EDC 2013 Dates Announced
The L.A. promoters behind the massive Electric Daisy Carnival festival in Las Vegas announced its 2013 dates today: June 21, 22 and 23.
A "very" limited number of "pre-sale" tickets will be available starting Nov. 7, organizers said. Otherwise, the regular on-sale date is ...
... Jan. 9.
The lineup seems far from being announced.
Last year tickets sold out "weeks" before the party, according to an EDC statement. Crowds peaked at 115,000 on one of the three days last summer while the other nights saw six-figure or near six-figure attendance as well.
This will be the 17th annual edition of the party that started in L.A. but left town after controversy in 2010 softened political support for holding it at the publicly run L.A. Coliseum near USC.
Pasquale Rotella, the man behind EDC and promotion company Insomniac, says:
Our team is already working diligently with Las Vegas, the local authorities, and the Speedway to improve traffic flow to make EDC 2013 the best experience yet. And, of course, we're also brewing new imaginative ideas for next year.
Price? Here's what organizers say:
Insomniac will hold a special limited pre-sale on November 7 at 12 p.m. Pacific Time, with three-day General Admission tickets available at $199, then $259, and three-day VIP tickets available at $450, until allotments run out. Tickets for EDC Vegas 2013 officially go on sale on January 9, 2013 at 12 p.m. Pacific Time, with pricing to be announced in the coming weeks. A layaway pricing option will again be available during both on-sales, except at the lowest priced ticket tier. Single day tickets will not be available for this three-day experience.
