Neon Will Once Again Rule Las Vegas When EDC Comes to Town Next Weekend

June 12, 2015 at 8:03 PM | by | ()

Fans of good ole' rock n' roll, look away now.

We're just one week away from the Electric Daisy Carnival, the electronic dance music (EDM) festival featuring 200 DJs spread out over eight stages at the Las Vegas Speedway. This is the carnival's fifth year in Las Vegas.

If you were hoping to get a ticket, 3-day general admission tickets are already sold-out--at least the ones that cost $329. But according to TicketMaster, there are some 3-day general admission tickets that are still up for sale at $349 a person, which end up totaling $388 with taxes and fee. VIP tickets are still available as well for $748 a person, including taxes and fees. EDC does not sell 1-day tickets but you can pay thousands of dollars for Marquee Skydeck Tables which are available on a one-day basis. *Bangs head against table. Does it again.*

The best way to find out whatever it is you need to know about EDC is to visit the website which like the festival, is overloaded with information but the carnival's Facebook page is posting regular updates as well.

Even though we think EDC attendees will be too burned out to do anything other than drugs dance at the festival, Las Vegas nightclubs such as Omnia, LiFE, and XS are bringing their celebrity DJs out in hopes of catching EDC-goers.

Incredibly, room rates aren't all that ridiculous next weekend. The Venetian is at $299; The Bellagio at $318; Wynn at $344 and MGM Grand at $222 with many others falling between the $150 and $250 range. Which is quite good for Strip hotels during a (supposedly) peak demand summer weekend.

Are you attending EDC next weekend or nah? Let us know in comments below!

Electric Daisy Carnival: 2015 Dates, Pricing And Early Look At Room Rates

November 18, 2014 at 9:01 PM | by | ()

Some will circle them. Others will cross them out. The 2015 dates for Electric Daisy Carnival have been announced with the oontz fest taking over the Las Vegas Motor Speedway once again June 19-21.

Next year will mark the fifth anniversary (in Vegas) for the music festival which brings hundreds of thousands together in the name of EDM. Tickets will go on sale December 1 at noon PT. Three-day general admission will be priced at $329 while VIP passes will begin at $699. As in prior years, no single day tickets will be sold, but you will be able to make the cost a bit easier to handle thanks to a layaway option. And, you might want to seriously consider it as pricing is significantly higher than last year which saw general admission at $249 and VIP access at $499.

An owl's eye view of an EDC stage.

The three-day, dusk-to-dawn brain melt more commonly referred to as the Electric Daisy Carnival returns to the Las Vegas Motor Speedway June 20-22.

Las Vegas' other big music festival, Life Is Beautiful, will once again take over Downtown Vegas October 24-26.

To The Bottom Of The Rabbit Hole, Where The Electric Daisy Carnival Awaits

Where: 7000 North Las Vegas Blvd [map], 89115
June 27, 2013 at 6:01 PM | by | ()

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.

Preparing For A Descent Into The Madness Of Electric Daisy Carnival

Where: 7000 North Las Vegas Blvd [map], 89115
June 19, 2013 at 7:08 PM | by | ()

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.

After Mad Rush, Tickets Still Available for Electric Daisy Carnival

March 20, 2013 at 1:08 PM | by | ()

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.)

A Look At Rates For Electric Daisy Carnival

Where: [map]
January 25, 2013 at 2:18 PM | by | ()

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!

Rave On: Electric Daisy 2013 Dates Announced

November 1, 2012 at 2:27 PM | by | ()

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, Pasquale and Baby Make Three (Or, Is That Four?)

August 29, 2012 at 1:49 PM | by | ()

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.
