As the sun rose on Sunday June 10, people began to start their cars and say goodbye to their ultimate experience. The Electric Daisy Carnival held at the Las Vegas Speedway has become a Las Vegas phenomenon. The carnival was held on June 8-10.
The massive lineup, spread over three nights, included four roster artists and six single artists, including: Chuckie, Flux Pavilion, Doctor P, and Martin Solveig. Our own artists and countless others supported Big Beat, playing notable tracks during their sets such as, Martin Solveig’s “The Night Out”, Knife Party’s “Rage Valley” and “Internet Friends”, Porter Robinson’s “Language”, Skrillex & The Doors’ “Breakn’ A Sweat”, and Flux Pavilion’s “I Can’t Stop” and “Daydreamer”.
The carnival was full of surprises for everyone. On Saturday, the largest biggest surprise was probably the weather. Winds in excess of 50mph caused the festival to shut down at 1am, cancelling many sets including that of Doctor P. Carnival goers were shocked at the new. Many were disappointed because they would not get to see their favorite DJs. However, Martin Solveig took to the main stage at 9pm to a crowd of well over 50,000 people.
On Sunday, Chuckie took the main stage blasting his revered style of Dirty Dutch. His latest single, “Breaking Up” featuring Amanda Wilson with Promise Land was a MASSIVE hit.
Flux Pavilion closed out The Electric Daisy Carnival in Las Vegas on the neonGARDEN stage on Sunday at 4am. In Despite of the time, at least 15,000-20,000 people remained ready to rage for the final hour and a half of the festival. As the close approached, (at around 5:30 a.m.) the entire crowed remained. Flux thanked the crowd for being a part of what he described as a “monumental moment in his career” with a heartfelt bow and wave to the crowd.
Overall, EDC Las Vegas has become one of the most popular events known to our city. Locals and tourist have made this a phenomenon that will continue to escalate. Las Vegas will continue to rage every summer!
