DJ Snake Turns Down for EDC 2017

With the highly anticipated Electric Daisy Carnival two months away and still no lineup to drool over, wishful ticket holders are left instead to drool in their sleep; dreams of dancing under the electric sky to a faceless DJ’s set.

One face is clear, but he’s not playing for some reason. It’s DJ Snake.

This is not a drill. The man himself shared with fans earlier this week.

Surely some fans will be disappointed by the news. After all DJ Snake closed out Ultra with a bang, not to mention a special guest to boot. While it may be a disappointment, it’s one more piece to the lineup puzzle that headliners -- the official name given to EDC-goers -- are itching to finish.

In an effort to give something for anxious ticket holders, Insomniac Events has released some of the artists that will be headlining in Vegas during EDC Week leading up to the festival. Among those artists are RL Grime, GTA, Calvin Harris and more. Despite DJ Snake’s absence (did I mention Eric Prydz confirmed his no show too?) the world renowned festival should nevertheless live up to its reputation.

Stay tuned for the lineup to drop before EDC takes over the Las Vegas Motor Speedway June 16-18th!
