Electric Daisy Carnival, otherwise known as EDC, is perhaps the biggest electronic dance music festival in the world. It is held every year in Las Vegas, Nevada, and is attended by thousands of visitors every year. The festival is known for its theme – a high-energy, nightclub-style party atmosphere. Every year, top DJs from around the world attend the festival to set the tone for the rest of the season. In past years, top-shelf talent has also performed at the festival, bringing the biggest crowds to the show.
Now, the annual edition of the festival is being celebrated with a special one-of-a-kind theme. This year’s edition promises a true high-energy atmosphere with huge open spaces and “upside down” music. The main stage will be set on a retractable stage that resembles a giant warehouse. Music lovers will feel like they’ve step into another dimension, one that is reminiscent of a nightclub. Lighting will be spectacular, with a stage bounce lighting system featuring LED lights similar to what you see at major dance parties.
Other additions this year are the Ultra Light Stage and the Lumberyard Stage. Each features a high-definition video screen on which artists can perform including acts from across the world. Another exciting feature is the interactive inflatable moonwalk that stretches out and falls on the floor. Performers on the floor can interact with fans and fellow festival goers and take in the sights and sounds of the party.
EDM Las Vegas is host to numerous other events as well. One of the most popular of these is the Electronic Dance Music (EDM) Music Festival. Held every year at the Venetian in Las Vegas, the Festival attracts hundreds of visitors who love electronic music, but also those who love dancing. This multi-day festival provides an experience not available at any other venue in the city.
Performers will include DJs and live music bands. Some of the top talent in the world will be performing such high-end electronic rock as electronica, classical, and even hip hop and pop. Some of the best-known names in the music industry have graced the stages of these festivals, including U2, Akon, Coldplay, Rihanna, and many others.
For those interested in electronic dance, the Festival is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. EDM Las Vegas is an internationally known celebration of electronic dance music. Every year, world-famous DJs and live music bands set up shop in the Venetian and give away a concert that is sold out within hours. Music lovers young and old travel from faraway locations just to catch this incredible festival. The Festival brings the best of the world to las Vegas.
Another reason to attend the Festival is to experience the many shows that take place throughout the event. While every show is different, there are numerous shows that are similar to each other. Other electronic dance events may be held simultaneously with the festival so that people can experience all the rave, hip-hop, break dance, techno, and other styles of electronic music. The festival is not just for people interested in electronic dance music, it is for everyone who loves to experience new and exciting shows.
In addition to all of the above, the festival offers free shows that are unlike anything else you have ever seen before. All shows are set up in gyms and large outdoor arenas. The electronic music sets in these venues are made up of world class sound systems and some of the best DJ’s in the world.
The festival also features a family program that features musicals and free dance music performances by local groups and international acts. You will also find a children’s area with interactive exhibits featuring puppets, face paintings, musical theater, and more. This area is geared more towards children than adults. At the end of the night, the Las Vegas Raceway carnival is held, which is another attraction filled with fun for all ages.
One of the biggest draws at the festival is of course the talent that performs. Over 40 local artists set up shop in the grandstands and on the main dance floors of the festival. The artists are brought in by local DJs who promote their shows through the Festival. They set up shop around the perimeter of the festival grounds, selling their CD’s and set up listening parties.
One of the highlights of the entire event is the VIP packages. VIPs get first pick of the best seats and the best times to enter the festival. The VIPs also get an early head start on the day of the festival. The VIPs enjoy everything from free wrist tattoos (to be applied by a professional artist) to a free drink or food every single night. If you are willing to invest a little bit of money into the experience, you may want to consider a package that includes a Las Vegas hotel stay as well. Not only will you be able to attend more than one electronic dance music show, you may also end up saving a little money as hotel prices continue to go down.
