Yes, it's never too early to think about the next big rave, or when to avoid it.

Alice never made it to the bottom of the rabbit hole.
Lewis Carroll's 1865 novel introduced children and adults alike to a remarkable fantasy world stumbled upon by the title character after she unquestionably chases a white rabbit down his hole to a curious hallway. This is where Alice's journey into Wonderland begins, but had our protagonist skipped the rabbit hole's first exit and continued falling head over heel, she would have reached the true bottom of this wildly unpredictable and utterly intense alternate universe.
Had Alice kept tumbling, she would have eventually arrived at the Electric Daisy Carnival.
A three-day blitzkrieg on the senses that featured over 200 DJs performing from 7:00 p.m. to 5:30 a.m. June 21-23 at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway, EDC is neither a concert nor a carnival. Such designations fail miserably at describing the true nature of this event. The reality is that EDC is a living, breathing, glowing organism that bounces and rolls and pumps and slithers across the Las Vegas desert floor from sunset to sunrise, possessing the capability to rewire the human brain into seeing sounds and hearing colors.
The glow sticks have faded away, but the hopes of a hook up still burn bright for some of the hundreds of thousands who partied from dusk to dawn at Electric Daisy Carnival over the weekend. We hit up Craigslist's Missed Connections in hopes of helping seekers of
booty calls true love everywhere.

Editor's Note: Most of us here at VegasChatter are more around the 'get off our lawn' age of our lives. You won't find us at the club so much anymore, nor tweeting each other about the DJ we can't wait to see. However, that doesn't mean we don't like to get down at all, anymore. Last year, Richard Lane ventured to Electric Daisy Carnival and noted some must-read survival strategies for this year, including the all important, put your hands up. Pretty much constantly. This year, he's passed the torch to our Joe Fortenbaugh, who's normally found on the golf course or ringside at the big fight. Joe shares his thoughts as he prepares to EDC it for the first time.
I'm 32 years old with an ever-expanding waistline and a rapidly thinning swash of auburn hair that continuously threatens its secession from a once-proud union. My afternoon runs are more laborious than ever before, with plodding now a more suitable and accurate descriptor than striding. Once the most important acronym of my existence, the significance of a GPA has since been replaced by the monthly monitoring of my LDL.
I'm getting old.

Electric Daisy Carnival will return to Vegas June 21-23 for the third year in a row. And, although fans freaked out when early bird tickets sold out in under an hour back in November, three-day passes are still available should you decide to get your rave on, too. (No single-day tickets this year.) For those over 21 years of age, VIP tickets are $500 plus a $48.75 fee. Or, general admission it with a $289 package, plus a $37.15 service fee. And, tack on a $7 shipping fee to both of those as well.
The event is scheduled for two weeks later than it was held in 2012 in order to avoid the winds that caused acts to be canceled at last year's show. Despite that, we still had a blast and highly suggest you attend if you like electronic music, dancing nearly naked with strangers until five in the morning under the desert sky, and can put your hands up. (As we learned last year, the latter is quite insisted on.)

Even though Electric Daisy Carnival isn't until the end of June (June 21-23), hotel rates are already significantly higher than they were for EDC this time last year.
If you're planning on attending this year's party, be sure to act quick! We've collected the initial rates below from some of the hotels we recommended last year. EDC also did everyone a solid when they partnered with a few of the bigger hotels, including Luxor, New York-New York, MGM Grand, Aria, and the Bellagio. You can check the discounted rates here. As of now, some of them are cheaper than the hotels below. For example, Circus Circus is cheaper if you go through the EDC website at $87/night, and a room at the Luxor is $135/night.
By the way, three-day passes to EDC are still available. They're priced at $500 for those over 21. Single day admissions aren't being offered this year, but a lay-a-way plan is!
All psyched about snagging those early bird tickets to Electric Daisy Carnival? Uh-oh, they sold out in under an hour. The annual electronic dance fest was set to sell a block of 30,000 tickets starting at noon PST today.
Fans took to Twitter to voice their annoyance over the wheel-spinning, online processing of tickets which caused many to miss out on the deal. Facebook comments showed fans lamenting being caught in a purchase-pause lasting almost an hour.
Ready to party with hundreds of thousands of people you don't know again?
Electric Daisy Carnival is coming back to Las Vegas for a third year and, today, announced just when that would be -- June 21-23.
2013 will see another three-day, after-dark EDM fest at the Las Vegas Speedway, but this time it will be two weeks later than last year to try to avoid, as the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports, the winds that caused the "cancellation of dozens of acts" last year. The trade-off, though, is that it will be a lot hotter than this year's fest, too. Oh, well. We'll have no choice than to wear even less, we guess.

Holly's world is getting bigger.
Still shaking her peep'ers at Planet Hollywood through December (we think), Holly Madison has revealed to Us Weekly that she's 12 weeks preggers. The baby daddy? Electric Daisy Carnival's Pasquale Rotella whom Holly has been dating for nine months.
Just last month, Holly told In Touch that she had "started the adoption process" and was considering a child from Africa or South Korea. Math's not really our strong suit, but we're pretty sure that means she was already knocked up when she said that.

Electric Daisy Carnival may have just ended, but most attendees already can't wait to return next year. While we likely won't hear dates for EDC 2013 until the end of the year (this year's dates were announced in October of 2011), EDCers just may want to bookmark the page of SpringHill Suites Las Vegas North Speedway now. It's a mouthful, but here's what it means: cheap, new rooms by the EDC event grounds.
The SpringHill Suites hotel is so new, it isn't even open yet. Reports have it making its debut this Friday, June 22, however, we couldn't find availability online until June 29. Clicking around, we found an average rate of around $94 to $104 a night. Sure, rates will hike up once EDC 2013 is set in stone, but if you act fast when they're first announced you could probably lock in a pretty darn good rate. Last year, we were able to find 11 places to stay for EDC all under $98 right after event dates were published so your chances are pretty good for scoring a steal.
EDC has posted up all of the items that were lost and then found over the course of the three-day festival. Well, found by them and not found by others and taken home as parting gifts.
There's all the usual stuff like shades and hats...
It's been a while since we checked in on the Las Vegas Missed Connections page of Craigslist. But, with tons of visitors and locals alike coming down from the Electric Daisy Carnival high of this past weekend, there's a ton of amazingly awesome Missed Connections to wade through. And, for those of us who couldn't make EDC and still don't know what kandis involve, reading the Missed Connections makes us feel young again.
Like this one:
You're an EDC ticker checker from day 3 who was NOT wearing the uniform and was dressed up sort of rave-style. You asked me if I liked being groped (eluding to the security pat down) and i asked "is that an offer?"
Then... you touched me... and it was... AWESOME I hope you see this!
We hope the groping EDC checker/TSA security checkpoint guard sees this as well (C'mon, you know that's his day job. You know it.) Until then, we'll have to hope this tender love connection works out somehow:
You had dark hair and were dancing behind me. You asked about my fuzzy hat and I caressed your face with one of the paws. We traded kandi and I picked one from you that said KISS<3ME it had blue and yellow with pink star beads. We made out and I told you to let me bite your lip. You were with a chick friend and I was with 3 guys. Your friend took a pic of us and then my buddy took a pic of us but you and your friend had to go somewhere after.
