You never know what's going to happen next, and this year the promoters have some big surprises in store for your senses.

Electric Daisy Carnival has grown into a one-of-a-kind entertainment experience.

It is your world, so go play and let your imagination lead the way.

Where is EDC held? The Las Vegas Motor Speedway, located on the outskirts of Las Vegas. The venue will undergo a unique transformation as the Electric Daisy Carnival comes to town.

TIPS Drink plenty of water the days leading up to the festival. This will help you stay hydrated once you are there. Make sure to eat, your body needs energy to keep you up and dancing till the wee hours. Lockers will be available for rent at the festival for your belongings if you need to rent one.
