The Electric Daisy Carnival (EDC) is an electronic dance music festival and its flagship event is held in Las Vegas, Nevada.
The event has featured renowned EDM producers and DJ’s like Armin van Buuren, Calvin Harris, Hardwell, Alesso, Martin Garrix, Zedd, Afrojack, Tiesto and more. Various types of electronic music are incorporated into the festival, with Corona, Smirnoff and Uber sponsoring.
The mission of the EDC has always been to inspire individuals. Audiences can also experience 3D superstructures, environments glowing in the dark and all manner of LED-infused flora and fauna.
Part of the unforgettable experience are the interactive art installations scattered throughout EDC and the thrilling, as well as relaxing rides. The goal is ultimately for EDC to be a place where people can connect, on and off the dance floor. This event welcomes everyone, not discriminating against shape, size, and color.
In 2009, EDC became a two-day event, and in 2011, a three-day event in Las Vegas that drew 230,000 people. In 2015, it drew more than 400,000 over three days (134,000 per day).
In 2017, EDC won the Festival of the Year award at the Electronic Music Awards.
