EDC Las Vegas Goes Online For First Time

EDC is a part music, part art festival and part camp at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway

Check out these numbers:

3 Days

200 Artists

150,000 People

Those numbers are expected out of this year’s Electric Daisy Carnival also known as EDC, here in Las Vegas. But two facts remain. One is that not everyone can afford to be in Vegas in person. And second, not everyone wants to come to Las Vegas, EDC or not, while we are still in an ongoing pandemic. 

All good kids, no need for the added wrinkles on your head. EDC will be streaming. That’s right, for the first time ever the festival will be brought to the digital universe courtesy of the global platform Roblox. 

The online/digital space will have the same stages as in-person concert goers. They will also have the option to play games, check out Camp EDC and even pop into some of the meet-and-greets from some artists. The added benefit of being in your pj’s is just a plus. 

But, if you are greedy and want more then you’ve got it says Roblox. Sets from artist performances will be available for 24 full hours following each performance. More? Sheese, ok. At home viewers, or digiverse users as they are referred to, can interact with metaverse, in-person people, during the festival. So, if you can’t make it to the annual event, no worries, you can still feel like you are there. 

EDC, put on by Insomniac, is a part music, part art festival and camp that happens at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway. 

“Bringing people from all over the world together through art and experience is a goal we’re always working hard to achieve, and together with Roblox we are able to expand this into the digital world,”  says Pasquale Rotella, Founder and CEO of Insomniac. “This experience takes the creativity and inspiration behind EDC and all other festivals and events to new heights — bringing our vision to life digitally and opening up the wonder and magic of EDC to anyone of any age, no matter where they are. As we say at EDC, ‘All Are Welcome Here.'”

Among the 200 artists scheduled to play are Afrojack, Diplo, Zedd and Tiesto. Performances happen over three days with each day expecting 150,000 people. All of the information can be found at https://lasvegas.electricdaisycarnival.com/

Tickets are still on sale, although they are super limited. More info on Roblox can be found at their website, https://www.roblox.com/.

As always, check with the event organizers for last minute lineup changes and the latest on health and safety guidelines. Or, stay at home and enjoy it online. No judgement on whatever you choose.
