It's the best time of the year for music fans. Electric Daisy Carnival Las Vegas (EDC Las Vegas), one of the world's largest electronic music festivals, is quickly approaching. The three-day event, which takes place this year from June 16 to 18, packs a year's worth of entertainment and eccentricity into 72 hours. The party lasts until the sun rises, the art installations rival Burning Man and there's even a wedding chapel complete with an Elvis officiant. About the only thing you can't do there is get a tattoo—then again, tattoos, unlike marriages, are forever.
The 21-year-old festival—which attracted more than 400,000 people last year—boasts nine stages of music, amusement park rides and of course carnival performers. Headliners this year include Porter Robinson, Dillon Francis, Kygo, Major Lazer, Paul Van Dyk, Above and Beyond, and Marshmello — not to mention Alison Wonderland, Diplo and Jauz, who are playing a back-to-back set.
Whether you're a first-timer at the festival or a veteran, these five tips can help electrify your EDC experience.
1. Don't meet at the giant daisy.
This may seem like the most logical place to meet, but it's not because everybody else will congregate there at the end of the night. A better meeting spot would be the garages in the center of the track because each one is numbered, making it much easier to find your friends. When you first get inside, pick a garage number and a time to meet there at. This will help make sure nobody in your "rave family" gets lost, even if somebody's phone dies.
