Countdown to Electric Daisy Carnival Las Vegas

By in News / June 6, 2012 12:08 am

Can you believe it? We’ve been dreaming of carnival clowns, marching bands and toxic bunnies for months. Now it’s time to turn those dreams into reality.

We’re just days away from the 16th annual Electric Daisy Carnival, set for June 8-10 at the Las Vegas Speedway. Over 300,000 people will attend this sold out event, winner of the Best International Dance Festival award at the 2011 Ibiza DJ Awards. For many, this is the Mecca of all electronic music events in the US and beyond.

EDC Week has already kicked off in Vegas, which includes a growing list of club shows and pool parties, along with the first annual EDMbiz, a conference exploring the business side of electronic music.

While organizers have spent the last year putting together the overwhelming logistics of the event, crews have been working around the clock for the past week to piece together the stages and carnival set we’ll all be enjoying this weekend.

Here’s a little sneak peak of the progress of the build:

And here’s the official EDC 2012 pre-movie:
