Despite the well-publicized legal trouble of its top promotor, Electric Daisy Carnival will go on as planned in 2012. With over 300,000 attendees expected, EDC Las Vegas is the biggest of the festival’s properties, and this year’s lineup promises such electro heavy weights as TiÃ«sto, Steve Angello, Sebastian Ingrosso, Avicii, Benny Benassi, Kaskade, Afrojack, Above & Beyond, and Bassnectar.
Other confirmed acts include Richie Hawtin, Calvin Harris, Moby, Carl Cox, Chase and Status, Armin van Buuren, David Guetta, John Digweed, Martin Solvig, Steve Aoki, Gareth Emery, Knife Party, Porter Robinson, Joachim Garraud, Digitalism, Ferry Corsten, High Contrast, Excision, Laidback Luke, Markus Schulz, Sander van Doorn, Little Boots, Josh Wink, Zeds Dead, Thomas Gold, Dada Life, Cosmic Gate, and Noisia. In all, EDC Las Vegas plans to stage over 500 theatrical performances, with the complete lineup and final schedule to be revealed in the coming weeks.
EDC Las Vegas runs June 8-10th at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, and three-day and VIP passes are now available via the festival’s website.
In addition to EDC Las Vegas, similar events will be staged in New York and Puerto Rico this year.
