E.D.C. Las Vegas | Hot Tips and Essential Stuff from a Veteran Headliner!
Electric Daisy Carnival Las Vegas, is the largest multi-day music festival in North America, and attracted more than 400,000 fans over three days in June 2016.
If you are attending EDC.LV 2017 for the first time or returning to play Under the Electric Sky for the umpteenth time, Fresh Music Freaks we like to include PLUR wisdom from those that have the knowledge when it comes to Music Festivals.
We understand that many websites use Staff Writers that throw together the annual “essentials” list, but these lists very rarely capture the essence of dance music culture.
When Ashley Castro posted her list in a Facebook group we were quick to support the PLUR she was spreading so take a look at the list and see if there is anything you’d like to add!
