Electric Daisy Carnival is an annual music festival whose roots date back to the 1990s. While the flagship festival takes place in Las Vegas, Nev., EDC has held events at different venues across the United States and around the world, including Orlando, Fla. EDC Orlando was first held May 27-28, 2011, at Tinker Field next to the Florida Citrus Bowl. Approximately 32,000 attendees visited over the two-day weekend. The 2019 version of EDC Orlando has been expanded to a three-day event set for Nov. 8-10, again at Tinker Field.
From a Warehouse Rave to an International Festival
Electric Daisy Carnival started in the 1990s as a simple warehouse rave party in Los Angeles, Calif. It was founded by Stephen Hauptfuhr (aka DJ Mr. Koolaid) and Gary Richards, who hosted the festival at different venues in California throughout the years, including Exposition Park and Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum in Los Angeles, the Queen Mary Events Park in Long Beach, the Lake Dolores Waterpark in Barstow and the National Orange Show Events Center in San Bernardino. Other editions of the festival occurred outside the United States in India, Japan, China, Mexico and the United Kingdom. The International Dance Music Awards nominated EDC Los Angeles as the Best Music Event from 2010-2011, followed by EDC Las Vegas from 2012 to the present. The Electronic Music Awards recognized EDC in 2017 as the Festival of the Year.
