EDC 2018 Announcements and Changes

Already missing the adrenaline rush under the electric sky? Well, you’ll still have to wait a bit for the next EDC but it will be one month shorter than usual. Headlining a number of changes for the acclaimed best EDM music festival in the world, the event dates will be pushed a month earlier to May 18-20, 2017. While this may mean bad news for high school and college students who will be having their finals, it is music to the ears of other ravers. An earlier date allows for a more forgiving climate in the hot deserts of sin city. On top of that, the opening ceremony will be extended by one hour each day, meaning more time getting turnt and vibe out before the main events.

An recently constructed additional lane in the immediate area of the Speedway will alleviate traffic in and out of the area. If that is still not good enough for you, EDC 2018 will actually allow camping and RVs to stay overnight on site!

Tents available for rent:

  • Air-conditioned GA tents decked out with dust-control canvas walls, comfortable artificial grass, and electrical outlets for up to six attendees 
  • Air-conditioned Premier tent complete with dust-control canvas walls, comfortable artificial grass, twin or queen-sized beds, linens, pillows, towels, tables, chairs, and lights for up to two or four attendees

For RVs, you can either drive your own to the site or rent one fully equipped with linens and pillows, courtesy of Insomniac.

EDC prices may be going up every year but hey, it’s one of those magical things in life that you really shouldn’t miss. Tickets for EDC Las Vegas 2018 go on sale Thursday, September. 28 at 12 p.m. PT at electricdaisycarnival.com.

For now, you can watch this trailer by Insomniac to get a glimpse of what to expect.
