Electric Daisy Carnival Announces 2013 Dates, Plans to Relieve Traffic Congestion
The dance music festival is slated to make its 17th annual appearance next June at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. Last year's event drew over 320,000 attendees.
Electric Daisy Carnival, the music festival that helped put EDM (electronic dance music) on the mainstream map, will return to Las Vegas for another round of sensory overload. The audio-visual extravaganza will take place June 21 - 23, 2013 at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway, promoters Insomniac announced on Thursday.
Pasquale Rotella, the CEO of Insomniac, calls it "the largest gathering of music fans in North America." In a statement announcing next year's dates, Rotella adds that "the energy, love, and sense of community surpassed anything we have ever experienced."
Following its successful debut appearance last summer, Insomniac plans to hold its annual EDC Week, featuring weeklong festivities to take place at nightclubs and dayclubs and a music conference, called EDM Biz.
Thanks to last year's EDC, the festival and EDM revelers helped infuse the local economy with some $207 million in spending. Over 320,000 attended the festival and its surrounding activities. Insomniac is planning to accomodate even more fans in 2013, by dedicating a new taxi route to shuttle as many ticket holders and artists as possible to the venue. Staff for parking and safety have been increased as well, to enhance guest experience by relieving traffic congestion.
Tickets for the three-day fest go on sale starting Nov. 7 and a variety of package plans are being offered, including layaway pricing.
