.

Musically, the main focus is on EDM and house; but there is also room on the lineup for techno, dubstep, trap, drum & bass, hardstyle and more, as over 250 artists make their way to the Nevada desert to play one of the many stages in the Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

Las Vegas Motor Speedway
7000 N. Las Vegas Blvd.
Las Vegas, NV
United States

Located about 15 miles northeast of the city's famous 'Strip', the Las Vegas Motor Speedway is a 1200 acre complex of motorsports tracks. It has been home to EDC since the 2011 relocation from LA.


The Specs

The Parking lots open at 5:00 pm and show times are from 7:00 pm – 5:30 am. Those that know the desert know it will take place rain, dust storm, or shine. 

Your festival pass must be worn at all times and we know people that have been booted because they were wearing a broken wrist band so be careful so you don't waste a day trying to get a new one.

Line-up and set times are subject to change and all attendees are subject to search upon entry.

Full details can be found directly on the EDC Website.
