The Electric Daisy Carnival, or EDC, has revealed a massive, star-studded lineup of artists set to perform at the electronic dance music festival, now in its 23rd year. The three day concert, which is scheduled for the weekend of May 17 through 19, has officially announced a day-by-day stage lineup.
Grammy-nominated rapper A$AP Rocky will be featured as a part of Saturday’s performances. Other major names that were previously announced as headliners include David Guetta, Idris Elba, DeadMau5, Diplo, Steve Aoki, Martin Garrix and Armin Van Buuren. Alesso, Zeds Dead, Alison Wonderland, Snakehips, Dillon Francis, Illenium, Paul Oakenfold, Paul Van Dyk, and Jamie Jonesare also among the almost 300 artists scheduled to take the stage.
Performances will take place across eight different stages. Alesso, Alison Wonderland, Dillon Francis, and Diplo will take over Kinetic Field stage, A$AP Rocky can be found on the Cosmic Meadow stage, and Cash Cash will perform on the Circuit Grounds along with Steve Aoki and Zeds Dead. Neon Garden will feature Alan Fitzpatrick and Drumcode, Basspad is set to host Adventure Club and Black Tiger Sex Machine, and Wasteland will include sets from Adrenalize and Crime Family. John O’Callaghan and Dillon Nathaniel can be found on the Quantum Valley and Stereobloom stages, respectively.
EDC was created to inspire people with music and art, the festival’s website reads, noting that attendees can experience the three-dimensional superstructures, colorful, glow-in-the-dark environments, and LED-infused flora and fauna. Interactive art installations scattered throughout the festival and rides are also a part of the multimedia, multi-sensory experience.
The first Electric Daisy Carnival rave started off as a warehouse party in the early 1990’s at an open field in Los Angeles by Gary Richards and DJ Mr. Koolaid. In 2017, EDC won the Festival of the Year award at the Electronic Music Awards and back in 2015, the festival drew more than 400,000 people.
EDC will be held at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway located at 7000 North Las Vegas Boulevard. The opening ceremony, hosted by Bill Nye, will start at 4 p.m.
