According to the Las Vegas Sun, a potential tax reform in Nevada may threaten the future of Insomniac’s Electric Daisy Carnival in Las Vegas in future years. The report explains the State Legislature is debating the Live Entertainment Tax, which levies a specific percentage of revenue for certain live productions, and its possible extension to more or all large scale live performance events in the state. Right now, EDC Las Vegas and many other productions are exempt from the tax but that free pass is in jeopardy right now.
Pre-sale for three day passes for this year’s Electric Daisy Carnival at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway has begun today as of 12pm PST. Only three day passes are available for this coming year’s festival, scheduled to be held June 21-23, 2013, several weeks later than last year. The special pre-sale price is $199 for general admission and will be available “until allotments run out,” according to an Insomniac email from earlier in the week. If you don’t get your ticket now, do not worry too much, tickets will go back on sale to the general public on January 9th at 12pm PST for $259 GA and will include a layaway option of five payments, much like Coachella does for its customers. Layway will also be available as of January 9th for the $450 VIP tickets.
