Need Electric Daisy Carnival Las Vegas trip planning tips? From my experience, it’s best to plan as early as possible for the cheapest hotel and travel prices possible. These can sell out quickly so you don’t want to wait until the last second. Get peace of mind and know you are set and ready to go well in advance by planning your trip details now.

Experience the world of Electric Daisy Carnival on May 20-22nd at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway. All love. The entire weekend. Everyone together. Take this feeling and carry it with you wherever you go. You’ll finally understand as soon as you walk through the stands and down into the festival grounds.

See your favorite artists perform at kineticFIELD, cosmicMEADOW, circuitGROUNDS, neonGARDEN, bassPOD, wasteLAND, quantumVALLEY, stereoBLOOM, and on the specialty art cars. EDC’s landscape is an oversized playground with all your favorite full-size thrills. From relaxing to exhilarating, you’ll enjoy EDC from a whole new perspective!

EDC is a festival Insomniac Events prepares for all year round and they aspire to improve upon it each and every year. They always manage to do so somehow and blow my mind.


EDC Vegas 2019 included improvements to Camp EDC, new stage designs, and a brand new Downtown EDC. They added a new ticket tier for attendees to experience the festival in a new way. The festival was canceled for 2020 due to COVID-19. Insomniac Events made the right call to protect the rave community but it’s still of course a huge loss missing out on an epic year of the festival.

In 2021, they had to move the festival to October due to COVID-19 which allowed it to happen all while keeping ravers safe and secure. For 2022, the festival is back and better than ever for its May re-debut. They’ve added more RV parking and this year I’ve taken advantage of it so I can experience Camp EDC for the first time with my rave family!

Planning for Electric Daisy Carnival Las Vegas

Before you leave home, you should make a detailed checklist of everything you need to bring with you, preferably some days in advance. If you rush, you will always forget things, so do take your time.

The general store on-site will have almost everything you need, but it’s good practice to learn to be self-sufficient and prepared. If you make that list digitally, you can always add to it for your next festival camping experience and become quickly honed in the packing process.

What to wear for EDC

Buying your Rave Wear and Festival Outfits

All are welcome at EDC. It’s not a must to dress up. What makes the festival and culture so special however is how much people go all out to dress up and stand out. You can really express yourself however you want and be accepted no matter what. This is why I believe EDC has a huge place in my heart as I’ve never felt more loved and accepted anywhere else.

If you aren’t sure what to wear or where to start, I’ve got you covered. Sometimes help from an expert fashionista is useful so I wanted to share this incredible guide for you to check out on How to Dress for EDC Las Vegas. Click here to read it.

Sleeping Arrangements for Electric Daisy Carnival Las Vegas

Book a hotel with friends or stay at Camp EDC. This on-site camping includes rentable campers and RV parking. When you get to Camp EDC and you locate your ShiftPod, see who’s around! In a festival that sees a million brief encounters, so the bond you’ll make with your neighboring campers arguably runs deeper. They will be posted up next to you every day, so as soon as you arrive, say hello, and lend a helping hand.

In actual life, you should always aim to have a clean eight hours in order to be at your absolute best. Sleep is not a sign of weakness. You need to recharge, or you’ll be a zombie by the end of the festival. Given that Camp EDC has an after-party each night, you’ll need to keep an eye on your sleep schedule to make sure you’ve got the legs to go the distance.

Traveling to and from EDC each night

Whether you’re going by shuttle, carpool, or private coach, there’s a whole world of options to explore. Be sure to familiarize yourself with each to figure out what’s best for you and your party. The official EDC Las Vegas shuttles are available from a wide range of locations. Keep in mind that it’s always best to head out as early as possible because you don’t want to waste precious time sitting in traffic which will start to build up around 2 pm each day.

If you are doing Camp EDC, all you need to plan for is to arrive early on Thursday, May 19th so you can enter and head to your campsite at 9 am when it opens. This will give you ample time to get yourself situated where everything is inside the campgrounds. You’ll then be able to relax and enjoy the Mesa. The Mesia is a bustling hub of entertainment, activities, and amenities that you’ll be able to enjoy and take part in all weekend long. They have everything booked and ready for your enjoyment from daytime pool parties, arts and crafts, to group classes that exercise your mind, body, and spirit.

EDC Las Vegas 2022 Lineup

The Lineup

Start to figure out who is an absolute must-see now. With so many DJs performing, it can get super overwhelming. I promise whatever you end up scheduling will not always go as planned. You want to keep in mind that part of the magic of EDC is letting surprises happen. Let your ears guide your feet as you walk throughout the stadium. Make sure you allow time for discoveries as those will be what you remember most. I promise you!

You can somewhat get a sense of who will be playing on what stage as most trance artists will be at the QuantumVALLEY stage, techno artists will be at the neonGARDEN, and hardstyle at artists at wasteLAND. This isn’t always the case as some of these will be playing on the main stage which is kineticFIELD but it’s always fun to play the guessing game! Watch last year’s trailer now to get excited.

In this place, Headliners are here not only for the music they love but for the community that surrounds it. That community is why we are here. You are the heart of EDC. YOU are the Headliner. Click here to find out more details about EDC Las Vegas and grab your tickets.
