Electric Daisy Carnival (EDC) 2011 @ Las Vegas Motor Speedway

Item Image

In case you have been living on a small remote island in the South Pacific (‘Lost’ reference) you should know that EDC has been moved from the Los Angeles Coliseum to the Las Vegas Motor Speedway. Why the change you ask? The Las Vegas venue holds approximately 142,000 people while the coliseum holds only 75,000. Almost double the capacity and more importantly double the SPACE. For all the energy that raves bring, it is always nice to have a little breathing room. Moving away from California to Las Vegas also increases our rage potential, we avoid California state laws (which currently allow raves to continue till only 2 AM PST) and embrace Nevada’s laws. EDC is rumored to last until the sun comes up. For the first time ever EDC has been extended to three days. We all would choose 72 hours of mayhem over the standard 48.

NOTE: I am glad EDC decided to continue allowing the purchase of single day general admission tickets. This provides people the opportunity to enjoy the show, but still make their other commitments whether it be work or school. Hopefully, UMF (Ultra Music Festival) follows in Insomniac’s footsteps.

A ‘wolfpack’ of us (‘Hangover’ reference) at Dancing Astronaut will be in attendance. Although there are many different locations other than the ‘strip’ to stay at, we decided it was best to conform with the masses and party/sleep in Las Vegas Boulevard. If you want to meet up anytime before/during/after EDC feel free to email us at

WARNING: Dancing Astronaut loves its community so we offer all rookie EDC participants this small, but useful piece of information. Cell phone reception within the confines of the carnival will be dodgy at best. Do the math – 150,000 cell phones packed into a centralized location = minimal reception. Whether you are going to EDC in a large or small group it is a smart idea to create a rendezvous point to meet up with the people you may lose. Remember, EDC is an amazing experience, but how much fun is it to rage by yourself?
