Three Nights of Light Shows and Bass



    Back in the 70s, there was Woodstock. Today, there’s Electric Daisy Carnival.

    On Friday through Sunday, the Las Vegas Motor Speedway will be hosting the United States’ largest electronic dance and music festival, Electric Daisy Carnival.

    Due to dozens of arrests, hundreds of drug overdoses and a minor’s death, the Los Angeles Coliseum turned down the offer to host the rave this year.

    It seems that this year, Insomniac Events -- the production company that hosts Electric Daisy Carnival -- has every base covered. This year at the Motor Speedway, thousands of people in imaginative and bedazzled outfits will be able to participate in the total insomniac experience.

    The Motor Speedway was designed to accommodate over 100,000 people each day, about nine times larger than what the LA Coliseum was able to hold. Also, equipped with five huge air-conditioning zones, and a 140 x 300-foot Misting Tent, the Vegas heat should not be a problem.

    As in previous years, six main stages will host over 200 world-renowned DJ’s and house music artists over the course of three days.  This generation’s youth thrives on electronic music.

    Compared to the LA Coliseum, the Motor Speedway’s less restrictive pyrotechnic regulations allow for bigger and better fireworks and light shows that intensify DJ performances. The electronic music and stunning light displays will be open for viewing from 8 p.m. until sunrise each day.

    Three-day general tickets, single-day VIP tickets, and three-day VIP tickets are still available for purchase. A dollar from each ticket sold will be donated to various philanthropic organizations as well.

    Tons of carnival rides, beautiful art installations, theatrics, and decorations give this event culture.
