If you haven’t heard of EDC aka Electric Daisy Carnival, you should go back and read my post from a few months ago and watch that video, because that video makes it look like truly one of the best events I can imagine. Before last year, EDC was only held in LA, making it a near impossible event to attend for us East-Coasters because of the sheer cost of ticket + hotel + cross country flight. Last year they held one in Vegas and Orlando, making it a little more feasible, but this week they announced the first one in New York City. Venue and pricing details are sketchy, but it looks like popular thought is leading towards MetLife Stadium for $129 for two days, which is an amazing deal versus most other festivals out there. Tickets go on sale at 3PM today. Worth mentioning that if you plan on attending you should probably research insurance policies. As I’m going to both this and Bonnaroo this year, I will be also researching coffins over the next few weeks.
UPDATE: First phase of the lineup Released. Oh my god. After the jump.
The lineup for the 2-day fest will include: Afrojack, Alesso, AN21 & Max Vangeli, Art Department, Avicii, Bassnectar, Calvin Harris, Chuckie, Danny Tenaglia, Erick Morillo, Fatboy Slim, John Digweed, R3HAB, Thomas Gold and Hot Natured (Jamie Jones & Lee Foss).
