Going to Electric Daisy Carnival? You'll be with at least 85,000 of your closest friends. Tried and failed to score single day tickets to the first two days of June's mega-rave? Join the other crowd.

Event producer Insomniac reports that in just the first two days of sales, the Las Vegas fest has broken all their previous records with more than 85,000 tix sold in 48 hours.

General admission tickets to Electric Daisy Carnival went on sale Saturday and single day tix for the first two days (June 24-25) sold out in just about 30 mins flat. Another round went up for grabs on Monday and single entry tix for the same two days were gone within 15 minutes.

While EDC is ecstatic, fans are taking to the event's Facebook page to express their displeasure and their hopes for another go. A check of the Electric Daisy ticket site shows that single day VIP tickets are still up for grabs for both of those days. The $200 price tag compared to a $75 GA ticket price is most likely the biggest stumbling block. (And, in case you're wondering, single day $75 tickets are still available for Sunday, June 26 as well as the big daddy of purchases -- $500 3-day VIP passes.)

Insomniac isn't saying if another round of single entry tickets will go up nor is it dishing on the rave's full line-up yet. Promised hotel and shuttle packages are still MIA TBA as well. From the looks of its FB page, EDC fans aren't waiting and are snapping up rooms all around town. Rates are reflecting the demand with New York-New York at $175 and $195 for the first two days, the Tropicana at $169.99 and $179.99, The Venetian at $349 each night, and Wynn Las Vegas showing its sold out of Deluxe Resort Doubles and Tower Rooms.
