2019 will mark the second year that the flagship Las Vegas incarnation of Insomniac's Electric Daisy Carnival will have its own campground. As with last year campers get a Thursday night kickoff party - but this year's talent leans more towards the house end of the spectrum.
Last year's "Camp EDC" kickoff party featured sets by bass mainstays like Excision, G Jones and Habstract. This year FISHER tops the bill with support by tech house up-and-comers Latmun, Little Fritter, Mason Maynard and Melé.
EDC Las Vegas has taken place annually since 2011 after the death of Sasha Rodriguez at the 2010 edition forced organizers to relocate from the LA Memorial Coliseum. In addition to the inclusion of campgrounds, the 2018 installment of the festival also marked the year that Insomniac started organizing the festival in May instead of June.
The Camp EDC Thursday night kickoff party will take place on the Las Vegas Motor Speedway on May 16th. The remainder of EDC Las Vegas 2019 will run from May 17th-19th.
