Some 3-day tickets are still available but they have been on sale to the public since November. A limited amount of single-day tickets are said to be available closer to festival dates. You can find them here.

EDC began as a small festival almost two decades ago in Los Angeles and has grown to one of the largest in the world. It’s estimated more than 300,000 attendees will flood to Vegas for this festival, awarded “Best International Dance Festival” at the 2011 Ibiza DJ Awards.

“I’ll have over 500 theatrical performers,” Rotella teased in his video posted on “Over 30 carnival rides, hundreds of EDM acts, large-scale art installations, tons of special effects, massive enough fireworks to rival the Olympics … plus much, much, more.”
