On Friday, Electric Daisy Carnival kicks off in Las Vegas, Nevada and lasts until June 23. The festival is bound to be one of the hottest of the summer ... literally, as temperatures are expected to reach 100 degrees throughout the weekend. Performers will grace all eight stages of the arena, Las Vegas Motor Speedway, from dawn until dusk.
Concert Officials reported that all available tickets — a whopping 345,000 — were sold out, and 115,000 electric dance music fans are expected to show up each day, reported the Huffington Post. Headliners Afrojack, Armin van Buuren, Avicii, Tiesto, Hardwell, Eric Prydz, Sander van Doorn, and Calvin Harris are some of the biggest names in EDM. Offering entertainment beyond the stages' electronic music and bright lights, the festival also features a fireworks show and a huge Ferris wheel.
Previously set in Los Angeles, EDC moved its annual spot to Las Vegas in 2010 after a 15-year-old girl died and 114 people were arrested for drug possession and other charges of misconduct. Last year, two attendees died in Vegas, according to Rolling Stone magazine, but the festival is still on.
