Electric Daisy Carnival’s 2013 Las Vegas line-up announced

After months of speculation, Insomniac has now revealed the long list of ‘creators’ set to head into the Las Vegas desert this June for the 17th annual Electric Daisy Carnival. Arranged in alphabetical order below, it’s a diverse cast, from the biggest headliners in dance music to niche draw-cards across electro, techno, house, hard dance, dubstep and more. This list includes musical acts, artists and theatrical performers. The top-tier names include Armin van Buuren, Above & Beyond, Tiesto, Eric Prydz, Calvin Harris, Avicii, Porter Robinson and Dash Berlin. It runs deep, too, with Crosstown Rebels presenting a Get Lost stage, Richie Hawtin bringing his ‘Enter’ concept back and more.

There’s a good reason EDC has sold out before a single act was announced: Insomniac goes all-in. They’ve secured the 1000-acre Las Vegas Speedway on the weekend of 21-23 June. Running with the tag-line ‘The Headliner Is You’, the festival promises a “a fully immersive audiovisual adventure”, with powerfully-equipped stages, pyrotechnics and more. The festival will once again sit as the centrepiece of EDC Week from 18-25 June, a series of day and night parties, the EDM Biz conference “and other special surprises”. Complaints of traffic jams out to the site have also been taken into account, with “a newly dedicated route in 2013” to minimise gridlock and additional lanes in and out of the festival.

Speaking exclusively to inthemix about the Las Vegas event, Insomniac CEO Pasquale Rotella said: “We’ll be making some major changes this upcoming year actually; very different from what we’ve done in the past. The environment will be completely different, because of the production that we’re doing. We’ve always focused on technology, LED screens and moving lights. The majority of our events have been about the most cutting-edge technology. We are going to get real creative with the stages – we’re going to have art installations, additional art cars roaming the festival ground and a few surprises as well for when you get there.”
