Tickets for Electric Daisy Carnival New York are on sale again today at 12 Noon EST. Earlier this week, Pacha NYC and Insomniac Events announced the addition of a third day, and the tickets officially go on sale today. EDC NY is the first EDM event to take over MetLife stadium, and will be going down May 18, 19, and 20th. To purchase tickets, check the link below.
It’s the first Electric Daisy Carnival to hit the Northeast ever and it isn’t technically even in New York, but EDC NY is already bigger than originally planned. Pacha NYC has just announced that the event will now be taking place over three days — just like Ultra Music Festival — instead of the originally planned two. It all goes down May 18, 19, and 20th at MetLife Stadium — and as if that wasn’t good enough, there’s a new crop of tickets up for sale to go along with the additional day. The next round will go on sale Thursday April 12 at 12 noon ET to the general public. However, those who have already purchased 2-day passes will be able to buy passes for the additional day starting on Wednesday — one day before everyone else. (Pacha NYC will be emailing those eligible with further details.) For the complete announcement, keep reading below.
Our friends at Pacha NYC have been gracious enough to offer our readers the opportunity to attend not one of their many events going on in Miami next week but two. We’ve got a pair of tickets to the Kings of Ace Pool Party at the National Hotel on Wednesday, where you’ll be able to listen to R3hab and Bassjackers, along with scoring a meet and greet with the ladies of Nervo. As if that wasn’t enough, we’re also giving away the same tickets and meet and greet opportunity for Sunday at the Spin Artist Agency Showcase, where Arty, Swanky Tunes, and Rebecca and Fiona will be providing the day’s soundtrack. Entry information can be found below, and we’ll be contacting winners on Monday.
Wednesday March 21 – Kings of Ace Pool Party @ National Hotel – Purchase Tickets

When we first broke the news of an EDC in NYC it was nothing more than a rumor, a few days later our dreams became a reality when the dates were officially announced by Pacha NYC and Insomniac. It’s hard to believe that in 3 hours tickets will officially go on sale. There is still no set line-up (although there have been some rumblings about Kaskade headlining one of the two days) but Pasquale Rotella was kind enough to tweet out ticket costs and they are surprisingly reasonable for an event that will prove to be the biggest thing to happen to the dance music scene in NYC since the Swedish House Mafia took over MSG. This is going to be historic.
May 19 – 20th at MetLife Stadium
$147 for a 2 day pass, $99 for a single day, $322 for a VIP 2 day pass, and $171 for a single day VIP.
Don’t fall victim to greedy scalpers and be sure you are ready at 3pm to grab your tickets, this one is destined to sell out.
It’s officially official. Electric Daisy Carnival is coming to New York through a partnership between Insomniac Events and Pacha NYC. Billboard was first to break the news, though it does not provide a venue or lineup information. (We may be able to help you with those, however.) According to Pasquale Rotella, Insomniac’s CEO and founder, “I’m really excited to be working with Pacha to bring our touring experience of Electric Daisy Carnival to New York. The entire Insomniac staff is looking forward to this upcoming EDC weekend on the East Coast.”
Pacha is continuing its birthday celebrations with another huge show: Fedde Le Grand is coming to the NYC hotspot this Friday, and bringing incredible up-and-comer Deniz Koyu with him. Dancing Astronaut wants you to be a part of the fun, so we’re giving away another pair of VIP tickets… but we’re also throwing in a meet-and-greet with Fedde himself and a DA/Pacha prize pack. We know you want to be there when Fedde turns Pacha into “Paradise” and Deniz gets “Dangerous” behind the decks, so enter now! We’ll pick a winner on Thursday at 6pm EST.
Laidback Luke may have just played in NYC, but we’re already missing his high-energy, genre-bending sounds. Lucky for us, we won’t have to wait much longer to see him again in the Big Apple: Luke is spinning a special “Super You & Me” party at Pacha on New Year’s Eve. Sandro Silva and Sunnery James & Ryan Marciano will open and, with a suggested “superhero” dress code, midnight champagne toast, and a 2012 countdown with Luke himself, we’re guessing things will get wild. Tickets are on sale now through ClubTickets – $54.43 gets you an early-bird GA ticket, while the $110 tickets include a 4-hour open bar.

The big room at Pacha can be an unforgiving place for newcomer DJs. It’s crowd, much like the city it calls home, is a mash of people from all walks of life. E-kiddies, house heads, businessmen, casual clubbers, and even the occasional bachelorette party all funnel into Pacha week after week after week. Sure, there may have been a portion of the crowd that was there to see Fadil El Ghoul, the Dutch producer known as R3HAB, but most of the people we spoke to had never heard of him. All that immediately changed the second that R3HAB descended into the DJ pit that overlooks the big room, cued up his first track, and brought New York’s largest night club to its knees.
Everything about Afrojack is larger than life: his music, his personality, and certainly his 6+ foot stature. His presence exudes energy, and if the sweat stains that appear on his trendy t-shirts are any indication, he’s definitely doing more than just pushing play when he gets behind the CDJs. He took over Pacha NYC this past Thursday, and the completely packed club was there for one thing and one thing only: to hear Afrojack music from the man himself. Well, we can tell you that he delivered, and he did it in a big way. Keep reading for the full breakdown… or don’t, and miss out on loads of awesome photos from the night.
Pacha has long been one of the names most synonymous with house music scene, but mostly for its iconic and legendary outpost on the “White Isle” of Ibiza. You don’t have to travel across the ocean to experience Pacha for yourself, as there are now 25 different Pachas worldwide — including one in New York City. With the EDM scene heating up in NY like Steve Angello when he gets a track request, the club has gone all out with an extensive lineup for the summer, including Avicii, Afrojack, and Dirty South. We were lucky enough to attend Dirty South this past Saturday, and had our passports been checked, we might’ve been mistaken the island of Manhattan for the island of Ibiza. Read past the break for a rundown of Dirty South’s epic set — and a whole lot of eye candy to make you wish you were there.
