Electric Daisy Carnival (EDC)
When and Where: May 17-18 (New York), May 24-26 (Chicago), June 21-23 (Las Vegas), TBA (Puerto Rico), TBA (Orlando)
The 411: Like most great festivals, EDC started off as a one-venue gig started up by dance mogul powerhouse, Insomniac Events. Fast forward five years later, and it boasts a crowd of over 300,000 people and is hosted in six different cities.
People You’ll Meet: Ravers, Spring Breakers, EDM fanatics
Expect: The creative kaleidoscope of Burning Man fused with the funds of a big corporation, so basically there’s an amusement park at a concert.
History Highlight: Insomniac and EDC received much negative press after two deaths occurred during the event.
