announced the dates for the next installment of the Electric Daisy Carnival
today. EDC 2013 returns to the Las Vegas Motor Speedway
June 21, 22, 23. On Nov. 7 at 12 p.m. PST, a "very limited" pre-sale is happening on promoter Insomniac's website. Three-day General Admission tickets available at $199, then $259, and three-day VIP tickets available at $450, until allotments run out. More details on next year's EDC were also revealed today.
Regular tickets will go on sale Jan 9. at 12 p.m. PST. So far no lineup has been announced. EDC Week will also return to Vegas next year according to a statement released by Insomniac. As the event rolls into it's 17th year, attendance numbers from 2012--as many as 320,000 fans altogether according to Insomniac-- made it North America's largest festival of any genre that apparently sold out "weeks" before the event this year. At it's peak, the festival boasted 115,000 guests at one time.
According to the Insomniac statement issued today, several improvements are being made to accomodate next year's carnival goers.Fan and artist shuttles as well as taxis to and from the Las Vegas Motor Speedway will have a newly dedicated route in 2013 to minimize the impact on individual traffic. The parking staff has been increased in order to move and park cars more quickly in and out of the lots, and there will be additional lanes in and out of the event. Additional adjustments to enhance the guest experience and relieve transportation congestion outside of the event are already being planned and tested for implementation during the 2013 festival.
Stay tuned for more info as it develops. Until then, have your pasties, arm kandi and neon bikini wear ready to go!
