Last year Electric Daisy Carnival New York took over Met Life stadium for 3 days in East Rutherford, NJ allowing patrons to dance on the same field that the NY Giants and NY Jets play. This year EDC NY embraced its namesake and set up shop at Citi Field in Queens, home of the constantly underperforming New York Mets. With baseball season in full swing – pun intended – questions were raised as to whether or not the festival would be held within the ballpark. As it turns out EDC NY will occupy the parking lots just outside of the field with 4 stages, the Wide Awake Art Car and Neon Garden as the only true arena-type structure at the event.Posted by
Earlier today Electric Daisy Carnival Las Vegas announced its 2013 lineup. Among those names was Kaskade who, after seeing the official lineup, was shocked to see his name listed. Allegedly a clerical error listed Kaskade as performing at this year’s festival but the DJ quickly took to Twitter to dispel the claims.
View the official EDC Vegas lineup here (but scratch Kaskade from the list) and see the Twitter exchange after the break.
However, Kaskade WILL be playing that Saturday at Marquee in Las Vegas.
Electric Daisy Carnival Las Vegas announces 2013 lineup; ‘musical acts, artists and theatrical performers’
While the stops in New York and Chicago have been solidified for later this month, sights remain set on Electric Daisy Carnival‘s final destination. Insomniac has finally released the lineup for EDC Las Vegas, a roster that includes “musical acts, artists and theatrical performers.” The final billing will feature over 500 names, and today’s announcement has revealed its vast majority. Pasquale Rotella insists that the fans are the true headliners, and explains ”each year our fans’ inspire us to exceed their expectations – there’s truly something in it for everyone.”
Jump below the break for the lineup.
For the first time in its history, Insomniac will be partnering with England’s pre-eminent electronic event producers, Cream, to bring the first-ever UK edition of Electric Daisy Carnival to life at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in England. A move that comes immediately following ID&T’s announcement to move it’s operations from Europe to the US with TomorrowWorld, further igniting the EDM arms race. Scheduled to be held for one day on July 20th 2013, the lineup already boasts Tiësto, Avicii, Steve Angello, Alesso, Hardwell, Porter Robinson, Madeon and more.
“Bringing Insomniac’s Electric Daisy Carnival experience across the Atlantic to London has been my dream for years and I couldn’t ask for a better partner than Cream, who is a world-wide fixture in electronic dance music culture,” said Pasquale Rotella, CEO and founder of Insomniac. “I’m confident that our collaboration will expose Insomniac’s returning fans and those who have yet to visit our United States festivals an opportunity to unite this summer in London.”
“We are really excited to be collaborating with Insomniac for what will be a spectacular event this summer,” says James Barton, president of Electronic Music at Live Nation. “Electric Daisy Carnival is already an important and prominent international brand, and we believe it will thrive in the UK in 2013.”
Early bird tickets go on sale on Tuesday, April 9 at 10 a.m. Pacific.

EDC NY 2013 returns to the tri-state area for two days in May, relocating from New Jersey’s Met Life Stadium to an official New York location at Citi Field. The festival’s second foray into the Northeast market has been scaled back to a two-day affair but will likely feature more of the over-the-top atmosphere than it did in its inaugural outing. Phase 1 of the festival’s lineup has just been announced, featuring Calvin Harris, Eric Prydz, Afrojack, Porter Robinson, Dirty South, Carl Cox, Damian Lazarus and more. Interestingly enough, Empire of the Sun is also listed – bringing a live performance element to the festival in 2013.

General admission tickets to the two-day event will be $159 while VIP tickets at $299 before fees.

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
