Ready your body, because the biggest EDM event in the country just announced its fully loaded lineup, and it’s going to blow you away.
Electric Daisy Carnival in Sin City, Las Vegas, only weeks after releasing a glittering promo movie showcasing their spectacular venue and stages, just announced their performing artists as well as which stages they will be playing on.
For a little bit of history, EDC began nearly two decades ago in 1997 in New York City. The festival is now an event abroad with locations in Tokyo, Sao Paulo (Brazil), Milton Keynes (England), and with multiple US locations in Orlando, Chicago, and now Las Vegas. Ever since the show changed locations from L.A. to Vegas, that site is now considered to be the matchless EDC experience.
As they have done in years before using the Night Owl Radio show, the festival used a mix of clips from artist’s tracks to reveal the lineups for all eight stages. The lineup from each stage, as announced by Night Owl and reported by Dancing Astronaut, are available below. Descriptions of all stages and all that follows are taken directly from Dancing Astronaut.
