Popular Insomniac EDM Festival Is June 17-19
The Electric Daisy Carnival, or EDC, is back in Las Vegas for 2016, and promoter Insomniac is promising it to be “the most creative and immersive experience to date.”
And speaking of dates, it’s June 17-19.
“Seeing the growth of EDC over the last 20 years has been an amazing experience, one I am truly grateful for,” said Pasquale Rotella, Founder and CEO of Insomniac.
“To commemorate two decades of incredible memories, I want to give dance music fans the journey of a lifetime. Without their passion and support, EDC would not be what it is today. I can’t wait for everyone to see what we have in store for 2016!”
More than 400,000 people attended the 2015 event and tickets sold out well in advance.
Tickets for EDC Las Vegas 2016 go on sale Monday, Sept. 21 at Noon PT, months sooner than in past years to ensure fans have the lowest admission price possible.
Starting on October 1, 2016, all passes purchased will be subject to a 9 percent tax due to the passage of the amended Live Entertainment Tax (LET) in the city of Las Vegas. Fans are encouraged to purchase tickets early to avoid the tax pricing and ensure their passes to this year’s event.
First tier 3-day general admission passes start at the Early Owl price of $335 plus fees while VIP 3-day passes are priced at $699 plus fees. Last year’s VIP amenities for EDC Las Vegas included a separate entrance for expedited entry, elevated viewing decks at multiple stages, private bars and restroom facilities, high-end dining options, wifi hot spots, access to exclusive lounges and more.
Single day tickets will not be available for this three-day experience. Layaway pricing options will be available for all ticket types. Further on-sale details and shuttle information are now available at ElectricDaisyCarnival.com.
Hotel deals, details on EDC Week and the fifth annual EDMbiz Conference will be announced in the coming months.
