Electric Daisy Carnival Las Vegas just dropped their lineup which features some new, but mostly familiar faces.
David Guetta, Deadmau5, A$AP Rocky, Diplo, Steve Aoki, Idris Elba, Tiësto, Armin Van Buuren, Kaskade and Martin Garrix lead the bill for this year’s gathering with support coming from Alesso, Zeds Dead, Alison Wonderland, Snakehips, Dillon Francis, Illenium, Paul Oakenfold, and Rusko. That list is just part of the 240-plus artists that will partake in the EDM festival’s 23rd Las Vegas edition.
Pasquale Rotella, CEO of promoter Insomniac Events, recruited scientist/TV host Bill Nye to help hype the festival in a trailer showcasing this year’s theme of “Kinetic Energy.” After an intro modeled after his popular Science Guy children’s show, Nye noted, “In classical physics we have two kinds of energy. We have kinetic energy, and we have potential energy. Just think of the potential of 140,000 people.” Check out the visual below.
This is shaping up to be one of the best events of the year. Ticketing information for EDC Las Vegas can be found here.
