After leaving fans on the edge of their seats in anticipation for the sold out 17th Annual Electric Daisy Carnival at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway -- Insomniac finally revealed the diverse lineup of musical "conductors" as founder and CEO Pasquale Rotella likes to call them. This year's list includes musical acts, artists and theatrical performers. Yesterday we told you that HARD events will also present a stage at this year's festival, which takes place June 21-23 at Las Vegas Motor Speedway from 6p.m.-6 a.m. The full lineup is listed in alphabetical order below.
Insomniac has now taken over Las Vegas for an entire week of special events, clubs, pool parties, a music conference and award show all leading up to the main event, which is expected to draw 345,000 festival "headliners" or attendees together under the dessert sky to experience a massive carnival experience featuring theatrical performers, fire twirlers, aerialist, dancers and stilt walkers on top of artist as diverse as Empire of the Sun, Calvin Harris, Dubfire, Sub Focus, Headhunterz and 12th Planet. Though Kaskade was initially announced on the lineup for the festival, he's since confirmed via Twitter that he will not be at EDC this year.
All incredible producers, DJs and taste makers in their own right on the bill, we are most excited for the large-scale art installations which the festival is most known for. Our favorite Wide Awake Art Cart will be hosted by LA's music blog Gotta Dance Dirty one night and will feature their usual suspects (some OC and LB natives) Troy, Bones, Craig Wilkiams, Tropicool and Shae B. Also on our radar is the Get Lost? Stage hosted by our favorite Crosstown Rebels Damian Lazarus and friends. And who could forget all of the HARD dawgs like Claude VonStroke, Kill the Noise and Tiga.
"Each Year our fans' inspire us to exceed their expectations - there's truly something in it for everyone," said Rotella in a press statement. "EDC will feature a slate of original artwork, a Discovery Project featuring emerging names and collaborations within dance music culture. I'm excited for our fans - the true headliners - to experience this firsthand." The full line-up is below. So what do you think? Did EDC Las Vegas exceed your expectations and who are you most excited to see?
