Electric Daisy Carnival 2018 is going to be unlike anything ever before!

Insomniac has announced that North America’s largest dance music festival will take place from dusk until dawn with a brand new date, Friday, May 18 – Sunday, May 20, with extended hours and much more. EDC will return to Las Vegas Motor Speedway with an early-entry opening ceremony, multiple camping options, new stage designs, a new shuttle operator, and for an enhanced experience under the Electric Sky!

For the first time in EDC’s 22-year history, the music festival will offer camping options:

• Rent an air-conditioned GA tent decked out with dust-control canvas walls, comfortable artificial grass, and electrical outlets for up to six attendees, max
• Rent an 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, max
• Bring your own RV and hook it up to the pre-arranged power on-site
• Rent an RV fully set up and ready for arrival, complete with linens and pillows provided by Insomniac

With all these changes, some things will remain the same — 400,000 “headliners” will come together over three days to explore the breathtaking spectacle of EDC Las Vegas amidst a community of accepting, music-loving individuals celebrating peace, positivity, and creativity.

Tickets go onsale Thursday, Sept. 28 at 12 p.m. PT via electricdaisycarnival.com.

Pasquale Rotella On EDC 2018 Changes

“EDC Las Vegas is more than just a festival—it’s a community without boundaries, a celebration of life, art and dance music culture. We strive to make every year better than the last, and after a lot of brainstorming and feedback from our community, we have decided to move next year’s festival to May 18, 19 and 20. This way we can enjoy cooler weather, the gates can open earlier, and we can hold a very special opening ceremony each day at cosmicMEADOW. I’m also excited to announce that for the first time ever at EDC we’ll be building an immersive camping experience right next to the Speedway, which will eliminate traffic all together for campers. Shuttle operations will be handed over to an independent company that specializes in the largest music and sporting events in the country. This is what they do and they do it better than anyone else, year over year. I’m looking forward to revealing what this exciting next chapter of EDC Las Vegas will look like in the months to come.” — Pasquale Rotella, Founder and CEO of Insomniac
