The original Electric Daisy Carnival in Los Angeles grew criticism during the year 2010. It was widely reported that several underage minors managed to attend the festival, many of whom ended up injured after consuming drugs or alcohol. After a 15 years old girl died from an ecstasy overdose at the festival, the City of Los Angeles to allow admittance to these events only to those over the age of 18. The 15-year-old ecstasy controversy in combination with a scandal between the LA Memorial Coliseum and Insomniac were enough reasons for EDC to say good riddance to the City of Angels. Insomniac picked up shop and brought their carnival act to the bright lights of Las Vegas. The16th annual Electric Daisy Carnival took place at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway for 3 days between June 8th through June10th. The music festival pulled in over 300,000 people and featured over100 EDM artists from around the world.

EDC is no longer just an electronic music festival; it has grown into a full-fledged entertainment experience. The only problem Insomniac has moving forward is “How will they continue to out-shine the previous year of Electric Daisy Carnival?”

This was the first year EDC was taken to New York.

EDC expanded very quickly. It was first held in1997 at the Shrine Expo Hall in Los Angeles where 5000 ravers packed the hall. Originally set as a California only event, these days the Electric Daisy Carnival is held in many different places. EDC can now be found in Colorado, Texas, Puerto Rico, Florida, and even the Garden State of New Jersey.

Despite the occasional problems regarding drug use, the Electric Daisy Carnival is still widely regarded as a positive influence on its attendees. Just like any good thing, a few bad eggs can spoil the bunch. For the lion share of attendees, the Electric Daisy Carnival is a safe haven where people come together for the love of electronic dance music.

2012

LOCATION: Met Life Stadium (East Rutherford, NJ)

The Electric Daisy Carnival is one of the world’s largest electronic dance music festivals. In fact, it has the highest attendance of any music festival of its kind outside Europe, leading some to dub it “The American Ibiza”.

This year’s EDC festival at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway is expected to have over 350,000. Insomniac also announced the addition of an EDC in London to their line of events.

The Main Group ABOUT THE PEOPLE I’LL PROBABLY SPEND THE MOST TIME WITH IN VEGAS.

COURTNEY

and

WILL

If I had to be a third wheel for anyone, anytime I would be the third wheel for these guys. They’re some of the best friends I’ve ever had. and everyday that I spend with them I have the time of my life. I’ve known them since before they started dating but now they are engaged and Courtney is pregnant. They didn’t plan it very well because now she is going to be way pregnant when we’re in Vegas but I know we’ll still have an awsome time together. When they found out they were having a baby girl they texted me right away and I was super excited. I call her my baby too. Hopefully they’ll be in my life forever since, you know, EDC friends are forever friends.

COLIN My boyfriend. We met at an event called Dance to the Future held at the FOX Theater in Pomona, CA. We were standing next to each other in the entrance line and he hasn’t left my side since. He still lives in California for his job. EDC is one of the few times I will get to spend time with him this summer. Although he will be joining me in Utah shortly and we plan on going to tons of huge events together like EDC during the upcoming years. The scene brought us together and we will always be loyal to it for that reason.

CAR C BAYLEE ANN TYRELL COOLEY JESUS ESCOBAR

My best friend. When I first moved to Utah I didn’t know anyone and I didn’t even have a car. I needed a ride to EMF, an event in Salt Lake City. I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to see DJ Isaac live, so I hit up some random people from Utah on Plurlife, an EDM social networking site. Shortly after asking, Scott offered to give me a ride to my first rave in Utah. And that is how the “infamous Cotton and Scott” came to be. When we’re in the same room its just constant silliness and laughing. The EDC would definately not be the same experience without him.
