Electric Daisy Carnival went from being pushed out of Los Angeles after their 2010 festival to quickly becoming one of the darlings of the state of Nevada. It has been a boon to Nevada's economy, bringing in more and more money each year. Last year, the festival had a massive economic impact of $278 million. This year, Insomniac's festival had a whopping $337.8 million economic impact. Over the past four years, EDC has had a total economic impact of $959 million.
Beacon Economics generated this year's economic impact report, which was commissioned by Insomniac. Their estimates were pulled from attendee surveys and Insomniac-originated data. They put together a nifty infographic to help explain their conclusion. Check it out below.
