Using the attention and visibility from Electric Daisy Carnival-New York, Insomniac Events drew attention to their Snapchat account via the EDC Twitter account shortly before the string of artist announcements. Then, one-by-one, several artists that will be performing at EDC-LV between June 20-22 were released over the course of several hours.
As well as Andrew Rayel, GTA, and Cedric Gervais, 11 other acts were released via Snapchat. Those artists were: Hardwell, Dannic, Krewella, DJ Snake, Martin Garrix, Alvaro, UMEK, New World Punx, Orjan Nilsen, Bassjackers, and Quintino. No confirmation or mention of the artist release via Snapchat came from any other Insomniac Events related social media sites, or the official EDC-Las Vegas website. With a couple days remaining until the full announcement, let us know how you feel about the portion of the lineup that is known!
