The electric sky is about to light up over Las Vegas Motor Speedway for the 2015 installment of Electric Daisy Carnival (EDC) Las Vegas next weekend.
This year, the dance music mammoth will see a stellar lineup of DJ/producers and artistes such as Above & Beyond, Porter Robinson, Alesso, Miss Nine, Arty, Cash Cash, New World Punx, Cedric Gervais, Martin Garrix, R3HAB, Tritonal, Zedd, Major Lazer, Kaskade, Gareth Emery, and many, many more.
The good people of THUMP (an electronic music and culture YouTube channel) traveled down to Sin City to get an insider look into how EDC Las Vegas transforms a sprawling Motor Speedway into a 3-day celebration of dance music, with hundreds of thousands of the industry’s most passionate crazy fans. In fact, last year’s massive 3-day EDC Las Vegas festival drew in roughly 134,000 partygoers per day!
As the hype builds for Insomniac‘s flagship event, all kinds of preparations are currently underway.
The video takes you to the Insomniac warehouse where stage pieces are being collected and shipped to bring the renowned cathedral stage to EDC New York. The production elements for Vegas are planned for a year and then the entire festival is installed in about 2 or 3 weeks before being deconstructed immediately afterward. They even design DJ platforms with jumping in mind, because we know these artistes can’t stand in one place. No detail is overlooked as you can see all of the monumental effort that goes into producing one of the world’s largest festivals.

EDC Las Vegas will be happening over the 19th June – 21st June weekend.
