Electric Daisy Carnival, also popularly called “EDC” just ended the iconic three-day lineup at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

From Friday to Sunday, the motor speedway transformed into a technicolor dreamland of electronic music, physical psychedelic art and pure heaven for the vibrant souls of the world. Headliners for this year included Benny Benassi, Culture Shock, Dom Dolla, Kaskade, John Summit, DJ Snake, Excision, Steve Aoki and so much more.

In 1997, a warehouse party in Los Angeles became the start of EDC. Since then, CEO Pasquale Rotella has grown the once-small warehouse party into a global dance music festival that also happened globally in Mexico, Korea, Japan, Brazil, China and so much more, according to the festival’s website.

The company that organizes EDC is called Insomniac Events, and they’re synonymous with throwing on huge, mind-bending raves such as Nocturnal Wonderland and Escape: Psycho Circus.

After bouncing around a few venues in California, Insomniac has finally made Las Vegas’ Motor Speedway its home anchor for the annual EDC festival. Thus, EDC history continues.

“By incorporating carnival themes and attractions, cutting-edge stage production, world-class talent, and innovative art and technology,” the website states. “EDC is more than an electronic music festival – it is an unparalleled multi-sensory experience unlike any other.”
