Festival Recap: Electric Daisy Carnival Las Vegas 2021

What has 450,000 headliners, 200+ artists, 14 stages, art cars, and is 60,000 square feet of a ravers paradise?

Electric Daisy Carnival.

Electric Daisy Carnival Las Vegas celebrated its 10th birthday in 2021, but it was the 25th EDC Anniversary. Hands down, EDC is the best festival in the country—from the amazing production to the carnival rides—and of course the incredibly diverse lineup—this festival has it all.

EDC was a breath of fresh air during these scary times. Everyone looked incredible and had a special sparkle in their eyes. We waited 2 full years before we could be reunited under the Electric Sky, and it was 100% worth the wait.  

Here is my EDC 2021 recap:

Camp EDC 

Camp EDC was back for its 3rd year, and it looked POPPIN! Camp EDC is a 24 hour camping experience, conveniently placed right outside of the gates of the venue. It has ready-to-go tents, food vendors, a splash pool stage (with its own lineup) & lots of camp activities (like goat yoga). It's definitely the most convenient and efficient way to do EDC. I was truly jealous of all the Snapchats I got from camp, so you bet I won’t miss this again.

Day 1: 

EDC Ticket? Worth every penny. Seeing the speedway all light up again? Priceless. The lineup was stacked! We got to cry to  Seven Lions, sing with Alesso and headbang with Excision all in one night. We also got to see the youngest person ever perform at the festival, Moore Kismet at age 16! I hope you didn’t miss the surprise Illenium set at The Forest Art Car. We truly were “under the electric sky” during the 600 drone-light show (it was breathtaking) with the legendary fireworks show right after. We finished the night with pizza and learning The Institute of Abraxis. Couldn’t have asked for a better 1st day.

Day 2: 

I thought it wasn’t going to get any better, I was so wrong. EDC Night 2 brought the heat! We got blessed with  Louis The Child at Cosmic Meadow,  Wooliat BassPod  & Martin Garrix  at  Circuit Grounds. Diplo even brought out Lil Nas X  as a special guest! It was INSANE! Fun Fact: The only artist to play all 10 years of EDC Las Vegas is Tiësto!  This year he played at Kinetic Field.The drone show tonight paid homage to some old stage designs from Kinetic Field’s past:kineticCATHEDRAL, kineticGAIA, kineticLOVE, and kineticENERGY. It was spectacular.

Day 3: 

The third night was one I will never forget. I got to see Rezz, Duke Dumont,  Slander, and Kygo! I spent this night walking more than the other nights and exploring the art installations, performers and other parts of the venue. According to Insomniac, “This year also featured an expanded festival footprint, utilizing new areas of the venue," and they made great use of every inch. I visited Downtown EDC and got to witness people get legally married. I, of course, watched the final drone show and gawked at the fireworks one last time. Amazing.

Electric Daisy Carnival Las Vegas is scheduled to happen again in May of 2022. This was my 4th EDCLV and I gave away over 300+ mini plastic babies, walked over 28 miles, saw my favorite DJ’s and witnessed million dollar light shows...I cannot wait to do it all again. Don’t miss out, you can purchase tickets here!
