Another year, and another chapter of Electric Daisy Carnival Las Vegas in the books. Once again,over 400,000 headliners from all over the globe came together to dance from dusk-till-dawn in celebration of EDC and its 21st anniversary. During the scorching weekend, we were immersed under the electric sky where ‘All Are Welcome.’ What Headliners experienced this year on the speedway was nothing but magic, but not to fret if you missed out, or simply want to re-live the epic three day adventure; we’ve got you covered.
With over 200 artists, there was no shortage of amazing acts across the many stages this year at the Speedway. We witnessed Alison Wonderland b2b Diplo b2b Jauz at kineticFIELD. We viewed the circuitGROUNDS’s 360-degree experience, surrounded with nearly 2,000 moving lights, 40 flame units, and 1,200 pyro units, and breathtaking sets from the likes of NW local Seven Lions, and the Bass Father himself, Excision.
We bid farewell to the bassPOD robots, reported to be appearing for the last time in 2017. There were also lots of surprise acts this year at EDC. One big surprise came when Metro Boomin brought Drake to the stage to perform his hit, Fake Love. Flosstradamus and Lil John performed together on the circuitGROUNDS stage, while Kaskade granted every headliner’s all-time wish by playing a secret set on the Kalliope Art Car. Long story short, this year’s Electric Daisy Carnival was hot…in more ways than one!
The “life-saver” stage was Corona’s Electric Beach, which created a beach-like paradise inside the festival, featuring a sand-filled area complete with a pool! And yes, the pool was refreshing on those 112-degree days! Aside from that, the Corona stage was adorned with palm trees and a lineup dropping beats from acts like Ghastly, Ookay, and Ephwurd. We really do hope this stage makes an appearance next year!
If you’re anything like us, we can’t stop listening to the amazing sets that happened all weekend. Red Bull TV live steam, brought the magic of EDC live showcasing nearly 100 sets and special guest performances. If you’d like to re-live the magic you can view RedBull.TV/EDC.
