Insomniac Announces 2016 EDC Las Vegas Festival

Share article Email 0 comments

Insominac’s Electric Daisy Carnival (EDC) will grace the Las Vegas Speedway June 17, 18 and 19 of 2016, celebrating over 20 years of festival fun.

The world famous art and music event brought over 400,000 people to the transformed, neon-lit Las Vegas Speedway in 2015. There was a slew of fun to be had including carnival rides, gourmet food, 72 wedding ceremonies and of course, dance music from the industry’s top artists.

“Seeing the growth of EDC over the last 20 years has been an amazing experience, one I am truly grateful for,” said Pasquale Rotella, founder and CEO of Insomniac. “To commemorate two decades of incredible memories, I want to give dance music fans the journey of a lifetime. Without their passion and support, EDC would not be what it is today. I can’t wait for everyone to see what we have in store for 2016.”

 Tickets will go on sale Monday, Sept. 21 at noon PT. This year’s EDC tickets are being released months sooner than in past to ensure that EDC-goers receive the lowest possible admission price.

Fans are encouraged to purchase tickets early because starting Oct. 1 all passes purchased will be subject to a 9 percent tax due to the Live Entertainment Tax in the city of Las Vegas.

First tier 3-day general admission passes start at the Early Owl price of $335 plus fees, and VIP 3-day passes are priced at $699 plus fees. Last year’s VIP amenities for EDC Las Vegas included a separate entrance for expedited entry, elevated viewing decks at multiple stages, private bars and restroom facilities, high-end dining options, wifi hot-spots, access to exclusive lounges and more.

Single day tickets will not be available, but layaway pricing options will be available for all ticket types. For more details about EDC Las Vegas visit
