When it comes to EDC, who says the fun has to begin at the festival? What was once a three-day affair has evolved into a week-long fiesta now known as EDC Week. With more than 85 artists playing across 60 Vegas venues, there will be parties from the afternoon to early morning each day leading up this year’s Electric Daisy Carnival. There’s a little something for everyone!
With so many events to choose from this week, here are four worth checking out:
