Electric Daisy Carnival - The 2014Tour
Nothing is going to make your experience at the Electric Daisy Festival
(EDC) more exciting than it being hosted in the most exciting place in the world - New York City. Containing some of the biggest
attractions, an incredible clash of cultures, and being the dynamo of modern Americana, NYC cannot be beat. Whether you're
catching a Yankee's game or getting your 15 minutes in Times Square, there is no better place to be living large and experiencing
the most exciting EDM event in the world.
In between your nights at EDC, be sure out the legendary neighborhoods, tourist
attractions, and culture that is spread throughout NYC's fabled boroughs. Grab lunch near the One World Trade Center before
heading up to Central Park for some people watching in the sun. Then hit up midtown and brush shoulders with actors, DJs and
musicians before making your way to your main event - EDC New York.
About Electric Daisy Carnival
off as a rave in the underground music scene in the 1990s, EDC would make its first appearance in spirit at the Shrine Expo
hall in Los Angeles, 1997. The festival would bounce around different venues, typically in the greater Los Angeles area. Nearly
a decade later EDC would sell out the biggest venues across California, eventually being dubbed the "American Ibiza" - named
after the almost mythical party island utopia of Ibiza, Spain. Unable to be contained by just California's borders, the EDC
festival would branch and out into other venues across the US and into Europe, including Colorado, Texas, Florida, New York,
Chicago, and London.
The Electric Daisy Carnival has become the flagship event carrying some of the fastest growing
genres in electronic music, including EDM, house, dance, electro, D&B, techno, and dubstep. Originally starting as just
one insane night of dancing and music, EDC has expanded into two to three night festivals that run from when the sun goes
down to when the sun comes up. EDC takes a unique approach by combining its epic music lineups with even more incredible light
shows, creating an experience that transcends just sound alone. The festival has developed into something that is much more
than just a concert - it's become a way of life.
2008 was EDC's breakout year, where 65,000
people would gather at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum to experience the hottest names in music at the time. There would
be blowout performances by Rabbit In the Moon, Armand Van Helden, Mark Farina, and Z-Trip. The night would end with a bang
as legendary Paul Van Dyk brought the festivities to a crescendo. Realizing their creation was now in the mainstream, EDC
planners expanded the festival to two days and began to prepare themselves for festival attendance breaking the 100,000 mark.
2009 had their best lineup yet with Groove Armada, Thievery Corporation, ATB, Paul Oakenfold, David Guetta, Infected Mushroom,
and The Crystal Method all giving mind blowing performances that would raise the bar higher than ever before.
four years would see the festival ("Carnival") continue to expand as it kept booking the biggest acts and constantly shattering
its own records. 2010 netted 185,000 attendees and would see the return of artists such as ATB and Yoji, as well as hot acts
like MSTRKRFT, LA Riots, Caspa, and Benny Benassi. In 2011 the Las Vegas EDC would peak at 230,000 people in attendance, after
event organizers were able to draw all the usual biggest names in addition to acts such as Steve Aoki, Skrillex, and Avicii.
2012 would be no different a as Armin van Buuren and Afrojack both lent their musical talents to the Carnival, with EDC Vegas
now pulling in 320,000 people.
EDC can be experienced across all across the US, and even across
the Atlantic and Caribbean - in the UK and Puerto Rico.
EDC has become not just about the music but about the experience.
Between the light show, amazing music, and sideshows such as competitions and art, an EDC ticket is more than just a music
