LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA -– Insomniac announced, December 10, that Electric Daisy Carnival (EDC), New York will be returning to the Tri-State area for two days, Saturday, May 24 and Sunday May 25, Memorial Day Weekend 2014. This will mark the event’s third year to grace the New York City area and the second time that the event will be held at MetLife Stadium – home of both the New York Giants and Jets.

Insomniac will partner for another year with RPM Worldwide, the team behind Pacha New York, as the local partner for the festival. Tickets will go on sale Wednesday, December 11 at 9 a.m. EST and can be purchased directly, HERE!

Insomniac's premier annual event, EDC, is one of the largest, most spectacular music festivals in the world. As always, Insomniac will seek to raise the bar for large-scale live events, revealing production elements and large-scale installation artwork specifically tailored for the New York edition of the world’s largest touring dance music cultural event – EDC.

Insomniac Founder and CEO, Pasquale Rotella stated,

“MetLife Stadium and the surrounding grounds offer a massive blank canvas that allows us to take our production to an entirely new level in New York. Our goal is to create something that’s more than just a music festival – we want to transform MetLife Stadium into a piece of living art. As part of that effort, our giant, 40-foot-tall animatronic Owl, which debuted during EDC Las Vegas 2013, will make its first ever appearance on the East Coast. Over the coming months there will be even more surprises to share.”

The weekend festival will be a celebration of both music and art, featuring multiple stages, full-scale carnival rides and attractions, dozens of roaming theatrical performers, and a pyrotechnic display rivaling the 4th of July.

Two-day tickets for the festival will go on sale Wednesday, December 11 at 9 a.m. EST. VIP amenities will include a separate entrance to the festival for rapid entry, VIP decks overlooking the stages, VIP lounge areas, private restroom facilities, full cash bars at stage view VIP decks and VIP lounges and a souvenir laminate and lanyard.
