Music fest fans all over the world know Electric Daisy Carnival rocks out in Las Vegas each year! What some partiers may not know is where this crazy daisy chain all got started. Read on to get a brief EDC history.
Sometime back in the early 90s, in the heyday of butterfly clips, DayGlo and Fatboy Slim, Gary Richards and DJ Mr. Koolaid took a rave in a warehouse somewhere in LA to a field in Pacoima. As the early years went on, EDC moved to bigger and better venues, across LA and beyond, with festivals ultimately reaching Orlando, Florida, New York, Aurora, Colorado and its new headquarters, Sin City itself, Las Vegas.
The show didn’t get its iconic name until 1997 at the Shrine Expo Hall in LA, pitched by Phillip Blaine and approved by the founders themselves.
EDC hosts the finest of electronic music artists from all eras and walks of life, not the least of which are Calvin Harris, Seven Lions, Yellow Claw, Afrojack and more.
In addition to music, the EDC is home to trippy, bright art. Wild 3D sculptures, animals, and plants feeling the glow of LED lights of every color are everywhere. Outside the dance floor and interactive art are the thrill rides; there really is something for everyone at EDC.
EDC is a festival of art, color and unforgettable music driven by positivity and the limits of the artistic imagination. Everyone is welcome to feel the love and positive vibes – no matter your size, your orientation, your skin color – none of it matters!
So strap in, ravers, dreamers and lovers, EDC is one wild ride! You can get tickets online, check out this year’s amazing lineup, get a sneak peek at the incredible art that decorates the desert and much, much more at https://lasvegas.electricdaisycarnival.com. We’ll see you there.
