Chicago EDM fans got a little pre-festival season surprise this week. In a piece on Electric Daisy Carnival’s first foray into the Windy City, The Chicago Tribune leaked the festival’s initial lineup, with heavyweights Tiesto, Armin Van Buuren, David Guetta, Avicii and Above & Beyond slated to headline. The lineup has not been confirmed on the event’s website, but Pasquale Rotella is quoted extensively in the article and no denial has been issued.

Last week fans received an official announcement for the latest destination on the Electronic Daisy Carnival trail — the Chicagoland Speedway — and tickets are on sale now. The highly anticipated festival continues to expand its draw, making its first stop in the Midwest from May 24th-26th. This year, in Chicago, the three-day event which is known for its world-renowned DJs, performers, and carnival rides will allow camping for festival-goers — a first for the infamous EDC. Tickets for the event start at $175 (without camping) and $295 (with camping).
EDC Chicago announces Memorial Day Weekend dates, Chicagoland Speedway location, tickets on sale January 23rd
Pasquale Rotella confirmed Chicago as a destination on Electric Daisy Carnival’s road to Vegas last month, and the official announcement has finally been made. EDC Chicago will span Memorial Day Weekend as rumored and will take place at the windy city’s Chicagoland Speedway. After its success in Las Vegas, the festival has touched down in New York, Orlando, and Puerto Rico; and now, Chicago will be graced with Electric Daisy Carnival on May 24th, 25th, and 26th — but here’s the kicker: Chicago will be the first to offer camping.
Tickets go on sale next Wednesday, January 23rd at 12pm CST. Jump below the break for ticket and camping information along with a message from Pasquale Rotella.
After rumors of Electric Daisy Carnival making a stop in Chicago next year, Pasquale Rotella took to his Instagram account to confirm not only the Chicago festival, but the second annual New York event as well. The Chicago weekend has been speculated to span Memorial Day Weekend, and if New York’s round comes at the same time it did last year, both stops on the road to Vegas should occupy May 2013. However, date and venue information will have to wait until January 16th, when Pasquale is slated to release details for both cities.Posted by
This past Saturday, Pasquale Rotella, outspoken CEO of Insomniac, posted a photo to his Instagram and Twitter alluding to a special announcement coming soon for the city of Chicago. While details are still scarce, the event is being rumored to be held on Memorial Day weekend – which may be in direct conflict with the Future Sound Dance Music Festival scheduled for the same weekend. As of writing, the promotional company behind FSDMF, Aura Presents, has reportedly filed for bankruptcy – leaving the festival’s future extremely uncertain and opening the door for Insomniac and EDC Chicago to bring its world-renowned brand to the Windy City.
Stayed tuned for more information as the rumor mill continues to bubble.
