Electric Daisy Carnival Las Vegas and Pasquale Rotella really went the extra mile while releasing their official lineup for their annual event in sin city. It started with some cryptic messages involving decoder rings, leaving avid fans up at night trying to establish who was playing the highly revered festival.
After some really bad puns were dropped from the EDC team like owlphabet and owlmost (can we never let this happen again ever), the lineup itself actually dropped this morning with words you can read with your eyes and not a sacred Egyptian telescope. For the most party, we look at the lineup and just see everyone.
That is usually the best way to describe EDC. Once again, they just got everyone that sits atop the EDM realm. You will of course see that, with the lineup being championed by ubiquitous names like Above & Beyond, Alesso, Avicii, Martin Garrix, Martin Solveig, and Nicky Romero, but the lineup also features a nice diversity that will have fans looking to escape the DJ Mag Top 100 happy.
A quick glance highlights names like Hotel Garuda, Bixel Boys, TOKiMONSTA, Alison Wonderland, Dr. Fresch (spelling error on the flyer), AWE, Flume, Disclosure, Jack Beats, Get Real (Green Velvet & Claude VonStroke), and much more. There's enough to both ends of the spectrum for most people, and highlights some upcoming artists that are doing big things.
This flyer below was decoded after EDC dropped their cryptic version, so that's why certain names are misspelled and it looks very rough, but this is what the lineup looks like. Take a glance, and see who catches your eye.
