I’m going to date myself here a bit, but Electric Daisy Carnival numero uno was my first rave. I went to a few Moontribes before EDC, but those two events, albeit special for their own reasons, don’t belong on the same scale. I’ve been to many Electric Daisy Carnivals over the years, but I haven’t been to Vegas’ edition. I’m super looking forward to it. The date is saved, June 8-10, 2012.

Insomniac just released the line-up for this year. At least the first 140 artists that’ll be performing—even the freaking Blue Man Group will be doing their thing. Insomniac is basically going to completely transform the 1,000-acre complex that is Las Vegas Motor Speedway into an interactive carnival slash audiovisual experience. On deck this year: 500 theatrical performers, including fire twirlers, aerialists, dancers, pyrotechnics and stilt walkers, plus numerous full size amusement rides and attractions (for free) spread out among the seven stages.

“Last year’s introduction to Las Vegas was a remarkable event for Insomniac, gathering more than 230,000 people in the desert for an exciting new chapter in Electric Daisy Carnival history,” said Pasquale Rotella, founder and CEO of Insomniac Events. “As dance music continues to explode on a global scale, we’ll continue to push the boundaries of what makes Insomniac unique: a fully immersive festival experience that features hundreds of theatrical performers, interactive art installations, pyrotechnics and special effects, state of the art production, not to mention the largest stage in North America. I’m excited to share what we’ve been developing since last year’s show with our incredible fans.”
