Hundreds of thousands of electro-dance music lovers are expected to descend upon Las Vegas for the Electric Daisy Carnival (EDC) inside the Las Vegas Motor Speedway from June 17−19. Now in its 20th year, EDC features performances from world-renowned DJs, state-of-the-art lighting and sound stage design, carnival rides, theatrical performances and large-scale interactive art installations.
Since its debut in Las Vegas in 2011, EDC has had a positive impact on the area’s economy. In the past five years, the music festival has generated a staggering $1.3 billion for the local economy and attracted more than 1.7 million visitors. In 2015, EDC attracted more than 405,000 attendees over the course of three days, boosting the Clark County economy by $350.3 million, and creating $141.3
million in increased labor income for Clark County workers and 3,270 full-time jobs.
EDC 2016 is expected to attract just as many visitors, with its fan base and reputation among music and art lovers consistently growing. The three-day festival will be accompanied by EDC Week, June 13−20. The week includes a variety of club shows, pool parties and the fifth annual EDMbiz conference for electronic music professionals.
