Yesterday, Insomniac revealed one of the most anticipated festival lineups of 2018–Electric Daisy Carnival Las Vegas! It features more than 250 artists from across the globe across three days. From Friday, May 18 to Sunday, May 20, headliners (that’s you!) will dance from dusk till dawn in a celebration of life, love, art, and music. Attendees will witness epic sets from acts like Armin van Buuren, Kaskade, Marshmello, Martin Garrix, Claude VonStroke, Excision and more. In addition to that, more than 25 rare b2b performances including Doctor P b2b Flux Pavilion, DJ Stephanie b2b Lady Faith, and 12th Planet b2b Kill The Noise will take place. The Binches (Dotcom, Ookay, Kayzo & Yultron) and Firebeatz vs. DubVision will treat fans to world exclusive performances, while the fan-favorite NGHTMRE & Slander Present: Gud Vibrations and Tchami x Malaa [No Redemption] tours make their way to the EDC festival stages for the first time. Dash Berlin will return to EDC Las Vegas with a long-awaited classic trance set, while dozens of artists will make their EDC Las Vegas debut this May, from Moksi, GG Magree, Khalid, Borgeous, Charlotte de Witte, and many more.
Insomniac didn’t stop there, though. In addition to giving us this massive lineup, they revealed exclusive festival details. In celebration of Insomniac’s 25th anniversary, fans will see the premiere of five brand-new EDC stage designs for kineticFIELD, circuitGROUNDS, neonGARDEN, bassPOD and the new open-air quantumVALLEY experience. In addition, fans will enjoy once-in-a-lifetime performances from their favorite artists at cosmicMEADOW, wasteLAND, and the brand-new Insomniac Records stage. The theme this year will be ‘love’, because as Pasquale said in the announcement, “In 2018 it’s all about LOVE and the connections we share with one another. In this world we live in, it’s more important than ever that we strengthen those bonds between us.” New to the festival this year, Headliners will also be treated to early-entry opening ceremonies on the cosmicMEADOW lawn beginning daily at 4 p.m., including extended sets from different artists just before sunset. EDC Las Vegas 2018 will also feature the inaugural Camp EDC program, where camping ticketholders will have the unique opportunity to join an expanded festival experience with full lodging, interactive activities, and an exclusive Thursday night kickoff party featuring Excision, Habstrakt and G Jones before the gates officially open.
