Insomniac has released the camping map for Electric Daisy Carnival Las Vegas’ inaugural camping season, just days after Pasquale Rotella took to Facebook to announce that camping details were soon to come. The campground will accommodate campers via showers, restrooms, a medical tent, and a bar, all specific to the campground area.
Campers will be divided among four principal camp sections, Ruby, Citrine, Amethyst, Sapphire, and Moonstone. There will also be a Geode camp for those with RVs.
The campground’s sweet spot arrives in the form of a communal section intended for camper socialization. Entitled “The Mesa,” the area is the host of the Sol, Cascada, and Tierra Tents, as well as an Oasis Pool, a go kart racing track, a roller rink, zen garden, team sports court, farmer’s market, and more.
EDC Las Vegas will be held from May 18-20. Purchase tickets to the festival here.
For the first time ever, EDC Las Vegas attendees will be able to camp under the electric sky via Camp EDC. Insomniac has decided to bring camping amenities to the internationally renowned festival to give patrons a more comprehensive experience, though not in the traditional down-in-the-mud format one might expect.
With new festival dates falling in the middle May, 17–21, mitigating the Las Vegas desert heat, camping is no longer out of the question — just in case, Camp EDC will offer air conditioned tents, misting stations, and daytime pool parties with a walk up bar.
Additionally EDC campers can also partake in an array of colorful activities over the extended weekend: go-kart racing, kandi-making, yoga, rave aerobics, hula-hoop classes, and sound baths, to name a few. Campers will also get exclusive access to the Thursday night kickoff pool party, with surprise DJ sets, among other live entertainment.
Ever since EDC Las Vegas 2017 ended, Pasquale Rotella has been teasing news of an announcement that will totally revolutionize the Electric Daisy Carnival Las Vegas experience. Today, Pasquale Rotella and Insomniac Events have finally revealed what all of the hype has been about. EDC Las Vegas will return in the 2018 year on a

In an Instagram Live address to his fans on August 6th, Electric Daisy Carnival‘s owner and poster boy, Pasquale Rotella, discussed myriad issues concerning the dance music industry, his company Insomniac, and it’s relationship to HARD Events, and big changes on the horizon for EDC structuring and mission. Here are a few keys highlights from the address.
EDC New York may not be returning. The company is putting forth new efforts to desaturate the U.S. festival market that it helped to over inflate, focusing more on “quality over quantity of festivals.” This also means downsizing certain festivals like Nocturnal Wonderland from a three-day festival to a more boutique, limited capacity sized event.
Focus will be put on EDC Las Vegas’s transportation system, especially leaving the festival. Rotella doesn’t want to make an official public statements until all changes are solidified. However, EDM Sauce ventures to conjecture that major changes may include the rumored possible future venue change to Las Vegas’ new NFL stadium.
EDC will not move to two weekends and will not be changing the experience inside the festival. Rotella emphasized that the EDC brand and experience will always stand for electronic dance music, stressing that attendees likely won’t be seeing hip-hop on the lineup beyond producers bringing out live guest appearances, a decision that belongs to the artist.
Pasquale spoke to Hard Summer Music Festival founder Gary Richards leaving HARD Presents for LiveStyle. Rotella clarified that Insomniac has actually owned HARD for the past few years, based on a creative partnership Insomniac has with Live Nation Entertainment, the event conglomerate who purchased HARD from Gary Richards in 2012. HARD was able to operate on its own up until this year when Richard’s contract ran out.
In a market that is ever changing and expanding, the desire to maintain control, festival experience, and ultimately attendee safety is perpetually pressing. After this year’s unfortunate, presumed heat-related fatality, Rotella has since revealed in an interview with Review Journal that scheduling the festival around the coolest weather is a top priority.
As a result, Pasquale Rotella is reportedly considering moving the event to Memorial Day weekend of 2018, although at this point, nothing as of yet is confirmed.

Last month, K?d played his inaugural EDC set on the Cosmic Meadow stage and the hour-long offering is now live on Soundcloud. The producer’s bass-heavy debut at Las Vegas Motor Speedway includes a mix of originals alongside fresh reworks of Daft Punk, RL Grime, Porter Robinson and more. The soundscapes in K?d’s high energy set range from feel good future bass to the glitchy techno of his collaboration with Rezz, “Fourth Impact.”
Making the debut extra special, the rising artist revealed on Instagram that he attended EDC last year as his “first ever festival.” Over the past year, the young producer has seen a meteoric rise in his career with accomplishments including opening for The Chainsmokers on their Memories… Do Not Open tour and sets at Paradiso, Buku Music & Art Project and Phoenix Lights.

Two weeks have passed since the 2017 edition of EDC Las Vegas. While Insomniac founder Pasquale Rotella has promised that “big changes” for Electric Daisy Carnival are on the horizon, there is still value in looking back at the most recent run of the festival.
One particularly dedicated Reddit user, operating under the handle /u/stealthyd3vil, has decided to reminisce upon EDC 2017 in an impressive fashion. The Redditor undertook the momentous feat of compiling a playlist of every song played at the festival that is available on Spotify.
Inevitably, the list is incomplete due to the number of unreleased and unidentified tracks which were featured in sets from EDC’s lineup of over 200 artists. However, the end result of /u/stealthyd3vil’s endeavor is a diverse collection which spans over 120 hours across almost 1800 songs, handily making it the most comprehensive way to relive the festival’s soundtrack.
