Prepare to be amazed this time around at the Electric Daisy Carnival in Las Vegas as organizers take things up a notch. North America’s largest dance music festival never ceases to wow event goers as they add more offerings to VIP patron options as well as the standard tickets for the event. This summer, they’re taking the VIP experience to a whole new level, providing more viewing decks and courtyards filled with photobooths, ball pits, complimentary body paint, wi-fi hotspots and even a ferris wheel.
But it’s not just the VIP areas that have gotten grander this year – the lineup is bigger than it’s ever been before. Early bird tickets sold out faster than anyone could have anticipated, and luckily Insomniac has re-released a limited number of GA tickets to accommodate an even bigger crowd.
The excitement doesn’t just begin on 19th when EDC opens its doors for admission. In fact the fun starts the week of the event, with Tao Beach, Marquee Nightclub, Omnia and other joints kicking off EDC Week with appearances from Armin Van Buuren, Above and Beyond and Benny Benassi. After EDC concludes on the 21st, some plan on keeping the party alive in Vegas while others jet off to Europe for gigs at other summer music festivals. Afrojack, Alesso, Martin Garrix, Nicky Romero, among a few others will reunite in Neustadt-Glewe in Germany to perform at a smaller scale festival known as Airbeat One.
With all the celebrity attention that Vegas has been getting, it’s evident that the city has come a long way from merely just being a place for gambling. People used to travel far and wide just to play roulette and such, but the myriad of online gaming portals makes it possible for people to play anywhere and anytime, as Intercasino documents that these games are always within the consumer’s reach thanks to the latest advances in technology. These days, casino operators all over the world are banking on new opportunities to attract new demographics. Over in Germany, Casino Baden Baden often attracts the culturally refined as the spa town highlight hosts a variety of shows and classical rock concerts. In South Korea, they’re developing integrated resorts similar to what you’d find in Vegas so that visitors could have all sorts of entertainment in their hands. And in Vegas, they’re responding to the demand for different kinds of experiences by sponsoring music festivals, becoming a central location for the music industry.
